How to Return Products

To be eligible for a repair, replacement, refund, order cancellation or return, you must contact us via email at sales@vrs4x4.com.au within 14 days from purchase, include your order number and any other necessary supporting documentation.

Where a refund is payable, it will be refunded in the same form as the original purchase or to the same account or credit card used to make the original purchase. We will endeavour to process your refund within 14 days from date of confirmation if we agree to pick up the products. If we have not agreed to pick up your products, we reserve the right to withhold the refund until we receive the products or have sufficient evidence that you have sent the products to us.

VRS will cover the cost associated with the return:

(a) If a Product you have purchased fails to meet one or more Consumer Guarantees under the ACL or you have rights under a Non-Excludable Term, we shall bear any cost of shipping the said Product (the Returned Product) back to us, as well as any cost of shipping any replacement Product to you.

(b) If the Product is too large, too heavy, or otherwise too difficult to be removed and returned by you, and it is believed by you (acting reasonably) to be eligible for a repair, replacement, refund, order cancellation or return under the terms of this Returns Policy, the ACL or a Non-Excludable Term, then we will organise for the postage, shipping, transportation or collection of the Returned Product, at our cost.

You will be responsible to cover the cost associated with the return:

(c) If you ordered incorrectly and wish to replace with a different product. The Returned Product(s) must be in “As-New” condition, packaged securely in its original packaging, not used, not assembled, with all original items including any accessories and manuals included.
