A good reason to choose a VEGE remanufactured product is ‘peace of mind’ all our products are sold with a 12 month parts & labour guarantee. Unlike many of our competitors, our warranty is not limited by mileage restriction within the guarantee period. Furthermore with branches throughout Europe; VEGE boasts a Pan-European warranty network to help you in the unlikely event that you experience a problem with a VEGE product. To ensure that our products can meet the demands of today’s exacting motoring demands, all VEGE remanufactured products are built to the highest standards. The replacement parts we use are sourced from around the world and include some of the best known brands in the automotive after-market. Our highly trained engineers inspect build quality at every stage of the remanufacturing process, all the elements of the products that we remanufacture are thoroughly cleaned before we start work and wherever possible we work to the OE manufacturer’s tolerances and procedures.
Once a product has completed the remanufacturing process it has to pass rigorous final quality control audits. Mistake proofing methods like POKA YOKE are followed at every manufacturing stage ensuring flawless product quality
VEGE remanufacture petrol engines, diesel engines, cylinder heads, pumps, injectors, gearboxes, turbo’s and DPF’s; clearly the final test for each product category varies. In some cases a hot run test is completed when this is not possible a cold-run alternative is used. Other products that cannot be tested in the aforementioned ways are vigorously inspected by our quality audit technicians before they leave our factory outlets for our European warehouses.
VEGE have a reputation for engineering excellence and proof of this is the fact that we hold a number of remanufacturing contracts for car manufacturers who ‘out-source’ their re-man programmes to VEGE.

Our Distributors/Agents/Wholesalers/Retailers are familiar with the VEGE claim process and will contact our team on your behalf.
We issue a unique ‘Warranty Claim’ number for any query that is reported, no matter how minor. This Claim number is used as a reference at every point of contact and allows us to track the claim to a successful conclusion.

TRADE CUSTOMERS – IMPORTANT INFORMATION
In an effort to manage warranty costs VEGE sells its products at Trade prices, in doing so VEGE are able to pass on a limited liability warranty.
This does not affect the statutory rights of the end user outlined in the ‘Sale of Goods Act’ but it does allow VEGE to request pre-agreed trade Labour Rates in the case of agreed claims. Under no circumstance will VEGE pay associated indirect costs of Warranty; Car Hire, Loss of Earnings, Compensation etc.
