Standard replacement

For customers that agree to return defective product to Stratium first, a Standard Replacement option is available.

Stratium must first issue an RMA number prior to the return of the defective product. This RMA number will need to be referenced on the outside of the return shipment.

Upon receipt of the defective product, Stratium will, at its discretion, either repair or replace the product and ship it out in the most expeditious manner possible. Subject to availability, the replacement product will be shipped on the business day following receipt of the defective product.

In the event the product returned to Stratium has been discontinued (i.e the product is no longer being manufactured by Stratium but is still under warranty), Stratium will, at its discretion, either repair or replace with a re-certified product.

Cross shipment

In the event that replacement product is needed immediately, a Cross Shipment option is available.

Requesting this option implies that the customer has the defective part and will ship them back to Stratium within 10 calendar days of receipt of the replacement product.

The customer will be asked to secure the return by providing a purchase order or credit card. If a credit card is used there will be a 10-day hold or charge placed on the card equal to the list price of the item being shipped. In the event the product is unable to be returned on or before the due date, the credit card will be charged for the non-returned product. Once the defective product is returned, a credit or refund will be issued within 3 business days of product being returned. Subject to availability, Stratium will ship product on the same day the RMA is generated.

Once you have obtained an RMA number

After obtaining an RMA number from Stratium, you must send the product - freight prepaid - to Stratium Limited. The Stratium RMA number must be prominently displayed on the outside of your package. If you send your product to Stratium without the RMA number prominently displayed on the outside of the package, it will be returned to you unopened. 

Please use a shipping company that can demonstrate proof of delivery. Stratium does not accept responsibility for any lost shipments unless proof of delivery to Stratium is provided.

Please note:

The Product shipped to Stratium must be properly packaged in the original packaging to prevent loss or damage in transit.

Shipping your RMA to Stratium using regular mailing envelopes is not acceptable, as they do not protect the product from damage during shipping.
