Returns & Replacements
DDD Industries are committed to supplying product of the highest quality. However on rare occasions products may be found to be faulty. We aim to quickly rectify these defects and would ask that our customers follow a simple returns process. This will ensure the efficient and timely handling of all returns which will result in minimal disruption to our customers.
Before returning any item, please follow our returns authorisation procedure by contacting us via telephone or email. We will then give you an authorisation number. No returns will be accepted without a return authorisation number.
RETURNS BY POST
All returns, regardless of their nature, must be marked with the correct Return Authorisation number and the original Customer name/delivery address. All claims will be processed once your goods are received into our warehouse.
RETURNING AN UNWANTED ITEM
You may return any unopened standard stock item within 7 days of receipt, for a full refund. Bespoke items cannot be returned unless deemed defective/Transit damaged. We will refund your account once we have received and processed the item. Items must be returned in the original packaging and arrive here in unused condition.
We will only refund delivery costs if the return is a result of our error. We cannot refund or exchange an opened item unless it is faulty, or if the item was sent to you through our error.
RETURNING FAULTY GOODS
In the unlikely event of your item being faulty please contact our Customer Services Department in order to discuss your claim and to obtain a Returns Authorisation Code. Goods can then be returned to our warehouse for assessment/Testing. If goods are found to be defective we will offer either a replacement, repair or refund.
We test every single returned item. If a returned item is found not to be faulty by our test centre, we will return the item to you and you will be liable for the postage. This also applies to items reported as damaged during carriage and found to have been used. The cost will depend on the item. We will not refund postage on any item found to be in good working order or falsely reported as damaged.
Some defects can be rectified by discussing procedures/set-ups etc on the telephone with our Technical Sales staff. We would ask that you initially make contact by telephone or email prior to returning any goods
