If your order consists of multiple items or parts which are delivered on different days, then the cancellation period (in respect of your whole order) ends on the day 28 days after the day on which the last of the items or parts are delivered to you (or a person you have nominated to receive the order).

Any returns are at your own risk. For your protection, We recommend that you return your items either by courier or by tracked post.

You must pay for any return delivery costs, except where the wrong item has been sent to you or the item is defective. Where an item cannot, by its nature, be returned by post (for example an exercise bike) we charge a collection fee.

The items need to be in the original packaging where it forms part of the goods (for example, boxed goods, garments and gift items). Where an item has a return policy swing ticket attached, it must still be attached and undamaged upon return. 

You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the items while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, We may have a right of action against you for compensation. This applies to all items that are returned.

Refunds

We will refund you (or will arrange a refund on our behalf) in full for any items you return but will deduct from any reimbursement an amount equal to any diminishment in value of the items as a result of you handling the items beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the items.

If you are returning all items in your order, we will also refund the cost of the initial delivery to you, but only up to the cost of the standard delivery charge. We will not refund any Next Day, Express, Saturday or other premium component of any delivery charge. If you are not returning all the items in your order, the initial delivery cost will not be refunded to you.

You will be refunded using the same payment method originally used to purchase the returned item(s) (unless you have expressly agreed otherwise). If you cannot be refunded using the original payment method then a cheque will be raised to the address on the order. You will be refunded no later than 14 days after the day we receive the items you are returning.

Once a refund has been issued you will receive a confirmation email detailing the amount which has been refunded and the item(s) we received back.

Returning items that have been sent out incorrectly

Please return to the Returns Address and clearly state the reason for return is that it has been sent out incorrectly and whether you require a refund or exchange. We are only able to exchange items for the same product.

Defective items

Tier 1: within 30 days of receiving the defective item, you can choose to receive either:

  1. a repair; or 
  2. a replacement; or
  3. a full refund.

The Tier 1 right to reject, for perishable goods that would not be expected to last for 30 days, lasts only as long as such perishable goods would reasonably be expected to last.

Tier 2: if more than 30 days have passed after you received the goods, you can claim a repair or a replacement of the defective item (but not a refund).

Tier 3 if the repair or replacement is not possible, or if it is unsuccessful or cannot be provided to you in a reasonable time, then you can choose to either:

  1. keep the defective item and claim a price reduction (the amount of the price reduction will be determined by us depending on what is reasonable in the circumstances); or
  2. return the defective item and claim a refund (but note that if you have had the goods for more than 6 months, this refund may be reduced to take account of any use you have had from the goods).

If you think you have received a defective item, please return the items back to us including details where possible of:

  • Your Order Number
  • Product Code/Product Name
  • Details of the fault
  • Whether you would prefer a refund or a repair or replacement
