The Value of Product Warrant
It is often necessary to reassure a customer about the product they intend to buy or have bought. This minimizes or eliminates anxiety that occasionally comes with certain purchases especially those of high cost.
What is Warranty?
Britannica online defines warranty as “a promise or guarantee made by a seller or lessor about the characteristics or quality of property, goods, or services.”
Manufacturers have long used warranty to reassure buyers about the quality of goods or services offered. A warranty shows that manufacturers shall stand by their product and that if it fails they will either replace it or repair it.
A warranty is therefore a written guarantee issued to the purchaser of an item by the manufacturer through the retailer, promising to repair or replace the item if necessary within a specified period of time.
Why is warranty important?
- A warranty is important for it assures you that the things you buy are of good quality and don’t contain manufacturing defects.
- A warranty also gives a consumer the right to ask the manufacture to deal with any issues according to the terms and conditions of the purchase contract
- A warranty increases consumer confidence in the product
It is advantageous for a reseller such as BOLD Industrial when they deal with products whose manufacturers are synonymous with quality and who are able to back that promise of quality with written warranty.
BOLD’s range of products are from well-known and respected manufacturers such as BOSCH, Stanley, Black & Decker, DeWalt, INGCO, Silverline, Makita, Tolsen, Tuf-fix, among others. We are therefore able to pass on manufactures’ warranty to customers based on the existing warranty terms of these brands:-
