Bokkura Expedition is not conducting repairs of damaged items, but can offer to forward repair requests to the manufacturer in Germany for evaluation of the repair and possible quotation. Due to seasonal work load patterns, the manufacturer generally conducts repairs only in winter. Due to shipment costs both to and from Germany, in many cases it will unfortunately be more economical to order a replacement part than to repair. For evaluating if repair is possible as well as for preparing a quotation, in cases where photographic material is not sufficient to reliably assess the damage, it will be necessary to send the item to either Bokkura Expedition or Klepper Germany with both shipment to and from Bokkura Expedition or Klepper Germany be born by the costumer in advance. Shipment costs will not be refunded even in case the item is evaluated as not repairable.
For repaired items, Klepper warrants the repair to be free of defective workmanship or materials under the same conditions as above for product, however for a period no longer than 6 months starting from return shipment from Klepper or Bokkura Expedition. In case of a defect please present your receipt of repair.
