What if my goods are faulty?
We unconditionally guarantee all merchandise against possible defects for 30 days from receipt. If your goods should develop a fault during this period you may return the defective merchandise FREE, for a prompt refund or replacement. The only exemption to this is personalised, custom made or special offer items. If it is not convenient for you to return the items yourself, then a courier collection service will be used. In this instance only, Puffin Clouds UK will pay for all return shipping costs relating to defective goods.
Any items found to be faulty after 30 days are covered by the brand manufacturer’s warranty. Warranty periods can vary considerably between brands, so please be sure to check prior to purchasing. Warranties are non-transferable and do not extend beyond the initial warranty period. If for example an item is replaced as part of your warranty agreement, the warranty only continues to the end of the original warranty period.
In the unlikely event of your goods developing a fault more than 30 days after receipt, then we strongly recommend that you contact the manufacturer direct for a warranty repair. This is often the quickest way to have a fault repaired. For example in some cases, manufacturers offer free telephone help facilities, free rapid repair or replacement services for your convenience. Alternatively, you can contact us directly if the goods do not conform to the contract, and we will endeavour to handle the warranty on your behalf. Carriage will be charged for the return of any products to Puffin Clouds UK under warranty, however Puffin Clouds UK will return your item carriage free.
