All Returns must be authorised. A warranty return form is provided in PDF format at the bottom of this page.

Please contact a sales representative for a Return Authorisation Number (RAN). Goods returned without authorisation number may not be accepted & may be returned to the sender at the senders cost.

After authorisation, goods must only be returned by our nominated mode of transport or at the customers cost. Freight will not be paid for goods returned by means other than as above.

Warranty Eligibility

Due to the high cost of labour & equipment used for checking warranty eligibility a $10.00 surcharge will be charged for goods returned as faulty yet found to be in good working order. All tests conducted by MI on goods returned are to internationally recognised standards. Testing procedures outside of these standards conducted by the returnee of goods will not be recognised as the goods being faulty. Goods found to be not covered by warranty will be returned with this surcharge & at the customers cost. Goods found to be warrantable may be credited or replaced at the customer's request.

Upon returning goods we require that a letter containing as comprehensive as possible advice is given as to the nature of the suspected fault of the product accompanies returned goods. When returning goods please include a copy of the invoice noting when the goods were received. Please circle the returned item/s & write a quantity. Please address all such returns to the Returned Goods Department as follows:
