Products are delivered to the address specified by the customer on the purchase order and only to geographic zones that we service.

No exchanges can be made at a later time for goods claiming to be damaged during carriage without notification at the time of reception.

As with any shipment, a delay or loss of goods is possible. In such a case, the carrier shall start an investigation. Every effort is made, for as long as necessary, to find the package. If the package is not found, the carrier will reimburse THE MERCHANT, who will deliver a new, identical package to the customer free of charge.

We shall not be held responsible for delayed delivery times due to the carrier, including for the loss of goods, bad weather or strikes.

THE MERCHANT will not be responsible for damage or loss of goods or part thereof in transit or for any discrepancy between the goods delivered and the goods ordered unless the customer gives written or email notice of a claim to THE MERCHANT and the carrier within three (3) business days of delivery.

In the event of damage of goods or part thereof in transit or for any discrepancy between the goods delivered and the goods ordered, the customer must hold the goods and make them available for inspection or collection by THE MERCHANT or its representatives on request.

We may make a deduction from the refund for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. We will make the refund no later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you the goods supplied.

If the goods are returned after the 14 day period due to a fault, they will be tested in our workshops. If no fault is found with the item this will be returned to you as promptly as possible. Items that are returned as faulty where no fault is found after testing, and are subsequently not required by the customer will be subject to a 25% handling charge of the original sale price.

Force Majeure
