With regards to demo, second-hand, and refurbished stock, Muddle sells the product voetstoots (as is) but guarantees that the product is in working condition. As such, the buyer has 7 days to report any fault or issue which prevents the product from being used as intended, in order to claim a refund. The customer will either receive a similar product or a full refund of the purchase price – to be decided at Muddle’s discretion. Refunds will not be issued for minor cosmetic imperfections unless it hampers the functionality of the product.
In terms of special offers, should Muddle supply the wrong product or if the product is in any way faulty, we will exchange it for the correct one. However, if the product is no longer being offered at the special rate, it will not be replaced, and Muddle will refund the buyer's purchase price including delivery costs.
Certain items, where expressly stated, are also covered by manufacturer’s warranty, usually for a minimum period of 1 year from date of purchase. If the product becomes in any way faulty during the warranty period, or DOA (dead on arrival), please contact Muddle to request a Returns Authorization number (RMA), either by calling us, contacting us via email or via the website contact form.
In terms of hardware, all warranties are immediately null and void should any equipment be tampered with or should the seals on equipment be broken by anyone other than the manufacturers’ representative or should the goods be operated outside the Manufacturer's specifications.
Please confirm that the product is compatible with your system and any existing hardware prior to purchase as Muddle cannot accept hardware returns as a result of system incompatibility. System requirements are usually available on the manufacturer’s website.
Price changes and stock levels
We usually keep very little stock of items listed on our website at our offices, we order from stock that is held at our distributors as and when required. We update pricing on the website every day to ensure that our pricing matches that of our distributors. In some cases, changes in stock levels and pricing can occur before we have time to update the website. Therefore we usually recommend that you check stock levels and confirm pricing with us before placing an order.
Should a product’s price change during the time of your purchase and delivery, we will notify you and give you the opportunity to either:
a) Cancel the order and we will refund any monies paid, including delivery charges.
b) Purchase the product at the higher rate.
All pricing is subject to the ROE (rate of exchange) at our distributors.
