Returned Goods & Credit Claims
For all claims, initial contact should be made to Gunz Dental Customer Service immediately on 1800 025 300 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Credit Returns will be accepted within 14 days of the Invoice Date, provided the goods have adequate shelf life, require no repackaging and are in an ‘as-new’ saleable condition. Goods that are not ‘as-new’, used or damaged in any way will not be accepted for credit. Return freight expenses will not be reimbursed.
Credit returns outside the 14 days will attract a restocking fee of 25% of the total value of the products returned, where there is not a valid reason for the return. Valid reasons include, but are not limited to: faulty products; damaged products; product with an expired use-by-date at the time of receipt; products received that differ from products ordered; over delivery. The restocking fee will be deducted from the credit note issued. Return freight charges will not be reimbursed where the customer is at fault and has not adhered to Gunz Company conditions.

Such claims must be made within 14 days, quoting invoice number.
