What’s your return policy?
We operate an honest returns policy and if you return an item back to us within 7 days of the original delivery note or receipt with a completed Exchanges and Returns form and the items have been unworn and the original packaging intact in a sellable condition, we will give you back the amount you paid for the item or offer an exchange, whichever you prefer, no questions asked. Please allow up to 5 working days from receipt of you product by us to receive your refund. Please note that the cost of returning such products to houlie is borne by you.
When returning parcels to us please make sure you keep all receipts confirming the postage of your order until you receive email confirmation of your refund from us. We will be unable to process any exchange or refund without a proof of purchase receipt or delivery note. Please do email us to let us know that you are returning an item so that we expect your return.
Gift Boxes – as items are discounted within a gift box, we can only accept refunds for a complete gift box; We cannot refund individual items within the bundle deal. We can exchange gift box items for alternative sizes, but not alternative styles. These conditions apply to items purchased through our website and at our own show stands. Items to be returned or exchanged that have been purchased from an independent stockist must be returned through the independent stockist, not houlie Ltd.
What happens if I don’t like the items or they do not fit?
If you need to return an item this is not a problem. Just send the item back to us and, depending on your preferences and stock levels, we’ll either exchange it or give you a full refund.
(It would be a disappointment to us that you returning an item because you don’t like the item, as we pride ourselves on our product and quality). Return the item back to us with the original delivery note or receipt with a completed Exchanges and Returns form within 7 days. Goods are returned to us at your own cost.
We recommend that you send your returns by recorded delivery. Please do email us to let us know that you are returning an Item so that we expect your return.
What’s your refund process?
Once we have received your return within 7 days with the original delivery note or receipt with completed Exchanges and Returns form and the items have been unworn and the original packaging intact we will give you back the amount you paid for the item. All refunds are electronic refund, and we will require your card/bank details to process this transaction, unless the order was made through our website (whereby we can refund the cost back to the card used to place the order).
How long does it take to process my returns?
We try to process returns as quickly as possible dealing with your return. You will receive your refund or exchange within our target time of 28 days. If an item is out of stock we will contact you and let you know when it will be back in stock. To help during the Christmas Season we have extended our returns time frame. Items dispatched during the period from November 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015 inclusive can be returned in sellable condition at any time before midnight on January 08, 2016. Our returns policy will revert to the standard 28-day period for items dispatched after December 31, 2015.
Where should I send my returns?
If you are returning goods for refund or exchange, please send them to: houlie Ltd, Gate House, Chitterne, Warminster, Wiltshire BA12 0LG
