European Warranty

    Hi all,

    I am looking to buy a fridge freezer (Samsung) in Germany. It is 400 euro cheaper than equivalent models in Ireland, and transport is 50 euro. Also it is bit nicer than the ones I can get my hands on in Ireland (within my budget). It's a saver, but I am bit worried about warranty. Obviously if I buy at harvey normans or other electrical store in Ireland, I can just go to the shop and get it fixed.

    I was wondering if something goes wrong with it, can I go to the Samsung's service in Cork, and get it fixed on the warranty? It may take a little longer, but I would be willing to take that risk.

    Cheers

    not sure how Samsung do it but a lot of manufacturers will have a troubleshooting line where if the problem cant be fixed over the phone they will organise a courier to call and collect the device from your house

    It's best to ring Samsung about this.
    Triton showers have some showers intended for the UK. B&Q & argus bring these into Ireland. Triton UK won't honour a UK warranty in Ireland. The agent here won't stock parts for these showers nor will they repair them. In fairness why would they when the shower wasn't bought through them. Long story short all you can do is take the shower off the wall and bring it back to B&Q or post it back to whoever you bought it from in the UK.
    Definitely worth a little investigation before you buy.
