SHORTAGES OR DAMAGE IN TRANSIT

Items sent by signed-for carrier are automatically insured but it is a requirement to notify us within 24 hours of receipt of the goods if there is a problem so a claim can be registered. This can be done via telephone (01606 330920) or email (sales@classiccarpaintsdirect.com). When signing for a package you will be signing to say that you have received it in good condition. IT IS IMPORTANT that you examine the package carefully. In the case of damage, note ‘Damaged carton’ or similar on the delivery paperwork. All packaging should be kept until you are satisfied that the item inside is undamaged. Any claim for transit damage may depend on the packaging being available for inspection. If the claim is allowed the carriers will normally pay for collection.

LATE OR LOST IN TRANSIT PACKAGES

When your goods leave our warehouse we will email you confirming dispatch. We always obtain a Certificate of Posting or receipt for every item sent.

Post: Royal Mail Second Class is used for items under 2kg packaged weight. Exceptions to this are items with a value over £30.00, check the listing or ask if you need more clarification. If you feel that the delivery is overdue please contact your local postal delivery office first before contacting us. If your package is not called for Royal Mail will return it to us and further charges will be incurred.

Signed-for carrier: Depending on the item and the delivery method chosen, this may be a 24, 48 or 72 hour service. If the carrier is unable to deliver the item they should leave a card with details of how to contact the local delivery depot and / or rearrange delivery. If you fail to respond the package will be returned to us and you will have to pay the carriage again. There are a few occasions where drivers fail to leave cards so if you have not received your item within the expected delivery period please contact us so that we can follow it up for you.

COLLECTIONS

Items can be collected from our business unit between 9.30am and 4.30pm on weekdays. If you wish to collect your item please select that option during checkout. Payment can be made via cash or credit / debit card via Worldpay.

Collections cannot be made by third party companies or representatives unless they can produce relevant paperwork or pay on collection. Note also that we do not package ‘collection’ items in any way.

FAULTY GOODS

Whist we endeavour to offer only top quality items there may be occasions when the item received is faulty in some way. Any damage known to us will be described in the product listing. Please refer back to the original listing before raising your concerns with us.

On occasion we advertise goods which are described as ‘faulty’, ‘assumed faulty’ or ‘customer returns’. These goods cannot be returned under any circumstances.

If you believe on receipt of your item that it has a fault please first notify us within 7 days of receipt.

Items which cannot be returned include:

– Items which cannot be resold for health and hygiene reasons once unwrapped (for example, face masks, breathing equipment, gloves etc.)

If we have requested that the item be returned to us we will issue a returns form and may ask that the item be returned to us by a specified method. In this case we will be responsible for refunding to you the cost of postage / carriage. For your own protection ensure that you are using an insured trackable service to return the goods as we will not be responsible for loss or damage occurring through transit. If the item has clearly been damaged in the return transit the item will be returned to you so that you can make a claim.

DISTANCE SELLING REGULATIONS 2000 / REFUND POLICY

The Distance Selling Regulations 2000 (DSR) apply to sales to private individuals (rather than business customers) who make a purchase without face to face contact with Classic Car Paints Direct. The regulations specify that there is a period of 7 working days from receipt of the goods during which time Classic Car Paints Direct must be notified in writing of the buyers wish to cancel through email: returns@classiccarpaintsdirect.com or post. This provision does not apply if the item has been collected from our premises.

All refunds will be credited to the payment card used to make the order.

This is not the same as having 7 days free approval. You have a ‘duty of care’ for the goods and the goods must be returned to us exactly as described and dispatched, in the original packaging, with all original insets, instructions etc. Once you have used or assembled you will be deemed to have accepted the item.

If the goods have already been dispatched and it is simply a ‘change of heart’ then the return delivery costs will be bourn by the customer. However, if there is a fault, the return delivery costs will be bourn by Classic Car Paints Direct.

If you wish to return the goods under this provision and have notified us in writing, the goods must be send at the buyers own cost and received by us within 14 days. There must be no additional writing or labels on the outside and the goods should be carefully taped up or re-wrapped as necessary to protect the item when they are returned to us. Please note that in most cases you are responsible for the cost of return carriage.

We will investigate any reasonable claims for refunds and refund customers within twenty four hours.

All refunds are subject to security controls and customers will need to give correct invoice numbers and usernames before refunds are made.

For your own protection ensure that you are using an insured, trackable service to return the goods as we will not be responsible for loss or transit damage that is evident and reported to the carrier when the package arrives. We will refund the full purchase price on undamaged goods as specified above. Where the item is supplied as ‘free post’ we will deduct an amount equivalent to the cost of the original postage.
