We understand that you may wish to return purchased goods to us, in accordance with the distance selling regulations currently in force our terms and conditions will be as follows.
Items Ordered Wrong / No Longer Required:
Goods returned for a refund, which were ordered wrong or no longer required, must be returned within 30 days from delivery of the goods in the original state supplied, un-used, and un-cut. Returned items in these circumstances will be at your own cost.
Please package items you wish to return appropriately.
For example, if you have ordered door handles which turn out not to be suitable, please package them as they were sent to you. For example, handles returned loose in a box will get scratched. This means we are unable to re-sell these handles, therefore unable to refund your purchase.
Goods that are deemed faulty through no fault of your own will be due a full refund including return postage costs on your part once we have inspected the goods and accepted that the goods are in-deed faulty.
Please note: return postage costs include standard postal returns and recorded delivery charges that are the appropriate for the size/weight of product. Excessive returns charges for example special delivery, guaranteed or timed delivery charges are deemed to be unduly excessive unless agreed in writing between the company and the customer beforehand.
The company reserves the right to not refund for the excessive charges as stated above or only refund the difference at its own discretion. The company does agree to pay in full standard postal charges and recorded delivery charges if items are agreed faulty through no fault of the customer within the terms and conditions.
Returns do not need to be sent back special delivery as this adds un-due cost to your return. Dependant on the package we are happy to receive packages returned as:
- Recorded delivery
- Tracked and or signed for via Royal Mail or Couriers
- The additional charges for special delivery or timed delivery will not be covered under our postage returns costs
If you have ordered a long item such as a multipoint lock mechanism then you will need to use a parcel broker to send parts like this back to us, this is because the item will be too long for Royal Mail handle. We recommend Interparcel or Parcel2Go.
The above parcel brokers will allow you to easily arrange for a courier to collect the part from your home or workplace and return it back to us. Given the choice of courier we would choose TNT.
Special Order Items:
Special order items must be paid for in full prior to the seller ordering the goods and are not returnable under any circumstance except where deemed faulty.
