Returning your machine for inspection/repair
In certain circumstances, a machine may need to be returned to Lumag Distribution.
For this reason, we strongly suggest that you keep the original packaging additional cost will be incurred by the customer if the machine is not returned in the most cost-effective manner**.
Prior to starting the repair, the nature and cause of the fault will be determined. We will advise if our findings differ from your explanation of the fault.
If a manufacturing fault is found Lumag will cover the cost of collection*, Redelivery*, inspection parts, and repair time. Where no manufacturing fault is found, or the failure/problem is not covered by the Warranty, the costs incurred i.e. collection, re-delivery inspection, repair, and re-delivery costs will be chargeable to the owner of the item.

**Cost effective manner would be in the case of a small sub 100kg compactor or another boxed item would be in the good’s original box. In the event, Lumag repair an item under warranty and additional transport charges have been incurred due to an item being returned on a pallet rather than the original box, for example, we reserve the right to pass on the additional costs. We strongly recommend you keep the original packaging. For items that need to be transported on pallets, we require a reasonable amount of effort to be made to minimize the size of an item to 120cm length or width. This may include the removal of chippers hoppers or dumper butts as a couple of examples. the pallet company will charge double for pallets over 120cm length or width! This cost will be passed on even in the event of a valid warranty claim. Some items we understand that 120cm pallet size is not possible and no extra charge will be made.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the product is safely and suitably packaged for the return to Lumag Distribution LTD
It is the customers responsibility to drain fuel and oil for transport. Failure to do so may result it the courier refusing to transport.
