This section of the Returns Policy is applicable to purchases made online from www.elitefitness.co.nz (‘Elite Fitness Equipment ltd’) only.

For the Elite Fitness stores purchases returns policy, please see at the bottom of this page.

Change of Mind

Please choose carefully as we do not have to provide a refund if you have changed your mind about a particular purchase.

Consumers

Under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (‘CGA’), you have guaranteed legal rights for goods [and services] you buy.

These are called ‘consumer guarantees’, and include the following:

1. a guarantee that the goods are of acceptable quality, such that the goods are:

  • fit for all the purposes for which goods of that type are commonly supplied;
  • free from minor defects
  • Safe
  • durable; and
  • acceptable in appearance and finish;

2. a guarantee that the goods are fit for any particular purpose made known by you, or for which we represent that they are or will be fit;

3. a guarantee that the goods correspond with any description with which the goods are supplied; and

4. a guarantee that the goods correspond with any sample or demonstration model where the goods are sup-plied by reference to such sample or model.

If the goods [or services] we supply do not meet a consumer guarantee, we will meet our obligations under the CGA to provide a remedy.

These guarantees are in addition to any warranty offered by a manufacturer, and you may have rights against the manufacturer directly.

The CGA does not apply where the goods have been used in a manner, or to an extent which is inconsistent with the manner or extent of use that a reasonable consumer would expect to obtain from the goods; and the goods would have complied with the guarantee of acceptable quality if they had not been used in the manner or to that extent.

Businesses

If you are acquiring goods [or services] from Elite Fitness Online for business purposes as defined in sections 2 and 43 of the CGA, you agree that the consumer guarantees provided for in the CGA will not apply to the supply of those goods [or services].

Where you have an issue relating to your order, please immediately contact the us on 0800 243 834 or info@elitefitness.co.nz (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) Please have your order number with you.

This returns policy is not intended to exclude or limit any rights which you may have as a consumer under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, and may not necessarily describe all rights you may have.

Minor Failure

If the goods [or services] we supply do not comply with a consumer guarantee, but can be remedied within a reasonable time, we will either repair the goods or replace the goods with goods of identical type. If we cannot repair or replace the goods within a reasonable time, we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price.

Major Failure

A ‘major failure’ is where the failure in the goods cannot be repaired or cannot be repaired within a reasonable time, or where the failure constitutes a ‘failure of substantial character’ as set out by section 21 of the CGA.

If a failure amounts to a major failure, you are entitled to return the goods and choose to have a replacement of the returned goods or a refund. Alternatively, you may elect to retain the goods and obtain compensation for the reduction in value of the goods.

Where you choose a replacement, we will where available, provide goods of the same type and similar value to the returned goods.

Delivery Charges

Any shipping costs to return the original goods to Elite Fitness will be at the cost of Elite Fitness, where Elite Fitness considers the goods to have breached a consumer guarantee. If on examination of goods returned to Elite Fitness, the goods are found to not be in breach of any consumer guarantee, Elite Fitness may charge you a fee for examining the goods, and any cost to return the goods to you.

Please note that goods must be returned within a reasonable period and you may be asked to demonstrate that you have pur-chased the goods from Elite Fitness Online and that the problem with the goods was not your fault.

Refunds

Refunds will be issued at the discretion of Elite Fitness.

Refunds will normally be processed within seven (7) days.
