  • Provide us with a detailed explanation of the claim / issue.
  • Provide confirmation that the product has been maintained and cared for in compliance with our instructions (including regular and appropriate cleaning).

Imex requires that the opportunity is given to resolve the issue with a spare part first. Imex requires that we are given the opportunity to inspect the product in its originally installed location, if this is not possible, this may lead to your claim being rejected.

If an Imex engineer is required to make a home visit to inspect a possible claim, Imex will require a deposit of £150, this will be held against a credit card. This charge will not be taken if the fault is found to be a manufacturing fault, the engineer will identify the issue and provide a full report. If this report identifies that the product is not to have a manufacturing fault the deposit will be processed and charged, and a full report supplied. If the engineer is required on site for longer than one hour a further £50 will be charged for each hour thereafter. We will require confirmation from the homeowner that they are happy for us to attend the call out based on these conditions.

We will hold no responsibility for refitting costs of any product that was not fully inspected before installation.

Any product that has been discontinued and is found to have a manufacturing Fault will be replaced with our nearest equivalent product available.

Imex Ceramics guarantee products against manufacture defect providing they have been installed, used, and regularly maintained in accordance with our instructions.

All internal working parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, are covered for 36 months from proof of purchase date (excluding toilet seats which are 12 months and Smart toilets unless extended Guarantee is purchased).

Our guarantee applies to the original purchaser only and is non-transferable.

This guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.

This guarantee is only applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Imex reserves the right to amend product specification and pricing without prior notice.

CALL OUTS

If a call out is requested to a faulty item a charge of £150 will be held against a credit card before any works are carried out. This charge will not be applied to the customer if the fault is ours.

If the fault is ours, we will repair or replace the broken or missing part. However if the fault is not ours then the customer will be given the option to have the fault repaired by us at a charge of £50.00 per hour.

We require a signature from the customer to accept responsibility for the payment for the repairs carried out by us, and payment will be required immediately after the repair is carried out.
