Faulty or Damaged Goods
In the event that you have received a damaged or faulty product we will try to rectify the issue as quickly as possible by either repairing your product where possible or replacing it with the same or an equivalent model.
We recommend the following:
- Initially, if there is one contact the manufacturer’s helpline, repair or warranty service. Using this service may be the fastest way to get the problem put right.
- If there is no warranty or repair service contact us on 01803 66 66 30 and we will be happy to assist you.
When returning the faulty product please remember to include your invoice, returns form and ensure that all petrol products are drained of fuel and oil before return.
Damaged in Transit
We always ask that you check your order thoroughly on receipt from the courier and not to sign for or accept the item if the exterior packaging appears extensively damaged.
In the unlikely event that your item is damaged in transit but this is not apparent from the packaging, please contact us immediately to inform us of the problem.
Please note any claims for damage made in transit must be made within 3 working days of delivery. We may ask for proof of the damaged packaging in the form of photographic evidence or return of the actual packaging.
TCD will cover the cost of a return where the item is faulty or damaged but this return cost should not exceed £7.50 without prior authorisation from us. Please note that collections can only be arranged for certain items.
Please note TCD cannot be held responsible for lost returns. Please ensure you return them via an appropriate courier or insured method as we do not accept any liability until received by us. Unfortunately, proof of posting cannot be accepted as confirmation of delivery.
Claims for total loss in transit should be made in writing within 7 days of receipt of invoice. If the carrier's conditions are not strictly complied with, the customer will indemnify TCD Ltd against all loss resulting there from.
