Disadvantages of ordering directly from abroad - DJI or another supplier
- There are import duties of 7.5% - The Tariff heading for drones is "9503.00 90" (If the drone has a camera)
- Estimated courier cost back to Dji is between R2000 - R2500 and then there's a 8 week delay for receiving your drone back.
- New Airfreight regulations in 2016 means it is impossible for you send a lithium battery back to the manufacturer under warranty for a replacement.
Advantages from buying from Droneworld.co.za
- Customer peace of mind and convenience.
- Full local South African 12 month DJI warranty.
- 8 AM–5 PM Monday to Friday telephonic tech support.
- Seven day exchange for a new drone.
- We are also your support for all warranty/repairs which becomes a very costly exercise if you have to deal with DJI and send your drone back.
- After the seven days, and during the 12 month warranty, we submit to DJI on your behalf in the unlikely event of a breakdown, DJI will decide whether we should send the drone back to them for repair, or they will authorise Droneworld to give you a brand-new drone from our stock.
- Immediate replacement of component or entire drone for some of the following reasons:
- Battery dead on arrival.
- Battery charger dead on arrival.
- Drone not connecting to remote control.
- Gimble/camera not responding.
- Drone will not start on activation.
- Dead on Arrival (DOA) - meaning if your drone is received and can not switch on it will be an immediate exchange.
