In order to avoid unnecessary complications and expense, please ensure any items you order are the items actually required. These cancellation clauses do not apply to items manufactured specifically to order or to trade (business to business) sales.
If, for any reason you wish to do so, you have the right to cancel any order you have placed (other than in respect of goods made to your specification, clearly personalised items or bespoke kits). Email [email protected] or call us on +44 (0) 1981 241668 if you wish to cancel before the goods have been dispatched; written cancellation by e-mail may still be required/requested. If goods have been delivered you may cancel at any time up to 14 days later, starting from the day after the goods were received. You are required to maintain the goods in good order while you have them and we ask that you return the goods, using a "signed for service" within 14 days of your notice to cancel, with the original packaging and identifying documents (see below).
If you are returning an item then you must include a copy of your order acknowledgement e-mail and/or the paperwork provided with that item and return to the address specified in your acknowledgement of cancellation e-mail (see 6.3 below). Failure to return goods to the correct address may delay the processing of your refund.
The following procedures will apply:
6.1 If you wish to cancel before the items are dispatched you are asked to contact us, by e-mail or telephone (see above), as soon as it is practicably possible. If your card has been debited, you will receive a full refund. If the goods have been dispatched, but not yet delivered, you can choose to refuse the delivery from our couriers. The item is then re-routed back to us via the same courier service and we will treat the item as not required or unsuitable and refund your item and original delivery charges. If we incur any charges for the re-routing back to us, these may be passed on to you.
6.2 If the goods have been received and are not suitable, or are no longer required and your cancellation notice is received within 14 days after the items have been delivered, our Customer Services department will either, arrange for a courier to collect (larger/heavier items), or will request that you post the item back to us using a "signed for" Royal Mail letter, or parcel service; Please ensure any original packaging is also returned. If posting, please keep a proof of postage for your records until you receive a refund. You are required to keep the item in reasonable condition. We will refund the original carriage costs, but reserve the right to charge for the return carriage and to charge you for any damage that may have occurred whilst the goods have been in your possession..
6.3 Confirmation of the return address and any other requirements specific to your return will be sent by e-mail following your notice to cancel; a printed copy of this document should be enclosed with your return for identification purposes. If requested to return the items yourself, we recommend using Royal Mail's letter or parcel services (whichever is most appropriate). Always request the cheapest "signed for" method of returning the item.
6.4 Returning defective, damaged or incorrect items - If you have received an item that is defective, damaged or was incorrectly described, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know and that you are returning the item. We ask that you return the item within 7 days of advising us that you are doing so and include paperwork as per items 6.2 and 6.3 above.
When the item/s have been returned to us we will refund your card for the goods, original delivery charges and the cost of returning the item to us (up to an equivalent of the original carriage costs). You must include a receipt for the return postage. Alternatively, you can choose to have a replacement item (if available). We will review the condition of the goods before issuing a refund or replacement and contact you if the claim is in doubt.
6.5 Cancelling over 14 days of receiving the item/s - Email [email protected] or call us on 01981 241668 you would like to return the goods.
Return of goods, other than for reasons of defect or warranty failure as detailed above, is at our discretion.
If we choose to accept a return under these circumstances, we will confirm this by email to you. We will ask that you return the item within 7 days of our request for you to so and to include paperwork as per items 6.2 and 6.3 above. Please Note. Because our orders are sometimes supplied direct by a manufacturer, there are occasions when we incur administration and handling fees for some returns over a particular time from delivery, typically after 14-21 days but dependent on the item, up to 30% of the original order value may be charged by them. Should we incur any such charges, we reserve the right to pass this on to the customer.
Assuming the returned item is suitable for resale, we will refund your card less the original carriage charge plus any collection costs, any applicable handling fees as above and business transaction costs; alternatively you can choose to receive a replacement item equivalent to the refund value.
We will review the condition of goods before issuing a refund or replacement and will contact you if the claim is in doubt.
