Beware, when you buy tires on the net

We have taken nethandlen to us, and it may also seem natural to take a trip through the websites from the big dæksupermarkeder, when slidmønstret on the four-wheel starts to be down.

It is particularly topical at this time how many danes changing from winter to summer tires. But there are a number of things you must consider before you press bestillingsknappen.

– Quite basic, there are the same advantages to shopping deck online as with other goods: You can see how prices and competition is, look for good deals and get an overview of what is up and down. But if the deal does not go dead straight, so it can be both inconvenient and expensive, notes Lennert Fogh, who is head of department for legal advice from the FDM.

There are several clear differences in to buy the tires and, for example, a pair of shoes on the net. Behind the websites, which mostly have a Danish url, save often to companies in other parts of Europe.

that you even need to find a Danish shop will mount the tires and if there is ever a problem along the way, it may be difficult to place responsibility. At the same time, it can also be an expensive, complicated and, not least, time-consuming affair that were supposed to ship any problemdæk back to the dealer.

– If you notice that a tire, for example, the rumbles, the problem may perhaps lie in either the tire, mounting, balancing effect or the car. Here, it can be difficult to place the responsibility, and who should pay for the cost of disassembly and return. Then you are more assured of having it all gathered in one place, although it can be a more expensive solution, says Lennart Fogh.

, director of the tire industry in Denmark, have seen examples of people who have ordered tires, which, they believed, was tending to a passenger car, but which turned out to be made for a van. And other features according to the director had to wait long at the complaints.

– the Challenge is (to find out, red.), where to turn if something goes wrong. And what should one do, if one must do without a deck in eight weeks, while the reklamationsbehandles? Here it is better to buy the deck in one place, where they are also mounted, so you can get advice and guidance, says Volker Nitz and continues:

– Tires are not just a pair of shoes for 350 bucks, you order. It is a security product. It's not just about size but also about the specifications that you must ensure before ordering. Although the deck is a's premium brand and has the right dimensions, so it is not certain that it fits the car in question. Some models fit better with certain decks than others.

FDM gets according to the head of department Lennart Fogh regularly inquiries from members who have questions about the purchase of tires on the foreign websites.

– Lots of people have good experiences with buying tires on the net. But you have to be 100 percent sure what to go for, and be prepared to do any legwork, he says, and adds:

– at the same time to do away with himself, how big one's risk tolerance is. If it goes well, perhaps you can save some money, but if there are problems, it strikes harder.

you need to keep an eye out with

There are a number of things that you must have in mind when purchasing tyres on the web. It also applies to your rights when filing a claim.

As a starting point you have as a consumer the same consumer protection in other EU countries as in Denmark. Here you can by problems usually complaint through the European Consumer, and the sale of goods act gives you two years warranty as a consumer.

some of the Danish companies a warranty, which should provide the consumer better than the rules. It means that the company itself must prove that it has the right, if it considers that the consumer complaint is covered by the warranty.

in the practice of the different foreign sites, can be difficult to figure out, says Lennart Fogh. He is head of department for legal advice from the FDM and have seen examples of websites that have Danish language in the order, while the pages about the warranty or complaints management are in other languages.

– the Question is whether you want to raise a matter by, for example, a Dutch court or through the European Consumer, or just want to buy a new tire in Denmark in order to conclude the matter – and so maybe end up with higher costs than expected, says Lennart Fogh.

to look for the websites that provides a better guarantee than the statutory minimum. In practice, the location of the company, also be of great importance, for, although the consumer protection similar across the EU, there is a great difference to scurry across to the local them as advertising with problemdækkene and to get them dismantled, packaged and shipped abroad.

Deselect also companies outside the EU, where you do not in advance can be sure what rights you have as a consumer.
