We want you to be totally satisfied with every purchase you make from Naysmith Limited but if you are looking to return an item be it for an exchange or refund, please call or e-mail us first for a returns number within 14 days of receiving your order, quoting your order reference number so we can find your order quickly. We will then email you a returns form and a unique returns number.
Naysmith Limited warrants that the goods are free from defects at the time of despatch.
RETURNING AN ITEM
When returning an item, please re-use the original packaging if possible; otherwise please ensure goods are packaged sufficiently to prevent damage. Please include the completed returns form or a copy of your packing list, stating your returns number and what your wishes are for an exchange, replacement or refund. If you return an item without a returns number this may cause a delay in your request. We can only replace or refund on goods that are returned to us accompanied by a proof of purchase from The Stick & Cane Shop, or with means by which we can find your original order in our records.
Any refund given will be made automatically to your original order payment method (at the current rate of exchange for overseas orders).
When returning items, always obtain proof of posting as claims can then be made against the Post Office for loss or damage. We cannot refund or exchange goods that arrive back damaged or are lost in the post.
Please note: that we cannot credit for wind damage to umbrellas, this is a natural phenomenon and damages caused by the wind do not constitute a manufacturing fault. Also, we are not responsible if it does not rain on your special day; we are very pleased that the sun shone for you, but we cannot refund the umbrellas you did not need to use.
Furthermore, items that have been shortened through our stick shortening service are non-returnable for exchange or refund as these have been modified for you and are unable to be re-sold.
Your rights to return goods are protected under The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.
