DAMAGES & SHORTAGES
Upon receipt of the delivery of any goods by a parcel carrier, it is the responsibility of the customer to check the external condition of the packaging prior to signing the carrier driver’s consignment note. If the external packaging appears marked or damaged in absolutely any respect, the driver’s note must be marked with the words “Packaging received damaged – goods not checked” and cross out the carrier’s statement saying “Goods received in good condition”. Failure to do this will mean that the customer becomes liable for all damage and has no recourse for replacement or refund of the goods from The Imaging Warehouse Ltd. NEVER discard any of the packaging or goods as they will be required for future inspection in the event of a valid claim against the carrier.
In any event, the customer shall report any damage or shortage to the company by e-mail or telephone within 3 days of delivery and supply digital images of the damaged items and packaging. Provided prompt notice of transit damage or loss is given and provided it is proved to the company’s satisfaction that such damage occurred in transit in the UK but not otherwise, the company will refund, repair or replace such equipment free of charge to the customer.

We abide by the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 set down in consumer law and will, at all times, honour our legal responsibilities with regard to any sales of goods.The terms and conditions of sale detailed below are provided for your information, in line with legislation contained in Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. This legislation covers items bought where there is no direct contact between the supplier and the consumer. It does not apply where goods are bought for business use, from showrooms, fairs or exhibitions or any goods made to a custom specification.
Under current legislation, the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 allow for a “cooling off” period of 14 days from the date of the customer’s receipt of the last item of goods from an order. Under this law, the Customer may return specified goods for a full refund without any reason following written notification by e-mail, fax or letter (a telephone notification alone is NOT acceptable) – you will be issued with an official returns number which needs to be quoted with all goods returned to our premises – the goods are expected to be returned with a period of 14 days following notification of an intended return. This cooling off period explicitly excludes goods made to a customer’s personal specifications. It also does not apply to goods intended for everyday consumption, video recordings or computer software where the seal is broken by the customer. Goods returned have to be unused, complete, in perfect resaleable condition and including original packaging.
All costs of returning and appropriately insuring the goods until a satisfactory receipt by the company will be borne in full by the customer.
Once all specified goods have been received in good condition by the company, it will ensure that the customer is fully re-imbursed for said items for the original amount paid within a period of 14 days from the date of receiving the goods back. If a complete order is being returned then the company will fully refund any original postage costs (excluding any priority service cost in which case the basic next day charge will be refunded). In instances where only part of the original order is being returned then the company is not liable to refund any of the original postage charges.
