It is absolutely critical that you check your tent before going away on holiday. We cannot be held liable for not checking the tent before your holiday to ensure all components are within the tent. Each tent is weight checked at manufacturing, to ensure all of the components are there. However, it is necessary to check, and familiarise yourself with the tent before going away.
Once a tent has been pitched outdoors it is no longer considered to be in perfect resalable condition. All tents are covered by a 2 year manufacturer's guarantee, and Outdoor World will cover the tent for the same period of time. Proof of purchase is required. Please note the guarantee does not cover damage to the tent, its poles or any other component caused by
- Severe Weather warning conditions (storm damage)
- Wear and Tear
- UV degradation
If you believe your tent has a manufacturing fault, the first thing to do is contact the tents returns line on 01924 265457.
In the event you need to return your tent in store or online, please be aware:
- The tent may not be accepted if the tent is wet or excessively dirty due to Health and Safety concerns - the tent must be 100% dry, or it will be returned to you without attention.
- Some tents may also need to be sent to a third party for assessment
- Vango tents can be extended on the warranty to 3 years, by going to Vango's website and registering the purchase.
- If you return your tent stating it is brand new and unused, and we open it to find it has clearly been used showing signs of mud, bird poo, tree sap, it will be photographed and returned to you immediately and a refund will not be processed. Unfortunately, we get this happen many times per season, as people use the product for their holiday and try to return it afterwards.
