What is the Baby Sherpa Warranty Policy?
Baby Sherpa Diaper Bag Backpacks and products are fully warranted to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for 30 days from purchase. Please check your item before using it or removing the hangtags, since we do not accept the returns without tags or used. If a product ever fails due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair the product, without charge, or replace it, at our discretion. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident (getting caught in a car door), improper care, negligence, normal wear and tear, or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use. Damage not covered under warranty will be repaired for a reasonable rate and a fee will be charged for return shipping.
This warranty policy supersedes all previous warranty policies.
Note: This warranty does not cover products not bought at authorized Baby Sherpa dealers.
Can I return it to the retailer where I purchased it for warranty?
Only if you notice a defect within the first 14 days of your purchase. After that all warranty issues must be sent to either the Canadian or US warranty department.
Are rips and tears covered by warranty?
Rips, tears, burns and holes are not covered under the terms of our warranty policy. Caught your buckle in the car door? Not covered, but we can repair it for you.
Is normal wear and tear covered by warranty?
We manufacture all of our products to meet our superior standards. However, regardless of how carefully you use, or how well you care for your Baby Sherpa product, it will eventually begin to show age and wear. Baby Sherpa warranty covers defects in workmanship and materials, but it does not cover normal wear and tear.
I really don't want to send my pack in. Isn't there something else you can do?
If you want warranty service for your pack, it is up to you to send it to our service center. We understand that sending the defective pack to us may be inconvenient. However, it's the only way we can be sure that the pack is fully repaired. It also helps us identify and correct problems in our materials or our manufacturing process. With that information, we can continue to improve our products and our quality.
Our normal turnaround time is about four weeks, usually less. This includes the shipping time by ground to you. If this turnaround time becomes a problem for you, tell us. We can sometimes "rush" repairs through for special situations. Just let us know.
Should I insure my product when I mail it in?
Please insure your product by Baby Sherpa for its full value when you send it to us. Use a shipping method that provides a tracking number, to ensure that your product will arrive safely.
Who pays for shipping?
As stated in our warranty policy, the customer pays the shipping charges to send products to the Warranty Department. Baby Sherpa will absorb the return shipping charges. If you request that we return your product by UPS Overnight or 2nd Day Air, the additional shipping charges will be billed to you. Shipping charges for all non-warranty repairs are at the owner's expense.
How long will my repair take?
Our typical turn around time is three to four weeks from the time we receive your product until it is returned to you. In some cases we can get it back to you sooner. In rare cases, it may take longer.
Other Important Questions:
How should I clean my Baby Sherpa?
We recommend you clean your pack with a damp cloth as necessary. Do not machine wash or use detergent or bleach. Line dry. (Be gentle... you wouldn't want to be put in the washing machine or the dryer, either!)
I lost my diaper pad how do I get a new one?
Replacement parts can be ordered for your Baby Sherpa-just check our products section.
I took off my bottle pocket to rinse it out and now it doesn’t want to stay on what should I do?
You might have forgotten to thread the webbing through the webbing slot on the side. Take off the bottle pocket thread through the webbing and then Velcro it. If you forget to thread it through the webbing the Velcro will not hold the weight and the pocket will come off.
