Returns and Refunds — Ralph Bentley

Returns and Refunds

We reserve the right to change this Returns Policy at any time. This Returns Policy was last updated on 01/06/2019.

**When you receive your item, you must check it as soon as possible following receipt and always before use. Do not use broken or damaged items - please email info@ralphbentley.co.uk for customer service support**

YOUR RIGHT TO CHANGE YOUR MIND

We've all done it, ordered something and then realised later that it is no longer needed.

For standard, non-personalised products, you have a quibble free 14 days (from the date you place your order) in which to return the item to us. We will refund you the full cost of your original order plus the cost of return postage (to a maximum of £9.95 per order).

This 14 day returns policy is extended to 30 days, if your item breaks or suffers from a manufacturing fault and needs to be returned to us for testing.

For personalised products, we are unable to offer any form of refund or replacement, unless the item has been damaged in transit. We cannot be held responsible for spelling or grammatical errors, so please ensure you check all text before placing your order.

WRONG ITEM RECEIVED

We apologise if you have received the wrong item by mistake. This is not common and we want to resolve this as quickly as possible for you.

To receive a refund or a replacement, you must return the item in the same condition you received it and within 30 days from the day on which you received the item.

Please email info@ralphbentley.co.uk and a member of our team will discuss which options are available to you.

DAMAGED OR FAULTY ITEMS

Please accept our apologies if you have received an item that is damaged or faulty. We understand how frustrating this can be and want to resolve this as quickly as possible for you.

If you believe that the item is faulty, please contact us. You will need to tell us exactly what the fault is and as soon as possible after discovering the fault and we will advise what to do next.

Our Returns Policy for faulty items upholds your statutory rights.

ITEM NOT RECEIVED

We apologise if you have not received your item. This is not common and we want to resolve this as quickly as possible for you.

To receive a refund or a replacement, you must inform us that you have not received your item within 14 days from the day on which you placed your order.

We cannot be held responsible for inaccurate or incomplete delivery addresses. If an item is delivered to an address that is incorrect, we will not be able to offer any form of refund or replacement and will need you to contact our courier directly to arrange re-delivery.

Please check ALL of the information you submit through our checkout. Ensure all postcodes are correct and add delivery instructions where applicable. We cannot guarantee that couriers will read or follow any additional instructions.

WHAT TO DO TO RETURN YOUR ITEM TO US

  • Contact us via email at info@ralphbentley.co.uk
  • You must inform our customer service team of your order number, the item you are returning and the reason for return. 
  • Please package the item securely and include inside the package your order number, name and address
  • Please obtain a proof of postage from the Post Office when you send your item to us. Proof of postage does not cost anything, without it, however, we may not be able to process your refund or replacement in the rare event that your item is lost in transit
  • If you request a replacement and the product is no longer available, we will process the refund back to the original credit/debit card/PayPal/Apple Pay account used to purchase the item.

Any item you have accepted and then return is your responsibility until it reaches our warehouse. Please therefore ensure that you send your item back to us using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods.

WHAT WE'LL DO NEXT

All products returned to us are checked by our Returns Department.

If you are entitled to a refund then we will refund the price of your item (including the cost of delivery).

Returns are usually processed within 7 working days of receipt of a cancelled order, and at the latest within 30 days of receipt.

We will refund the original credit/debit card/PayPal/Apple Pay account used to purchase the item.

RETURN OF REPLACEMENT GOODS

If an item you ordered was found to be faulty and we replaced it, you have the right to cancel your order in respect of the replacement product within 7 working days starting on the day after you received the replacement item and receive a refund.

COST OF RETURNING ITEMS

Please note that we can only refund the postage costs for returning an item where:

  • we sent you the wrong item, or
  • the item is damaged or faulty; or
  • where you are returning a substitute or replacement item which you do not want to keep.

We will not refund postage for items found to be in good working order. Costs of posting the item back to you will depend on the item and will be communicated to you after the testing process has been completed.
