We also recommend you immediately inspect any goods that we deliver to you to ensure you are completely satisfied with the goods, including that the goods are of acceptable quality, and match the description we have provided to you.
Change of Mind
Please choose carefully as refunds are not normally provided where you have simply changed your mind, made a wrong selection or found the goods cheaper elsewhere. Please preview any orders before adding them to your shopping cart and proceeding with your order. In some circumstances we will accept exchanges provided the goods are returned in pristine condition with their original packaging with freight paid by the purchaser. A 20% restocking fee will be applicable.
At our discretion, orders may be amended prior to packing and / or dispatch but will incur a $5.50 administration fee to do so. Refunds for change of mind will not be granted under any circumstances.

If any goods arrive damaged, please contact us as soon as possible. We may arrange to have the damaged goods returned to us with freight at your cost and either arrange for a replacement of the goods or refund the price to you or grant a shop credit. If the value of the breakages or defective products is less than $20, we will not send individual replacements, and will issue refunds or credits only, provided that the additional transit insurance has been purchased. In these instances if you require a replacement you must pay return freight at cost. Refunds Refunds will be made via the method of payment you used to make your online purchase. Refunds will normally be processed within thirty (30) days.
