Returns Policy

All items must be returned in an unused (re-saleable) condition, with the returns form and original packaging.  All un-damaged, un-used returned products will be credited to the original credit card used for purchase. 

We strongly recommend you obtain a free 'certificate of posting' from the post office, or use a trackable shipping service, as we cannot accept responsibility for any parcels lost in transit.
