Then suitably pack all items in their original packaging complete with all accessories and documentation, remembering to include the "Return Shipping Authorization" label you obtained during the RMA procedure. Clearly mark on the outside of the parcel your RMA number. Items returned without an RMA number clearly shown on the outside of the parcel will be refused.
- Apply the courier's label that we email you to the outside of the parcel and then be at the collection address on the day of the courier's scheduled collection.
- Arrange yourself to return the parcel via a trackable service as we cannot be held responsible for parcels lost in transit to the address we email you.
We recommend that you arrange to return the parcel yourself but if you need us to, we can arrange to collect a parcel within the UK. Please mention when completing the RMA form that you would like us to collect the parcel.
If we arrange collection and the items are being returned due to "Faulty Product" or "Products Damaged On Arrival" and the goods are found not to be faulty/damaged or you are returning due to the "Item not Required", you will be charged the collection cost.
If you arrange collection and the items are being returned due to "Faulty Product " or "Products Damaged On Arrival" and the goods are found to be faulty/damaged or you are returning due to the "Wrong Item Delivered" or "Extra Items Delivered", we will reimburse your reasonable return carriage costs.
If you are eligible for a refund, we will refund you back to the payment method you used when you originally paid for your order. Please note: It is your responsibility to notify us of any changes to your card details i.e. you no longer have that account. Refunds can take up to 30 days to process.
Returning a gift: We are happy to exchange faulty products that have been sent as a gift. If a refund is required however, please note that refunds of the purchase price for items bought as gifts can only be given to the original purchaser.
