Returns

If for some reason you are not happy with your product you can return it to us for a refund or exchange. More information on how to do this can be found on our Returns Information Page.

In order to qualify for a refund, you must return your item within 30 days of receiving your parcel, having taken good care of it and kept it in an unused state, complete with packaging and all its components. See the Returns Page for details on how to return your item. The refund will be made direct to the credit/charge card originally used to place the order. The refund will be issued within a few days of us receiving your item and once issued it will usually take 3-5 working days to show in your account.

Please be aware that you are responsible for the returned item until it has reached us. We recommend using a secure delivery method which requires tracking or a signature upon receipt.

We reserve the right to refuse any returns that do not meet our returns criteria (for example worn items or items returned without original packaging). If a return item cannot be accepted by us, we will contact you to arrange the shipping back to your address, we cannot issue refunds for items which are refused due to a breach of our return’s terms. Any refused returns items that cannot be accepted to your address will be disposed of by us after 30 days of storage.

If you return the wrong item to us, we will endeavour to locate the parcel and return it, however on some occasions this is not possible. Please note we cannot accept liability for any returns deliveries that were not intended for us and we will not be able to compensate for the loss of these items. Any items incorrectly delivered to us that cannot be returned will be disposed of after 30 days storage.

Gift with Purchase return

You have 30 days from the date on which the goods were received to return any item for a refund.

Some of our products come with a Gift with Purchase (GWP). If your item is not suitable and you wish to return this to us for a full refund, we kindly request your gift with purchase is returned to us also. If your item is received without the GWP the price will be deducted from your refund.

Faulty Products

Our products are packaged to ensure they arrive to you in good condition. However very occasionally items will arrive damaged or with defects. If this does occur then please see the Returns Page for details on how to return your item. Please always contact us before sending any faulty products back as we cannot cover the cost of postage if an item is deemed to not be faulty.

Once we have received and inspected the returned item, we will replace the item free of charge. Should a refund be requested, then the refund will be made as soon as the item has been returned.

In these circumstances, we will also pay you the cost of the return postage. In cases where it has not been possible for us to issue a free returns postage label, please obtain a proof of posting certificate from your Post Office to enable us to process the refund for your return postage costs.

This does not affect your Statutory Rights.

Cancellations

We try to complete all cancellation requests before the time of the order’s dispatch, although we cannot guarantee a successful cancellation.

For the best chance of completing your cancellation quickly, please add "Cancellation" in the subject line of your email to us and ensure all order details, including order number, are included within the message.

Once items have been dispatched, we are often unable to cancel. If this is the case, we would recommend refusing the item when delivery is attempted or returning the item to us once delivered.

We reserve the right to cancel any order without notice which are subject to pricing errors, stock issues or quality control issues.

Delivery

You will normally receive three emails from us. The first email is your confirmation of order. This is confirmation that we have received your order. It is not confirmation that the order you have placed is guaranteed to be in stock or that it can be fulfilled. Sometimes errors do occur in our stock inventory or other customers order just before you. We cannot be liable or responsible for any loss occurring because your items are not in stock. We will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible if this is the case. The 2nd email you get from us is your email receipt and means that your order has been processed, your item(s) are in stock. The 3rd email will tell you that your order is being shipped.

We will make every effort to deliver your order within the time estimate (the estimate is in working days unless otherwise stated) provided on our website. However, this is an estimate, and delivery within the time quoted cannot be guaranteed. If the goods are not delivered within the time we have estimated, please feel free to contact us by telephone (01243 674830) or email and we will try to resolve the issue promptly.

We will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery over the estimated provided.

Please refer to the Delivery section for further information.

Non Delivery

It is the buyer's responsibility to notify us if the goods have not been received within 21 days of the estimated delivery date or receipt of our invoice.

If no notification is made within this time period the buyer shall be deemed to have received the goods.

Duty/Import/General Sale Tax on International Delivery

For countries outside the EU there may be taxes and fees or other charges that you may be liable for. Please check with your local customs office before the order is placed as these charges vary from country to country and we do not have a control over these charges.

If local import and custom charges are refused or not paid by you, then the item could be returned to us or possibly even destroyed. If your order is not returned to us we may not be able to refund you for your order. We would not be able to refund any original postage costs paid and can only refund for the returned products minus any costs incurred in returning them to us.

Promotional Offers

Some of our products offer a "Free Item" along side ordering a product. This "Free Item" is subject to availability, and ordering the said product does not guarantee the customer the "Free Item". Should the product ordered, with the attached free item, be requested for return or exchange, the "Free Item" will also be requested for return. A "Free Item" will not be sent if an order is made in conjunction with any other offer, including Price Promises.
