Before accepting a delivery, it is your responsibility to ensure that you’ve checked the goods for signs of damage. In the unlikely event that you have received a damaged product, pallet or crate and have chosen to accept the delivery, you should sign the delivery note as “damaged” and notify us of any damage within 7 days of delivery by emailing [email protected]
For damaged goods reported correctly, we can either provide a replacement part (see next section below), offer a full replacement product or give a full refund. Refunds and replacement products will be issued subject to inspection by our team upon collection of the product from you. We will organise collection from you, but until the product is collected it is your responsibility to take reasonable care of them, including securing, packaging and/or storage of the products 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 or replacement product will be issued.
Please note, replacement products and parts can vary, as explained in our terms and conditions, products may not be identical to the items being replaced, in particular, colours and shades can vary by batch.
Replacement Part for Damaged Product(s)
In some instances, damage to a product can be resolved by replacing a damaged part – as opposed to replacing the whole unit. Providing damage is reported following the policy set out in the damaged product(s) section above, we will send out a replacement part free of charge.
Please note, replacement products and parts can vary. As explained in our terms and conditions, products may not be identical to the items being replaced, in particular, colours and shades can vary by batch.
Where you believe you’ve received a product that may be faulty, you’ll need to email [email protected] within 7 days of delivery detailing the fault (including photos of the issue), your order information and contact details.
We will then either arrange to send out a replacement part, or organise collection of the faulty product followed by delivering a replacement for the faulty product. For products being collected, please ensure all product packaging and shrink wrapping is intact. Faulty products will be inspected upon return before the replacement product is issued. Replacement parts / products will be issued free of charge. If we collect a faulty product from you and find it not to be faulty, we may charge the costs of returning the goods, or deduct it from any refund.
Should you wish to cancel your order based on the product being faulty, please refer to change of mind returns section above.
If the product(s) delivered are not what you ordered, or do not match the description on your order, please email [email protected] immediately and we’ll work with you to resolve the problem.
When your products are being delivered, it is your responsibility to check against the carrier’s delivery note that all the appropriate number of packages, parcels or crates have been delivered. Any shortages should be added to the delivery note and emailed to [email protected] within 7 days of delivery. Missing products reported within 7 days will be reissued free of charge.
As set out above, you have 7 days to report a missing/incorrect/damaged/faulty product, or 30 days to cancel your order and request a return for any other reason. If we have not heard from you within these timescales, it will be assumed that acceptance of the goods has taken place.
