Transfer of ownership.

I am re-joining the Flex family after a few months.  I sold my 6500 way too far in anticipation of the new 6000 series devices.

I have acquired a very good condition (just over a year old) 6700 and Maestro - I had been waiting for a 6600 but I think that this better suite my needs!

My new transceiver has already been updated to v2 so I need not worry on that score but is there anything else that I need to do to transfer ownership of this box from the seller to me?

Wishing all the very best for 2018!

If under warranty you’ll want to do a warranty transfer.

You can contact the dealer in your country and enquire as to the process.

This is generally what US customers do:

In Europe we not know "Warranty transfer" - Warranty here is on product and not on "customer" :-)

You must have the invoice; that shows the date of purchase and then (here in DL) 2 years warranty

Yep, that is why I did not want to just provide the warranty transfer link. EU has different laws, and UK (which will soon not be part of EU) will have different laws as well. Even some states have different laws here too. That's why the dealer is the best point of contact as they know the laws.

Thank you everyone... I will contact the dealer (ML&S) and speak to them about the warranty - which I hope that I shall never need!!!

This is assuming he has to pay. In Europe he may not have to.

I think that possibly I was not clear in my previous post.  I do not have any issues with the rig or the Maestro.  

I just want to understand where I stand.  Icom, for example, have a very enlightened warranty policy.  As Chris DL5NAM said, it is the equipment that is warrantied and not the purchaser.  This is not the case with Yaesu or Kenwood where the warranty is not transferrable. I do not know what the warranty policy is with respect to FlexRadio sold by an official UK dealer.

I have written to Martin Lynch & Sons who were the original suppliers of my 6700 & Maestro.  I have asked them to confirm the date of purchase, the warranty expiry date and my warranty status as the second owner.

It is covered by the consumer protection laws of the EU and/or the country of purchase.

Thanks Tim.  I have asked ML&S to clarify exactly what they are because it is a bit of a minefield to be honest.  I am very hopeful that once the EU is out of the picture it may become clearer!
