Cooling off period

To do so you must notify us in writing via email to email@example.com or via the postal system. If you are returning a product because you have changed your mind after delivery, you must arrange for return transport of the goods at your own cost. All returned products must be returned unused, as new, and in undamaged condition. We advise you to return goods in their original product packaging with all shrink wrapping and banding around the pallet or crate still intact. The products will be at your risk during return, so please make sure that the items are sufficiently packaged to prevent damage occurring during their return. All items will be checked upon return. We will give a refund of the price paid for the returned product.
Further conditions apply to cancellations due to damage as stated below.
If an item is returned damaged, we will notify you via email or post. If damage has occurred in transit, it is your responsibility to make any claim for damaged items against your carrier. We will not refund the cost of items which are found to be damaged on return to us: such items will remain your property and may be collected from us at your cost. We may dispose of them if not collected within 30 days.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your goods are checked before signing the delivery note. If you have received a pallet or crate that is damaged and have chosen to accept the delivery, it is important that you sign the delivery note as "damaged" and that you notify us of any damage within 48 hours of delivery.
Damage should be notified to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org together with digital photographic evidence of the damage. Evidence of damage may also be submitted by post provided the damage has been notified to us within the first 48 hours of delivery. We will then arrange to collect and replace your item subject to our usual terms and conditions of sale and delivery or offer an alternative remedy. Signing of the delivery note as “unchecked” or similar wording does not relieve you of the obligation to notify us of any damage within the first 48 hours from delivery. We will not accept claims for damaged goods if the carrier has obtained a clean signature or if more than 48 hours after delivery have passed.
Unfortunately, breakages can occasionally happen and we will send out replacements as soon as we can. To help us, we recommend that you open all products and check exactly how many individual units are broken, take photographs of the breakages, then contact us via email to email@example.com.
Damaged Goods-Cancelling the order
In cases where our products are damaged or broken on delivery and you wish to cancel the order as a result, provided damage is reported within 48 hours of delivery as set out above, we will organise collection of the damaged item(s) from you. Until this time, the products remain at your risk and you should take reasonable care of them, including securing, packaging and/or storage of the goods to prevent further damage. Following collection and inspection, provided we are satisfied the goods have been damaged in transit or otherwise before delivery, a full refund will be issued.
Damaged Goods – Replacement Parts
