Cheshire Hardware Ltd Returns Policy

As a mail order customer you have a cooling off period of 7 working days after the date of receipt of the goods unless the goods are specially ordered. During this time you may decide to cancel your order. Once your delivery has arrived you can return standard stock lines within 7 days of delivery subject to the below. Specially ordered products may not be returned unless faulty.
If you wish to cancel your order, please inform us as soon as possible. We will require a written notice of cancellation to the company by post, fax or email.
If you call to notify us of your wish to cancel your order, we will also require written notice of your cancellation by post, fax or email.
If you supply us with written confirmation of your order cancellation, it is advisable to generate proof of your communication: for example, a certificate of posting, confirmation of fax transmission or email delivery report.
On cancellation of received unwanted goods, the customer is under a duty to return the goods to the company as soon as possible from notification of cancellation and within 30 days of purchase, in the same condition as the goods were received (ie, new goods received must be returned in new condition with all fittings and the original packaging included). Items which have been fitted, installed or used in any way cannot be returned for a full refund. This also applies to specially manufactured or finished products.
The customer is responsible for the cost of return of unwanted goods and in the meantime must take reasonable care of the goods.

If you think you have a faulty item, or your goods become faulty within the warranty period, then please contact us immediately.
