Returns Policy

Australian Consumer Law

Products sold by Aidacare Pty Limited ABN 40 134 398 833 (Aidacare) come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law. Consumers are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. Consumers are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.  

A "major failure" as defined in the Australian Consumer Law broadly is one where a reasonable consumer would not have acquired the goods had the consumer been fully aware of the failure, the goods are unsafe, substantially unfit for purpose or departed significantly from the demonstration model or sample. In this regard you should refer to the Australian Consumer Law.

Consumer guarantees cannot be excluded and are in addition to any express warranty (warranty against defects) you are given.

There may be circumstances where you are not entitled to a remedy. 

For further information about the Australian Consumer Law and consumer guarantees, visit www.consumerlaw.gov.au 

Express Warranty 

In addition to all rights and remedies to which consumers may be entitled under Australian Consumer Law and any other relevant legislation, Aidacare offers a further Express Warranty for products.

The benefits given to consumers by the Express Warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies that may be available under a law in relation to the products to which the Express Warranty relates. This Express Warranty does not exclude, restrict or modify any such statutory rights or remedies.

Aidacare warrants the products sold by it are free from defects in material and workmanship for the warranty periods specified.

Restocking Fee 

Aidacare reserves the right to apply a restocking fee of 20%. The customer will be contacted after the goods have been assessed to advise if the restocking fee applies.
