Our insurance-backed 10-year warranty
Moonalabs is proud to be accredited members of one of the leading organisations in the UK to administer deposit protection and guarantee insurance to customers in the home improvement market, the Independent Warranty Association (IWA). Their covers provide peace of mind for up to 10 years (the length of our warranty).
An Insurance Backed Guarantee is essential protection for both customers and suppliers. In the unlikely event that we cease trading, an insurance backed guarantee will continue to honour the terms set out in our warranty.
IWA is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and listed in the Financial Services register under 305650.
We offer a 10-year, IWA insurance-backed warranty on manufacturing and workmanship defects.
We ensure the quality of our design and workmanship of all our products and expect them to provide a lifetime of enjoyment. Solid timber is a natural product and is responsive to changes in the environment. Any movement, cracking, joint separation or bowing in timber as a result of changes in humidity, fluctuating temperatures or direct sunlight is not covered under the warranty.
Any items that have been damaged due to flooding or contact with water will void any warranty. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
At Moonalabs we want our customers to be completely satisfied with their purchase.
We recommend you immediately inspect any goods that we deliver to you to ensure you are completely satisfied with the goods, including that the goods are of acceptable quality, and match the description we have provided to you.
