Standard conditions for return

  • Part is fault-free, no visual damage, nothing missing, fully functional
  • Part is suitable for reselling
  • Part price > 50 € per returned part # (makes no sense to return one part/ 5€, but it may be OK to return 10 of these on the same shipment)
  • Part is complete, not a part of a kit etc.
  • Part is not customized, e.g. painted in a special color. A special agreement may be possible depending on the case. HMF reserves the right at any time to decline. 
  • Part has never been mounted on a crane
  • Part has never been used
  • Hydraulic pipes, hoses, rubber parts, seal kits are not eligible for returns
  • HMF After Sales shall be informed in writing with required details before returning anything
  • Upon written acceptance from HMF After Sales, the returns may be sent
  • Returned goods must under no circumstances be mixed with warranty parts. This causes excessive extra work in our warehouse. Should this happen, HMF Group will invoice an amount representing the shipping costs of return parts plus a handling fee of 200 €
  • Returned goods that do not pass inspection/ do not appear as new from factory, will be subject to further reductions depending on the condition (example: slewing cylinder with scratches was credited by 50% instead of 80%). If distributor does not accept the rate, HMF Group offers to send the part back for a fee of 35€ (½ hour handling), distributor pays freight.

HMF reserves the right at any time to reject goods.

 

Packing and shipment

  • Each lot (pallet, box, etc.) must be marked with the text: “RETURNED GOODS”
  • Ensure that the parts are easily identifiable
    • Include copy of invoice or packing slip/ delivery note and the e-mail confirming that agreement has been made to return.
    • If sending many parts from various deliveries, use the Excel template and include a copy after the sheet has been formally approved
  • Returned goods must all be marked individually with part number
  • Returned goods must under no circumstances be mixed with warranty parts (fee involved)
  • Returned goods must be carefully packaged to avoid damage, preferably use same packing as part was delivered in.

Crediting

Received parts are credited within 5 working days from arriving at HMF Group, provided they pass inspection.
