Therefore, please ensure you do not damage the items or the packaging, and if you wish to return any items, that it reaches us in perfect condition.

We will verify the the products have been returned in the condition in which they were delivered and within the packaging the item was sent to you.

Where reasonable care of the goods has not been taken, whether whilst in your possession or when returning them, or goods are returned not in their original packaging, we reserve the right to refund you in full, less any amount due by way of compensation, to either repair the goods or to recover any loss.

In the event that substantial damage has been caused then we reserve the right to refuse a refund or exchange. We do not accept liability for any goods that do not reach us nor can we accept liability for any goods that may be returned to us by mistake. It is therefore advised that any goods you may wish to return are done so via a recorded delivery service and proof of charge is retained.

We will notify you by email  if no refund or a refunded amount is available. In either case you will then have 14 days to decide if you would like your goods returned to you. The carriage charge to have your goods returned to you must be paid for by yourself.
