All customers have a 7-day ‘cooling off’ period from the day they receive their goods, in which time you are able to cancel your order and receive a full refund including original delivery charges. IMPORTANT: This only applies if you have purchased an unmodified stock item and the goods have not been used or damaged in any way. Where a product has been bespoke-made to your specified sizes we are within our rights to refuse a refund.
Written confirmation of your request for an order cancellation/refund must be received by us within this 7-day ‘cooling-off ‘period. Upon receipt of your request, we will discuss with you how the goods should be returned. No refund will be made until the goods have been returned and checked.
If the reason for the cancellation is simply a ‘change of heart’ then the return delivery costs must be borne by the customer. However, if the reason for the cancellation is a product fault, the return delivery costs will be met by Redwood.
