Warranty & Returns

 

Product sourced from Hoof Boots Australia is backed by the manufacturers' guarantees and Australian Consumer law.  

Note: Only product purchased through Hoof Boots Australia may be returned to us for warranty issues.  

Australian customers note your consumers rights under the warranty sit alongside the consumer guarantees as provided by Australian Consumer Law. 

Return Policy for Boots sourced from Hoof Boots Australia:

Hoof Boots Aus logo

Any boots & accessories returned for assessment must be clean and free of manure, urine & dirt. To assess them we need to handle them. The boots are washable please clean them prior to posting them to us.  If they are in a smelly & dirty state a cleaning fee of $20 will be charged prior to examination.  

Exchanges due to sizing errors:    Exchanges must be returned within 30 days of purchase.

Sizing issues are not a boot fault.  We offer best advice based on the sizing charts and the manufacturer's advice but we are not physically there to measure your horse so the choice is ultimately up to the purchaser.

We are happy to exchange for sizing issues but all postage costs for the return of new product & resending another boot will be borne by the purchaser.

Boots returned for sizing exchanges must be in an "unused" condition. It is up to the customer to keep the boots clean and the soles unmarked when fitting them if they feel they may need to exchange them later. 

If you are returning a boot due to a manufacturing defect, (within the 90  day warranty period) and after inspection the company deems the product faulty, then a replacement will be sent to you postage free. 

Returns for credit only (refund of purchase price only):  Products must be in new, unused condition, free of dirt and wear marks and returned with all packaging materials etc. Bank Fees will apply for refunding to credit cards.

 EasyCare, Inc. Warranty and Product Return Policy

Warranty Easycare 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee - We back all of our products with a money-back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with this product for any reason, EasyCare will gladly refund your purchase price (excluding shipping and handling) within 30 days of purchase. To qualify all products must be returned to place of purchase and have a dated receipt. Offer not valid for EasyCare bargain bin, factory seconds or custom boot purchases

(End User Instructions)

Easycare offers a 90 day repair or replacement warranty - for all hoof boots (purchased as new) manufactured under the EasyCare label. Please register your product at http://www.easycareinc.com/warranty_reg.aspx and keep your original dated receipt(s) as proof of purchase during the warranty period.

If a boot fails during warranty, it is generally a minor hardware issue. Please bear in mind that most components of EasyCare hoof boots are either replaceable or repairable. This includes wire laces, cables, buckles, gears, rollers, screws and straps. Most repairs can be easily accomplished with simple household tools. Depending on the circumstances, EasyCare will send you repair parts, or ask that you return the boots to us for evaluation. Videos of many repairs are available on our website at www.easycareinc.com.

While this warranty is very broad in nature, it does not cover wear (including sole breakthrough when worn over horseshoes), misuse, abuse, factory seconds, bargain bin items, or boots purchased as used. Products returned for evaluation must be clean, dry and free of debris, dirt, sand and manure. Damage inflicted by omnivorous horses, rodents or other unusual abuse is not covered. Altering boots will void the warranty.

Therapy boots (EasySoakers and RX boots) are meant to be used over bare hooves. Wearing a therapy boot over shoes will void the warranty but can be done at your discretion.

Returns must be authorized before sending and must be returned with an RMA number. Contact EasyCare directly for all warranty issues at 1-800-447-8836 to receive an RMA number.

Specifically:

  1. Returns for credit only (refund of purchase price only): Products must be in new, unused condition, free of dirt and wear marks. It is your responsibility to evaluate the fit of your new product in a manner where you may return it in new condition if you have doubts about the fit. Be certain that you know the return policy of product purchased from dealers other than direct from EasyCare (the manufacturer). EasyCare will not give credit for product purchased elsewhere. Return to point of purchase in that circumstance. Also, all brochures, inserts and/or free gifts must accompany returned items.
  2. Exchanges of new product (size or color issue): EasyCare will only exchange NEW items with same product style and model for same product when requested with NEW items only. You may exchange for a different size or color exchange only, no exceptions. If you wish to have a different style of hoof boot, etc., you must return new item for refund (original point of purchase) and then purchase new choice.
  3. Warranty failure (used product that is within 90 days of purchase): Contact us at 800-447-8836 800-447-8836. EasyCare will either provide repair parts directly to you, or repair/replace after our evaluation. Items must be returned to EasyCare at the consumers cost with original receipt. EasyCare will return the items via ground service (UPS or FEDX) free of charge. Requests for faster shipping service will be at the expense of the consumer.
  4. Not under warranty (over 90 days or no proof of purchase): Repair parts may be purchased from your local dealer or EasyCare, or product may be returned for evaluation and possible repair (parts, labor and freight charges will apply).
  5. Call for an RMA number (under warranty or not): Returns must be authorized before sending and must be returned with an RMA number clearly written on outside of packaging. Contact us at 800-447-8836 800-447-8836 to receive an RMA number. Returns will be refused without an RMA number on outside of package.
  6. Freight charges (outside warranty period and for international customers): Freight charges to and from EasyCare for repairs, exchanges and items outside the warranty period and for international customers will be the purchaser's responsibility.

EasyCare staff is always willing to discuss any specific issues you may have regarding the performance of your EasyCare or Old Mac's products.
