Refunds & Returns

Returning Your Order

We do hope that you will be pleased with your new purchase. However, if you change your mind when you receive the goods and wish to return them, we would be happy to take them back within 28 days of you receiving the goods, as long as goods are in a fully saleable condition, with all packaging.

We appreciate that you may want to check the items to ensure that they meet your full approval. In doing so however, we would like to point out that you have a 'duty of care' to look after the items. Please take care not to damage the goods (or packaging where it forms part of the goods), whilst you inspect them.

Please note that goods are returned at your expense, and the original delivery charge is non-refundable. We strongly recommend that you use a signed for service as proof of postage cannot be taken as proof of receipt.

 

Collection of goods to be returned

We can organise a collection for the goods on your behalf if you wish, but if you have changed your mind and no longer want the items, you will be required to cover the cost of this collection.   

Collection charges by us will vary according to the product, but the charges are as follows :-

  • Non-furniture product : the actual collection charge, or £10, whichever is higher
  • Furniture products : the actual collection charge, or £50, whichever is higher. 

Please rest assured that for all items you receive that are faulty or damaged, we will cover the cost of the return. 

Please be aware that if the items are returned in a poor or damaged condition, we do have the right to seek compensation to either repair the goods or cover any loss.

Recycling electrical and electronic products - what you need to know.

With effect from July 2007, the UK's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all retailers both actively assist in delivering a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage their customers to participate in recycling.

This is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the UK and the WEEE Directive aims to minimise the amount of WEEE households throw out with their general rubbish. By keeping WEEE separate from other waste it can be treated, the hazardous substances can be removed and a large amount of waste can be recycled rather than sent to landfill. We all have a part to play in protecting our environment for future generations.

To assist customers in remembering that electronic goods can be recycled all Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) of this type is now marked with a crossed out wheelie bin symbol.

As a distributor of EEE Oldrid & Co., must facilitate the take-back of household WEEE from UK consumers so when you purchase replacement electrical items from our store, as part of our service we are happy to dispose of your equivalent old item for you. Simply return your old item to your nearest store where we will be happy to ensure it is disposed of correctly.

If your old piece of electronic equipment is still in a good working condition or could be repaired for further use, please consider donating it to a charitable organisation or by giving it to someone else in need. By extending the lifetime of your old equipment you are also contributing to the efficient use of resources and avoiding additional waste. You can find your nearest recycling points and helpful recycling tips for electrical goods by visiting www.recycle-more.co.uk.

Proof of purchase of new electrical item is required.
Terms and conditions apply.
