10.1            All new products carry a standard 12 month manufacturer’s guarantee. Should any fault arise within the first 12 months of ownership due to faulty materials or workmanship, we will, at our discretion, take necessary steps to repair or replace the defective part.  This does not apply to faults caused by weather damage, accident, neglect, excessive wear & tear or misuse, for which there will be no repair or exchange. The guarantee will be deemed invalid if goods have not been treated in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and/or have been altered or modified.  This does not affect your statutory rights.

10.2            Zips, Velcro tags, guy lines, ladder rubbers, pegs, halogen tubes, light bulbs and fuses,  are not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. Steel, fibreglass and aluminium poles are a consumable item and are also not normally covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

11.2            If you wish to return goods which you believe are damaged or faulty, please contact us on 01922 634808, or complete the on-line returns procedure, to facilitate the return to us. If your item is excessively large or heavy we can arrange a courier to collect it at a charge of £30.00 - this fee will be refunded to you once we have inspected the goods and confirmed that they are faulty or damaged.  If we find that the goods are of satisfactory quality then this fee will not be refunded.

11.3            Upon receipt we will investigate your claim within 7 working days:

11.3.1       If the fault is obvious we will process the refund, repair or exchange at our discretion within 7 days;

11.3.2       If the fault is not obvious or disputed we may invite the manufacturers to test or inspect the product on your behalf.

(b)                 Tents, canopies and ground sheets

(c)                 All caravan and motor home awnings

In these circumstances both the cost of repair and return of the goods to you would be at your expense.

11.6            In the event that the damage to the goods has been contributed to by you, we may consider giving you a partial refund for the goods, but this would be entirely at our discretion.

11.7            Halogen tubes, light bulbs and fuses, plus steel, fibreglass and aluminium poles are a consumable item and are not normally covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.  Therefore we will not issue a refund in respect of goods, or repair them, for problems related to these issues.

11.8            To protect our staff and adhere to health and safety regulations, we are unable to accept, inspect or repair any product which is not returned in a clean and dry condition. Please ensure all items are clean and dry before sending them to us as we are unable to handle wet or soiled products. Any items returned in poor condition, as described above, will be returned at the your expense or held for a maximum of 28 day before they are disposed of.
