Terms and Conditions


Product Warranty

Invertek Drives Ltd products have a warranty period of 24 months from date of manufacture.

All other products have a warranty period of 12 months unless prior agreement with MCW.

On any engineered system containing sub components, potentially faulty sub-components will be covered within the agreed warranty period (12 months from date of despatch to customer).  Any labour required and supplied by MCW to replace these components will be charged at an agreed rate.

The warranty status of any returned product is determined at the sole discretion of Motor Control Warehouse and/or their suppliers after inspection and testing of the product.

 Returns & Replacements

A ‘return’ is described as a product that was incorrectly ordered by the customer or a product incorrectly sent out by MCW.

Products being returned to MCW must be appropriately packaged so that the original product packaging is not subject to damage, i.e. product boxes must be in their original condition as supplied.  The cost of returning the product to MCW must be prepaid by the sender.

For each package being returned, please include the GRN number on the packing slip and on the outside of the package so it can be clearly identified.

Note:  Goods being returned without a GRN will not be accepted.

Returns are only accepted with the prior agreement of MCW.  A restocking/handling fee of 40% of the original net cost may be applied.  This will be at the discretion of MCW.

Returns will only be accepted provided the goods are received back in their original package and in an unused condition within 14 days of despatch.

Damaged or used goods cannot be refunded.

Any goods received by the customer in a damaged condition or goods not as ordered must be notified within 24 hours of the customer receiving the goods.

If a replacement of goods is required, the customer will not be reimbursed for the original shipping cost and will be charged for the shipping of the replacement product.

Refunds will be made to the payment method chosen at the time of the order being placed.
