Special arrangement for non-repairable products
Items which are within the warranty period but are not repairable, TecoBuy UK will provide you with a special arrangement, which is one of the below:
- Issue compensation (TecoBuy UK’s Store Credit) of a certain percentage of the item’s price, based on when the product was bought and how long it has been used, if less than 1 month, we will treat it as 1 month.
(Fixed at 8% of item’s price per month)
Assuming your item’s purchase price was $1000, was used for 2 months and is seen as a non-repairable warranty case. The compensation offered to you would be $840 in store credit.
- Replace the item with another which could be refurbished to a brand new quality. The item for this replacement maybe the same model or an item with similar specifications, value, and brand. The remaining warranty period will transfer to the replaced item.
*TecoBuy UK reserves the right to determine which option to provide to you.
