Returns Policy

We want you to be satisfied with every purchase you make. If an item you purchased arrived broken, is faulty or isn't what you had in mind, we're here to help, subject to the below terms.

This policy forms part of our Terms and Conditions. We are committed to operate our business in terms of the Consumer Protection Act and all policies are subject to the applicable law.

14 Days Exchange and Refund Policy

We will refund or exchange most goods if you return them within 14 days of purchase, provided:

  • it is in its original packaging and condition, including all attachments, accessories and documentation;
  • it is unused

Returns and exchange requests for items purchased more than 14 days ago might incur collection, delivery and processing fees. However, goods that show a manufacturing defect within the first 6 months of purchase will be repaired, replaced or refunded at no cost to you. See Repairs and warranties.

Unwanted Goods
  • Unsuitable for purpose

If you indicated a particular purpose for which you intend using the goods to a salesperson who confirmed that you will be able to use the goods for that purpose, you may return the goods within 10 working days after you purchased them if it turns out that the goods are not suitable for the purpose you anticipated and indicated to the salesperson. Subject to our rights in law to charge you for use and to get the goods fit for re-stocking, we will give you a refund

You may return the item for an exchange by contacting us online to make arrangements for the collection / delivery of the item. Promotional free or bundled items that were part of a purchase must also be returned.
  • Incorrect item delivered

Should an item be incorrect, please contact us to arrange for the earliest convenient collection date. Once returned to the store, the Product will undergo an assessment following which, the correct item will be dispatched. Promotional free or bundled items that were part of a purchase must also be returned.

Defective or Damaged Goods

If your goods turn out to be defective within the first 6 months after you received them from us, we will repair them, replace them or give you a refund. The courier service will be charged at the going rate for your area and Product specifications. Please note that it may not be possible to determine in-store whether goods have been damaged or what the cause of a failure or defect may be. This is important as it determines whether the goods may be repaired, replaced or refunded. Accordingly, we reserve the right to refer returned goods for technical assessment by the manufacturer or authorised service centre prior to repairing, replacing or refunding and to provide you with feedback within 10 days of receipt of the returned goods and to act accordingly. We may arrange for the assessment to take place at your home in the case of large appliances.

If your goods show a defect after the initial 6 month period, but still within the manufacturer’s warranty period, we may send the goods to the manufacturer for repair and the manufacturer will decide whether you have a valid claim and if so, whether they will repair or replace. If the goods become defective once the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, we can arrange with the manufacturer or its agents to repair them. No repairs will be done without you approving a quotation first. Should an item be damaged or defective, please contact us immediately to arrange for the earliest convenient collection date. Please make a note on the delivery waybill of damages as well. Once returned to the store, the Product will undergo an assessment following which a decision be made on the replacement of the item. Promotional free or bundled items that were part of a purchase must also be returned.
