As stated in our returns policy, we have to test returned items and if a returned item is found not to be faulty by our technicians we will return the item to you, in this instance you will be liable for the return carriage.
Items Faulty in Warranty Period
If any of your purchases develop a fault, and it is reported more than 7 working days since receipt, then provided your item is within its warranty period, you are entitled to a warranty repair. In some cases, manufacturers provide a specialist full on-site service and/or telephone help facilities for your convenience which we recommend you use in order to correct the fault quickly.
Open-Box Items (Used)
Please note that our open-box (used) stock is sold with 90 calendar days warranty only, and therefore any claims under the warranty after 90 days of receipt will not be accepted.

Returns Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q. I have tried to raise a request but i have been asked to call someone else. Why is this?
A. In certain cases, manufacturers provide support direct to end users. They do this for many reasons, the main one is that they would like to ensure that their customers receive the best possible support on their products. If we refer you to a manufacturer your RMA will invariably be dealt with a lot quicker.
Q. What is the best way for me to return my items to you?
A. We always advise our customers to use some form of delivery that requires a signature on delivery. As a guide, the majority of items are returned to us using Royal Mail Special or Recorded Delivery as the service is usually easily accessible.
Q. I sent my item back to you but I did not put the Returns number on the outside of the package as you requested, will this cause a problem processing my return?
A. If there is no Returns Merchandise Authorisation number (“RMA”) on the outside of the package then there is a good chance that this will lead to delays of up to 30 days in processing your return.
Q. I have received an incorrect item, what should I do?
A. Usually, such a mistake is flagged on our system so we may have the incorrect item(s) already on standby whilst we receive the incorrect items sent out to you. In such an event, please call our sales telephone line on 01922 491 350 to speak to one of our staff about the incorrect item that was received. Please have your invoice number at hand as it will be needed when requested by our sales staff. You will then be instructed of our returns procedure. The correct item will then be dispatched as soon as we have received the incorrect item.
