What's Instant Replacement?
Our Instant Replacement plan means you’ll be supported if your product breaks down due to an electrical or mechanical fault.
If your product breaks down, we’ll give you a new one on the spot. If we’ve got your product in store we’ll swap it straight away, if not we’ll find you an alternative replacement.
If your product breaks down due to an electrical or mechanical fault.
