Risk and title in the Goods passes to you upon delivery of the Goods to the Delivery Address or selected collection point.
- RETURNS, CREDITS, AND REFUNDS
We want you to be totally satisfied with all Goods purchased online from Metro Batteries, so please choose carefully as refunds are not provided where you have simply changed your mind, made a wrong selection or simply found the goods cheaper elsewhere. We recommend you carefully preview any Orders before adding them to your shopping cart and proceeding with your Order.
Making a claim: If you wish to make a claim for a replacement product, refund or credit in respect of Goods purchased online because:
- you believe that an item, which was ordered by you and which was in stock, has not been provided; or
- you are not satisfied with the quality of the Goods you have purchased,
you must call Metro Batteries Customer Care Centre on 1300 627 742 in Australia and 0800 465 537 in New Zealand. A Metro Batteries Customer Care Centre representative will assess your claim for a replacement product, credit or refund of the purchase price. Metro Batteries reserves the right to inspect the Goods before making the assessment. This is in addition to and does not limit or replace your rights under any applicable consumer or other laws.
GOODS RETURNED FOR REPAIR OR DAMAGED IN TRANSIT
If any Goods arrive damaged, please contact the Metro Batteries Customer Care Centre on 1300 627 742 in Australia and 0800 465 537 in New Zealand and report the issue as soon as possible. Metro Batteries will arrange for a replacement of the Goods or refund the price to you. This is in addition to and does not limit or replace your rights under any applicable consumer or other laws.
Damaged Goods must be reported to Metro Batteries within 14 days of receipt and returned to Metro Batteries in the condition received by you with all original packaging, accessories and/or manuals within a further 14 days. The Goods will be inspected and assessed and/or repaired within a reasonable time by Metro Batteries. You may be provided with an indicative repair time, which time may vary due to reasons beyond ours or the repairer’s reasonable control, such as part availability or incorrect fault description.
You must bear any expense you may incur in making a claim under this section. This does not affect your rights under the Australian Consumer Law. You may also be required to pay labour, assessment and/or freight fees connected with the repair, replacement and return of defective Goods to you, such as where Goods are assessed to have been damaged by misuse or accident, or where your rights under the Australian Consumer Law (or equivalent legislation) or any manufacturer’s warranty do not apply. We may provide you with an indicative fee for such labour, assessment or freight costs, which fee may vary due to reasons beyond our control.
If any Goods that you return are used to assist in the storage of data, such as radio PIN codes or engine management data, the replacement or repair of the Goods may result in loss of the data. We will not be responsible for any data loss in these circumstances.
If any Goods cannot be easily returned to Metro Batteries, a Metro Batteries store or authorised reseller due to their size, the fault or because they have been affixed or installed in your premises or vehicle, please contact our Metro Customer Care Centre on 1300 627 742 in Australia and 0800 465 537 in New Zealand and we will arrange an inspection to assess the Goods. You may be required to pay labour, assessment and/or freight fees in respect of this inspection.
Refunds will be made by Metro Batteries via the method of payment you used to make your online purchase. Refunds will normally be processed within seven (7) working days. For Goods purchased from the Metro Batteries Website, all refunds will be issued by the Metro Batteries Customer Care Centre and cannot be made by any service provider, 3rd party freight provider, authorized reseller or associated agent or contractor of Metro Batteries.
GUARANTEES UNDER AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW
Our Goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage (including but not limited to expenses you may incur in making a claim under the guarantees). You are also entitled to have the Goods repaired and replaced if the Goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
- PRICE OF GOODS AND PAYMENT
Purchase price: The purchase price of the Goods shown on the online Product List at the time you make your Order is the price which is applicable for your Order and will be shown on the Order confirmation, except:
- if a Good is out of stock;
- if you have given instructions that you will accept a substitute Good, in which case the substitute Good will be charged at the lower of the original or the substitute price at the time the substitute Good is processed and scanned for your Order;
- if you modify your Order, in which case the prices applicable on all Goods will update to the then current prices in the Product List; or
- if during authorized fitment of the Goods, the specification of a product required varies significantly from that originally ordered.
The purchase prices on the Product List will not necessarily correspond to the prices in your local Metro Batteries store or authorised reseller stores.
Delivery Fee: You must pay the Delivery Fee in respect of each Order which is determined by the Delivery Address and product type. You will be advised of the Delivery Fee prior to making your Order.
Additional Fees: If charged by Metro Batteries in accordance with clause 4 of these Conditions, you must pay any Late Cancellation Fees following cancellation of an Order or Additional Fees upon completion of the delivery.
Catalogue specials: Not all Metro Batteries catalogue specials are available at the Metro Batteries Websites. If a catalogue is published for specific stores or authorized resellers, the specials in that catalogue are not available at the Metro Batteries Websites. Other Metro Batteries promotional lines may be available at the Metro Batteries Websites from time to time.
Tax invoice: Upon delivery or collection of the Goods, Metro Batteries will provide you with a tax invoice specifying the total price for the Goods, including credits/debits applied, the Delivery Fee and any Additional Fees.
Method of payment: At the time you place an Order, you will be required to make an online payment by credit or debit card (MasterCard®, Visa), unless otherwise agreed with Metro Batteries.
In order to receive the Goods you have ordered, payment must be received by the selected payment method in full prior to delivery. Metro Batteries will process your payment using your credit/debit card as we prepare the Order for delivery, which in most cases will be the day of delivery but may be the day prior to delivery. If your credit card is declined by your financial institution, Metro Batteries will not be able to guarantee delivery on the date or in the delivery window you selected and may contact you to make alternative delivery and payment arrangements. If you are not at the Delivery Address or organise a re-delivery, the payment will be processed on the original date of the Order. If the Order is cancelled or refunded, the credit will be processed within 7 working days or sooner. Metro Batteries may decline to accept payment from you by debit or credit card for any reason, and is not required to give reasons. If Metro Batteries declines to accept payment from you by debit or credit card, your Order will not be processed and you will not be contacted. If you agree to make payment by another method that is acceptable to Metro Batteries, Metro Batteries may process the Order or any further Orders you may make.
In cases where Additional Fees may be payable, payment can be accepted by either mobile EFTPOS* (not available in all locations) or credit card (MasterCard®, Visa) at the time of delivery (or upon collection). Where a cancelled Order attracts a Late Cancellation Fee, Metro Batteries may deduct payment of the fee from any credit balance it holds on your behalf.
- OUT OF STOCKS AND SUBSTITUTION
Metro Batteries will not provide rain checks in respect of Goods ordered by you. Before finalising your Order, you will be invited by Metro Batteries to select a product substitution in respect of Goods which are out of stock. Substitute items are charged at the lower of the original or the substitute price.
- PACKAGING AND LABELLING OF GOODS
Metro Batteries will use reasonable endeavours to include up-to-date pictures of the Goods in the Product List. At times, the picture of the Goods on the Product List may differ from the Goods actually supplied to you.
