We know from the feedback we receive from you that you love us to hunt down the best products at the best prices. To do this we try to keep all of our costs down including the cost of covering returns from our customers and do not accept returns except where the basis of the return is covered by the Consumers Guarantees Act or Fair Trading Act. So when you’re at the checkout, take a second to run your eye over your order for any slips of the finger before submitting because once you’ve submitted it, it’s too late!!
We make every effort to make sure our product descriptions are as detailed as possible and that includes sizing and colour guides for our clothing type product. Please choose carefully as we are unable to exchange product once you’ve received your order unless we have made a genuine mistake in our description (and yes, we are human) or where your request to exchange is covered by the Consumers Guarantees Act or Fair Trading Act.
If you think you have a case for a genuine exchange request then please contact us first before sending your order back to us as it may get declined and returned to you. In all cases Proof of purchase is required in order to get an exchange. Please note products returned to us for an exchange must be in a resalable condition with packaging intact and all labels, etc returned with the item.
Sporting Good Specialists Limited’s warranty policy covers our products for 12 months from the purchase date. Warranty claims cover any fault, defect or failure occurring as a result of the manufacturing process. Damage or faults occurring as a result of misuse, accident, or wear and tear is not covered by our warranty policy.
If you feel that your purchase has a fault that is covered under warranty please contact us, including as much detail as possible (including a photo of the issue if possible or applicable) so that we can assess the problem and advise you of a solution. This could be a repair, replacement or refund. We reserve the right to provide the best possible solution based on availability of stock.
Consumer Guarantees Act 1993
- The Consumer Guarantees Act sets out minimum standards for goods sold by sgssports.co.nz. In the event that goods sold are not of good quality or are faulty, we have the right to repair, replace or refund the product.
Fair Trading Act 1986
- The Fair Trading Act is designed to protect the customer being misled, either intentionally or unintentionally. This applies to all aspects of the promotion and sale of goods and services including: pricing; where the product was made; where the product is from; the meeting of New Zealand safety standards; availability of products in store and the sales techniques used. The Commerce Commission enforces the Fair Trading Act
How to return a product:
If you think that you have a valid reason to return under the policies described above please contact us before sending your order back to us as the processes we use are different depending upon your situation. If you don’t contact us first it could delay your request or result in your claim being rejected. In all cases proof of purchase will be necessary to process your request.
Change to orders
Unfortunately, once you’ve submitted your order and payment has been accepted we can’t make any changes to it – that includes sizes, colours, quantity and address details.
Out of Stock and Backorders
While we do everything we can to make sure our stock levels are accurate at all times there may be occasions due to unforeseen circumstances where we are unable to fulfil your order or source a replacement product. If this should occur we will contact you and offer either a store credit for the value of your purchase or a full refund. Please note that we cannot offer a backorder or ‘rain check’ facility.
