Warranties and Insurance
At Stuart Mobility we pride ourselves on the quality of our products and we hope customers are happy with their purchases. All of our new products come with a manufacturer’s warranty but what does that mean? What about extending this or what about accidental damage?
All Repose chairs come with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty which covers the frame, mechanism and electrics. Fabric and foam are covered for 1 year.
Cosi- Chairs (Electric Mobility)
Our Cosi Chairs all come with a 12 month manufacturer’s guarantee. Electric Mobility Euro Limited (the ‘Company’) guarantees its products against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from the date of purchase by the original retail purchaser (the ‘Guarantee Period’). If a defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Guarantee Period, at its option, the Company may either (1) repair the defect at no charge, using new or replacement parts; (2) replace the defective part with a new part or a part that is either the same as, or functionally equivalent to, the original part; (3) replace the product with a new product which is the same as, or at least functionally equivalent to, the original product; or (4) refund the purchase price of the product

The Limited Extended Guarantee covers the cost of parts and materials only and does not include labour costs.
Services performed by the Electric Mobility Euro Limited in replacing the parts or materials will be subject to additional charges for labour and transportation. The Limited Extended Guarantee does not affect the consumer’s statutory consumer rights or the 12 Month Guarantee. The Limited Extended Guarantee runs concurrently with the 12 Month Guarantee.
