5. Cancellation and Returns Policy
5.1 The Cancellation and Returns Policy applies when there is no fault with the goods you have ordered. If there is a fault, please see section 8, “Defective Goods”, instead. The intent of our Cancellation and Returns Policy is to be legal, fair and equitable for you, us, our suppliers and other Customers; we aim to treat you as we ourselves would expect to be treated.
5.2 Right for you to cancel your contract.
We do not normally accept the return of used goods unless faulty. However there are some products and some circumstances in which we may be able to accept for return a used but undamaged product. These are on a case by case basis, are not guaranteed, are to be considered a goodwill gesture and can only be agreed by the Directors of Garden Equipment Ltd. Charges may apply to cover the costs of returning items to resaleable condition.
If the item you wish to return is faulty please refer to 8, “Defective Goods”.
If the goods you wish to return have not been used, you may cancel your contract with us for the goods you ordered at any time from the time you order the goods up to the end of the fourteenth day from the date you receive the ordered goods.
5.3 All goods should be returned unopened in their original packaging. Where packaging has been opened, damaged or discarded, we may need to charge a fee that will depend upon the state of the goods and packaging. Petrol powered machines should not be filled with oil or petrol unless you intend to keep them.

5.5 If you cancel your order before the item has been dispatched then we will be able to give you a full refund for your order. Please be aware that orders are processed automatically and, as we offer a next working day service, they are dispatched quickly.
5.6 If you cancel your order after it has been dispatched then the item will need to be returned. Please be aware that if you refuse delivery of an item, the cost of the return carriage will be deducted from your refund. If you refuse an item because it is damaged then please see section 8, “Defective Goods”, instead.
5.7 We will normally be able to arrange collection of your goods for return. We will charge you a fee for collection. If you wish to arrange the return yourself, you must use a secure courier who provides us with full traceability – DHL or UPS are examples of such companies – and you must contact us for returns information before sending.
5.8 Cancelled and returned items will be re-credited as soon as possible after the goods, if dispatched, have been returned and inspected. As set out above, for returned items we reserve the right to deduct the cost of return carriage and a fee, that depends on the state of the returned goods and packaging, from the amount we re-credit to you.
