Faulty Items

If items are faulty on delivery please contact us soon as possible through the resolution centre in "My Account" or by telephone.

We will issue a Return Authority (RA) Number and organise a date and time (4 hour window) for pick up through our freight carrier.

Upon return to our warehouse we will inspect the item and repair or replace at our discretion.


Change of Mind Returns

All items may be returned for change of mind provided they are unused and in resaleable condition. We do not offer returns for change of mind on products that are 'purchased in' items as we do not usually stock these items.


We offer change of mind returns within 7 days from date of delivery.

Please contact us by telephone or through the resolution centre in the "My Account" section with your invoice number and we will issue you a Return Authority (RA) Number.  You will  be required to arrange return shipping to our store in Victoria. 
15 Mephan Street
Footscray VIC 3011

A 10% restocking fee applies to all items returned for change of mind reasons. Original shipping costs are non refundable. 


For change of mind we will calulate the refund amount and credit this back to your account. The refund amount is calculated as the original invoice cost minus original shipping cost and our 10% restocking fee.

The following conditions need to be met for change of mind returns:

  •  The item to be returned must be in new 100% resalable condition, with all internal and external packaging, any accessories, instruction manual or labels included when sent back.  We reserve the right to reject any change of mind returns in the event that we find the received product not in new 100% resalable condition and is damaged or in a condition we feel unfit for resell.  If the item is rejected for a change of mind return when we receive the product, we will charge you a 15% restocking and handling fee (instead of 10%), for the time and resources involved, upon determining that the item is not in 100% resalable condition but can be sold as refurbished product
  • Do not stick or write anything extra on the packaging of the item, only do so on the external packaging of the item.
  • The item returned has to be securely packaged so the returning courier can safely deliver it.
  • The item must be returned within 10 days from the date of issue of your RA number for the item.
