If there is a cost associated with your repair, you should receive an estimate from our service team within 2-3 business days of its arrival at Gentec. If your product is covered under a warranty repair, your item will be repaired and sent back to you.
If your item is not covered under warranty, a $40 estimate fee (plus tax) will be charged upon estimate rejection or if you do not respond to the estimate. If there is no response to the estimate after 60 days, your product may be sent to recycling. If you accept the estimate, this fee is waived. Rejected estimates and all out of warranty repairs that require return shipping are subject to a $10 freight charge.
Please Note: Due to the precision involved with Zeiss Optics, repairs are only handled at Zeiss factories in the U.S. or Germany. Gentec will facilitate the shipments of your products to the Zeiss factories, but repair turnaround times are outside of our control. If you contact Zeiss Germany or Zeiss USA, you will be re-directed to Gentec International for your service needs. The Gentec service department will be happy to assist you in all Zeiss service-related inquiries.
