Terms and Conditions:

Warranty and Disclaimer

All products sold by Carbonetics may not be legal for street use. It is the buyer's responsibility to comply with their local, state and national authorities; in regards to the legality of their vehicle.

Carbonetics is not responsible for the installation and modification of the product or the vehicle. It is the buyer's responsibility and understanding to take best practices and engage with a professional installer to achieve best possible fitment and results. Carbonetics is not liable for any cost incurred during the preparation, installation and modifications process needed for any products, regardless of whether it is deemed a defective product. All defective products should be made aware to Carbonetics immediately and will be swapped out to an alternative non-defective product (customer accepts that there may be a waiting time involved if Carbonetics does not have this product in stock).

 

Installation

Carbonetics insists on professional installation for all products to guarantee a most optimal result. The customer understands that all products may require alterations in order for correct fitment such as Prepping, Trimming, Cutting, Sanding, Additions and any Fiberglass/Carbon Work that is needed as part of installation. Carbonetics does not guarantee OEM fitment for any parts supplied unless stated otherwise.

All fibreglass and portion carbon products will require some form of Prepping, Trimming, Cutting, Sanding, Additions and Painting work before installation on the car.

Please note: Every individual product and vehicles is different with many factors to take into consideration such as; age, condition, warping, previous accidents/repairs, structural deviations, environmental damage, pre-existing damage, rust etc.

Therefore, adjustments to Carbonetics products and your vehicle will have to be made to cater for this. Certain products will require painting in order to match the aesthetic of the buyer's vehicle (portion carbon, carbon or fibreglass). The products will not fit like an OEM factory supplied part as we supply aftermarket parts that are handmade.

 

Defective Products

As previously mentioned, all Carbonetics products need to be professionally installed by an Automotive Bodyshop to guarantee an optimal result.

As all items are handmade, no two items will be identical. There will be inevitable imperfections, blemishes and will not fit like an OEM part/or have OEM fitment. This is part of the hand-crafted process. Not fitting like OEM/ not having OEM fitment is NOT considered to be defective.

If there are any issues with any of Carbonetics products and you believe that it is not fit for use or may need an extensive amount of work may be needed to fit, Carbonetics should be notified immediately before any work on the product commences. Photographic and video evidence of potential defects must be documented and sent to Carbonetics for review and assessment.

Carbonetics should be notified immediately if during the installation process any serious product or fitment issues arise (drastic modification or time are needed to make the product fit).

Carbonetics will not consider a product defective after extensive work has begun on the product. Carbonetics will not consider any product defective unless verified by a qualified and accredited automotive Bodyshop/installer. Photographic and video evidence of potential defects must be documented and sent to Carbonetics for review and assessment prior to any return’s claims being approved or alternatives being sent out.

If it is not repaired in a reasonable time you can choose a refund or replacement. Please keep your proof of purchase—e.g. your receipt.

 

Unforeseen Circumstances and Unique Situations
The aftermarket parts industry is unique due to the products on offer and their intended purpose. Products are often large, but light weight. Production requires precision and accuracy in order to replace and/or adhere to the original shape in an acceptable and high quality manner. With such a large catalog of products for all vehicle models and styles/types, there may be abnormalities in regards to scheduling for production completion.

Likewise, there will be situations where the nature of the product you have purchased will require specific instructions and equipment for shipping. This also includes circumstances that are out of our control, such as extreme weather, contractor logistical issues, industrial disputes or customs. At Carbonetics we operate using the most efficient method of delivery to and from our warehouse. Any delays or issues in this area will be communicated with you as necessary.

 

Payment Policy

Carbonetics accepts payment in the following methods:

  • Visa/Mastercard
  • ZipPay
  • AfterPay
