Behind the scenes: "Five days is our aim"

ZEISS binoculars, riflescopes and spotting scopes stand for top quality and durability. Even so, products can sometimes be damaged by rough use.

The Carl Zeiss Customer Service Centre is never busier than at the end of the autumn-winter season or the start of the deer hunting season. From battered binoculars to silted-up focusing wheels or scratched lenses, we see just about everything. Most damage occurs on hunting expeditions when everything gets hectic and the huntsman only has eyes for his target. When hunting chamois deer, for example, the rangefinder can fall down a steep scree slope. If you are unlucky this can affect the functionality of the digital display or the measuring accuracy of the laser.

Once a product has found its way back to Wetzlar, it goes straight to the diagnostic station. Here it is carefully inspected and a decision is made as to what measures are necessary. If the repair costs less than € 200, work starts straightaway. If the repair is rather more expensive or total reconstruction is required you are first asked whether you agree to the estimated costs.

Klaus Felgenhauer, Head of Customer Service in Wetzlar, is constantly working to cut repair times: “In the last five years we have completely restructured our customer service operations. While waiting times used to be considerably longer, today we get all repairs done in an average of six working days – depending on the complexity, age and type of product. This does not take delivery times into account. In 80 per cent of cases we are now even managing an average processing time of maximum five working days”.

Service & Repairs

How it works, when things no longer work?

What do I need to do if I want to have my ZEISS binoculars or riflescope checked over?

You could either send us your product directly or you could arrange it all via your dealer or gunsmith. Where possible please remember to include your warranty card or proof of purchase. This helps us to determine the warranty period. It is important to include a brief description of the repair that needs to be carried out.

The best way to do this is to download our repair form. Simply fill in the form and send it, together with your well packaged item, to the following address:

Carl Zeiss Sports Optics GmbH
Customer Service
Gloelstr. 3-5
35576 Wetzlar

We will examine your product in detail. You will then be given a quotation of the anticipated costs and you can decide whether you would like us to do the work or not. As soon as we have your permission, we get started on the repair.

We sometimes carry out small repair jobs free of charge. In this case instead of a quotation you will simply receive your restored product back again.
