Terms and Conditions

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE. All users of this site agree that access to and use of this site are subject to the following terms and conditions and other applicable law. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.

Pick Up from Warehouses

Check you have the right items! When you collect goods from one of our warehouses or partner warehouses you must check the goods before leaving the warehouse. If you find the warehouse staff have brought you the wrong products and/or wrong colour products, you must let them know and call Dream Kayaks on 098894089 so we can resolve the situation on the spot. It is your responsibility to ensure you have collected the correct items. If you forget to check on site and leave the warehouse either with the wrong product (e.g., wrong colour, etc.) or without some items (eg swivel rod holder) we retain the right to charge you a fee for correcting the situation. In the event that you left with the wrong colour kayak for instance, when you come back to swap it for the correct colour, the warehouse, being a third party, will charge us for receiving the returned goods, and for picking the replacement goods, and for time spent dealing with the swap. We retain the right to pass on these charges to you, and will require these charges to be paid before the swap is organised. All costs associated with returning the goods to the appropriate warehouse will be incurred by you, the customer.

Returns and Refunds

We do not accept returns due to change of mind. If you think there is a fault with your kayak please contact us immediately by emailing sales@dreamkayaks.co.nz

Collection Deadline

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, customers who elect to collect their kayak(s) from a warehouse or store have two weeks from the date of purchase to collect the kayak(s). After that we will charge the customer $10 a week per kayak storage fee for every week or part thereof the kayak is left in our possession. This storage fee is non-refundable.

Warranty Claims

Kayak warranties are void if the customer fails to follow our kayak care guidelines. In the event of a warranty claim, you will need to return the faulty goods to a Dream Kayaks facility. Costs associated with returning the goods to the facility will be borne by you, the customer. If the issue is deemed by us upon investigation to be a manufacturing fault, we will repair, refund or replace the faulty goods. We decide which of these options we adopt. The customer cannot choose. In the event that Dream Kayaks elects to replace a returned kayak deemed by Dream Kayaks to be faulty, the customer will be required to collect the replacement kayak from a Dream Kayaks facility. Any transportation of the replacement kayak back to the location of a customer will be arranged at the expense of the customer. In the event that we receive a returned product under a warranty claim, and we deem the claim to have no basis, the cost of returning the product to the customer will be at the expense of the customer.

NOTE: The warranty of any kayak hull is void if you store your kayak on a trolley.

Your rights under the NZ Consumer Law

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the NZ Consumer Law. 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.

The financial burden of returning the goods to one of our registered warehouses or Gold Coast store for repair or replacement will be born by the customer.
