Need to have something Repaired under the Warranty?

PLEASE NOTE: All warranties are only valid for the original purchaser ONLY and are not transferable unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer.

Your product has failed within the warranty period? Contact us via the Customer Service contact page.  We aim for someone to respond to you within one working day.

All warranties can only be fulfilled to goods purchased and delivered within the UK. In order for us to conduct a warranty claim to goods taken outside of the UK, the goods have to be returned to the UK. This will, however, be at your own expense. This also applies to goods delivered to shipping companies. After a warranty claim, goods can only be re-delivered to a UK address.

If the original box and internal packaging are available, we will arrange to collect your product using our courier service.

If the original box or internal packaging has been discarded, please contact our Customer Service Department. We will be unable to arrange a free of charge collection with our courier if the packaging conditions have changed.

You will need to return the product to us using your own courier. You will be responsible for returning the product to us along with any associated shipping / packaging costs. We will still return your product to you free of charge after the repair.

All products are returned to the manufacturer’s approved service center and then returned to us once completed. Manufacturers aim to have all warranty work completed and returned to us within six to eight weeks. However, most are completed a lot sooner than this.

After the product is repaired / replaced by the manufacturer, it will arrive back with ourselves. We will contact you and return it to you free of charge with our courier.

Should the manufacturer report that your product is having ‘No Fault Found’, we will contact you and there will be a charge of £27.00 per box. This is to cover return carriage costs which will also include any charges for collecting the product.

Our standard UK mainland carriage charge for parcels up to 25 kg is £13.50 each way.

If your product cannot be repaired during the warranty period, we will offer a refund or credit note to be redeemed against another purchase from HiFiSales.co.uk

PLEASE NOTE: A deduction may be made from the refund or credit note value depending on how long you have owned the product:
1st Year – 100%, 2nd Year – 90%, 3rd Year – 80%, 4th Year – 70%, 5th Year – 50%

PLEASE NOTE:  All warranties are only valid for the original purchaser ONLY and are not transferable unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer.

Received Something Damaged?

In the unlikely event your purchase is damaged in transit, please contact our Customer Service Department via the customer service page within 24 hours of the delivery. Please include photographs of the box, packaging and product. We ask that the unit be ‘held’ until further instructions are given.

PLEASE NOTE:  We will require you to keep all original packaging.

Need to Return Something for a Refund?

HiFiSales.co.uk has a thirty day return policy on all products purchased through our website. To return goods, the customer must inform us via the customer service contact page. This must be carried out within thirty days of date of purchase stating that you wish to return a product. Please include your name, address, and original order number in all correspondence.

In line with the UK Distance Selling Regulations, it is the customer’s responsibility to return the products to us (along with any associated costs). Also to ensure that the product arrives safely, in an “as new” condition and complete with all supplied accessories. We recommend using an insured and traceable courier / postal service.

Any ‘Promotional Items’ supplied with the goods must also be returned. If such items are not returned, the full value of the promotional items will be deducted from any refund that may be issued.

PLEASE NOTE:  For hygiene reasons, in ear headphones may not be returned if the original factory seal has been removed and the box opened. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

How Does the Refund Work?

PLEASE NOTE: A refund will only be authorised after a full inspection of the goods by our Customer Service Department.

Faulty Products
Faulty goods must be returned within thirty days of purchase to qualify for a refund. If your purchase falls outside this time, please contact us.

Once the fault is confirmed by our Customer Service Department, you will be refunded the full purchase price. This is providing that the product returned is complete, includes all accessories and is in an ‘as new’ condition with all original packaging.

If our Returns Department cannot find a fault with your product, you will have the choice of having the product returned to you or the appropriate carriage costs deducted from the refund (£13.50).

Cancelled Orders / Unwanted Products
If the goods returned are complete, including all accessories and in an ‘as new’ condition with all original packaging, you will be refunded the full purchase price. This refund however will be less the cost of any additional delivery services requested by yourself (£13.50).

Assuming the goods returned are in an ‘as new’ condition but with accessories missing, you will be refunded the full purchase price less the cost of the missing accessories (prices available upon request). In this situation, we will contact you and you will then have the option to return the missing accessories or have the appropriate deduction applied to your refund.

If the goods returned are not in a resellable condition, we will contact you as they are not covered under the above terms.

A refund will only be processed once we have received / inspected your returned products. This may take up to a maximum of ten working days, but is generally quicker.
