Terms and Conditions
By purchasing goods from www.alastair-riley.com you agree to our general terms and conditions.
All goods must be paid for before the consignment leaves us.
ACCEPTING THE DELIVERY OF YOUR ORDER
All consignments must be signed for, unless you have previously given your consent, at the time of placing your order, for the consignment to be left somewhere without a signature.
Please note if your parcel is left at your request, without a signature, you forfeit your right to make any claim with ourselves or the courier in the event of loss or damage.
It is your responsibility to check your delivery for loss or damage.
We do accept returns- If a buyer changes their mind about a purchase and asks us to cancel an order, we can do this and issue a full refund, providing that the order has not yet been dispatched. If a buyer requests to cancel an order after the goods have been dispatched or delivered to them, then the following returns procedure must be followed:
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you are entitled to cancel this contract if you so wish under the Distance Selling Regulations, provided you exercise your right no longer than 3 working days after the day on which you receive the products. Please contact us within 3 days to notify us of the return and reason for this.
Then simply return the item to us in its original condition within 14 days of receipt.
Returned items should be returned in original packaging with any enclosed documentation. We will issue a full refund on receipt, excluding the original delivery charge.
1. Goods will only be accepted for return if they are dispatched within 14 days of delivery, unless we have notified you otherwise
2. The item is your responsibility until it reaches us. Therefore for your own protection we recommend that you send the parcel using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods.
3. The cost of returning the item to us is your responsibility. Please note that, with the exception of goods damaged in transit, we are not responsible for return postage.
Refunds for authorised returns will be processed within 7 days of receipt and will be issued via the original method of payment used by the customer.
CANCELLING AN ORDER
We do accept cancellations and our cancellation procedure depends on a number of factors:
- If a customer changes their mind and asks us to cancel a purchase before we have dispatched it, we can do this and issue a full refund, providing that the order has not yet been despatched.
- If a buyer requests to cancel an order after the goods have been dispatched or delivered to them, then our returns procedure must be followed.
- If a buyer refuses to accept a delivery from our courier because they wish to cancel the order, and the parcel is subsequently returned to us by the courier, then this will be treated as an unauthorised return.
Your Order has not arrived. If your consignment has not arrived within the expected delivery timescale please contact us and we will be happy to track the item. Sometimes for reasons out of our control, deliveries can be delayed. We will do our best to help if this happens, but we cannot be held responsible for delays and we do not offer compensation for late deliveries.
Lost consignment. Unfortunately, on rare occasions, things can go missing. If a parcel appears to have been lost in transit, please contact us and we will contact our couriers and rectify the problem as soon as possible. We will be unable to replace or re-send any order until this process has been carried out, and this can take up to seven days. If an item is confirmed as lost, then we will offer a full refund or replacement.
Damaged consignment. If a parcel clearly arrives damaged / opened then the customer must refuse delivery.
We aim to package the order to protect from damage in transit. However in the unlikely event the order is found to be damaged when the parcel is opened then the returns policy applies and we will replace any damaged order at no cost to the buyer or offer a full refund providing that the returns policy has been followed. .
Failed Deliveries. If the customer has exhausted all delivery attempts, or failed to respond to a card to re – arrange a delivery then the item will be returned to us. We are charged for all returns so if an order is sent back to us then we will contact the buyer re the return costs:
