Exchanges/Returns/Cancellations

 

Cancellations

Pre-Dispatch cancellation requests for individual stock lines can be accepted over the telephone, and by email. Such cancellations do not become effective until you receive a returns confirmation email from our Customer Service which will be sent to the email address registered on your account. Please note that if the item is already within the delivery process, e.g. goods are being picked and shipped from the warehouse, then cancellation cannot be effected and returns procedure must be used after the goods have arrived.

 

If there is a problem with any of the items that you have received please contact us immediately, time is of the essence as we only have a very narrow window in which to effect returns or make claims.
