17. Warranty, liability, guarantee
The warranty for movable goods is limited to the statutory period of 24 months from the date of acceptance of the goods by the buyer or, in the case of services, from the date of the order. In the case of defects justifiably complained about, either free replacement or correction of defects shall occur, for which a reasonable period of time shall be granted. If replacement or rectification of defects is out of the question (e.g. not possible, excessive effort, unreasonable, delay in delivery), the purchaser shall be entitled to a price reduction or, if the defect is not insignificant, cancellation of the contract (conversion).
Any defects that occur must be reported on delivery or after they have become visible. If the purchase is a commercial transaction (B2B) for the customer, he must inspect the goods at the latest 2 weeks after receipt and notify us immediately if a defect is found.
Our company is only liable for damages in case of intent and gross negligence. This does not apply to personal injury or consumer business. The existence of slight or gross negligence must be proven by the injured party, unless it is a consumer transaction. Compensation for (consequential) damage, as well as other material damage, financial damage and damage of third parties against the customer, insofar as it is not consumer business, is excluded. As the operator of the web shop named in the imprint, our company provides the services with the greatest care, but is not liable for the services provided by third parties or purchased from third parties.
The guarantee must be claimed from the guarantor (from the manufacturer/ sometimes also from the seller, if he is the manufacturer) and is subject to its provisions. The legal warranty is not limited by the use of the guarantee.
Storck warranty for Storck bicycles, frames and forks
Your Storck bike:
You have a two-year legal warranty on all components.
We grant you an additional warranty of one year (3 years in total) for your Storck frame and fork.
We grant a 7-years warranty on racing frames and forks of the Platinum series. This does not include damage to the paintwork and/or anodising, colour changes, for example due to UV radiation or exposure to chemicals. Damage to the bearings, with fully sprung frames.
Damage to derailleur hanger. Other bearings that are not part of the frame construction, such as headset and inner bearings. These are also excluded.
This additional warranty only applies to the first owner. If a complaint is justified within the warranty period, we will repair or replace the item.
Any further claims are excluded. In the event of a replacement, we will offer you a replacement frame or fork that is as similar as possible if the original model is no longer available. In this case, there is no claim to delivery of an original frame / original fork and to a replacement of incompatible components.
This warranty does not apply to damage caused by normal wear and tear, improper use, accidental damage or improper installation. The warranty does not apply to damage caused by the bicycle/fork not having been serviced and cleaned in accordance with our recommendations.
For warranty purposes, please keep your purchase invoice, as the date of purchase is also the beginning of the warranty period.
Storck crash replacement on Storck frames/forks
If your Storck frame or fork is damaged or destroyed by an accident or fall within 3 years, you will receive a comparable frame/fork from our current model range at 70% of the current retail price.
All guarantees expressly mentioned are additional manufacturer or dealer guarantees. The type of guarantee is stated on the product in each case. Wear (except where expressly stated on the product) and improper use do not entitle the customer to claim these additional manufacturer or dealer guarantees.
