If you would like to cancel your order before we have dispatched it from our distribution centre then please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your order has already left our distribution centre then unfortunately it is not possible to cancel it at this stage. Instead, once your order has arrived simply follow the returns instructions below and when we have received your goods you will be issued with a refund.
You can return goods within 14 days of cancellation of contract.
Please contact our Customer Services Team at email@example.com to request a return code.
Enter this code on the original delivery note.
If we provided an ‘unpack and install’ service when delivering the goods, we will contact you to arrange to collect the goods. The cost of doing this will be £50 per item and this will be deducted from any refund due.
If the goods were delivered packaged, then please repack the items carefully (not necessarily in the original packaging) and arrange for a courier to deliver them to us. It is your responsibility to pay for the return of goods and to ensure that they are adequately insured as a refund will only be issued once the goods have been received into our warehouse in a saleable condition.
The refund of any money received from you will be made using the same method of payment originally used when placing your order and will include the original delivery charge.
UK STANDARD delivery is £50 per item. This will cover delivery to UK mainland addresses. Delivery outside this area will incur an additional charge which we will contact you after placing the order to arrange.
We may be able to offer an “unpack and install” service. We will contact you prior to despatch if we are able to offer this service. If we are unable to do so, we will arrange for delivery of your goods by courier.
You will receive an email confirmation of despatch and expected delivery date and time. The goods must be signed for therefore, please ensure there is somebody at the premises to receive the goods.
If your order is lost in transit, we reserve the right to investigate before we offer to replace or refund.
We accept payment from all major credit and debit cards.
Payment shall be taken on the day your order is placed with us and this will be confirmed to you by e-mail when we e-mail you to confirm your order.
We use Stripe, a payment service provider, to process any credit/debit transactions you may make on our behalf. When you place an order, you will receive an e-mail confirming your payment transaction details. You are responsible for ensuring the e-mail address and other contact details you provide to us are correct.
