The customer must inspect the products as soon as possible after direct delivery. If there is noticeable damage on a delivery where a signature is required, please sign the delivery "RECEIVED DAMAGED".

Your rights to return goods are protected under the UK Consumer Contracts Regulations.

You are entitled to cancel your order within 14 days and return the goods within a further 14 days for a full refund of goods plus basic cost of delivery. Do this by contacting us by email and quoting the order number supplied to you. Your refund will be paid within 30 days. You are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal insurance to cover their value. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Any goods returned should be in saleable condition.

Please ensure all returns are packed well for a safe return with a covering letter quoting the order number.

For all returns: Return carriage is the responsibility of the buyer. For an order that was sent by carrier and is subsequently refused, any charges from the carrier relating to a "refusal" and the order's return will be deducted from any refund that is due on the material.
