What is the Worldwide Covering Warranty Policy?
Worldwide Covering products are fully warranted to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. If a product ever fails due to a manufacturing defect, even after extended use, we will repair the product, without charge, or replace it, at our discretion. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, 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.
For warranty evaluation, your product must be returned directly to the
Worldwide Covering Inc. Warranty Department,
179 Glendale Road,
Southampton, MA 01073
All shipping to Warranty Department must be pre-paid and insured. Worldwide Covering cannot be liable for lost in-bound packages. Massachusetts State law requires that products accepted for repair be clean. Charges will be assessed if cleaning is necessary. This warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may have other rights, which vary from state to state. This warranty policy supersedes all previous warranty policies.
What does "lifetime" mean?
Our products are covered under warranty, to the original owner, for the lifetime of the product. Unfortunately, this does not mean your lifetime. Your Worldwide Covering plug or cover may not survive to the ripe old age of 70.
Are rips and tears covered by warranty?
Rips, tears, burns and holes are not covered under the terms of our warranty policy. We understand that even the best cared for cover or plug can meet with an unforeseen or unexplained accident. If your product by Worldwide Covering Inc. becomes damaged, the Worldwide Covering Warranty Department will repair it for a reasonable charge.
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 Worldwide Covering product, it will eventually begin to show age and wear. The Worldwide Covering warranty covers defects in workmanship and materials, regardless of the age of the product, but it does not cover normal wear and tear.
Will my product by Worldwide Covering Inc. be repaired or replaced?
If your product by Worldwide Covering Inc. fails due to a manufacturing or workmanship defect, our first option will be to repair the item, free of charge. If the product is not repairable, or if the cost of repairing the item exceeds the cost of a new one, we will replace it.

Please mark the areas in question on the product with colored tape or masking tape, so we can find them easily, and make sure that your note describes their location.
Please send the product in clean. Massachusetts State law requires that products accepted for repair be clean. Sending out a product for cleaning adds an unexpected delay of two weeks or more.
When returning your covering or plugs, please brush off any dirt, and sponge clean, if needed. Covers and plugs not clean enough to work on will be returned to you.
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.

The Warranty Department does not require or issue return authorizations for items being returned for evaluation and repair. Once we receive your product, we will assign a repair order number to it, and send a postcard notification with the repair order number and an initial status report.
As stated in our warranty policy, the customer pays the shipping charges to send products to the Warranty Department. Worldwide Covering 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. During peak season our turnaround time can stretch to six weeks. If your product needs to be sent out to be cleaned, you may expect up to two additional weeks before it will be returned to you.
The cost of non-warranty repairs varies from one repair to another, depending on the cost of the materials and length of time it takes for us to do the repair. If you are concerned about the expense, you can ask us to notify you of the repair costs. After your product is assessed, we will send you a postcard with a final estimate, and request that you call us to approve the charges. You may also give us a limit, i.e. "Please notify me if the repair charges exceed $40."
Can my product repair be rushed?
In special cases, if you need your repair back before the normal expected turnaround time, we can do a rush repair for you for no additional charge. To request a rush, please send your product to us by way of Federal Express, UPS 2nd Day Air, or some other speedy means. Please write RUSH in big letters on the box. Include a note, asking us to do a rush repair, with your name, address, and phone number. Please explain what the necessary repairs are, and give us the date you need your product back. We will do all we can to see that you have it back in time.
