If the fault cannot be resolved by sending a spare part the goods will need to be returned to us for inspection and testing of the fault. If you are advised to return the faulty product for inspection and testing we ask where possible to send back in the item box and also an outer box with additional packaging to prevent further damage.  We cannot be held responsible for additional damage on return if goods are not adequately packaged.

Once we receive the goods they will be inspected and examined. If the fault is not visible or is difficult to see how the fault occurred the goods will then be returned to the manufacturers for inspection and testing to determine the fault, how the fault occurred and if the fault is due to a manufacturing fault.  Providing the fault is as reported and the inspection and testing confirms the light is faulty due to a manufacturing fault we will offer the option of replacement, exchange or a full refund.  If inspection and testing proves the fault occurred for any other reason other than a manufacturing fault the light will be returned to you and outbound postage charges will apply.
