BRITAX Warranty

Guarantee 

Australian Consumer Law

On all of our goods, you have the benefit of a statutory consumer guarantee. In summary, goods are guaranteed to be of “acceptable quality” (fit for purpose), goods are guaranteed to match any description against which they are sold and goods are guaranteed to match any sample against which they are sold. These consumer guarantees are provided for by the Australian Consumer Law and, if you believe anyone of these guarantees is not satisfied by a Britax product, you have rights under the Australian Consumer Law to enforce that guarantee.

Your rights under the statutory consumer guarantees are set out in the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s Consumer Guarantees – A Guide for Consumers.

In addition to the statutory consumer guarantees, BRITAX offers its own company warranty on all of its products. You, therefore, have the option of seeking redress for defective or faulty product either under the BRITAX company warranty or the statutory guarantees. After the Britax company warranty expires, you still have your rights under this statutory consumer guarantees.

Depending on the product involved, the following Britax company warranty applies:

  • BRITAX Safe-n-Sound Warranty;
  • BRITAX Safe-n-Sound Extended Warranty;
  • BRITAX  Wheeled Goods Warranty;
  • Steelcraft Warranty; and
  • BOB Warranty.

  • 2 years on softgoods supplied with your Safe-n-Sound car seat at the time of purchase (including accessories); and

This company warranty does not apply to second hand or aftermarket goods or goods used for rental, hire or other commercial purposes or to any claim where the damage or fault is, in whole or part, the result of incorrect installation, mistreatment, intentional damage, any use other than use in normal conditions or any use otherwise than in accordance with the instruction manual for that product.
