ป Register Your Product

You will receive an email confirming your registration.

Once you have registered to take part in the Hardy Product Warranty and Repair Service you will be entitled for the lifetime of the product to the repair or replacement (at our discretion) of damaged, broken or defective sections of your rod in accordance with these terms.

The Hardy Product Warranty and Repair Service is in addition to and does not affect or reduce the owner’s statutory rights which cover against manufacturing faults and mis-described goods during the statutory period. Please ensure you retain proof of purchase as this will be requested upon making a claim under your statutory rights.

How much does it cost?

Warranty Charges

Rods manufactured since January 2002 are covered by our Worldwide Extended Warranty. Claims under the Hardy Product Warranty and Repair Service are currently subject to the following charges:

$75 to cover repair/replacement, handling, administration and return postage and packing charge (per claim). For rods manufactured before 2002, please contact the customer service team to find out the cost of your claim.

A handling and repair/replacement fee will be chargeable for each claim made under the Hardy Product Warranty and Repair Service. For current charges see Warranty Charges in the shaded box or contact your nearest customer service department. Hardy reserves the right to change the handling fee and repair/replacement fee from time to time without notice.

Customers are requested to retain a proof of purchase to aid with the claims process.

Discontinued models: We may at our discretion offer you a comparable rod from the current range, at a discounted price.

How to make a claim

In the event of a claim, the entire rod, or remaining pieces, should be sent to the Hardyฎ Customer Service Department for assessment with a copy of the completed Warranty Repair/Replacement Form. If the rod has not been registered, a copy of the original proof of purchase must be included.
