Can I return my purchase?

We believe that you will be delighted with your product but there may be occasions where you feel it necessary to return an item. 

Faulty Products

We try to select and package the Products as well as possible to ensure they arrive in good condition. However, if a Product arrives damaged or with defects, or is not what you Ordered, we will replace it free of charge or provide a full refund as appropriate, if you return the Product to us at within 14 days of receipt.

In these circumstances we will also pay you the cost of the return. Please obtain a proof of return to enable us to process the refund for your return costs.

For help with items later than 14 days after your initial purchase please email us for more information.
