How the Maclaren Warranty Works
If you have a problem with your Major Elite, whether it's covered by the Warranty or not, please contact us in the first instance, 01363 881110 firstname.lastname@example.org, rather than Maclaren Customer Care even though it is a Manufacturer's Warranty.
We are experienced with the Major Elite and can often solve problems with advice by telephone or email, but if we are unable to advise on an issue then you can contact Maclaren Customer Care for their help.
TIP - we know you have busy lives but five minutes reading the User Manual will avoid some basic problems as well as helping it work best for you. Please don't also forget that you are responsible for ongoing maintenance - cleaning and lubrication.
REMEMBER a manufacture's warranty is intended to help you if there is fault with the manufacturing workmanship or materials. The warranty will not cover misuse, abuse, neglect, accident or reasonable wear & tear. The Major Elite is designed to provide mobility for a child who cannot walk and who is a co-operative occupant. The Major Elite is not designed as a 'restraint device' for a child with challenging behaviour who may de-stabilise, break or inflict excessive wear and tear on the pushchair or accessories.
Maclaren do not approve the use of a board attached to the Major Elite enabling a second child to ride the pushchair, their use may invalidate the warranty.
In the unlikely event that your Major Elite needs to be Serviced by an Engineer then this can be done at one of their Authorised Service Centres at various locations around the country and worldwide. These are usually retail stockists of their pushchairs who have Qualified Service Engineers on site. They can arrange for any spare parts required to be shipped to them from Maclaren. We do not perform any servicing ourselves.
