  2. Delivery and shipment
    1. Please first check the completeness of the product for repair before sending to Zippy. Additionally, please ensure that the package of the product itself is strong to withstand the impacts during transportation. If the product to repair is incomplete or damaged due to poor packaging during transportation, the RMA center will charge you related fees depending on actual arrival conditions.
    2. Please do provide the RMA no. assigned to you on the packaging (sticker on the carton) of the product and the attached document. At the same time, please fill in your address correctly in the e-RMA system after sending the product so that both parties can accurately identify the shipping progress of the product. (Sending information: Consign method such as UPS or DHL etc., consign order number, number of boxes …etc.) The sender will bear responsibility for the shipment if the product was miss-sent or returned due to insufficient information provided by the sender.
    3. The exchanged defective component will not be returned to the customer with the repaired product. All quoted prices for product repairs do not include freight; freight is paid by the sender each one way trip, which means that you are responsible for the freight charge when you send the RMA product for repair to the RMA center. And Zippy will pay for the freight when returning the repaired product to you. Your Zippy sales representative will otherwise notify you when there are exceptions.
    4. USA, Germany and China repair centers are responsible for local shipping charges only. Please provide your UPS/DHL or other courier account number if any for smooth returned shipment operation and shipping cost calculation.
  3. Repair Costs
    1. Repair cost: Subject to the failure cause, the RMA will quote differently to the customers accordingly. Pease contact the RMA directly.
    2. In order to avoid the system burden caused by aging parts and to reduce shipping costs for both parties, repairs will no longer be applied on parts that have been out of the factory for more than 5 years. Therefore, please contact your Zippy representative directly to purchase a new product to replace them. Exceptions will only be based on the agreement between the local RMA center and the customer.
    3. Upon arrival at the RMA, the repaired product will be functionally tested according to the actual product received, and it is not possible to replace all the accessories (e.g., iron brackets, screws, etc.) according to the new product. Besides, please be aware that there will be extra cost associated with the request for the new replacement of the accessories. If you are sending back a product that is not a Zippy product or an unnecessary accessory, please do provide the details. If not, Zippy will not be responsible for the keeping and return of the product.
    4. If the RMA is unable to contact the customer after the quote or repair more than 1 month, the customer agrees automatically to discard the product and Zippy reserves the right to dispose of the repaired product at its own discretion.
  4. Repair lead time
    If there is no serious damage or material shortage, the RMA will complete the repair and send back the repair unit within 14 working days (excluding holidays); if there are any other exceptions, the RMA will contact you separately on his own.
