  • As supplier, we provide the following express warranties subject to the following terms and conditions:
    • We will refund or replace the product as the case may be (with us or you deciding and determining the action to be taken according to whether the failure is major or non-major, as stated above) in the circumstances and to the extent required under the Law if the product you receive does not match the sample or description, is substantially unfit for its intended or disclosed purpose or is not of acceptable quality (as defined in the Law), is unsafe, or if the alleged issue with the product is such that a reasonable consumer aware of the issue would not have acquired the product. 
    • Where a refund or replacement is to be provided under the terms of this warranty, we may to the extent permitted under the Law require the return of the product to us before refunding or replacing it.  We will pay for, or reimburse you for, any shipping costs to return the original product to us.
    • Replacement products are subject to the same warranties as the original.
    • You must retain your proof of purchase for any manufacturer warranty claims.
    • Refunds will be issued by direct deposit, cheque, credit to your credit card or PayPal at our discretion.

    • You must notify us within a reasonable time of supply of the goods.

Once contacted we will advise you of the best way to return any products. We may not accept products returned without a Return Authorisation Number.

    • We aim to process refunds and replacements within 28 days of receipt by us of the original product.
