Refunds and Returns

NO QUIBBLE RETURNS POLICY

Our returns policy is outlined below, but, in a nutshell, we want you to be totally happy with your purchase, so if you are not satisfied for any reason you can return it for a refund ... no quibbles ... no questions asked.

ORDER CANCELLATION: PRE-SHIPMENT

If you wish to cancel an order or part order transaction before it is shipped, please do so immediately via telephone, fax or via email. You will be given an order cancellation number based on the time and date of the cancellation including communication method of the cancellation. Cancellations made via email and fax will be timed at time of reading, not sending or receipt. You will not be charged any penalty whatsoever and your payment method will also be cancelled. If the order has been shipped, then the Post-Shipment cancellation will apply.

ORDER CANCELLATION: POST-SHIPMENT

You may cancel your order up to 14 working days from receipt of your purchase. You will be invited to return the goods in an unopened and unused state for refund. Please see our Returns Policy for more information.

Returns Policy - Cancellation Of Order

All goods purchased from ASSERgerrard may be returned for refund, exchange or replacement within 14 working days from receipt of delivery[*].

Before sending the parcel back to us, please contact us for a a Returns Authorisation Number. You will be asked for the reason for the return including whether you will prefer a refund or exchange, plus whether the item has been used. In addition, you will need to confirm your name, order number and postcode, so please have these available if you telephone. You will need to include this Returns Number with your parcel back to us as failure to do so may result in delay of any refund. May we please ask you to additionally note:

1. You must take care of our goods whilst they are in your possession and any item for return must be received back in its original shipped condition and original packing. The item must be without damage or use and in a suitable condition for resale. All original packaging should accompany any returned item. All items will be inspected on their return to our warehouse.

We are not a manufacturer, so the whole product and packaging must be returned as the same condition as you would have received it and how you may expect to receive it. If the product or packaging is in any way missing or damaged, we cannot refund.

2. That you or your carrier are responsible for any returned goods until they reach our warehouse. Cost and Risk of return will be at your expense and we strongly recommend that you receive proof of posting or use Royal Mail's "Recorded Signed" service. You may like to opt for Royal Mail's "Special Delivery" service if a valuable item.

3. For exchanged items, you may be asked for a nominal fee as a contribution towards any additional postage or shipping, depending on which shipping method you require and the circumstances of the exchange.

4. We try to make refunds within one week of receipt back to us, though we promise to make all refunds within 30 calendar days from receipt of goods to our warehouse. Please note that we will not be held liable for any interest payment that you may incur because any refund was made outside of your credit/debit card timescales.

5. Please return the goods to the address on the top of your receipt/invoice including the Returns Authorisation Number. Any returned items not including such information may well be delayed.

6. Any returned goods that we receive which are outside of this Returns Policy will be defined as 'In Dispute'. Such In Dispute items will not be refunded or exchanged.

[*] "14 working days from receipt of delivery" shall be defined as the date from when your shipment is received by you, being the date of signature that the package is received by you.
