The product does not meet the specifications listed by iBOOD
You can report an incorrect delivery within 7 days through My iBOOD. After logging in choose "returns and warranty"+ "wrong delivery" and follow the on-screen instructions.
After Customer Service has received your report they will attempt to resolve the problem as soon as possible. If the report is made after 7 days this process becomes very difficult, so it is imperative the report is made immediately upon detection of a problem.
What should I do if my package has become damaged during transport?
It could happen that, in spite of best efforts, your package may be damaged during transport. This applies only to damage visible on the packaging of the product. At the time of delivery when you notice damage on the packaging immediately report this to the courier, he will make a note of the incident for us to follow up on. Afterwards always report the damage through My iBOOD. After logging in navigate to "returns and warranty" + "transport damage" and follow the on-screen instructions. This needs to be done within 7 working days.
Customer service will handle your report and begin an investigation with the courier. The outcome of said investigation will determine how the incident is handled. The courier has 4 to 6 weeks to complete their own investigation. Unfortunately this is out of our hands and we appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.
Please note: If the packaging is not damaged but the product itself is you must report a Dead On Arrival (DOA) and NOT transport damage.
What should I do if my product is defective, damaged or incomplete upon arrival (DOA)?
It is important to inspect your order for damages or any missing components within 7 days of delivery. If any abnormalities, defects or damage are found report this within 7 days of delivery through My iBOOD. After logging in navigate to "returns and warranty" + "dead on arrival" and follow the on-screen instructions. After 7 working days we can no longer process any dead on arrival reports. The report is then filed under defective goods. This means different terms apply to your claim and therefore a late report may be rejected.
Please note: If a complaint is noted upon delivery and the packaging is visibly damaged when handed to you please refer to "transport damage" instead of "dead on arrival".
After the dead on arrival (DOA) report you will receive an E-mail containing instructions for returning the product. This means you may have to directly contact the manufacturer and/or send the product in for repairs by our repair center.
It is very important you send your report in on time and follow the given instructions exactly for us to process your complaint correctly. The status of your report can be followed in the My iBOOD section of the website. Select "my orders" and "warranty" to check on the status of your claim.
What should I do if my product becomes defective within the warranty period?
All products sold by iBOOD are top name brands and come with a warranty. If the product becomes defective within the indicated warranty period you can file a report through the My iBOOD section of the website. After logging in navigate to "returns and warranty" + "defective" and follow the on-screen instructions. After your report is filed you will receive an E-mail containing further instructions on returning your product. This means you may have to contact the manufacturer directly or send your product in for repairs.
It is imperative you follow the reporting and return instructions carefully to avoid any delays and potential complications. The status of your claim can be followed through My iBOOD. After logging in navigate to "My orders" and to "Warranty" to review the status of your report.

Why are there different procedures for reporting a "dead on arrival" or "defective product"?
In case of a "dead on arrival" or "defective" we may put you in direct contact with the manufacturer of the product to resolve the complaint. This depends entirely on the instructions we have received from the manufacturer regarding the individual product. This way the complaint can be resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible, eliminating potentially unnecessary middlemen in the process.
In case direct handling by the manufacturer or importer is not an option the repairs department will handle the complaint. The repairs department is accredited and certified to diagnose and handle any necessary repairs. If necessary the repairs department may forward your product for further repairs or completion of repairs by a third party. Any inquiries regarding repairs are handled by Customer Service. Using the contact form on our website you can reach Customer Service. They will further help you resolve your complaint/report.
Should you not be able to resolve something directly with the importer/manufacturer you may contact Customer Service using the contact form on the website. They will then further assist you in resolving your complaint.
