The products must be returned to us unused, as new, and in undamaged condition. We advise you to return goods in their original product packaging, and where appropriate with all shrink wrapping and banding around the pallet or crate still intact in order to protect them in transit to us. In addition returns or cancellations will not be accepted if the product(s) have been altered by applying chemicals or paints to the surfaces other than those provided or by altering or customising the product in any way that could be deemed as you using or treating the products as your own.

What Happens once goods have been returned?

  • Following return and inspection your refund will be processed.
  • Refunds will be subject to collection costs if we have arranged this on your behalf.
  • Where you are dealing as business refunds are subject to a 25% restocking fee.
  • Please note in the unlikely event that you have received defective goods from us ( verified and confirmed before return) no return fee or restocking will be charged.

Cooling off period

These rights apply to the extent that you have purchased the product as a consumer.(A person who purchases for their own use, rather than a business) You may return any delivered product(s) you have purchased within 14 calendar days after the day of delivery for any reason (including if you simply change your mind). However if you have ordered a made to order, built to order or customised product a manufacturing fee of 100% of the contract value is applicable and no refund will apply.

Damage should be notified to us via email to support@barriersdirect.co.uk together with digital photographic evidence of the damage to the product or products.
