There’s been much discussion about the return policy, or lack of one, in the Philippines. The other side of that story is the manufacturer’s warranty coverage for that product. Many large ticket items will have warranties of 1 year or much longer. So how do you deal with that here?

What I’ve learned in my short time here is that is very important to find out if the company that produced your product has a local service center. At the very least, they have an agreement with a company that handles their service. I don’t mean a service center somewhere in the Philippines, but local to where you are staying.
