Does my GPP transfer to replacement units?
No. Once a unit is replaced, the plan obligations are complete. You may at that time purchase a new GPP for the replacement item.
I did not buy GPP with my purchase. Can I still do so?
You can add or upgrade GPP up to 30 days from the date of the product purchase. Contact your original store for more details.
How does the Repair Credit Work?
In cases where we are unable to repair a unit due to situations beyond our control, we convert the repair estimate to an in-store credit. You can use this like a gift card against a new product. You would pay the difference, taxes and fees. This would also end our warranty obligation on the old unit and give you the opportunity to add GPP onto the new purchase.
How long does a repair take?
One to four weeks in most cases depending on parts & service availability.
Is it possible for me to solve the problem on my own?
We suggest referring to your owner’s manual for troubleshooting. Sometimes service issues can be simple general maintenance to maximize your products performance.
What is the best way to contact AVU Service Department?
Since we provide service across Canada, the best way to communicate with our team is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
What happens if my warranty runs out & I have already made a claim?
Provided you have submitted your claim during coverage, you will still be covered & we will send a servicer as soon as it is safe to do so.
