How do I return items?
If you want to return an item, you first need to ask Realdolmen to authorize the return. This is done by filling out an RMA form (Return Manufacturer Authorization). You can download this form here.
Submit the returns form by email no later than 24 hours in case of defect and damage, and no later than five working days after delivery in case of non-conformity of products, and this to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a CC to your sales contact at Realdolmen. It’s important to make sure that you fill out the mandatory fields completely and correctly. This information helps us provide you with the best possible service.
Once we receive your RMA form, we will review it within three working days. If your return request is accepted, you will receive an email with your assigned RMA registration number and, if relevant, the likely costs of the return. Additionally, we will contact you to arrange for the return or collection of the items.
Once we have received your returned goods, we will create your credit note. The value of this credit note will depend on a number of factors:
- The packaging must be unopened and in perfect condition. Please do not write on the original packaging: use an additional outer packaging if needed.
- If the error is Realdolmen's responsibility, you will not be charged for shipping and handling.
- If the error was your own responsibility, we will be forced to charge a fee. You will be notified of this fee when we approve your RMA form.
If your return request has been refused for any reason, you will be notified, along with an explanation of the refusal. We are not able to accept items you simply return to us, without requesting an RMA form.
What if the delivered item was damaged?
In that case there are two possibilities:
- You can see visible damagewhen your item is delivered:
- If the damage makes it unacceptable to you, you may refuse to accept the delivery. The transporter will return the damaged goods free of charge. Please report your rejection of the delivery to email@example.com.
- You accept the order anyway, and write a note of the damage when signing the delivery note. It is important in that case that you check whether the items work correctly immediately after delivery. If unpacking reveals that it is not just the packaging, but that the items that are also damaged, please report this within 24 hours of receipt, to firstname.lastname@example.org. That way, we are aware of the situation and can notify the transport company ourselves. We will then arrange for collection of the defective goods and a new delivery.
- You discover non-visible damageon delivery of your order:
- The item doesn't function and is clearly "defective on arrival" (DOA). In this case, you must report this to the Realdolmen Service Line (RDLS). You can do this by phone (+32 2 801 50 50), fax (+32 78 150 130) or email (email@example.com). For more information, see “How do I send in a defective item for repair?” and “Do I have a warranty on items which have been sent in for repair?”
- The items are damaged inside the box. It is important in that case that you check whether the items work correctly immediately after delivery. If unpacking reveals that it is not just the packaging, but that the items that are also defective, please report this within 24 hours of receipt, to firstname.lastname@example.org. That way, we are aware of the situation and can notify the transport company ourselves. We will then arrange for collection of the defective goods and a new delivery.
Important notice: to avoid discussion, please take photographs of items that are damaged or incorrect deliveries.
What if the delivery does not match my order?
If items are missing, please report this immediately to email@example.com. We will deliver the missing items to you as soon as possible.
If the wrong items were delivered, please report this immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will deliver the correct items to you as soon as possible. We will also contact you to arrange transport to collect the incorrect items.
If too many items were delivered, please report this immediately to email@example.com as well. We will also contact you to arrange transport to collect the excess items.
Important notice: to avoid discussion, please take photographs of items that are damaged or incorrect deliveries.
How do I send in a defective item or a DOA for repair?
Always report technical questions or issues to the Realdolmen Service Line (RDSL) using one of the following options:
We are available between 8 am and 6 pm, from Monday to Friday, except for Belgian public holidays.
Please have the following information to hand whenever you contact RDSL:
- The serial number of the defective item;
- The number of the order and/or invoice that includes the item.
Each notification will be logged as an incident with a unique registration number. You will be sent this number by email. To avoid errors, the service line will compare the data for the incident with the details in the back office systems, such as the customer address, serial number and warranty terms.
Do I have a warranty on items which have been sent in for repair?
When you send an item to the Realdolmen Service Line (RDSL) for repair, there are three possibilities:
- You request repair immediately on commissioning the item:
When an item is delivered, you are entitled to a period of five calendar days in which to verify that the item functions correctly.
If it is clear immediately that the item does not work correctly, and was "defective on arrival" (DOA), you must notify the Realdolmen Service Line (RDSL) of this by phone (+32 78 150 140), fax (+32 78 150 130) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). See also: “How do I send in a defective item for repair?”
If the item was "defective on arrival" (DOA) there are two possibilities:
- You can use the standard warranty to have the product repaired (preferred option).
- You can ask for the defective item to be replaced by a new one. Realdolmen will arrange for collection of the defective item.
The manufacturer's warranty provisions and repair conditions also usually apply to these DOAs. If there is a "carry-in" warranty on the defective materials, transport costs will be charged to the customer.
- You request repair during the warranty period:
If it becomes clear that the item is defective after commissioning, you must immediately contact the Realdolmen Service Line (RDSL). The service line will log the repair by registering an incident. They will contact you in order to discuss the issue and decide how to proceed with the repair. If the repair falls within the item's warranty terms and period, no repair costs will be charged.
- Hardware: The warranty period and conditions for hardware products depend on the manufacturer's specifications. The hardware warranty covers only the repair of electronic defects. Tip: Larger manufacturers often offer service packages that extend their standard warranty. You can order these at the same time as the items in Rstore, under Options in the Item Description.
- Software: we can only provide a warranty for software products if and insofar as the supplier guarantees his software. This warranty is usually restricted to the media on which the software is supplied.
- You request repair outside of the warranty period:
You can also request repairs from the Realdolmen Service Line (RDSL) that do not fall within the warranty period or terms. In that case, you will first receive an estimate of the costs for your approval.
