Please note that, for Serious Climbing to be able to offer a refund, the Products must be sent back in their original condition, and original packaging It is not always possible to exchange Products which were originally purchased as a special offer or on promotion for the same price as the original special offer or promotion price. Special offers and promotions are separate stock items to our normal items. Some items will have been selected as special offer or promotion Products due to their size or colour. Consequently,
Products at the special offer price may only be available in a limited choice of size or colour. Also, by the time you wish to exchange the Product, the special offer or promotion item may have sold out and the special offer or promotion price may no longer be available. Please also note that, in the case that the products are simply no longer wanted, but do not present a fault or mis-compliance with the description of the product, we will be unable to refund the delivery costs, nor the return costs. It is your responsibility to ensure the goods that you wish to return to us are suitable packed, and to take the right amount of insurance for transport.
We recommend using a trackable service and obtaining proof of postage, or if the Products need collecting because they are too large or heavy for posting, please email us directly at [email protected] Should Serious Climbing find that the goods have been used, damaged, damaged on transport or mis-handled, please note that Serious Climbing will not be able to issue a full refund for the goods, and will reduce the refund to reflect any reduction in value, which may be as much as the initial order cost, if this has been caused by you using them or handling them in a way that means the product no longer look brand new.
Please also note that, should we issue the refund before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have used them or handled them in an unacceptable way, Serious Climbing will be obligated to charge you for the difference in value. Refunds Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item.
We will then process your refund within a maximum of 14 days from recieving the returned products, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days. We will refund you by the method you used to pay for the Products.
