Tubbs continues to strive to make technological advances that will make our snowshoes more ergonomic, and our aim is to better the experience our dealers and customers have with our company. In this vein, we are excited to inform you of the launch of Tubbs Authorized Repair Centers (ARC) as an opportunity for better repair services. To help customers receive faster service, Tubbs has moved all non-warranty repair services to designated Authorized Service Centers.
Our Seattle facility continues to perform all warranty service work, and our qualifications for coverage under the Tubbs warranty policy have not changed. The addition of the Authorized Service Centers for non-warranty snowshoe repairs is to improve our dealer and customer service with more efficient service and faster turnaround.
Products purchased from a retailer must be returned to the point of purchase. Dealers will then process the repair or warranty claim with Tubbs on behalf of the consumer. To better understand this change, see the new procedure below:
Non-Warranty Repair Service Procedure
- Dealer contacts Tubbs Customer Service regarding potential repair service.
- Customer Service will ask if request is for repair or warranty.
- For repair, Customer Service will direct dealer/customer to website and/or provide email listing of Authorized Snowshoe Repair Centers (ARC).
- For repairs, all dealings are between Authorized Snowshoe Repair Centers (ARC) and dealer/consumer. Cost of repairs will be the responsibility of the consumer.
Warranty Repair Service Procedure
- For warranty service, Customer Service will request an email photo and description of problem. Tubbs Customer Service will evaluate the warranty request and respond with decision.
- If Tubbs deems problem is covered under warranty, a return authorization number (RA #) will be provided for return. Product will be repaired or replaced.
- Should dealer/consumer feel photo and description are inadequate to fully evaluate warranty claim, snowshoes can be returned for inspection at our facility. There will be a $25 charge for this evaluation. Customer Service will provide an RA #.
- Upon physical evaluation, if the problem is determined to be covered under warranty, the $25 fee will be waived and snowshoes will be repaired or replaced at no charge.
- In the event snowshoe is not covered under warranty, it will be returned to dealer/consumer at owner’s expense to proceed with Authorized Snowshoe Repair Center (ARC).
