|USA and rest of the world:
Some orders may be for very large or heavy items. In these cases, Covenco may contact you to arrange suitable shipping, which may incur additional shipping fees. In this case, Covenco will contact you within one working day of receiving your order.
If your order contains multiple items, Covenco will endeavour to combine them into a single consignment. If, however, the consignment is too large to be combined, you may be required to pay additional shipping costs. In this case, Covenco will contact you within one working day of receiving your order.
Please report the faulty part(s) to your account manager or via email to: [email protected]. Please include the following information:
- Sales Order Number
- SKU / Product ID
- Product Serial Number
- The name of the person and company that placed the order
- Your telephone number
You will then be contacted by a member of our Logistics team, who will issue an RMA number and advise you of our preferred method of return.
You will need to ensure the part(s) are suitably packaged for shipping and provide the following information:
- Sales order number
- Part number
- Serial number

In parallel, if you have requested a replacement item to be supplied a new Covenco sales order will be raised, and the part(s) despatched in the normal manner. This new sales order will result in an additional despatch note and invoice.
These new documents will reference your original purchase order.
Once the faulty part(s) have been received and checked, a credit will be raised against the first sales invoice.
RETURNS POLICY CONDITIONS
1.1 Any goods to be returned by the Customer to Covenco will only be dealt with by Covenco in accordance with the provisions set out in this policy.
1.2 Where the Customer wishes to return goods (for any reason) the Customer should first contact it’s account manager at Covenco. Should the problem not be resolved to the Customer’s satisfaction, the Customer should contact the Operations Director of Covenco. The Customer acknowledges that delays will occur in cases where any of the requested information is not provided.
1.3 Returns Material Authorisation (“RMA”). An RMA number must be obtained from the Covenco before any return will be processed. Goods returned without a valid RMA number are likely to be rejected by Covenco. RMA numbers are valid for 15 days from the date of issue. If the Goods are not returned within 15 days the RMA will be cancelled. If the Customer still wishes to return the goods a new RMA number must be requested. When preparing the goods for return, the Customer must ensure that the RMA number is clearly visible on a label on the outer packaging.
1.4 Incorrectly ordered goods. Incorrectly ordered goods are the responsibility of the Customer. The Customer acknowledges that Covenco is under no obligation to accept the return of incorrectly ordered goods.
1.5 Dead On Arrival (“DOA”) Goods. DOA goods are those found to have a fault on delivery. Someone with technical knowledge must confirm the fact that there is a fault and the Customer must provide as much specific technical detail as is reasonably possible. DOA goods must be notified within 7 days of delivery in order to qualify for credit or replacement. Credit or replacement is at Covenco’s option and absolute discretion.
The freight / shipping costs to return DOA goods will be met by Covenco only where a RMA number has been requested and the shipping arrangements have been followed.
1.6 Faulty after 7 Days. The fault must be confirmed by someone with a technical knowledge, please be specific. Goods reported as faulty after 7 days but within 1 month from the date of delivery of such goods will be accepted back for evaluation. A decision will then be made to either repair or replace. The Customer acknowledges that no credit or refund will be given except in exceptional circumstances and at Covenco’s absolute discretion. Covenco will meet the costs of returning the goods and of sending replacement goods to the Customer.
1.7 No Defect Found (“NDF”). If goods are returned and are found to be of NDF status, a handling / restocking fee of at least £50 or 10% of the sale value, which ever is greater, will be invoiced separately to the Customer. The percentage charged will depend on amongst other things the amount of labour involved in processing the return, together with the condition of the packaging and its contents. Covenco reserves the right to insist on a purchase order covering this cost and the return freight cost before accepting the goods for return.
1.8 Goods Returned Not In Original Condition. Goods returned where the packaging and/or contents are found not to be in original condition are likely to be rejected on arrival. Should Covenco agree to accept such goods at its absolute discretion Covenco reserves the right to impose a handling / restocking fee of at least £50 or 10% of the original sale value. Should items be damaged in transit during their return to Covenco due to insufficient packaging then it is the responsibility of the Customer, and not Covenco to take this matter up with the carriers.
1.9 Packaging and labelling. Where possible, the packaging of the goods being returned should be protected by using an outer cover. The Customer should not write on, or attach labels to, the original packaging itself if this can be avoided. When preparing the goods for return the Customer should ensure that the RMA number is easily visible on a label on the outer covering.
1.10 Notwithstanding clause 1.7 if the goods are found to be faulty but:
(a) The fault arises as a result of the Customer’s negligence.
(b) The fault arises as a result of any misuse, or physical damage including but not limited to dropping, spillage or foreign objects or accidents.
(c) The Customer makes any further use of the Goods after giving written notice of a fault.
(d) The fault arises because the Customer has failed to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines whether oral or in writing as to the storage, assembly, use, handling or maintenance of the goods.
(e) The fault arises, as a result of any alteration, servicing or repair of the goods not made by Covenco.
– then Covenco UK Limited may at its absolute discretion refuse the returned items.
