RETURNING AN ITEM:

Please note:  we do not do refunds.


However, if you are unhappy with our product we will carefully consider each case and in the case of a positive call for a return we ask the following. You as the customer are responsible for the payment of R100.00 per way for postage/shipping for returns (package size dependant) (round trip – outgoing and incoming) which will be invoiced to you and payment will need to be made beforehand.
 

Please read these instructions on how to return an item;
 

  • The goods must be in their original packaging - unopened and undamaged - and the goods need to be packaged appropriately for transport (i.e.  enough protective wrapping to ensure the product won't get damaged during transport). If we receive a damaged product (that left your hands  undamaged) we unfortunately cannot refund you. 

  • All items must be returned in the condition that you received it, with all tags still attached and box packaging included where applicable. 

  • The item must be unassembled and unused and in saleable condition.

  • We will send our courier to collect the item from you on a date which is prior arranged and confirmed to be suitable for you.

  • Once we receive your package and it is in a sellable condition, we will refund you with pleasure.

  • You will receive an email confirming that we have received your return and that you have been credited.
