Returns and Refunds

We want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied, you can return the product to us and we will either replace it or credit your account, subject to the below terms. This Policy applies to products bought from Eco Lifestyle and Home itself.

Certain parts of this Policy do not apply to Deals, reconditioned products or used products, and this is indicated in the relevant sections below. We will not accept returned products that are not in their original packaging, if the product is damaged, unsealed or missing, or the products show signs of handling and/or re-packaging.

This Policy forms part of the Eco Lifestyle and Home Terms and Conditions, and so words defined in the Terms and Conditions have the same meaning in this Policy, unless the context indicates otherwise. Nothing in this Policy is intended to limit your statutory rights in any way.

2. Defective products



We will try our best to ensure that the products we deliver to you are of a high quality,  and in good working order and without defects.

What is a defect? A defect is a material imperfection in the manufacture of a product or any characteristic of a product, which makes the product less acceptable than one would reasonably be entitled to expect in the circumstances. Please refer to our FAQs for some examples.

The following will NOT be regarded as defects and will not entitle you to a return under this section:

2.1 Faults resulting from normal wear and tear.

2.2 Damage arising from negligence, user abuse or incorrect usage of the product.

2.3 Damage arising from electrical surges or sea air corrosion.

2.4 Damage arising from a failure to adequately care for the product.

2.5 Damage arising from unauthorized alterations to the product.

2.6 Where the specifications of a product, although accurately described on the Website and generally fit for its intended purpose, do not suit you.





3. Standard Warranty

 

If you have received a product which turns out to be defective or otherwise of poor quality (save for direct warranty products), please notify us as soon as reasonably possible after you become aware of the defect or poor quality, but in any event within 6 months after delivery / collection of the product (except in the case of an extended supplier warranty, which is set out below).

You can do so by notifying us via email, and we will arrange to collect the product from you at no charge. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice repair / replace the product (if such repair is possible / we have the same product in stock to use as a replacement) or credit your account with the purchase price of the product (or refund you if that is your preference). If the repair / replacement takes longer than 21 days, we will get in touch with you to see if you would rather receive a credit / refund.

Where there is no extended supplier warranty period, unfortunately we cannot facilitate returns that fall outside of the 6 month period.
