Help & Advice
If you believe that the goods you have purchased are defective at any time please report this as soon as possible to the relevant manufacturers customer services. If the goods are within the manufacturers guarantee period they will arrange to replace or repair the goods as per the manufactures guarantee. It may be necessary to inspect the goods in your home prior to replacement. Should manufacturers charge a restocking charge on made to order or specially ordered item, we will have to pass this on and deduct it from the credit.
We try our utmost through our customer support line and website to ensure you have all the information to make the right purchase. If you feel you need advice before purchasing please don't hesitate to contact us.
For all non-faulty goods, customers must advise us of the intent to return the product(s) within 14 days, starting from day after you receive your goods. We must receive written confirmation of your intention to return your order and provide confirmation before goods can be returned. As confirmation we will provide a returns form, which should be returned with the goods. Failure to inform us prior to returning items or failure to include the provided returns form may lead to refusal of the goods upon arrival at our warehouse. We ask all goods are returned safely in their original packaging and in the same condition as per originally delivered. Plumbing World reserves the right to refuse returns where packaging is damaged or defaced, which therefore renders product unsuitable for resale.
As per the Distance Selling Regulations and the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2014, it is the responsibility of you as the customer to return the item(s) at your cost, and to ensure they reach us in good condition. For large items a courier company of your choice should be used, we cannot recommend any carriers. Please note, full shipping costs are chargeable to the consumer, Plumbing World do not cover the return shipping costs. You will be responsible for loss or damage of returned items so please ensure you take out the correct insurance cover. We also recommend that you take photographs for your records prior to returning your item(s) to us.
Once the goods have arrived back with us and have been inspected to our satisfaction, a full credit will be issued less any applicable fees.
