Returns & Refunds PolicyUpdated 5 months ago

We want you to be happy with the products you choose from us but we understand that sometimes things aren't right and you may decide you want to return something. We offer a 14- calendar day returns policy, effective from the day your order is delivered, to give you complete peace of mind.

When returning an item, all we ask is that the item is unused and in the original condition you received it in. This includes all labels and tags being attached & intact as well as all original packaging. If your returned item does not meet our returns criteria or partially meets our returns criteria, we will get in touch with you. If you have any concerns about the condition of your items before returning them to us, please contact us first to discuss this. 

Unfortunately, we cannot offer returns after the 14-day period unless the item is faulty.

Our returns policy is in addition to the consumer rights act 2015.

Returns FAQ's

Below are some commonly asked questions regarding our return policy:

Can I return an unwanted item?

If you have ordered and received an item that you no longer require, you have 14 calendar days to notify us that you wish to return it. You then have a further 14 calendar days to ensure the returned item is received by us. It is important that any items you return are in perfect condition with their undamaged original packaging in order to receive a refund.

How do I return something?

Before sending your goods back to us, we need to create a 'returns authorisation' for your order. Please contact us by emailing us directly at [email protected] including your order number and the items you wish to return.

Who covers the cost of returning an unwanted or faulty item?

Should you wish to return an item to us due to no longer wanting it, any costs incurred are your responsibility. It is essential that any items returned are sent on a tracked service. We cannot accept responsibility for items where proof of delivery cannot be provided. You can also request us to arrange a collection of the unwanted item, any costs incurred will be deducted from the final refund amount.

In the unlikely event that you receive your items and discover that they are faulty, we will endeavour to offer replacement parts or replace components with new stock items. If you wish to return the items then of course we will arrange for the goods to be collected for a full refund.

Where do I return my items to?

The return address for unwanted items can be found on the 'returns authorisation' that we will send you once you have contacted us about your desire to return items.

How long will my refund take?

As soon as your returned items are received at our warehouse, we allow 5-7 working days to inspect returned items for any faults or damages.

Once our warehouse confirms that the items are in perfect condition and in undamaged original packaging, a refund will be processed to the original payment method used when the order was placed (i.e. credit card, debit card, or Finance option)

Although we action refunds immediately, depending on your bank/finance provider, it may take up to 7 working days to show in your account.

Please ensure you mark your return parcel clearly with the 'returns authorisation number' provided on the 'returns authorisation' as your refund can take significantly longer to be processed without this information on the parcel.
