Why Should I Care About Full Warranty?

Posted by Instructor Bill in The Scuba Blog

Full WarrantyWell, you should.  Every item you purchase your scuba gear from an authorized dealer it comes with a full manufacturer’s warranty.

There are some online dealers of scuba equipment that are not authorized to sell by the manufacturers. Buying from online assignment help such dealers could end up costing you in the long run as the equipment you purchase will NOT be warranted by the manufacturer.REMEMBER: We are talking about life support equipment. This means that you want a company that is authorized directly by the manufacturer to sell these products.

It is that simple.

    Being an Instructor who has worked for other LDS along with owning my own and now running a Scuba Shop and an online store called I think I may be able to add some useful input here. First off, ScubaPro does not allow online sales, so this means that LeisurePro is buying on the gray market and you will not have the lifetime guarantee from them. I believe LP offers a kind of internal guarantee but that is not supported by the manufacturers. (at least not openly) Not to knock them, as they are simply working off of a different busines model than others.

    Those of us that sell scuba gear backed by the full manufacturer warranty means our prices are going to be a bit higher in most cases. While many feel that we (OlineDiveStores) are screwing the LDS I can only say this. We got real tired of people coming in and saying “I really would like to buy from you but can you match this price?” If you are willing to deal you will at least give it a try, but business is tough. Wether you are a LDS or OnlineStore you have bills to pay.

    We make it simple for divers, buy your gear from us, receive Full Manufacturer Warranty and free service the first year. Join our Scuba Club and receive 2 years free service. We also give you the information you need to make an informed decision and the rest is really up to you. No, you cannot walk into our website, but we do give you honest answers based on the factors that matter most with your gear purchase. So, I say join the future or be left behind.

    You know, I ordered from Leisure Pro and while they had great deals, it was just my luck to receive a defective product. I contacted the manufacturer and found out they weren’t authorized dealers and it wasn’t covered under warranty! PAIN IN THE BUTTOX!!!!

    I was dissapointed to hear that. It kind of makes me nervous as I had bought a lot from them.

    Will definitely check out your store, very soon. Christmas is coming and I have a lot of scuba family/friends to buy for. Don’t want them to go through the ordeal that I did.
