Faulty Goods Returns

RETURNS PROCESS FOR FAULTY GOODS (Up to 28 days)

To return your goods to us we request that you call the manufacturer’s helpline and obtain a fault reference number, this is to confirm that the goods are actually faulty. In over 50% of cases, goods that are first thought to be faulty actually work. Often it’s because the instruction books are poorly written or because the items are complicated to use that a fault is wrongly suspected. This call to the manufacturer’s technical helpline can often resolve the issue and prevent any unnecessary returns or inconvenience, saving you both time, and the returns costs should the product be found to be in full working order.

If the fault is confirmed please complete our online return form (RMA) providing details of the fault reference or DOA number if one has been given. We will then issue you with a returns number by email usually within 24 hours.

If you have any difficulties or questions relating to the above, please contact us by eMessage before completing the online return form.

When you return goods to us you must:

  • Include all the items that you received in the original shipment including cables, remote controls, manuals, CDs and packaging.
  • Ensure you package the product well and that there are no marks on the original packaging. We may not accept liability for any goods damaged in transit and a replacement or refund may not be offered. Please ensure that the RMA number is clearly visible on the outside of the packaging.

All goods are tested on return to verify the fault and always before a replacement or refund is processed. Any goods proven to be non-defective will be returned to you. (NB Software problems are not covered as part of the standard manufacturer's warranty.) If no valid DOA reference is provided with the return and the goods are in working order, you will be charged a £35 inspection fee and the return delivery costs.

Depending on the type of product we will either arrange a courier collection or request that you return the product to us directly. If we arrange a courier collection of your product we will specify a date for collection, however as we are unable to specify exact collection times this will require someone to be present when the courier arrives. We will only arrange one collection, therefore if you miss the courier you will be required to return the product to us at your own expense. If we ask you to return the product to us directly, please send it to the returns address at the end of this document.

Proof of postage is not proof of delivery and you are therefore strongly advised to send your package by registered post or courier and to maintain sufficient insurance to cover the value of the goods.

Please note we need an RMA number to identify your return - all packages arriving to us without a valid RMA number will be rejected and returned at your cost.

REPAIRS PROCESS (AFTER 28 DAYS)

If any of your purchases from Buy It Direct develop a fault within the warranty period, please contact the manufacturer directly to arrange a repair or replacement. In most cases the manufacturer will arrange a collection and repair at no extra cost to yourself. It usually takes about 28 days to return your repaired item to you but please note it can take longer depending on the manufacturer and the complexity of the problem. If you have purchased a refurbished or Factory outlet unit, please contact us to make arrangements for the repair.

Whilst we are more than happy to return faulty items to the manufacturer on your behalf, this does add an additional layer of administration to the repair process and ultimately increases the overall repair time (usually by around 2 weeks)an administration and postage fee will be charged for this process, please see below for charges. For this reason we recommend you return any faulty products directly to the manufacturer.

Between 28 days and 6 months - £10

Over 6 months to warranty expiry date - £20

*Your warranty guarantee excludes faults caused by misuse, neglect or accidental damage. Batteries and other perishable or consumable items are also excluded

These terms do not affect your statutory rights.
