While all our products have been designed to withstand the ins and outs of your every day, we also provide you with a 24 month Warranty to cover against faults in materials and workmanship when your products are used under normal conditions, according to our user manuals and technical specifications.
Australian Consumer Law
Our lightweight walkers come with a guarantee that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or may be entitled to a refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonable foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. Forward Thinker Lifestyle is entitled to choose between providing you with a repair, replacement or refund. To obtain compensation, you would need to provide documentary evidence of the loss or damage suffered and documentary evidence that such loss or damage was a reasonable foreseeable consequence of a failure by Forward Thinker Lifestyle to comply with the consumer guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law.
At our opinion
Ø Goods repaired may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired
Ø Refurbished parts may be used to repair goods

How To Make A Warranty Claim
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of your warranty claim. To validate your warranty claim we will require you to include in your email:
- a description of the warranty defect and photographs;
- your contact details;
- attached invoice with order number; and
- product batch number (the serial number is printed on a sticker that is located at the bottom of the walker frame).
The more detailed you are with your description of the defect, the more quickly we will be able to repair your product. Sometimes we will be able to send you the spare parts to assemble yourself, rather than sending the whole product in for repair – getting you back mobile quicker
We will respond to your warranty claim within 7 business days and depending on the nature of the warranty claim, arrange collection of the product from your nominated address. Collection will take place on a business day (i.e. not a public holiday or weekend within your state or territory) between 8am and 5.30pm. Please take care to repack the product in secure and stable packaging to avoid any damage occurring in the returns transit. We do not take responsibility for any damage that occurs in transit to and from our walker repairer.
Once our walker repairer has received the product they will inspect and confirm the reported defect. We will then contact you with further information surrounding the repair such as the estimated turn-around time.
