No Exchange or Refund Required:

There is no legal responsibility to exchange and/or refund when:

  • Customers have simply changed their minds about the goods

Return/Exchange of faulty products^

If you believe an item is not of acceptable quality (for example, it is faulty), then you may have right to a remedy under the Australian Consumer Law. These rights are not impacted by the change of mind policy or limited by a defined timeframe. However, the Australian Consumer Law does recognise that the relevant time period may vary by product (or service) depending on the nature of the goods (or service).

Where you believe an item is not of acceptable quality, it may necessary for us to send your products to the manufacturer to be assessed within a reasonable period of time. If there is a major failure with the item, you may choose a refund, exchange or repair. If the failure is minor, we will repair the item (or, at our discretion, we may replace the item or refund you) within a reasonable time.

Where an item is damaged through abnormal use, RACE and ROAD is not required to provide a refund, exchange or repair.
Please keep your receipt as we will require satisfactory proof that you purchased the item from us before providing a remedy under Australian Consumer Law.


Exchange or Refund if required:

A customer can seek a refund under certain circumstances, commonly referred to as the right to repair, replacement or refund. Cases in which a refund would be in order include those where the goods:

  • The product has a fault the customer could not have known about at the time of purchase.
  • Does not work in the way the customer was lead to believe it would work.
  • Does not match the sample that they were shown.

We may offer to repair, exchange or provide a credit note/gift voucher for the goods subject to the agreement of the customer. If the goods are not repairable, you may be able to replace or refund the item. Some warranties are for replacement and not repair; for example, some electrical hand tool companies choose to have a replacement policy instead of repair. However, the customer does have a right to insist on a refund.

Therefore, we exchange or refund merchandise if the customer presents their receipt or Credit Card or EFTPOS voucher in any of the above circumstances.

You are legally entitled to offer to exchange the goods, or provide the customer with a gift voucher. However, in the above situations, if a customer is totally dissatisfied with the exchange option, a refund should be given in the form of payment that was initially tendered, as shown by their register receipt.
