Faulty Goods
At KAYAKER Ltd we pride ourselves on selling only good quality products, but we know that occasionally things can go wrong. If you receive a faulty product we will either repair it or replace it, depending on the nature of the fault. Please note that we will only refund on a faulty item if it is not repairable and if it is discontinued. Either way we need to receive the item back to inspect it.

If the fault occurs during the warranty period and after the product has been in use, please contact KAYAKER Ltd or the retail store where you purchased it to claim your warranty.

If you purchased your product from any of our dealers, please return it to the store where it was purchased.
If you purchased directly from KAYAKER Limited (whether via this website or not) please contact Kayaker Limited at 06 323 4000 as soon as you can. We will talk you through the options you have and will ask you to send the product back to us to KAYAKER Limited. Strictly delivery with signature only.
All received warranty claims are inspected and in some cases we may ask the manufacturers opinion. We offer the following options on approved warranty claims (in this order):
• repair of the product
• replacement with an identical product
• if the product is not any longer available, we may offer an alternative product or a refund.

Please choose carefully as we do not refund money if you simply change your mind. We will however help you exchange a product if you have purchased the wrong size, or if the product that does not suit your needs exactly. We will endeavour to find the correct product size for you or a product that will suit you better.

For the purpose of the return and refund policy the boats that have been put on water are considered used.

Items purchased on special can’t be returned and are non-refundable.

Please note that we only refund approved warranties and once we have explored all other ways of making the product good for you. We will repair the product, if it is repairable; we will replace the product, if it is not repairable and we will offer an alternative or better product if the identical product is no longer available. We take up to two working days to determine if you are eligible for a refund or if we can make it good.
