Returns and Cancellations
The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2014 gives private customers buying from distance or off premises sales the right to:
Cancel an order starting from the moment you place your order and ends 14 days from the day you receive your goods. If your order consists of multiple goods, the 14 day period runs from when you get the last of the batch
This 14 day period is the time you have to decide whether to cancel, you then have a further 14 days to actually send the goods back. You should get a refund within 14 days of us getting the goods back, or you providing evidence of having returned the goods (for example, a proof of postage receipt from the post office), whichever is the sooner.
Refunding the cost of delivery: You will be refunded the basic costs of getting the goods to you in the first place, so if you opted for enhanced service eg guaranteed next day, you will not be refunded the extra cost.
You must pay for the cost of their return back to us and this should be by a tracked method. Please include a copy of the invoice and a reason for return.
There are some circumstances where the Consumer Contracts Regulations won’t give you a right to cancel. A deduction can be made if the value of the goods has been reduced, as a result of you handling the goods more than was necessary. The extent to which you can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop.
