2. Faulty scales can be returned directly back to us within the Warranty period. In the first instance contact dave@jameswshenton.co.uk. If items need to be returned for repair/service they can be posted to: FTAO David Loveland, James W Shenton Ltd, Tinsley Street, Great Bridge DY4 7LQ.  The unit will be repaired here or sent back to KERN for their technicians to look at.

5, Refunds will not include any verification or certification work that was specifically related to your order as this type of work is non resalable.  


6. Scales that are returned with any blemishes or missing components will be charged accordingly and any refurbishment costs will be deducted from the amount to be refunded. KERN will decide what the refurbishment cost is going to be once their engineers have checked the scale so it is imperitive you return the scale unused and preferably unopened.
