At Cimilre, we want you to feel confident about your purchase of our products, and we strive to give the best after-sales service we possibly can. Here’s a rundown on our policies:
7 Day Returns – So long as your product is in saleable condition
If you have purchased one of our products and for some reason you wish to return it, then you can return your order within 7 days of purchase.This is conditional on the products being brand new – they must be completely unused, in unopened packaging and in saleable condition (i.e. we can replace them in our warehouse to be sold to another customer).
If you’ve used your breast pump or product, unfortunately we cannot accept a return.
Breast pumps and all associated accessories are personal use items, and once they’ve been used, there is no way that we can sell them to someone else or accept a return on them, for hygiene reasons.
So, just to be crystal clear – we’re only going to accept a return and refund your purchase if your products are:
- Returned within 7 days of purchase AND
- Unused, unopened and in saleable condition (able to be sold to another customer).
How to return a product
If you have changed your mind or want to return your order for some reason (see above for more detail), then assuming you meet the eligibility requirements, i.e.:
- Your date of purchase is 7 days or less in the past AND
- Your product/s are unused, unopened and in saleable condition (able to be sold to another customer);
then doing so is easy. Just get in touch with our customer support and we’ll let you know the address to send everything back to. As soon as your items have been received back at our warehouse and have been returned to stock then we’ll process a refund for you less our initial postage cost. It usually takes a few days for refunds to clear, though this depends on your bank.
More legal bits about returning a product
Once again, our refund policy only applies to goods that haven’t been used and are in their original, saleable condition. Our refund policy doesn’t apply if the product has been damaged after delivery, if the product has been opened or altered, or dropped or broken. The buyer will need to cover costs of postage and insurance, and if the product is damaged or lost during transit then this will be the buyer’s responsibility.

Warranty Overview & Making a Claim
Cimilre provides a 2 year warranty on the pump motor and a 6 month warranty on parts for all products purchased through us via our website or through one of our authorised channels. There is no warranty support on purchases ordered from overseas or unauthorised resellers. If you want to be certain that the product you are purchasing is covered by Cimilre Australia’s warranty, please contact us via email with the serial number and / or name of the person selling the pump and we can confirm this for you.
You also have consumer protection provided by Australian law, and you can read more about this here.
What is Covered
Your warranty covers defects in materials, assembly and manufacture.
What is Not Covered
The warranty does not cover any damage, deterioration or malfunction resulting from any alteration, modification, improper or unreasonable use or maintenance, wear and tear, misuse, abuse, accident, neglect, exposure to excess moisture, fire, improper packing and shipping, lightning, power surges, or other acts of nature. This warranty does not cover any damage, deterioration or malfunction resulting from the installation or removal of this product from any installation, any unauthorised tampering with this product, any repairs attempted by anyone unauthorized by Cimilre to make such repairs, or any other cause which does not relate directly to a defect in materials and/or workmanship of this product.
Please note that products bought via unauthorised or overseas retailers are not covered by any warranty provided by Cimilre.
How Long Does this Coverage Last
Cimilre provides the following:
- Two year warranty on pump motors from the date of original purchase.
- Six month warranty on parts and accessories.
Please note that parts such as valves may need replacing after 2-3 months if being used intensively. This is not a defect but reflects the nature of the product and will not constitute a warranty claim.
Who is Covered
Only the original purchaser of the product will be covered under this warranty. If you sell or transfer ownership of your Cimilre breast pump, we will not provide warranty support to the new owner.
How Cimilre handles warranty claims
Maintaining effective warranty processes is something we work hard at. We understand that mothers may be relying on our products on a daily basis, and we really try our best to minimise disruption. Here’s the process:
- You submit a warranty claim
- Return your pump to us
- We will assess your pump and in most cases repair it. If it is unable to be repaired, we will replace it with a new pump of the same model
- Once we have received your pump for assessment, we aim to complete your warranty claim within 7-10 working days
This process is intended to minimise as far as we practicably can the time that a mother is without a working breast pump.
Limitation on Liability
The maximum liability of Cimilre under this warranty shall never exceed the actual purchase price paid for the product.
If you have any questions about this warranty, making a claim or anything else, please feel free to get in touch.
