You can choose to either organise your own return at your own expense and risk or request a collection using our courier service which incurs a charge.
We are sorry but we are not able to send out boxes for items to be packaged.
It is important that you retain your proof of collection as this is your only proof that the goods have been sent back to us. Kids store can not be held responsible for non delivery or damage caused during transport by a third party.
Which collection services can I use?
You can use our couriers, however experience has shown us that it's much cheaper for the customer to send returns with a local courier from their area.
Here are our recommendations based on reliability, ease of use and competitive pricing:
We recommend using Royal Mail for items weighing less than 2kg.
Please make sure to use a tracking service to ensure we have received the returned item.
For more info, please visit Royal Mail's website.
How much does it cost to use your Collection Service?
Our couriers are I.F.S. Although you may have noticed that FEDEX has delivered your initial order to you.
Here at Kids Store we can offer the services of our own couriers, but please be aware, as we are based in Northern Ireland and so are our couriers, this service is more expensive than those recommended above.
Our couriers costs are approx £40 + Vat per carton ( upto 25kg volumetric size ) but may cost more depending on the size.
Please note that during the current Pandemic couriers may charge an extra collection charge dependant on local restrictions. These charges are only made known to us on booking collection.
If you wish to use this service we can arrange it all for you. To arrange a collection please contact us at email@example.com. We aim to respond to you within 24 hours.
Our Courier collections take place Monday – Friday between 8am-6pm. For UK customers we ask for 24 hours notice to arrange collection, for non UK customers we ask for 48 hours. If your order was not ready, you where not at home, or the driver was turned away, you may be charged again for the failed collection. We are unable to accept liability for loss or damage of goods if the goods are left out for the courier.
When will I get my refund?
Once we inspect the item to make sure it wasn't used and it is on its original packaging, we will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction. This can take up to 14 calendar days. If we have organised collection with our couriers we can only process refund when we have confirmation of collection charge by our courier.
All products purchased at Kids Store come with a manufacturer’s warranty - this will start from the date of purchase of the item (please consult your instruction guide to confirm the length of warranty).
We will repair any product free of charge within this period; this only includes manufacturing faults and does not cover wear and tear, loss of a item, misuse or accidental damage. If a repair is not possible a replacement or refund may be offered at our discretion.
For any faults please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Within your email please provide us with your order number, address the pram was purchased under and where possible please send us some images supporting your claim to help us assist you further.
Faults after 14 days of purchase
After 14 calendar days, your product will then be under the manufacturers warranty and we will strive to ensure that the fault is rectified accordingly.
To find out the length of your warranty please consult your instruction manual.
All manufacturers have dedicated customer service telephone numbers and email addresses and you will find these listed below here.
We always recommend that to keep things simple and speedy, your first call should always be to the manufacturer directly as they best understand their products and have the necessary repairs departments to look after them.
Each case will be looked into individually and we will either repair or replace the item as we and the manufacturer deems appropriate.
We may have to request the item back to store or the manufacturers service dept. In this instance the collection costs will be covered by ourselves or the manufacturer, if the fault is of a manufacturing nature.
Larger items will be collected free of charge. For smaller items you will be requested to return them to us and a refund for the postage cost of up to £5.00 will be given on production of a postage receipt.
We would also ask for a few images or a short video of the fault as this helps us and the manufacturer understand the issue better. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Please see the section below (reporting a fault) for requirements and contact details.
The manufacturers warranty only covers against manufacturing faults and does not cover the following:
normal wear and tear
misuse such as, but not limited to, improper storage and product care
maintenance and use other than that indicated in the user guide
failure to follow the instructions in the user guide
abuse, neglect, carelessness or accident
modification or alteration of the product
