REPLACEMENT & REFUND POLICY
The Pet Centre is here "to enhance the lives of New
Zealander’s by helping them nurture happy, healthy pets."
We make every effort to ensure that we carry a good range of
products sourced from within New Zealand and overseas to meet your every need.
This policy has been established to give you the comfort of knowing
that, subject to the conditions set out below, if any product you purchase
online from The Pet Centre is found to be defective, or it does not meet your
needs, The Pet Centre will happily repair or replace the product, or offer you
a refund or credit. This Policy includes the rights you have under the New
Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act (see below) and provides you with benefits in
addition to those rights, because your satisfaction is very important to us.
Please choose your purchases carefully as we do not provide a
refund if you change your mind. If the products you purchase from us are faulty, we will meet our
obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act and either repair, replace or refund
the product, depending on the nature of the fault.
A product may be exchanged up to 30 days after purchase when proof
of purchase can be provided. The products must be in saleable condition, with
all original packaging intact. Products that have been used, damaged, or have
seals broken cannot be exchanged.
PREMIUM CAT &
DOG FOOD GUARANTEE
We have a 100% bottom of the bag, money back palatability guarantee
on most of our brands of premium cat and dog food. If your pet will not eat the
food, exchange it for another variety or receive a full refund of the purchase
price. We do, however, encourage all pet owners to transition over a period of
7 days minimum. Proof of purchase must be provided.
If the product is damaged when it arrives, please take a date
stamped photo, and send it through to us at email@example.com, so that
we can follow-up with our courier company. We will need to get the product back
to Lower Hutt and we will contact you to discuss the details.
If you wish to exchange a product, get in touch with the online
team and we will advise you on how to make your exchange as easily as possible.
The item being exchanged does need to be returned. It is up to you to organise
shipping and pay for the shipping costs associated with sending it back to us.
REFUND OF SHIPPING
The only refunds that can be made for shipping costs will be if you
are accidentally charged the wrong freight costs either by selecting the wrong
shipping option, or something else goes wrong through the ordering process.
HOW LONG WILL IT
Once the goods have been received at the Lower Hutt branch, we will
process the return and confirm by email when the funds have been placed back on
your credit card used for the order.
The refund can take up to 5 – 7 business days after it has been
approved due to bank transaction time frames.
WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS
UNDER THE NZ CONSUMER LAW?
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the NZ
Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure
and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You
are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to
be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Where a failure does not amount to a major failure, The Pet Centre
is entitled to choose between providing you with a repair, replacement, or
other suitable remedy. Any cost incurred by you in returning the product to The
Pet Centre will be borne by you..
