Returning faulty or incorrectly supplied items
In addition to your right to cancel your order as described below, we will accept returns if:
(a) The product was damaged or faulty: we will arrange for a returns label to be sent to you. Refunds or exchanges will only be given once the product is confirmed as faulty. Once the product has been confirmed as faulty by us we will either replace the product or provide a refund; please inform us which option you prefer. If you require a replacement, we will wait for the damaged / faulty product to be returned before dispatching a new product.
(b) The product was incorrectly supplied: If we made a mistake and sent you the incorrect product, we will arrange for a returns label to be sent to you, or for collection at our discretion. On receipt of the returned product(s) we will give you a full refund or arrange to send you the correct product(s), whichever you would prefer.
Under these circumstances full refunds shall be made no later than 14 days after we have received the returned goods, or 14 days after the day on which you provide evidence that you have returned the goods.
You must take reasonable care of the goods and packaging whilst they are in your possession to ensure that so as far as practicable they are returned in ‘as new’ ‘as delivered’ condition, suitable for resale.

We will refund the full price of the products as soon as possible following your notice of cancellation, and no later than 14 days. Please note that non-standard (Next Day) delivery charges added at the time of your order cannot be refunded, and unless otherwise directed you are responsible for the cost of 'return' postage to us.
