5. Assembled Furniture
5.1 If you have purchased and assembled furniture in flat pack form or which otherwise requires assembly, and following which you wish to cancel your order and return the product, please review this section 5 carefully because it will apply to any return and refund.
5.2 We do not believe it is necessary to assemble the furniture to determine its quality or to establish its nature, characteristics and functioning. However, we are still willing to accept returns of such assembled furniture, but you should de-assemble and repackage the product for return. The product should be returned in ‘as new’ condition and without damage, marks or other signs of unreasonable use.
5.3. If the product is not returned in the required condition then we are likely to apply a deduction for ‘unreasonable use’ to reflect the reduction in value of the product caused by your assembly and use. To determine the deduction amount we usually refer to the price we will be able to achieve when re-selling the product (known as Reverse Logistics), by reference to equivalent products and trading history, so that we have a consistent and transparent method of accounting to you. This deduction is usually around 50% of the original sale price, but will be confirmed to you at the time of refund.
Please note that, in our experience, assembled furniture is highly likely to result in a deduction for use because we rarely receive such products returned in a good condition.
6. Refunds and returns costs- At your choice (for faulty goods see section 7)
6.1 We will give you a refund for the price you paid to us in respect of any product properly returned by you in accordance with this policy.

6.3 We will not refund to you any costs you incur in returning the product to us.
6.4 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
6.5 We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 14 days following the day we receive your returned product.
