Warranty Terms „GUNDEL Care“

Scope and duration of the warranty

This Limited Warranty extends over 3 years on suitcases manufactured by Gundel Produkt Gmbh and applies, in accordance with the conditions below, only for the first purchaser of a GUNDEL suitcase, who purchased it directly from Gundel Produkt on their online shop or platforms “ebay” or “amazon". In the case of a gift, the warranty period begins with the date of purchase for the original recipient of the baggage.

This warranty cannot be transferred to any third party and isn’t applicable to commercial or rental purposes.

Please note that your proof of purchase is required to validate the warranty.

The following guarantees apply without prejudice to the statutory warranty rights, which you as the buyer are entitled to according to Sections 437 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch/BGB). The guarantees are subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany, excluding the UN sales law.

This Limited Warranty covers manufacturing defects that might be detrimental to normal use of the product:

  • Cracks or breaks in the suitcase
  • Malfunction or defect of the wheels, handles or telescopic handle
  • No longer functional combination locks

What this limited warranty does not cover

  • Any luggage that wasn’t purchased directly from Gundel Produkt GmbH or which was resold, and thus no longer belongs to the first purchaser.
  • Luggage used as secondhand or sold as “refurbished”.
  • Products having undergone maintenance or repairs carried out by a third party prior to Gundel Produkt intervention.
  • Damages caused by improper use or modifications on the suitcase, such as transporting inappropriate objects or using the suitcase as a chair.
  • External damage such as bumps, falls, deformations, cracks, scratches during transport (e.g. airlines, railways).
  • Cosmetic Damage such as normal tear and wear, abrasion, scratches, dents, scuffs, stains, color changes, which do not impair the functionality of the suitcase.
  • Abrasion or contact with acids, solvents, or liquid.
  • Transport and/or improper packaging during the return of the product.
  • Theft.

This warranty does not cover damage caused by airline carriers. We recommend always checking your luggage after a flight (or a train ride) and reporting immediately any damage to the insured carrier (preferably before clearing customs). Most major airlines are willing to cover damages caused by poor baggage handling.
