If you qualify as a consumer in terms of the CPA then all of our goods sold to you are sold with an implied warranty of quality against any defects for six months of normal household or business use, from the time we supplied the goods.
Defective goods are those that had a defect or were unsafe when we supplied them. A defect usually means that the goods were manufactured using materials, components or workmanship below an acceptable standard. You must prove that goods are defective.
We will replace or repair any defective goods that you return to us during the six-month statutory warranty.
All items sent back to us must be sent back at your own cost. We do not pay for return shipping.
We may inspect the goods to confirm that they are defective before we do so.
Our customer services department may tell you that they do not believe you have a claim, for example because the warranty period of the goods has expired. In this case we may refuse to replace goods, or refuse to pay a refund.
Deliver the defective physical goods under warranty to us or post them by normal prepaid registered post, insured against loss, damage and theft. The street and postal addresses for all returns are the same as for our customer services department, details of which are below.
Once we have received the package, we will notify you that we have received the physical goods. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that the package is delivered to Men’s Den within the returns window provided and at the correct address.
If you claim that our goods are defective, our technicians will examine the goods for defects. In the case of physical goods, our technicians will examine the actual goods. They will report to us whether the goods were defective, were misused or are of good quality. If our technician reports that the goods were misused, were of good quality, were not provided to you for a specific purpose or were suitable for that purpose, then we will not replace or refund the goods.
If you choose for us to replace or repair the goods, we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to organise the necessary steps to repair or replace the goods.
We aim for complete customer satisfaction. We respect our customers’ rights and always try to comply with best practice and all relevant laws.
