Warranty

New Machine Retail Sales Warranty (Petrol Vehicles)

We would like our customers to have complete peace of mind, so all fully assembled products sold by Storm Buggies (Performance Toys Ltd) are supplied with a RETURN TO BASE 12 month warranty for the original purchaser on both main parts and labour costs. Electrical parts and other parts not deemed 'main' parts are covered by a 6 month RETURN TO BASE warranty.

This is a guarantee against manufacturing structural or mechanical defects and within these periods, we will replace non wear and tear parts, providing the part is found by the company to be defective. Please see guidelines below for a breakdown of parts deemed wear and tear parts and so not covered under warranty. In some cases, defective parts must be sent back to the company for inspection if asked for, prior to us sending out replacement parts. The purchaser must pay the postage cost for the returned part but this cost will be refunded once the new part is dispatched. We have the final decision with regards to replacement parts, no correspondence will be entered into.

By this consumer guarantee, Performance Toys Ltd guarantees the product to be free from defective materials and workmanship for the stated period of warranty, from the date of purchase as shown on the invoice. Should the machine fail due to neglect, unreasonable use, accident, crash, corrosion, alterations, modifications, lack of regular service & maintenance (PRI) or failure to follow instructions properly then the part will not be covered and all warranty will be void.

Please note that there is NO WARRANTY for any product that is used commercially, for racing, as part of a venture, loaned, resold or rented out by the purchaser.

Owners Responsibility - Servicing & Maintenance

In order not to invalidate the manufacturer's warranty, all customer machines must be kept regularly serviced and maintained as required by the manufacturer and the distribution agent. It is also necessary for basic maintenance such as tightening of nuts & bolts, frequent chain lubrication, brake adjustments, tune up, carburettor adjustments, choke adjustments or spark plug maintenance to be carried out at frequent intervals.

Regular servicing as outlined in the manufacturers handbook (supplied) must be undertaken, servicing can only be carried out by a qualified vehicle technician and an original invoice with the full breakdown of work carried out must always be retained. In the event of a warranty claim, these original documents must be available for validation in order for the claim process to begin.

Owners Responsibility - Essential Safety 'Pre Ride Inspection' (PRI)

Each and every time our product is used, it should ONLY be driven once an adult is 100% confident that they have completed their Pre Ride Inspection (PRI). This information can be found in the user manual supplied but can also be emailed upon request.

Before buying a machine from us please bear in mind that they are not the same as cars and so will require regular maintenance and complete safety check over. Failure to do this could result in a number of avoidable issues and machine down time.
