Dead On Arrival (DOA)
Athema Services Ltd will offer a standard warranty period of seven days from purchase date on all products.

We ask all customers to sign deliveries as "Unchecked" if there are signs of box damage, and must report any damage within 48 hours upon receipt of goods.
If your product goes faulty after the seven-day standard DOA warranty, the return of this item will then have to comply with the original Manufacturer’s Warranty. In some cases this will be dealt with directly by the manufacturer. If a product is sent back to us for a repair and is found not to be faulty, a return delivery & labour charge will be liable to the customer.
