Shipping & Delivery

What to do if the parcel is damaged?

We set a high value on a good quality of our packaging to protect shipments against typical damages in transit. However, in case of receiving a damaged parcel, please contact us or DPD within 2 working days. Please keep detailed records of the damage (e.g. taking a picture). Please send the full inf ormation to us via email. We take care about anything else for you. The handling of the claim for compensation by the transport insurance usually takes 1-3 weeks on average. In single cases it can take longer time. After adjusting the damage by DPD, you will receive either a refund or a replacement delivery. Of course, in single cases the replacement is performed faster.

I received a shipping-number, but the shipment takes extraordinary long.


Please send us an Email if the shipment takes extraordinary long time. Maybe the postman can’t make out your home. Possible reasons therefore might be:

  • wrong name at the entrance
  • hidden door
  • big apartment building

Therefore, when or dering, please make sure that the information you give us is correct. You can also make additional specifications. Furthermore, please enter your phone-number when ordering so that the shipper can contact you if any further questions appear. It is also possible to directly contact the shipper under specification of your shipping-number to make sure the second attempt of delivery will be done faster.

Can I come to the Kunzmann-Shop to pick-up the goods by myself?

The Kunzmann-Onlineshop is a pure online presence. Please note that therefore it is not possible to pickup the goods at our shop by yourself.

Why is my order delayed? / Delivery bottlenecks

We do a careful and proactive product planning. However, in case of items with a high demand short-term backlogs can appear in our central warehouse. Such items are replenished immediately within 1-2 days from our central warehouse. If a long-term problem appears, we will contact you as soon as poss ible to inform you about the further procedure. Information on the delivery status of our products is updated by us regularly. Items which are especially popular can be out of stock faster than they are updated in our shop.

Pricing

Why our prices are lower compared to local distributors?

We exclusively distribute our items via the internet. Thus, some costs which otherwise would exist at a car sales house, (e.g. rental costs for showrooms, customer consultant around the clock etc.) can be reduced. Another point are high purchase quantity’s, by which further economics are realized. All this allows us to sell our products at the best price possible.

Are discounts possible?

Generally, discounts on prices in our shop are not possible as our products are already offered to the best prices possible.

What about special dealer conditions?

Our prices are already calculated for end customers. Therefore trade-discounts are only possible in single cases and must be checked in advance by one of our staff members.

How does the warranty and goodwill processing work?


By buying in our Onlineshop, you also received a dealer invoice from an official Mercedes-Benz contractual partner/VW service operator. Thus, you have the right to get the Mercedes-Benz or Volkswagen warranty Europe-wide. To speed up the processing, please contact the VW or Audi contractual pa rtner which is next to you. Together with the original bill you received from us, your contractual partner can take necessary data, carrying out a fault diagnosis in installed condition and generating a damage report. In addition, the dealer can carry out an exchange in advance on good will basis to make sure your mobility isn’t affected.

You can submit the warranty claim with us as well. Please take into account that the processing by the warranty department of Mercedes-Benz, VW / Audi can take up to three months. Furthermore we can’t carry out an exchange in advance but rather have to wait for the results of the warranty proposal.

Please send us the following information to process your application:

  • a copy of the original invoice
  • a copy of the invoice for the installation (damages caused by self-assembly are not covered by the warranty)
  • vehicle identification number
  • the current mileage
  • official license plate
  • completely documented/certified proof of damages (e.g. from the dealer / specialist workshop + stamp + pictures)
  • further information

Please send this information together with the damaged part back to us. Moreover, please declare all warranty cases to us in advance so that we can provide you appropriate support. Being an authorized dealer, we are strictly bound to the warranty guidelines of Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Audi. We are not allowed to deviate from this procedure.
