Roland DG Australia – Service and Support Update
Restrictions Around Australia: QLD, NSW and VIC Border Closures
Roland DG Australia continues to support our customers across Australia. However, the current Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria border closures make it difficult for us to carry out cross border scheduled services in these states. Where possible, we are working with our authorised local service network to carry out service runs for our customers located in towns close to these borders.
Service and Support for Our VIC Customers
Currently, due to local restrictions, Roland DG are prioritising break fixes and postponing country runs and services for all customers across Victoria.
For our customers who have had to close their business due to the current restrictions, we are here to support you when you’re up and running again. For our customers providing work for “essential services,” and who are still operating, we ask that you provide us with your COVID-safe plans when you book a repair visit, in line with the current rules and regulations from the Victorian Government. This is to ensure the necessary precautions are in place in order to maintain the safety of your staff and our technicians attending site. We understand you may have similar plans in place to limit interactions with customers and suppliers, and our team may ask for an update on these prior to visiting, should a break fix be required.
We’re Here to Support You Remotely
We are here to support all of our customers during this time, so please contact our support team if you need assistance. We can assist you via online tools and remote support where possible.
With the postponement of our face-to-face Roland DG Academy training, we are finalising a range of Roland DG Academy online courses that will be available soon. You can also visit the blog section on our website, and our YouTube channel for a wide range of support videos to assist you.
Roland DG Product Warranties
The current delays will not affect any applicable warranty coverage provided by Roland DG, and we will endeavour to book in your Preventative Maintenance as soon as possible.
Upcoming Service Bookings
In accordance with our Roland DG Service program, we continue to send out service reminder emails. We request that you still book in your service online so that we can coordinate this accordingly: https://www.rolanddg.com.au/support/customer-support-form
Roland DG and our service providers will continue to communicate updates to our customers whilst we work through these challenging times. Please be aware that there may be delays in booking your service, however we will assist you as best as we can.

Roland DG Australia Supports Customers with 3 Month Product Warranty Extension
Roland DG understands that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted customers in many different ways and as a result their Roland DG devices may not have been used to their full potential over the past few months. In an effort to support our loyal customers, Roland DG Australia has initiated a 3-month warranty extension program for eligible devices. Any customer whose device was under warranty as of April 1st, 2020 will receive a 3-month warranty extension as of that date, free of charge. Customers will be notified directly within the coming weeks if their device is eligible and no action is required by the customer to activate the extension.
“This has been a challenging time for many of our customers,” said John Wall, Managing Director of Roland DG Australia. “As always, Roland DG wants to make sure that customers know that the Roland DG brand is there for them in times of need to keep their businesses running. Extending the warranty on eligible devices is just one way we hope we can help you, our customers, during these difficult times.”
If you have questions about the eligibility of your Roland DG device, or would like further information, please contact us on 1800 555 199 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
