Returning Nokta Products

Before you can return any product to Nokta Metal Detectors, you must obtain a return material authorization (RMA). This applies to all product returns, including warranty repair/replacements, and non-warranty repairs.

Customer Service will provide you with an RMA form that needs to be filled out completely. Upon evaluation of the issue and the problem, Customer Service will issue an RMA number and send the form back to you.

Once you have the RMA, repackage the product appropriately (see section entitled “Packaging your shipment”). Include the RMA form in the package and write the RMA number on the outside of the package. You must also include the original Warranty Certificate dated and stamped by the distributor or the dealer inside the package.

We will not accept unauthorized returns or freight collection returns; we will return these to you at your expense.

The repair department will evaluate all equipment returned for repair to determine warranty coverage and will resolve any questions that may arise during evaluation to make a final determination.

Packaging your shipment

Protecting the value of returned products by packaging and shipping them correctly is your responsibility. We reserve the right to deny warranty coverage for any damage caused by failing to meet the following packaging requirements:
• All electronic components must be taped and/or contained in their original protective packaging or an equivalent substitute.
• All parts must be packed securely inside the external shipping carton to prevent mechanical damage.
• External packaging must be sufficient to protect the contents from the usual hazards of shipping.

Warranty repair/replacements

Subject to the terms of the limited warranty in effect at the time of purchase, Nokta Metal Detectors will repair or replace a product that fails to meet the terms provided, within the product’s warranty period excluding the shipping charges. For products purchased directly from Nokta Metal Detectors, the warranty period starts from the date of shipment from Nokta Metal Detectors’s facility. For products purchased from an authorized distributor or a dealer the warranty period starts from the date of purchase.
