Warranty / Terms of Sale

How to Make a Warranty Claim:

Metro LED Lighting assists our clients by obtaining a Return Material Authorization (RMA) from the applicable Manufacturer, for fixtures that are being requested to have a warranty review.

To request an RMA, the customer shall provide:

  1. Date of Purchase, and the Original PO or order information for the item.
  2. The specific line item on the Original PO that is being requested for service under the Manufacturer’s Warranty.
  3. Provide the number of items that are being request for warranty review, and the part numbers if available.

For items that have been discontinued or are no longer available, Metro LED Lighting will seek to find a repair facility to service the item. It is at the sole discretion of buyer whether to use this service, and the buyer is responsible for all costs associated with these repairs. Metro LED Lighting provides this as a courtesy service to our customers and is not responsible for any agreements between the repair house, and the customer. There are no warranties offered or implied by providing this service.

After contacting Metro LED Lighting for a request for as Manufacturer’s Warranty Services, we will:

  1. Contact the Manufacturer to request a RMA be issued.
  2. Forward to you the Manufacturer’s instructions and authorization for the fixture or item being requested to be serviced under the Manufacturer’s Warranty Terms.

The Manufacturer’s Warranty Policies govern requirements for items, such as, but not limited to, period of the warranty, warranty notification, shipment costs, repair or replacement of the fixture, returned condition of the fixture, and determination of the defect. Manufacturer’s Warranties are available upon request, and govern all terms and conditions of warranty. Metro LED Lighting facilitates the repair service requests, and makes no representations about Warranty Services or the Manufacturer’s policies. Nothing outlined above modifies the original terms and conditions of sale. Please contact us to request a Manufacturer’s Warranty Service if needed.
