9. WARRANTY AND GUARANTEE
All Ampler bikes have a 2-year limited warranty period, starting from the shipping date, on all original components (frame, fork, handlebar, power panel), electronics (motor, controller) and battery. The battery is considered defect if, within the 2-year period, the remaining capacity of the battery becomes less than 70% of the original capacity.
All the bicycle components are guaranteed against manufacturing defects (materials and workmanship). During this time, Ampler Bikes is liable for replacing or repairing the components subject to the warranty. The warranty is valid in EU member countries, Norway and Switzerland.
Delivery damages should be noted and signed on the delivery act. In case of delivery damages, Ampler Bikes should be informed immediately after the arrival of the package (maximum within one-week time). Proof of purchase is necessary. Ampler Bikes requires a record of the damages on a photo or a best possible alternative proof.
If any damages occur due the fault of materials or workmanship during the 2-year guarantee period, Ampler Bikes should be informed immediately. Ampler Bikes is the main contact for all defects and will handle the processing of the damages. Customers are kindly asked for most possible detailed description about the issue and photo and/or video materials if possible.
The repair or the replacement is handled in the most efficient way, evaluated by Ampler Bikes, by either covering the repair costs incurred a professional bicycle workshop of the customer’s choice or by transporting the bike to Ampler Bikes’ workshop in Tallinn or Berlin. The defect component will be replaced with another original component or with another equivalent component.
The warranty will be declined in areas as normal wear, tear, neglect, abuse, misuse or crash damages. Warranty does not cover follow-up maintenance or later integration of extras. Warranty does not apply in cases of modifications, improper assembly or incorrect maintenance. Where the claim is deemed not to be warrantable, we will look to offer a reduced cost replacement.
The Ampler bike comes with the wear and tear parts, which are carefully selected from other manufacturers and we do not cover the warranty on normal wear:
