Returns are subject to Operator’s Manual Sales and Refunds Policy

Standard Return Policy

There are a few important things to keep in mind when returning a product purchased online from Operator’s Manual:

• You can indicate your intent to return within 14 days of receiving your product. You have a further 10 days after indicating your intent to return to then return your products or arrange for their collection. This option is in addition to your consumer rights to return defective products.

• Only items that have been purchased directly from Operator's Manual, either online or at an Operator's Manual Retail Store, can be returned to Operator's Manual. Operator's Manual products purchased through other retailers must be returned in accordance with their respective returns and refunds policy.

• Please ensure that the item you're returning is repackaged in the original packaging, including any accessories, manuals, and documentation that were included when you received it.

• A copy of the issued RMA must be enclosed in the package being returned. The RMA number is used for receiving, processing, tracking, and shipping customer returns. All RMA's expire if the item is not returned within ten (10) days of receipt of RMA. If a return authorization expires or is canceled, it cannot be reissued.  

• Do not return any items until receipt of your Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. Items received without a Return Authorization will be returned to you.

• Returns falling outside the Warranty Policy may be subject to a 15% restocking fee. We advise customers to purchase products from Operator’s Manual with care and consult an Operator’s Manual agent for guidance on the application or capability of a product. All returns will be carefully inspected before issuing a refund or exchange.
