3.3 Returning for a Refund or Exchange
Albert and Maurice will refund or exchange an unsoiled resalable item (with tickets and packaging intact). Please do not damage, stick any labels on or write on product packaging as this can make an item unsalable. If we have to replace any packaging then a 10% restocking fee will be applied before refunds and exchanges take place.
Special order and personalised items cannot be refunded or exchanged once manufacture has commenced. Special order example: Garment sizes that are currently not listed on the website are classed as special order and therefore cannot be returned. Personalised items example: Garments that have had personal information embroidered onto a them are classed as personalised items and therefore cannot be returned. Please ensure the sizes ordered are correct to avoid any disappointment.
Returning bulk purchase orders are subject to a 10% restocking fee on returned or cancelled orders to reimburse us of any additional costs incurred. If in doubt please ask before ordering. Please include with the returned goods a reason for return and if you would like a refund or replacement; this will expedite the process. You can claim a product refund minus postage, or exchange any item, again minus postage. All exchanges are sent with free postage, so if you need an alternative size we will not ask for any extra to cover the cost of shipping the exchange item to you, no matter what the value of the order is.
3.4 Returns Postage
The Post Office is used most often although there are many different courier companies online providing postage services at competitive rates so feel free to use the cheapest. Where possible you should use a tracked service and retain a proof of postage receipt as you will then be protected by the couriers insurance. Please be aware that the item is posted at your own risk, and only once we have received the item(s) back in its original condition are we able to process a refund. Goods returned for an exchange are no longer charged for redelivery, even if the order is of low value. We understand you're making a sacrifice when paying to return an item so we cover the replacement postage cost.
Please be aware that when returning goods to us, for whatever reason, it is at your own cost. We strongly advise you to follow the guidelines in the Refunds and Exchanges paragraph above regarding postage. We will only refund the postage charges on items if we agree with you that the fault is on our behalf. If we agree to refund your postage as a result of an error on our part, we will refund a maximum of £10.00 for postage. For larger or heavier items, where returning the goods will cost over £10.00 we advise you to contact us and we will make alternative arrangements. When returning items valued up to £40 a signature is not required however Recorded Delivery is accepted. For parcels valued over £40 we advise you to send insured for the value of the item but if we have agreed to refund postage this is strictly limited to a maximum of £10.00 (GBP).
Albert and Maurice is not liable for returned parcels in transit, in the event of any claim it is the sender who is responsible for processing the claim. Royal Mail will compensate loss only if you have obtained a proof of postage certificate on a traceable service from the post office. See Royal Mail for their own Terms and Conditions.
Some couriers will pick parcels up from you and save you a trip to the post office so for more information please view the returns page.
