- Please ensure the product is unused, complete and safely wrapped in its original packaging and that any security tags are still intact
- Please place the returned goods note for each item you are returning into the delivery bag with the items.
- Stick the returns address label over the original label

How do I return an item?
The easiest way is to take your parcel to a Collect+ store near you. Find your nearest Collect+ store here or call us on 0845 270 9888. Please note, you can only return your parcel to a Collect+ store if it weighs less than 10kg and measures less than 90x60x60cm (so no sofas's please!).
You can also use the highly reliable and convenient ByBox lockers service to return your parcels. There are over 500 lockers nationwide in places such as train stations, super markets, petrol stations, sports clubs and major shopping centers. Click here to find out more about Bybox lockers, Parcels weighing less than 15kg and maximum size 66cm x 43cm x 34cm can be returned via ByBox.
Before you return your item, please wrap and label it. The store will give you a receipt and an online tracking code. We will then collect and process your return for you.
How do I arrange a collection?If you don't want to return your item through a local Collect+ store or a ByBox locker, it's not a problem. A Yodel van can come and pick it up from your house. Just click My Account and choose 'Arrange a Return' or call us on 03448 222 321.
Please make sure that you get a proof of return sticker or have your receipt stamped by the delivery person. Keep it in a safe place in case you need to ask us about it. If you can't show us a proof of return on a query, we won’t be able to credit your account.
Can I use Collect+ for returns?
Yes. Collect+ returns are a free, convenient and secure way for you to return your items to us. There are over 4,000 local shops and most are open late, 7 days a week. We strongly recommend you use this option.
The shop will give you a receipt with a tracking code so that you can follow the progress of your return online. Your parcel should weigh less than 10kg with dimensions up to 60cm x 60cm x 90cm and be securely wrapped. Click here to find your most convenient Collect+ store.
Please remember to attach a completed returns address label. If you do not have one, simply download it here.
Can I return my item at a Post Office?We recommend that you use Collect+ or ByBox lockers as the best way to return items, but you can also return items through the Post Office. Just make sure you send them back within 28 days, unused and in their original packaging, and with any security tags intact.
Make that your parcel is securely packaged and enclose your completed returns note, giving us a reason for return and making sure the returns address label is fixed securely to the outer packaging.
The Post Office will provide you with a receipt. Please retain this until the item has been credited back to your account.
You should allow up to 14 days for parcels to be returned via the Post Office. If you need any more help you can email us using the Contact Us page or call us on 03448 222 321. We'll be happy to help!

Exceptions to our Approval Guarantee
Our Approval Guarantee does not apply to some items or may apply only if certain conditions are met. We will advise you of these exceptions when placing your order. These items are clearly identified on the product page and any conditions are set out there. This does not affect your statutory rights
Your Statutory Right To Cancel Your Order
For most items, you have the legal right to cancel your order within 7 working days of receipt. However this right does not apply to personalised products, perishable goods and audio & video recordings and computer software which has been opened. If you wish to cancel using this right, you need to inform us in writing within 7 working days, starting the day after you received the goods. You must also take reasonable care of the goods and return them to us or make them available for collection. We will not consider that you have taken reasonable care of the goods if they have been used in a way, or to an extent, beyond what would be reasonable when examining them in a shop before purchase. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the goods to us, including the collection cost, if you cancel under Distance Selling Regulations.
Sale of Goods Act 1979
If any product we supply fails prematurely due to an inherent fault (manufacturing defect), we will provide you with an appropriate remedy e.g. repair, replacement, or refund. Just call us on 03448 222 321.
If you report a fault with an electrical or furniture product, we may give you a supplier helpline to contact. We have arrangements in place with these helpline providers for them to identify the cause of any fault (we do not have the necessary technical expertise to do this) and to offer you an appropriate remedy on our behalf. If you are dissatisfied with the service provided by a particular helpline, please contact us on 03448 222 321 and we will take back control of the matter. Most helplines are open 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday.
Returns outside of the Approval Guarantee
If you return an item to us outside the terms of our Approval Guarantee, and your statutory rights do not apply, we may return the item to you at your expense or accept the return subject to charging you a returns processing fee, as shown below to cover our costs:
- Returned late (after 28 days) - up to £15
- Returned incomplete, used, not in original packaging, or without security tags - up to £15 or returned to you at your expense
- Returned outside of the terms of the exceptions of the Approval Guarantee (e.g. returned once assembled) - up to £15 or returned to you at your expense
The above fees will be charged to your credit account (if you purchased on credit) or deducted from your refund (if you paid by card.)
