Once the item is returned, it will be assessed by an expert and if possible repaired in-store. If this is not possible, the goods will be shipped back to the supplier for inspection and repair. It is not always possible to provide an ETA for warranty repairs however we do our best to obtain regular updates from the supplier, and will update you when we receive information on your repair.

In the majority of cases, goods returned under warranty will be repaired rather than replaced. Where a repair is not possible, we will arrange a replacement on a like-for-like basis.
