Steps to filing your claim
If you have an issue with your product and suspect that it needs repairs or even a replacement, it may mean that it’s time to file a claim with your manufacturer. But how can you begin that process? Here are the steps to follow:
- Review the terms of your warranty. Ensure that you fully understand what is covered and what is not; you don’t want to go through the claims process for something that is actually classified as accidental damage, like if you dropped your phone, for example. Once you read the fine print, you can hopefully understand whether your situation is eligible for warranty coverage.
- Go to the manufacturer’s website. You will be able to find a section to file a claim. Alternatively, if this isn’t apparent, simply Google “company name warranty claim” and it will bring you to a page that allows you to either submit a claim online or contact the company via phone to start the process.
- Wait to hear back. It may take some time to hear back about the next steps in your claims process. This includes learning whether you are qualified to receive repairs, as well as any steps you need to take to get those repairs. The company will inform you whether you need to bring your product to a local retailer, mail it in, or if they will alternatively be sending you a replacement.
- Understand the terms. Have the manufacturer agreed to cover the full costs, part of the costs, or nothing? Understand what they are offering you so that you can make an informed decision.
