Damaged, Incorrect, or Faulty Goods
If you have a problem with an item that you have ordered, please contact us as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You the customer, are solely responsible for inspecting the product upon delivery. If, in the rare instance, your order is received damaged, faulty or incorrect, please contact us within 48 hours of receipt.
For faulty goods, we will arrange to repair or replace your order, as long as the product has been used as intended and does not, on examination, display any signs of misuse. If faulty, please enclose a letter stating the fault(s) and return the item to us. This does not apply to faults caused by accident, neglect, or misuse, for which there will be no refund or exchange. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Should you need to return a product due to an error on our part, we will exchange or refund the product for you. We will also refund any reasonable associated carriage costs.
Your new awning is covered against faults in both materials and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of purchase. This may vary depending on the manufacturer.
Please note that this guarantee does not cover damage to the awning, its poles, or other components which are caused by the following:
- Stormy or windy conditions
- Accidents or misuse
- General wear and tear
- Incorrect erection
We allow a period of 28 days for you to inspect and check your new awning. If there are any obvious genuine faults, please inform us and the awning may be returned for repair, exchange, or refund within this period. Other less obvious faults, e.g. leaks, may require us to retain the awning for testing or send the item to a third party for inspection. This can often take several weeks.
After this period of time, if you believe your awning to have a genuine manufacturing fault, please contact us in the first instance by telephone, letter, or email. In the event that you subsequently need to return your awning to us, please note:
- Awnings must be accompanied by the original receipt
- Replacement parts are normally in stock but may occasionally take a few weeks to obtain
- In some cases, awnings may need to be erected and assessed, which may take over a week depending on the time of year or weather conditions and workload
- Very occasionally awnings may need to be returned to a third party for repair, assessment, or verification and this may take several weeks
Awnings must be in a dry and clean condition in order to be inspected. If an awning is returned and we find that this is not the case, we have the right to return it to you uninspected or charge you a fee.
