General Warranty Terms

The terms below are subject to individual product warranties but serve as a general warranty policy for Shelden Healthcare UK Ltd that specifically covers care equipment.

Warranty Terms

If an item is faulty, we will need to establish proof of purchase and to ascertain whether an item is faulty or whether it has failed due to misuse. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 applies if a fault occurs within 14 calendar days of delivery, and that item can be returned for a choice of a refund, repair or replacement. From 14 days to 6 months from delivery, any faulty item can be returned for a repair or replacement so long as the fault lies with the product rather than any misuse. If we have already repaired or replaced and the item becomes faulty again, then you can claim a refund or a price reduction should you wish to keep the item. After six months, the onus is on the customer to "prove" that the product is faulty. In any case, if we cannot agree on the cause of the fault, we may wish to obtain a second opinion - for example, from the manufacturer or an independent expert. Where an independent expert is to be used we will seek to agree to this in writing with the customer.

Exceptions to Warranty

A consumer cannot claim for defects that are brought to their attention before the sale, or if the consumer examines the goods before purchase and any defects should have been obvious.

A consumer cannot claim for damage they cause or if they simply change their mind about wanting the goods.

A consumer cannot claim if they chose the product themselves for a purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to Shelden Healthcare UK Ltd and they then find that the item is simply unsuitable for that purpose.

A consumer has no rights to claim for faults that appear as a result of fair wear and tear.
