Please note: The returned goods are your responsibility until they reach us. For your own protection, we recommend that you send the parcel using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods in event of loss or damage, use of our free returns service does not pass responsibility for loss or damage in transit to us.  The free returns service can take up to 5 working days to arrive at our returns department.

Returns Period and Cancelling Your Order

Under EU legislation, and the Consumer Contracts Regulations, you have the right to cancel your order for items purchased from and delivered to you within the EU, for a refund.

You can return your order for exchange, refund, or credit using the enclosed return form supplied within your delivery.  You must inform us within 14 days of receipt of your goods if you wish to make a return or an exchange.  You can do this either by delivering the goods back to us as per our returns process, or emailing us at to tell us of your intention to make a return or exchange. You can choose either of these options, however we must be informed within the 14 day timeframe, and the goods must then be returned to us within 14 days of your notification to us.  

The above policy applies to all returns, however the ability to excercise your rights in line with the Consumer Contracts Regulations exists solely for EU residents.

If you wish to cancel your order, in line with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, please contact us via email, quoting your order number, stating your wish to cancel your contract and your intention to return all goods to us in original saleable quality. Emails must be sent to and must reach us within 14 days of receipt of the goods.  Goods must then be returned to us within 14 days of the date of your email.

Delivery charges are not refundable unless the goods are faulty or incorrect, and a refund is made for this reason.


Return process


We will process your replacement item at most within 7 days of receiving your parcel, however we usually process most in-stock exchanges within 48 hours.  If you have requested an exchange, sometimes this can take up to 10 working days to process if we need to source your requested item from one of our stores, so please do be patient! If we can't send your requested replacement item, we will refund the amount you paid back to the original method of payments.  We can only exchange an item for stock we currently have available in our stores or online, but we can't put aside stock in advance for en exchange.  If you need an exchange urgently, we recommend placing a new order for the item you need, and returning the unwanted item for a refund.


Credit Notes and Gift Vouchers

If you prefer a credit note rather than a refund or exchange, we will issue this to you via email.  Credit will be valid for a year from issue and will be redeemable on our website only.  We can issue credit notes in GBP only, if you paid for your order in another currency we will process the credit using our in-house exchange rate.  If you paid by Gift Voucher, we will re-issue your gift voucher to you via email if you requested a refund.



We will process a refund at most within 10 working days of receiving your parcel, but usually it will be processed within 48 hours. If you have returned your parcel using Recorded Delivery or another service that can be tracked (like our free return service), please give us the tracking or barcode number if you are enquiring about your return - you can also use this tracking number to check when your returned parcel has arrived with us. Once your refund has been processed, please allow up to 10 working days for the refund to be credited to your account. The amount of time this takes will depend on which bank or card issuer you're with, and we have no control over it. We will credit your refund by the same method you used when you placed your order. If we can't do this (i.e. if the card has been declined, cancelled or has expired), we'll contact you to arrange another form of payment.

If you think you have been refunded the wrong amount please contact quoting your order number and the amount you believe you should be refunded and we’ll deal with it as a priority. Please note the following may affect your refund: delivery charges are only refundable if the goods are faulty and a refund is made. If a discount was applied to your original order, and the refund of a returned item means that the original discount would no longer apply, the amount refunded will be adjusted to reflect this.  If the returned item has been returned in poor condition or is incomplete in any way (missing packaging/trims) we may refuse the refund or make a charge at our discretion for cleaning, replacement or repair.


Returning due to fault or incorrect item received

If any item you received is faulty or damaged, or is incorrect, please contact us straight away on or telephone our customer service team on (+44) 1273 733 869 quoting your order number, your name and address, details of the product and the reason for return, and whether you require a refund or a replacement. We will then advise on how to proceed with the return and assist you through the process to resolve our error as quickly as possible.  You will have 30 days from receipt of the faulty item to return it to us according to our instruction.


Return policy for made to order items

These items are indicated on the product page as being made to order (eg: Storage chests), and as such once delivered to you they are non-returnable.  If you wish to cancel your order before a delivery date has been agreed, please get in touch with us via email ASAP.

This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
