The original seller would use their name on the new owner's (the person that bought the PJ) home address when the original seller creates the ticket for the now owner of the JVC. The now/new owner of the JVC would do the shipping, the old owner would not be involved at all except for ticket creation or verification, so the TO and FROM would be the same address but under a different name. They cannot refuse the shipment just because the address doesn't match the address of the original purchase when you bought the PJ, people move all the time and it's not their job to keep track of that. If a projector ships to a location (from UPS/Fedex) with a different name on it, it doesn't really matter. People have kids / parents / or wives that kept their original last name, so UPS/Fedex doesn't care either, so none of this "X must match X" stuff actually works very well for the MFR's.
That said, the EXCEPTION to all this could be if JVC ask's for some type of verification due to address change (but with the Original Seller's name on the new owner's address, I highly doubt they would ask anything), but that is why you need the original seller involved potentially, and he can verify anything very easily.Disclaimer:
I am not advocating for being deceptive, so if you get questioned when doing this, it's your own decision. That is why I said I personally would buy a square trade warranty to go with it just in case they do ask questions, I would find myself having a hard time lying about it if questioned, but at the same time it's not RIGHT that warranties are non-transferable, their should be a law that forces warranties to be transferable IMHO for all consumer goods except with maybe a couple exceptions (would not apply to B2B).
Companies partly discourage warranty transfer rights in order to reduce the saturation of used products hurting their new products sales, and to reduce the number of warranty claims from shipping, but IMHO it is not a FAIR practice for the consumer, and the sales benefit they get from it is too minimal for the damage they do. What we need is a better system of shipping documentation from the shipping carriers, and a better enforced warranty policy for C2C used transactions.
