Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, and we have either received the goods back or, if earlier, received evidence that you have sent the goods back, we will refund any sum debited by us from your credit or debit card within 14 calendar days.
We may make a deduction from your refund for any loss in the value of the goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
We are happy to fully refund the cost of all items if they are returned to us within 14 days of receipt assuming:
The items are unopened/unused.
The items are returned to us in a condition in which they could be resold.
The items had not previously been altered by us specifically for your use or by your request.
You have first contacted us to inform us that you would be returning the goods to us. We may give a reference number and this should be quoted on all correspondence with us.
We reserve the right to refuse goods received outside this 14 day period and if not in the original packaging or as new
Your statutory rights are not affected. On receipt of the returned goods we will either exchange them, credit your account or process a full refund minus any postage/delivery costs.
If you are returning an item because of an error on our part i.e the wrong item was sent to you, then we will refund the delivery charges incurred, assuming the item is returned to us in a way which has been mutually agreed.
Please note that you the customer will be responsible for all incurred postage costs for returning items to us unless you are returning the items because of an error on our behalf as explained above. As we will not accept any responsibility for returned items that we do not receive, we would suggest you return them via a recorded service.
Lost, Delayed or Damaged Items
We will not be held financially responsible for any loss due to a delay in the delivery of your order as this is undertaken by a third party whom we have chosen to deliver your goods.
If we establish that your goods are lost in transit prior to attempted delivery to you then we will either resend your order, or offer a full refund.
Once the courier has attempted delivery it will be your responsibility to arrange the subsequent redelivery of your parcel, and to seek any compensation from the courier if this matter cannot be resolved. We will, however, seek to assist you where possible and in some instances will be able to issue a compensation claim on your behalf. However, please be aware that all claims must be made to us within 14 days of the date of ordering, and may take a further 28 days to be resolved. A positive result in your favour, and financial recompense to you, is not guaranteed.
Should the goods arrive damaged owing to a courier fault we must insist that you contact us immediately and do not start to use the goods until we have established further course of action. We may request that you return the damaged goods to us as this will help with our claim for compensation as courier companys often need proof of damage. The cost of returning the damaged item/s to us will be refunded as part of the courier compensation claim
If returning damaged goods to us please contact us to discuss the method by which we would like the items returned.
