I wish to return an item, what is your policy?
We offer a no-quibble 30 days returns policy. Please email us to request a Returns Authorisation Code to include with your return. Items must be returned to us unused, as received and in a re-saleable condition, with the original tags & packaging attached.
Returns, unless defective, damaged or not as specified on your order confirmation, are returned at your own expense, therefore for your own protection we recommend that you return any items via a trackable delivery service and to obtain a proof of postage. Proof of postage alone is not proof of receipt.
We aim to issue a refund within 2 working days of receiving a return and we will send you an email to confirm when the refund has been issued.
Under the Consumer Rights Directive (CRD), you are entitled to return an order for a full refund, including the original delivery charge of £4.95 – providing you are returning your entire order and you have informed us in writing within 14 working days of receiving it. Please note, we do not cover return postage. Return postage via an appropriate service as stated above is the responsibility of the buyer. If you made the original order using a special delivery service, we’ll refund the standard delivery charge of £4.95 only.
My Order has arrived damaged or the item received is not what I ordered?
In the unlikely event that your order has been received faulty, damaged or not as ordered we will arrange with you to have the item returned or disposed of. If a replacement item is required this will be sent out free of any delivery charge. If an item has arrived damaged please do not dispose of it before contacting us. We will not be able to issue a refund or send out a replacement without photographic evidence of the damaged item.
I would like to return an item for something else?
The replacement item will be sent out to you free of any delivery charges once the original item has been sent back. If the value of the new item is less than that of the one that is being returned we will refund the difference back to the original payment method. If the value is greater, additional payment will be required before the item can be sent out. If you would like to make an exchange please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Am I able to cancel or amend an order once I’ve placed it?
We really hope you won’t want to cancel your order with us but in the unlikely event that you do, please email us at email@example.com. If your order hasn’t yet been dispatched we will be able to cancel it for you, if it has already left you will need to arrange for the item to be returned at your cost in line with our Returns Policy.
