Refunds Policy – UK Customers
When cancelling an order that has been dispatched you are entitled to a full refund including the delivery charge. However, if you select any option other than the standard delivery option, i.e. a timed delivery, a Saturday delivery or if the standard delivery for the item is post and you choose the courier option, you are entitled to be refunded for the standard delivery cost only and not any additional surcharges selected. Please note – artificial Christmas Trees over 6ft in height are considered a specialist order, the maximum refund for delivery will be £8.50.
Delivery Charges – non UK customers
Should you decide to return goods to us, or they are returned to us for any other reason (for example non-payment of duty or VAT, unable to deliver etc), delivery charges to non UK customers will not be refunded, except in the case of faulty goods.
EU Customers – VAT and Customs Duty
For customers based in the Republic of Ireland and other EU countries, VAT and customs duty will now be payable before you receive your parcel(s). The courier will declare goods on your behalf and will collect duties and taxes from you in advance of delivery, and will contact you by email to arrange payment. Should any outstanding duty and tax not be paid by you, the goods will be returned to us automatically in due course – as per above, due to the high costs incurred to us, we are unable to return the delivery cost part of your order. If you wish to have the goods sent out to you again, we will charge you a subsequent delivery charge.
Business to Business Orders
Delivery charges will not be refunded. Additionally, we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee for returns with a value greater than £300 excluding VAT of up to 25% of the value of the return.
Faulty Goods Policy
All products purchased from Christmas Direct are guaranteed according to consumer law. If there is a fault with any of our goods please contact us and we will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights.
Cancellation Of An Order
You are entitled to cancel your order and thereby your contract with Christmas Direct Ltd up to 14 calendar days from the date you receive the goods. If you wish to cancel the order you must inform us in writing, either by post or email. If the item has been dispatched or has been delivered (for clarity, an item is deemed delivered upon leaving the delivery vehicle), it is your responsibility to return the goods to Christmas Direct Ltd at your own cost. Please see the returns section above.
For any orders that have been specially ordered in for you from a third party i.e. the product is not held in our stock, we cannot accept returns. We recommend you ask for samples and make your decision from those prior to placing your order.
