Repairs

If the problem with a product or service is minor, you must accept a free repair if we offer you one.

If we fail to give you a free repair within a reasonable time or cannot fix your problem, you can:

  • get it done elsewhere and pass on the costs to the we
  • ask for a replacement
  • ask for a refund
  • recover compensation for the drop in value below the price paid.

Repair notices

Under the Australian Consumer Law, If we accept goods for repair we must provide you with repair notices when:

  • the goods being repaired are capable of retaining user-generated data, for example, mobile phones, computers, portable music players and other similar electronic goods
  • it is the repairer’s practise to supply refurbished goods rather than repair defective goods or to use refurbished parts in the repair of defective goods.

You must receive the repair notice in writing before the goods are accepted by us for repair.

Replacements and refunds

You can ask for a replacement or refund if the problem with the product is major.

Replaced products must be of an identical type to the product originally supplied. Refunds should be the same amount you have already paid, provided in the same form as your original payment.

We may take into account how much time has passed since you bought the product considering the following factors:

  • type of product
  • how a consumer is likely to use the product
  • the length of time for which it is reasonable for the product to be used
  • the amount of use it could reasonably be expected to tolerate before the failure becomes noticeable.

For a major problem with services, you can cancel the contract and obtain a refund or seek compensation for the drop in the value of your services provided compared to the price paid.

What is a major problem?

A product or good has a major problem when:

  • it has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying it if they’d known about it
  • it is significantly different from the sample or description
  • it is substantially unfit for its common purpose and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time
  • it doesn’t do what you asked for and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time; or
  • it is unsafe.
  • A service has a major problem when:
  • it has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying it if they’d known about it
  • it is substantially unfit for its common purpose and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time
  • it does not meet the specific purpose you asked for and cannot easily be fixed within a reasonable time
  • it creates an unsafe situation.

Returning the product

If an item is deemed defective or faulty, then the item must be returned to our nominated address within 14 days after being notified of the fault or defect.

Flexi Africa has the absolute discretion in deciding whether an item is defective, faulty or not fit for its purpose. As such, Flexi Africa may require any evidence whatsoever in order to investigate your claim.

You are entitled to return a product if you believe that there is a problem. You are generally responsible for returning the product if it can be posted or easily returned. You are entitled to recover reasonable postage or transportation costs from we if the product is confirmed to have a problem, so keep your receipts.

When a product is too large, too heavy or too difficult to remove, then we are responsible for paying the shipping costs or collecting the product within a reasonable time of being notified of the problem. Examples include:

  • a widescreen TV
  • a bed
  • an extension ladder stuck in the extended position
  • a product that has been subsequently installed, like a stove or a dishwasher.

You do not have to return products in the original packaging in order to get a refund.

If the product is found not to have a problem, you may be required to pay the transport or inspection costs. An estimate of these costs may be provided to you before the product is collected.
