No, we do not accept products back to our store for warranty repairs/work. We do not repair or diagnose any problems with merchandise. Manufacturers want you to send the products to them directly. Find out what brand/company your product is and contact them directly to ask about their procedures for returning warranty related items.
Generally speaking, manufacturers will require proof of purchase that is dated to make sure your product is within it's warranty period. They will also usually require you to send the product needing warranty work/repair to them as well. These are the usual requirements, but once again, each manufacturer is different and may have different requirements to satisfy their warranty guidelines. There is usually a warranty card that comes with the product that has contact information for the manufacturer. If you are unable to locate this warranty card, look up the manufacturer/company and contact them directly to find out information regarding warranty service.
