Further conditions apply to cancellations due to damage as previously stated.
If an item is returned damaged, we will notify you via email or post. If damage has occurred in transit, it is your responsibility to make any claim for damaged items against your carrier. We will not refund the cost of items which are found to be damaged on return to us: such items will remain your property and may be collected from us at your cost. We may dispose of them if not collected within 30 days.
Products that are damaged or broken on arrival (cancelling the order)
In cases where our products are damaged or broken on delivery and you wish to cancel the order as a result, you may do so within a reasonable time frame. We will organise collection of the damaged item(s) from you. Until this time, the products remain at your risk and you should take reasonable care of them, including securing, packaging and/or storage of the goods to prevent further damage. Following collection and inspection, provided we are satisfied the goods have been damaged in transit or otherwise before delivery, a full refund will be issued.
Damaged or broken on arrival (replacement parts or items)
In cases where our products are damaged or broken on delivery and you wish to have a replacement or parts sent, provided damage is reported within a reasonable time frame from date or delivery as set out above, we will use reasonable endeavours to provide suitable replacement products or parts. In this case, we will advise you of a date for the collection of the damaged or broken items and subject to return and inspection of the items, we will then issue a replacement within our normal delivery schedule. All returned products must be returned in the condition in which they were received by you, and you are responsible for ensuring that the items are sufficiently packaged to prevent further damage occurring during their return. All items will be checked upon return before the relevant action is taken. The products remain at your risk until collected by ourselves. Please note replacement parts or products can vary, as explained in our terms and conditions of Sale, so may not be identical to the items being replaced. In particular, colours and shades can vary by batch and could be different from your original order.
Item received is not what you ordered
If the products delivered to you are not what you ordered, or do not correspond fully with the itemised description on your order and you wish to discuss this please notify us immediately via email to email@example.com. Please also refer to our terms and conditions of Sale. We aim to respond to emails within one working day of receipt.
Item is faulty on delivery
Where you believe any product may be faulty, you must notify us within a reasonable time frame from date of delivery. You may do this by contacting us via email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then arrange for a replacement or refund as required. In both instances we will arrange to collect the products and inspect them. If the products are found to be faulty we will arrange for a replacement to be sent or to refund you the cost of your purchase. If you require a refund and the products are found upon inspection not to be faulty, we will refund you the purchase price less the cost of collecting the products.
All returned products must be returned unused, as new, and we advise that they are returned in the original product packaging with all shrink wrapping. The products will remain at your risk until they are physically returned to us by collection or delivery, so please make sure that the items are sufficiently packaged to prevent damage occurring during their return. All items will be checked upon return before the relevant action is taken.
If we have not received notification of any return due to change of mind within 14 days from date of delivery it will be assumed that acceptance of the goods has taken place. Any subsequent claim will be subject to our discretion, and we reserve the right to choose whether to make a full refund.
For goods which are deemed to be faulty or damaged, then we expect this claim to be made within a reasonable time frame from date of delivery. If goods are claimed to be faulty and are found not to be faulty on inspection, we may charge the costs of returning the goods to us at our discretion, or deduct it from any refund. The products will remain at your risk until they are physically returned to us by collection or delivery.
Goods missing on delivery
It is your responsibility to check against the carrier’s delivery note that the appropriate number of packages, parcels, pallets or crates has been received, and that the correct number and description of ordered goods or items has been received. You must notify us within a reasonable time frame via email to email@example.com of any shortages. Once an item has been installed, it cannot be returned and the purchase price cannot be refunded.
General return information
Returns or cancellations will not be accepted if the product(s) have been altered by applying chemicals or paints to the surfaces other than those provided, or by altering or customising the product in any way that could be deemed as you using or treating the products as your own.
Refunds will be processed within 3 working days and all payments will be credited against the original card holder’s payment details where possible.
