If the product cannot be repaired or replaced Tees Sport may offer a price reduction for you to keep the product or a refund if you do not wish to keep the product.

3. Liability for Cost of Returns
3.1) In the event that Tees Sport or products sold by Tees Sport are at fault Tees Sport will be liable to pay (or reimburse you) the postage costs for returns;
3.1.1) As such, a Royal Mail Tracked Returns label, as mentioned in section 2.1.1), should be used to return any order item(s) so long as they conform to the guidelines mentioned in section 2.1.2).
3.1.2) Products which are claimed to be faulty and weigh more than 2kg (e.g. table tennis robots etc.) can be arranged to be collected by Tees Sport (or by an agent acting on behalf of Tees Sport) via a courier service.
a) This service will incur no cost to you if the product is verified as faulty on return.
b) If the product is verified as not faulty upon its return the product will be returned to you subject to a £20.00 carriage charge, which must be paid in advance of its return.
3.1.3) If you choose not to make use of a Royal Mail Tracked Returns label (in such cases that this is a valid option), instead favouring a returns option of your own, even in the event that a product we’ve sent you may be faulty or incorrect, we reserve the right to reimburse you only up to the value of £3.00 for the return postage cost.
3.1.4) Tees Sport may employ an agent to act on their behalf for the handling of servicing or claims regarding fault of certain products (e.g. table tennis robots). This does not affect your statutory rights; however, you may be required to discuss all aspects of any such claim with Tees Sport's third-party representative agent to the point that the issue is resolved.
If you have purchased a Butterfly Amicus robot from Tees Sport and you wish to request for it to be serviced or raise a claim for a fault, please download the Butterfly Robot Report Form at www.teessport.com/downloads/1530175715Amicus_Robot_Report_Form.docx and follow the instructions on the form.
3.2.1) In the event that Tees Sport or products sold by Tees Sport are not at fault liability for all postage costs for returns rests with you. In such cases, a Royal Mail Tracked Returns label may be used to return order item(s) to us as per section 2.1.1), so long as they conform to the guidelines mentioned in section 2.1.2). In such cases, Tees Sport reserve the right to deduct the cost of this return (£3.00 as of 23/01/2020) from any refund due to you for the returned item(s).
3.2.2) We will not refund the return postage paid by you to another courier for the return of any order item(s) whereby Tees Sport or products sold by Tees Sport are not at fault.
3.2.3) Tees Sport will not accept fault for any returned order items if the reason for return is that they are no longer wanted, despite being correct and not faulty, nor for items returned due to sizing issues (so please see our size guide or contact us regarding sizing prior to ordering if you are unsure).
3.2.4) Whereby you are entitled to a refund on the postage from your original order, we will only be liable to refund postage to the value of the lowest cost delivery option available to you at the time of your order (i.e. postage costs for an increased level of delivery service from that of the lowest cost delivery option cannot be refunded in full).
4. Right to a Refund
4.1) Faulty or incorrect products must be sent back for inspection before a refund will be issued. If the product is found to be incorrect or have a defect you will be offered a repair, refund or exchange as applicable (if available).
4.2) Damage due to normal wear and tear, misuse, alteration to the product, or negligence is not covered under our returns policy and a refund will not be given.
4.3) Returned goods should be adequately sealed in original packaging. On returning any item the original packaging should also be returned and neither the goods nor the packaging should be used, defaced or damaged beyond what is necessary to examine the product as would be necessary to assess in a high street store. Failure to do so could result in only a partial refund being issued where the value of the returned product has been diminished due to the condition of its packaging upon return, or your right to a refund could be voided all together.
4.4) Once a fault has been verified for a returned product, you will be entitled to receive a full refund for the value of the product (such as satisfied with clause 4.3 above) as well as the cost of returning the product (such as satisfied by clause 3.1.3) above) within whichever is the sooner of 14 days from:
a) proof of posting being provided by you to Tees Sport by email, fax or post, or;
b) the product being received by Tees Sport, or;
c) if Tees Sport has agreed to collect the product, the date that cancellation has been requested.
4.5) On returning any order item(s), it is recommended that, where applicable, you ensure you ask for proof of posting that you have sent the package. If you return an item without obtaining proof of postage and it is lost in transit, we reserve the right not to issue a refund. In such cases, you are responsible for the item until we receive it. Therefore, we suggest you return the parcel using Royal Mail Recorded (Signed For) Delivery or similar.
