Please retain your receipt

In order to obtain a refund, credit, exchange or to repair a product purchased from Heavy Duty RC, you must have clear proof of purchase - e.g. a receipt or website confirmation email.

If we are not 100% certain that you purchased the product from us then, under the law, we are entitled to elect whether or not to accept your product for return or refund.

Heavy Duty RC will not accept a bank or credit card statement unless the amount shown on that statement directly corresponds to the amount at which the product in question was purchased. Where multiple items were purchased in that transaction, it limits our ability to establish proof of purchase. Heavy Duty RC cannot provide copies of receipts if lost or misplaced.

If any product ordered by you arrives damaged or is not of acceptable quality you have rights under our Refund Policy to have the product repaired or replaced or to receive a refund or credit for the price paid by you for the product. If your order arrives damaged, please contact the Customer Service Team immediately.

Returns and Repairs

You may return the goods we have delivered to you by mail.  Please contact our Customer Service Team via email for further advice on lodging your return.  

Goods must be returned within a reasonable time. This timeframe may vary from product to product and may depend on the type of product you purchased and the price you paid.

If any goods cannot be easily returned to us, due to their size, or other such circumstance, please contact our Customer Service Team and we will arrange an alternative assessment of the goods.

Goods returned for repair will be assessed and/or repaired within a reasonable time. You may be provided with an indicative repair time, which may vary due to reasons beyond ours or the repairer’s reasonable control, such as part availability, incorrect fault description or manufacturer/distributor delay.


Product Assessment

The available remedy will depend on whether the fault amounts to a major failure. Where the product fault is difficult or potentially dangerous to determine remotely (for example if it is an electrical or battery item), we will need to consult with the manufacturer to determine the fault and resolution.

The manufacturer will determine whether a product has incurred a major or minor fault. The manufacturer or distributor will determine whether:

  1. There is no fault found
  2. There is a minor fault which can be easily repaired within a reasonable time frame
  3. There is a major fault found and the customer is to be offered a replacement, credit or a refund
  4. The product has been damaged or abused through misuse.

Where the manufacturer or distributor’s assessment finds that there is no fault with the goods, or that the goods have been damaged due to misuse or abnormal use of the goods by you, we may require, at our option, that you compensate us for any fee imposed on us by the manufacturer or distributor in relation to this assessment.

Unfortunately, Heavy Duty RC cannot offer a refund, credit or exchange where the product has sustained damage due to abnormal use, whether that has been identified by Heavy Duty RC or the manufacturer 

If the product does not match its advertised description, Heavy Duty RC will provide you with a choice between a credit to the value of the item purchased or an exchange.


When applicable, refunds will be made by Heavy Duty RC via the method of payment you used to make your online purchase or via store credit.  Whether to grant a cash refund or store credit is at the discretion of Heavy Duty RC staff. Refunds will normally be processed within seven (7) days. If you are granted an exchange for the reason of not having proof of purchase, you will be given an exchange or credit to the value of the lowest recorded system price as its purchase date cannot be determined.
