If the returned goods are received in a damaged condition, A & H Brass reserves the right to refuse their return or debit the cost of returning the goods to a saleable state.
8.2 We strongly advise our customers to return goods in a way that A & H Brass have to sign for receipt of the package and also retain their proof of dispatch for any goods they are returning.
9. GOODS LOST OR DAMAGED IN TRANSIT

10.1.1 The buyer completes the Return of Goods Form.
10.1.2 The buyer informs A & H Brass writing by fax or e-mail within 7 days of the date of the Acknowledgment of Order.
10.1.3 The goods must be returned in a saleable condition with the presentation packing (if applicable).
10.1.4 If an item is a special or has to be specially purchased, finished or manufactured, it therefore cannot be returned for credit. A & H Brass will inform the buyer by e-mail and ask the buyer to confirm by fax or e-mail (NOT by telephone) that this condition is understood and that the buyer is still willing to go ahead with the purchase. We're unable to accept cancellations for these orders, unless within 48 hours of the order being placed and special order terms accepted. If no reply is received within seven (7) days, the contract for the sale of the item(s) will deem to have been cancelled.
10.2 If the buyer has already examined the goods in the A & H Brass showroom and subsequently buys the same goods online even if they are made from a different material or have a different finish, the Distance Selling Regulations do NOT apply. However, A & H Brass do have a “7-day approval policy” whereby samples (1 per item) may be ordered and, if returned in good condition within 7 working days, a full refund will be given. The buyer is responsible for the cost of returning the goods and we advise using a service that offers “proof of delivery” as we cannot be held responsible for goods lost in transit. We cannot offer the “7-day approval policy” with any goods that have to be bought in specially and are not part of our standard stock. We will always make clear if goods are “special” and cannot be returned.
