can be a tricky area as every return has a different set of circumstances,
so we look at every return on a case by case basis. Of course
if the item has developed a fault we will meet our obligations
under the Consumer Guarantees Act, but in general if you want
to return a product simply because you have changed your mind,
we cannot take it back.
can't you just on sell the returned goods to someone else?
to say, but it's not a very professional way to conduct business.
As soon as your item is used or opened it is no longer classed
as new, our suppliers do not take back used products which means
we could be left with it in our stock (if we took it back). We
do not sell second hand products and no doubt if you were a customer
you would not want to buy an item that has been used. So please
choose your product carefully before purchasing.
On the off chance that we did decide to take it back, this is our Refunds
are at our discretion and if accepted can be given if the faulty
or non-faulty product is returned within 5 business days of purchase
and the product is in 'condition to resell'. A 25% Restocking
Fee may apply. For faulty products this includes all original
packaging or boxing and any software or manuals that may have
been supplied. For non-faulty products, resalable condition means
the goods have not been used.
Goods will not be accepted back if they are not in 'condition
to resell' or if the purchase is more than 5 business days old.

is your RMA Procedure?
RMA / Returned goods are first checked in our service department
to verify the fault and to determine if the item is still within
its warranty coverage. Then the item is processed on to our supplier
for repair/replacement. We understand that a RMA is an extreme
inconvenience for both parties and will do our best to ensure
your RMA is processed promptly. Please understand that there is
more than one business involved with the RMA process, hence the
estimated time of 5- 14 working days.

valid to that product. The warranty is there for a reason and
