Warranty Claims and Returns
Warranty Claims and Services
We provides full warranty services on all items sold by Valley Scales.
All warranties are the manufacturer's as specified on product specification sheets, manufacturer's product documentation and/or product pages on the site. These can range from 1 to 5 years with limitations as specified by the manufacturer.
Valley Scales processes all warranty claims on your behalf. With over 35 years experience in the maintenance and repair of weighing instruments, our affiliated service center will coordinate with the manufacturer to replace or to repair the concerned instrument.
Proof of purchase or receipt is generally required but we can assist in validating your warranty if you cannot locate it.
For warranties claims, please send a WMA (Warranty Claim Authorization) request by email to email@example.com. A WMA number and shipping coordinates will be sent to you within the next few business days.
Upon receipt of your item, Valley Scales will coordinate with the manufacturer and confirm to you their assessment by email. All warranty processing is free of charge. Parts and labour are also free of charge on all manufacturer approved claims.
However, you will be responsible for paying your shipping costs on warranty services. If you are shipping an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance.
