Return Policy

If you find your purchase is unsuitable for any reason we will exchange it or refund the cost as long as it/they are returned in a new and unused condition within 30 days of the date of receiving it/them. Please be aware that you are responsible for the return postage costs.

Please be aware for health and safety reasons, we will not accept returns for underwear or socks after they have been tried on. As soon as they have been tried on we deem them to be used and will not accept the return.

For your safety we are unable to exchange or issue a refund for any new and unused climbing equipment once it has left our premises. Please bear this in mind before you make your purchase (this does not affect your statutory rights).

To return an order fill in the return form on the reverse of your receipt indicating the reason for return and the action you wasnt us to take. 

Please pack the item(s) carefully; goods must arrive in a perfect and unused condition for the refund to be issued. If you return goods that have been used we will be unable to provide a refund. When returning your items, please ensure you have gone through the online returns process and you have a return number. Either print the attachment emailed to you and include it in your return. If you don't have access to a printer just include a note in your return detailing the return number.

Return postage is done at your own cost. We recommend using a postal service that provides suitable insurance for the value of the item. Hill and Dale Outdoors cannot be held responsible for any items lost in the post.

We can only accept returns if you:

  • Return all original packaging and labelling

  • Ensure the product is in a new and unused condition*

*You have the right to try on goods to assess their suitability, just in the same way you would have if purchased from a shop premises. We will not accept returns for goods where you have not acted reasonably by wearing an item beyond just trying it on. Examples of this may include an item of clothing that has been worn, or boots or shoes that have been outside.

We reserve the right to charge a re-stocking fee if the value of the returned goods has been reduced as a result of you handling the goods more than was necessary. The extent to which you can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop. An example could be trying boots or shoes outside. The amount deducted from your refund will be communicated to you prior to a refund being made.

The standard warranty period for all goods (unless otherwise stated) is 12 months from the date of delivery to you. This covers defects in materials and workmanship, but will not cover general wear and tear. If your item has developed a fault and is outside of the 12 month warranty period please contact us - we will look at every case and do our best to sort things out for you. Return postage will not be paid when your goods are outside of the 12 month period and we offer no guarantee that the manufacturer will resolve the issue, however we will try our best to get the item either repaired or replaced.

Delivery charges paid at the time of order will not be refunded, unless the item is faulty or has been sent out in error. Please be aware that any refunds could take up to 14 days to be received into your account.

IMPORTANT: Ensure you use a postal service that provides suitable insurance for the value of the item. Hill and Dale Outdoors cannot be held responsible for any items lost in the post.

 

Return Delivery Charges

If you originally paid a delivery charge on your transaction and then return it to us for an exchange we will charge the cost of delivering the exchanged item. We will contact you prior to sending for an additional payment.

 

Returning Faulty Goods

To return an item you believe to be faulty, please contact us by email at support@hillanddaleoutdoors.co.uk.  We may ask for images of the fault where possible in order to proceed.

You must contact us first before returning faulty items as we will not refund postage costs unless otherwise agreed with us. In most cases we will provide a pre-paid return label so you do not incur any return delivery costs. We do not have the facility to provide pre-paid return labels for returning goods from outside of the UK. You should use a local courier and provide us with proof of the costs you have incurred.

When returning faulty goods within your warranty period, be aware that items will normally be returned to the supplier for testing. Once the supplier agrees that the item is faulty, we will issue a refund or replacement. Please be aware that any refunds may take up to 14 days to be received into your account.

When returning faulty items to us ensure that:

  • Items are clean and free from dirt and debris (our suppliers will reject unclean items)

  • You include the original purchase receipt

For health and safety reasons, we insist that all returns are clean and free from dirt and debris. Soiled garments will be rejected and returned at your own cost.

If you return an item that is found not to be faulty we will require a payment for return postage to you.

If you've had the product for up to one year we will repair the product, or if that's not possible replace the product. If this isn't possible and we can't find an alternative product we will provide a refund.
