When comparing the guarantees or warranties of different companies, please consider the following:

  • How long the company has been operating; how stable are they, will they be around to honour the warranty offered and deliver the required after-sales service.
  • What is the company’s track record; take a look at their portfolio and ask for customer reviews.
  • How comprehensive is the warranty; does it cover all components or are certain excluded or subject to shorter periods. Pay careful attention to any exclusions.
