Who will deliver my order?

We use a number of internationally recognised carriers. If it is easier for you, then we can have your order delivered to a different address than the cardholder's. Once your order has been despatched we will notify you by e-mail. In the event of no one being at the address to take receipt of the delivery, the carrier will leave a card to inform you how to re-arrange delivery or to collect from your local post office. At this point it becomes your responsibility to arrange delivery or collection of your order.

 

Returns

If any items you receive are incorrect, damaged or faulty, then please return them to us for a refund or replacement, and we also refund any postage costs you may incur. Otherwise, product returns are made at your own expense. Please note that we advise using a recorded delivery service in both cases.

If you wish to return your purchase you are fully entitled to do so. A product refund or exchange can be issued up to 14 days from the receipt of goods. The returned products must be new, in perfect condition and complete with original packaging. Used or customer damaged items cannot be refunded or exchanged.
