DOA requests are to be processed in accordance with warranty return procedure and marked DOA where indicated. In the case of DOA, unless unavailable, the replacement will be new stock.

Warranty returns process
Complete a warranty claim form indicating the serial number and reason for claim.

  1. Partner will, at own expense, return the faulty part to the Goldtel Repair Centre. A copy of the completed Warranty Claim form MUST be included with the returned item. Items received without serial numbers / damaged serial numbers / defaced serial numbers and items showing signs of malicious damage or damage caused by any act of God such as lightning, fire or flood will not be replaced under warranty. Partner will be notified of claim rejection and reasons for such a rejection. Partner will then in writing either request a return of hardware, issue replacement order at Partner cost as per current price list, issue repair order.
  2. Goldtel will dispatch a replacement part [new or repaired] at our expense, to the Partner within 3 working days of receiving the faulty item and after warranty has been verified as a warranty claim.
  3. If the warranty claim form is not included, is incomplete, or contains insufficient fault information it will be returned to for completion before any replacement actions are taken.
  4. Goldtel will issue a return invoice at no charge and include a RA (Return Authorization) number.

If the faulty item is damaged or in such a condition that it cannot be cleaned, repaired and returned to replacement stock, the originator will forfeit warranty, and the faulty item will be returned without being repaired.

Dead-on-arrival (DOA) can only be claimed within 10 days of leaving Goldtel stores. A replacement will be sent once original part is received to verify the DOA claim. Original packaging must be provided and any defaced, damaged, tampered with serial numbers will void claims. Physical malicious and or other visible damage will void claims.

Repaired items carry a 90-day warranty, or the remainder of the new-system warranty, whichever is greater.
