8. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND This clause 8 only applies if you are a consumer.
8.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 8.2. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
8.2 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Order Acknowledgement (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order as outlined in clause 6.3), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
Your Contract – End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for a single product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days). The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the product. For example: if we provide you with the Order Acknowledgement on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.
Your Contract is for either of the following:
- One Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days.
- Multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the product or the last of the separate products ordered. For example: if we provide you with the Order Acknowledgement on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
8.3 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. Whichever way you decide to notify us of your decision, please ensure that you refer to the Order Number to enable us to trace your order.
You can e-mail us at email@example.com or contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 07863223675.If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
8.4 If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below: (i) if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 8.7; (ii) if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
8.5 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 8 because they are faulty or mis- described, we will refund the price of the Products in full.
8.6 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
8.7 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can either send it back or hand it to our authorised carrier. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 07863223675 to arrange a return. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will collect the Products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
(b) unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8.5), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
(c) bespoke products are non returnable unless faulty
8.8 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 8 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.1 We will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery day once your product has been built
9.2 On the day of delivery you will need to be available between 9am and 5pm to receive your consignment. The consignment MUST be checked for damage before being signed for. If you sign the POD you are signing to say that you ‘have received the goods in good condition’. Once the goods are signed for then any insurance to cover damage in transit is invalidated and we will be unable to collect/replace/repair your products. If in any doubt ring customer services on 07863223675
9.3 If you are not there when the delivery arrives you will be liable for a 75% redelivery charge.

(a) where the product’s correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
(b) if the product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
