If a product qualifies for an advance replacement, the advance replacement and any associated delivery costs will be invoiced to your credit account, or where the customer does not have a credit account, payment in advance will be required.

After the returned product has been tested by DVS, either of the following will apply:

1) Fault found – a credit note will be raised against the invoice for the advanced replacement and any associated delivery costs and the customer will be refunded;
2) No fault found – the product will be returned to the customer, at the expense of the customer. No credit will be raised for the invoiced advance replacement and its associated delivery costs.

All products being returned to DVS must be returned within 14 days of the advance replacement requested date. Any products returned after this time will be subject to our standard warranty repair and returned to the customer. In these circumstances, no credit note will be issued for the advance replacement.
