How does my customer lodge a warranty claim with INVISTA?
If your customer has a problem with their carpet and you believe it is covered by one or more of our Limited Warranties, they should call the STAINMASTER® carpet Service Centre on 1800 335 624 (Australia) or 0800 468 420 (New Zealand).
The customer will need to provide:
- An original sales receipt.
- An explanation of the issue, what caused the problem, where the carpet is installed and the areas affected and a description of what the carpet looks like now.
- When and where carpet was purchased.
- The carpet style name and colour.
- Broadlooms metres purchased.
- The date(s) and proof of professional cleaning(s) – an invoice or other documentation signed by the vendor may be required. We may also request a small piece (420 mm x 300 mm) of carpet.
What are the benefits of registering my customer’s carpet purchase?
INVISTA gives consumers the option of registering their limited warranty online at www.stainmaster.com.au or www.stainmaster.co.nz, or via the tear off card in the back of the limited warranties booklet.
As a retailer, you can also register a consumer's limited warranty by submitting an online Sales Registration for the purchase. When you do this, we will post your customer a personalised thank-you welcome package, which includes the name of your store, along with a copy of the Limited Warranties booklet. We’ll also retain the consumer’s details in our database, should a warranty issue arise in future.
If you elect to register a consumer's purchase, you must attach a Data Privacy Leaflet to their receipt. The leaflet provides your customer with a summary of how their data will be used by INVISTA, and gives them the option of accessing their information. Copies of the leaflet can be ordered from Order POS.
