Orders Lost In Transit
Should you report an item as having not being received, we reserve the right to re-send the original order rather than issue a refund.
If for any reason we cannot replace the order in full we will offer you a full or partial refund.
Errors With Orders
Although every care is taken to ensure absolute accuracy on the shipments we send out to you, there may be rare occasions where an error could have occurred at the time of dispatch or even in transit. In this circumstance you are required to notify us within 3 days of receipt of the delivery and we will do our best to resolve the problem straight away. Should we not hear from you within 3 working days of the deliveries receipt you are deemed to have accepted that the goods received are all correct and in order.
This clause is necessary as in many cases if acted on quickly mistakes with transit can be rectified if we contact the courier soon enough to investigate, but after a couple of days have passed it becomes a near impossibility to retrieve/recover items from the courier.
If after a longer period of time, there is irrefutable proof of a shortage such as a weight measurement from a courier we will endeavour to put any error on our part right as soon as possible.
Orders returned due to incomplete or erroneous address
It is the customers responsibility to provide a complete and correct delivery address. In the event that goods are posted but returned due to unknown delivery address or another error on the customers part we reserve the right to invoice for additional postage costs before dispatching item(s) again.
ANY order that includes a pre-order item will be held until all items can be dispatched together. Please bear this in mind when placing orders containing both in-stock and pre-order items.
Restriction of Goods
Protect and Collect reserves the right at our sole discretion to place limits on the quantity of certain items which can be ordered by an individual, household or on a single order. These restrictions may apply to orders placed via the same payment method or orders with the same billing, shipping addresses. We will always provide notification to a customer should any restrictions/limits be placed on an existing order. Protect and Collect reserves the rights to cancel any order without prior notification or reason.
