Online Repair Inquiries and Process
STEP 1 Inquiring about a repair
Please contact us through our repair inquiry customer support email.
Based on the information and photos that you provided, we will consult with Japan and also have our expert repair craftspeople conduct a preliminary repair assessment. Our customer support staff will reply to you within three to five working days after receiving confirmation.
If the damages to your product are unable determined through the photos, we will ask you to send the product you wish to have repaired to our company for an assessment.
STEP 2 Explaining the repair method and cost
Our customer support staff will contact you via email or phone to explain the suggested repair method, the time required, and the cost. The assessment period is about 10 working days
The repair period is typically 8 to 10 weeks, but may take even longer during long weekends or if parts are not readily available.
STEP 3 Sending the product for repair
After providing an online price quotation and confirming that you would like to send your product in for repair, our customer support staff will ask you to send or personally deliver the product to a designated location.
If you already sent the product to the company for an assessment during the inquiry period, our customer support staff will arrange for repairs after obtaining your permission.
STEP 4 Starting the repair
Depending on what type of repairs are needed, your product will be repaired by either Tsuchiya Kaban-certified craftspeople overseas or by our craftspeople in Japan.
The repair period is typically 8 to 10 weeks. There is the possibility that the repair will take more than 10 weeks if parts are difficult to obtain, or in the case of long weekends in Japan or force majeure situations.
STEP 5 Paying for the repair
After the repair of goods, customer service staff will notify you to pay the repair costs.
