Return & Warranty
We want you to love our products as much as we do. All items we ship have successfully passed our rigorous Quality Control inspections. Our warranties ensure you have a fantastic surveying experience while giving you total peace of mind. Most items sold by Karavan.cn are covered by the following comprehensive product warranties. If, in an unlikely situation you are not covered, please check our Warranty Exemptions and Notes below.
7 Day Dead on Arrival (DOA) Guarantee
If your item arrives damaged or is not working, please follow the warranty process and contact our Customer Support Service for RMA authorization within 7 days of the order being received. After returning the product to the address provided by our service team, we can send you a new item free of charge (we will reimburse you the return shipping cost), or you can choose to receive a full refund. Enjoy total peace of mind: every single purchase is 100% risk-free each time you shop at Karavan.
Customers must first send evidence (e.g. your order number, a clear photo or video of the damaged or defective product and the shipping packaging) before we can consider issuing RMA authorization. Please use good lighting, and a close to medium distance, so we can identify and verify the issue(s). Attachment size must be under 10MB for the Customer Support Service, for larger sized evidences, please directly send the attachments to: email@example.com.
After we receive the returned product and confirmed the product is faulty, the return shipping cost will be refunded based on a valid return receipt. For example if the return shipping fee is 30 USD, we will refund the same amount of 30 USD to the customer. If our technical team determines the item is not a DOA , Karavan.cn will not compensate the return shipping fee. Refund requests for a return shipping fee without a valid RMA return receipt slip will not be accepted.
Product returns must be via one of Karavan.cn's approved shipping methods; our Customer Support Service can provide you with further details.
What is a RMA authorization?
RMA: Return Merchandise Authorization. It is an authorization we issue to our customers to proceed their after-sales service procedures. It will be released to customers in a PDF format via email and customers should print it out and send it back together with the faulty products to Karavan.cn.
