Signing for Goods:
Upon delivery of goods please check them carefully for signs of possible damage before you sign to say that you have received them in good condition. We know that's not always possible so you can write 'unchecked' before you sign if you think have concerns.

If you receive a parcel, which is obviously damaged beyond all levels of acceptability, please REFUSE delivery. 

Returns Policy:

Of course you can!

Unfortunately we are unable to cover the cost of return postage at present.  It will come as we grow, but for now it's a cost any small business would struggle to bear.

We ask you return any goods within 28 days, unused and intact with original product packaging and all original tags still attached so they can find a new home. We also ask you return any damaged goods for our inspection prior to refund.

For your peace of mind we would recommend sending recorded or signed for delivery and/or obtaining proof of postage.  

Please give us a call on 01422 846448 or message us  if you have any questions or problems with a delivery, or with any product you have received.  We'll be more than happy to help.  

Refunds for cancellations and/or returns will be processed in the same form of payment originally used.
