You will be responsible for the cost of returning the unwanted product. A standard size chair purchased from "Stock" a guide price would be around £55+VAT UK Mainland (depending on which carrier which you choose), excluding Highlands.
These Regulations apply to those products which we specify as stock items.

If you are out when the carrier attempts to deliver your parcel, they will leave a card with a contact number for you to arrange a new delivery date. If a parcel is small enough to fit through a letterbox, it may be delivered by Royal Mail, which will not require a signature. Deliveries are made Monday to Friday.
We will make every effort to deliver products within the estimated timescales. However delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors or events outside our control, for example extreme weather, a flood or fire.

We will, at our option, either make good by repair or the supply of a replacement, defects which, under proper use, appear in the products within the period of the manufacturer’s guarantee after the products have been delivered, provided that:
You notify us in writing of the claimed defects immediately on their appearance; and
We are satisfied that the defects arise solely from faulty design (other than a design made, furnished or specified by you ), materials or workmanship; and
The products claimed to be defective are returned to us initially at your expense.
This section will not apply to normal wear and tear.
The repaired or replacement products will be delivered to you to the original place of delivery.

Please note should you be purchasing a chair and it is delivered beyond the UK Mainland it may need to be returned to us in the UK should there be any warranty issue. We can in some instances send out parts for your own fitment.
11. Returns Procedure
Due to the bespoke nature of the majority of our product please telephone us to discuss any returns issues. Under the Consumer Rights Directive ('CRD'), if you are contracting with us as a consumer online or by phone, you have the right to cancel your contract at any time up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive the goods or services you ordered. These regulations only apply to those items shown as Next Day Delivery or In Stock and do not apply to other items as they will have to be made to order and are therefore deemed as bespoke items under the regulations.
If you originally selected to pay an additional charge for quick delivery we will only refund the price paid for the item and not the enhanced delivery charge.
The cost of returning the item is with the sender and it is necessary that it is returned in the condition it was received with all the original packaging.
