Transit Claims

Whilst we take the utmost care when packing and sending items to you we understand sometimes items sustain minor damage whilst in transit. We understand this can be frustrating so we are here to ensure the process is straightforward and hassle-free for our customers.

What is a Transit Claim? 

Transit damage claims are only applicable for items that remain unused and/or uninstalled. That has been damaged during transit. 

Please note:

Goods believed to be faulty are covered with the Manufacturer’s warranty claim. For example, if an item has been received in full and found to have a fault this may be deemed as a warranty claim and is not applicable to a transit damage claim.
