After we have acknowledged your request to return the order, please follow these simple steps to make the process as smooth as possible:

The goods should be returned in the condition in which they were received. Should there be any signs of damage, smoke or misuse, we will not be able to refund the goods.

Please retain the packaging for all goods. The goods must be returned in their original undamaged packaging and in a resalable condition to allow a full refund. If we receive goods in an imperfect condition a refund will not be issued.

Once the goods have been received and we have inspected them, we will confirm the refund amount due to you and make the refund payment within 7 days, using your original payment method.
