Warranty

Here at USB international we believe in providing our customers with strong, durable and hard-wearing luggage that doesn’t compromise on quality.

Following this principle, we offer all our luggage with warranties to provide our customers with peace of mind.

Please see below the warranties for each style:

  • AEROLITE HARD SHELL 5 YEARS
  • 5 CITIES HARD SHELL 5 YEARS
  • AEROLITE SOFT SIDE 10 YEARS
  • 5 CITIES SOFT SIDE 5 YEARS
  • HOPPA – 3 YEARS

Even if your product hasn’t been registered we are able to guarantee your warranty; with the following relevant information:

  1. Proof of purchase
  2. Hangtag warranty certificate
  3. Image of damaged item

With this information we are able to verify when you purchased our product and the duration of its warranty. This also enables us to provide you with either the same product or a similar alternative. We are happy to replace your item if it is covered under our warranty and will send you a replacement (shipment charge not included).

How to claim under the warranty?

If your claim is covered under our warranty you must ensure you provide us with all the relevant information to provide with your claim. We advise that you return to the place of purchase; they will be able to advise you to their own returns and refund policies. If this option is not available or you are advised to contact us on contact@usbinternational.com . You must provide us with proof of your purchase first, warranty certificate and photographic evidence of the damage and a brief description. If damage was cause by third party or airline baggage handling this is not covered under our warranty and should be taken up with the airline or carrier before you depart the airport. Once we have this information we can process your claim.

 

Airline Damage or Third-Party damage

Our warranty does not cover airline damage or third party. We suggest that if any damage is found to take it directly to the airline’s handling counter at the airport and complete a property irregularity report (PIR). The airline will contact you to discuss the extent of the damage and its recourse. It is not a legal requirement to have a PIR however, it does assist with speeding up the claims process. Our warranty does not affect your statutory rights. We advise to check with the appropriate airline for further information.

 

What is covered under warranty?

Our luggage and suitcases are built and designed to be hardwearing and durable, however moderate wear and tear is to be expected. Any warranty placed on our products is valid against defects in material and workmanship. It does not provide cover for airplane baggage handling or third-party damage and should be taken up directly with the airline. If you are unsure you can contact us on contact@usbinternational.com.

I no longer have the Warranty hangtag what can I do?

The warranty certificate hangtag would be found on the handle of the suitcase or luggage when purchased. We require the warranty certificate for any claims as it provides us with the information we need to provide you with the correct replacement item. If you do not have the warranty certificate we cannot validate your claim. If you do not have this certificate we will require you to provide us with the style no and PO no which can be found inside the case on a white label. We would also require the dimensions of your luggage (directions of how to measure below)

Can I have a refund?

Can it be repaired?

I don’t have proof of purchase

Unfortunately, without proof of purchase we are not able to process any warranty’s. We require proof of purchase to provide us with a start date of warranty.
