If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has changed their mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for goods not provided but we may deduct from that refund reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract and we will also charge a £5.95 carriage fee which will be deducted from the refund amount if we have already dispatched the goods by the time you contact us to confirm that you wish to end the contract.

If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 8.4.1 to 8.4.4 (below), the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any goods which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
8.4.1 - we have told you about an upcoming change to the goods or these terms which you do not agree to;
8.4.2 - we have told you about an error in the price or description of the goods you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;

However, we offer a No Quibble Returns Policy which is more generous than the statutory cancellation right outlined above and contained in the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. Further details of our No Quibble Returns Policy can be found at clause 9 (below). Nonetheless, as a consumer, you have statutory rights in relation the goods and those rights are not affected by our No Quibble Returns Policy.

In this case, you have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.
9.3 - The No Quibbles Return Policy outlined at clause 9.1 does not apply in respect of any goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.

9.4.1 - if we agree the goods are faulty or mis-described;

9.4.3 - if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the goods or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong,
in all other cases, you must pay a £5.95 carriage fee which will be deducted from the refund amount.
9.5 - How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the goods (subject to any deductions made pursuant to these terms) by the method you used for payment. We will make refunds due to you within 14 days of the day on which we collect the goods from you.
9.6 - When we may make deduction from refunds. We may reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
9.7 - All returned or exchanged items must be in a re-saleable condition i.e. undamaged, unused, in their original and undamaged packaging. This is unless the item you received is faulty.
