If dryers are placed into an environment that has very poor air quality or is prone to large amounts of dust, this may clog up the internal parts and reduce the lifespan of the dryer which will not be covered under warranty.

You can either arrange collection yourself or we can arrange a courier to deliver the goods back to you at an agreed cost.
