No dodgy parallel imports! All products listed on Wiseguys are backed by the full manufacturer’s warranty
As Wiseguys only deals direct with the manufacturers or their authorised NZ agents all of the products listed on Wiseguys are backed by the full factory warranty.
* As of July 2013, we now carry a small selection of parallel imported products. We stock these parallel imported products only because some brands are either unwilling to deal with smaller retailers like us for certain product lines, or the price gap between parallel imported products and locally supplied products is too great that people don't want to buy the locally sourced products. All of our parallel imports come with a 12 month factory equivalent warranty.
Duration of warranty
As warranty periods for various products and brands can differ the warranty period offered by the manufacturer is displayed on the ‘Overview’ page of each product available for purchase from Wiseguys.
Please note that on occasions Wiseguys can be supplied with incorrect information about the duration of the manufacturer’s warranty. In this scenario Wiseguys can only honour the actual manufacturer’s warranty period. If in doubt, please visit the manufacturer’s website for confirmation on the actual warranty period for a product.
Hassle free warranty claims with nationwide courier pick up or ‘drop off’ option
Although Wiseguys is an online only store that doesn’t mean making a warranty claim has to be a drama. If you are based in Auckland, products can be dropped off to either of our two authorised service centres in Penrose and in Glenfield. If you live outside of Auckland or if it is simply more convenient, Wiseguys can arrange the pick up of your item via courier. See our Returning a Product page for more info.
Return to Base (RTB)
Wiseguys will cover the cost of returning a product that is damaged during transit, faulty within 7 days of delivery or where the incorrect product has been supplied. Visit our Returning a Product page for more info.
For products that develop a fault after this time but are still within the manufacturer or extended warranty period, ‘Return to Base’ conditions apply which means it is the purchaser’s responsibility to cover the cost of returning the faulty product to Wiseguys or the manufacturer so a warranty claim can be processed. In this scenario Wiseguys can help out by arranging a pick up for you and providing discounted courier tickets for you to purchase.
