If it is determined that a replacement unit and/or component is warranted, Alpine Technical Support will process and send an exchange product to the customer (Advanced Exchange). The exchange product will be a factory “Core Replacement” unit that is cosmetically perfect and reliability tested.
The customer will need to provide a valid credit card and authorize Alpine for holding an amount equal to the retail price of the exchange product.
Alpine will ship the exchange product via 2nd day air freight, prepaid with reusable carton, packing material, and will include a prepaid return shipping label.
Upon receiving the exchange product, the customer packs the defective product using the reusable carton and packing material, attaches the prepaid shipping label to the carton box, and ships back to Alpine. The returned product must meet all of the following requirements:
The returned product agrees with the original request.
The returned product has not been abused (i.e. dropped, contaminated with liquid, mis-installed, etc.).
The returned product must include a copy of the customer's bill of sale (receipt) to validate the warranty.
In the event the defective product is not returned within 20 days after receiving the exchange product, or the returned product does not comply with the requirements of 5a, 5b, and 5c, the customer’s credit card will be billed for the amount equal to the retail price of the product plus a $25 handling fee. The returned product will be shipped back to the customer.
For Out-of-Warranty product, this Advanced Change procedure does not apply. Please send the defected unit to Alpine for repair. Refer to Limited Warranty statement that came with your product for complete details.
