If you do need to return any goods to us, please make sure that they are packaged securely and we strongly recommend they are returned using insured registered delivery as we cannot accept liability for goods lost or damaged in transit. Please retain your post office receipt for proof of postage. This is really important as we can only issue a refund once we have received the goods, in their original condition.

Our return policy does not apply to perishable goods, items which have been personalised or custom made for you or if you have provided incorrect or inaccurate information during the order process. If the goods that we deliver are not what you ordered or are damaged or defective, we will replace the goods.

Goods should be returned within 7 days of delivery, at the customer's expense, in their original packaging and in a re-saleable condition. Any goods with manufacturing faults on arrival will be replaced or refunded including your postage costs. This does not affect your statutory rights.
