Faulty Goods Process
Any item that is deemed to be faulty, must be returned to PWS in a clean & presentable condition to enable a fair observation of the item.
We will photograph the item upon arrival with us to record its condition and we will then assess whether the item is faulty or whether issues are as a result of improper use.
If the item value is under £25, and we deem them to be faulty we will issue FOC replacements.
Where the value is above this, we will arrange a return and any relevant credits or replacements will follow once we determine that the items are faulty or not.
