If you have received an item that is damaged or that is faulty on first use please contact us. We will be able to offer a replacement or refund for the item as long as this is reported in a reasonable amount of time. In some cases we will need to wait for the damaged/faulty item to get back to us (we may collect this or ask you to post this and we will reimburse the charges) before we can replace or refund this. Where we collect of damaged or faulty items we try our best to work with the customer and will collect at a convenient time and from a suitable address.

Once the product is back with us and has undergone testing, we will advise you if it is found to be in good working order. In this case we will deduct the £10 collection fee from the refund, or offer the item to be returned back to you.

Items received in error

Should you receive an incorrect item from us please contact our customer support team. They will decide on the best course of action based on the product received. Please note you may be asked to return this to us via your local post office and we will refund you the postage charges on proof of receipt or you may be asked to stay in for a collection of the item. With collections of incorrect items we try our best to work with the customer and will collect at a convenient time and from a suitable address.

Goods returned but lost in transit

We request that customers take reasonable care of their goods until they are returned to Drinkstuff. We recommend that goods are suitably packaged for transit and that a secure and traceable delivery service is used. Please ensure that you get a receipt for proof of postage. In some circumstances, we may either collect the goods or ask you not to return the goods. If your parcel is lost transit, please make your claim with the courier used to return the goods.

All returns will be processed and acted upon within 10 working days of receipt. If you chose a refund the amount of time this takes to show in your account will depend on your provider and account type (usually around 3 days).
