Accessories Return Policy

Specialist motorcycle servicing, parts and apparel

This Policy forms part of the Pitlane Motorcycle Accessories Terms and Conditions, and so words defined in the Terms and Conditions have the same meaning in this Policy, unless the context indicates otherwise. Nothing in this Policy is intended to limit your statutory rights in any way. The policy applies to product bought from Pitlane Motorcycle Accessories. If you are not satisfied with the product, it can be returned Pitlane Motorcycle Accessories to and we will either have it repaired / replace the product or provide a refund subject to the below terms. Certain parts of this Policy do not apply to Sales Items or used products, and this is indicated in the relevant sections below. Used Products are returned products that are offered for sale at discounted prices, because their original packaging is damaged, unsealed or missing, or the products show signs of handling and/or re-packaging.

 

Preparing your products for a return

To ensure your request is processed as quickly as possible you are responsible for the following when returning your products;

  • package your products safely and securely for protection during transit;
  • clearly mark your return reference number on the outside of the parcel; and
  • Include all accessories and parts that were sold with the product.

Failure to adhere to any of these requirements could delay the processing of your request or result in its decline altogether.

    3. Standard Warranty
      1.

Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice repair / replace the product (if such repair is possible / we have the same product in stock to use as a replacement) or process and pay a refund into your account of the purchase price of the product.

      1. A direct warranty product is a product for which the relevant manufacturer wishes to manage defective returns itself, directly with the customer, and not through Pitlane Motorcycle Accessories.
      2. If a direct warranty product turns out to be defective or otherwise of poor quality, please notify us and we will provide you with the relevant manufacturer’s contact details. Alternatively, you can notify the relevant manufacturer directly if you already have its details.
