Refunds & Returns
Our Returns Policy forms part of, and must be read in conjunction with, our Terms and Conditions of Sale. We reserve the right to change this Returns Policy at any time. This Returns Policy was last updated on 18/12/2015
It is important that you check your order or items upon receipt and always before use. If any errors occur or issues arise then these need to be reported to us immediately so we can investigate.
Before attempting to return an order you will need to contact our customer service team to request a return.
YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS
Our Returns Policy does not affect your statutory rights.
For more information about your other statutory rights, please visit the UK Government's website at: www.direct.gov.uk or contact Consumer Direct, the Government funded consumer advice service on 08454 04 05 06.
RIGHT TO CANCEL
You have the right to cancel this contract within 30 days without giving reason.
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
If you need to return an item, please Contact Us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order.
RETURNING YOUR ITEM
You may return most new, unopened items for a full refund. You will need to obtain a proof of postage receipt when you send your item to us. Proof of postage does not cost anything but without it we may not be able to process your refund or replacement in the rare event that your item is lost in transit. If you request a replacement and the product is no longer available, we will process a refund back to the original account used to purchase the item.
Any item you have accepted and then returned is your responsibility until it reaches our warehouse. Please therefore ensure that you send your item back to us using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods.
If we do not resolve your complaint internally to your satisfaction, you can refer it to your local Citizens Advice or an alternative complaints body (such as The Retail Ombudsman (www.theretailombudsman.org.uk)) which is competent to deal with consumer complaints, should you wish to use such a scheme. Please note, whilst Trepadora is prepared to engage with The Retail Ombudsman, we will not be bound by any recommendation which The Retail Ombudsman may make.
WILL YOU REFUND MY POSTAGE COSTS TO A RETURN ITEM?
We are more than happy to refund postage costs to return an item where the return is required due to our error. For instance:
- If we sent you the wrong item
- If the item is damaged or faulty
- Where you are returning a substitute item which you do not want to keep
We will not refund postage costs to return items which are unwanted or no longer required. These costs will need to be covered by you, again we recommend using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods.
We will not refund postage costs to return any item due to reported damage or fault where no error was found in the testing process. Costs of posting the item back to you will depend on the item and will be communicated to you after the testing process has been completed.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I RECEIVE AN INCORRECT ITEM?
We have high standards when it comes to packaging your order however mistakes, do occur from time to time. Please accept our apologies if you have received an incorrect item. As part of our customer objectives, we will do our upmost to resolve your query with speed, ease and with absolute minimal inconvenience.
We will review each case individually when considering the return of the product; in some cases we may require further information such as pictures so we can choose the best course of action. Our aim is to provide the best solution for you as quickly as possible.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY ITEM IS DAMAGED
Although we take care to prevent any damage to your goods during transit it is possible that problems may arise. Please accept our apologies if you have received a damaged item.
We ask that you do not refuse delivery, instead accept the goods and contact us immediately. Refusal may actually result in a delay of the parcel being returned.
You can contact us through your account using the online message centre or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach any pictures you have of the damage to the message. A member of our team will review the details and offer the best resolution to resolve your query.
HOW DO I REPORT A FAULT WITH MY PRODUCT?
