Cancellations & Returns

Distance Selling Regulations

Under the EU’s Distance Selling Regulations, customers located in the European Union are entitled to a 14 day cooling off period i.e. the right to cancel the contract of purchase. These regulations dictate that we will refund the cost of the item(s) ordered and, in addition to this, the original despatch charge.

E T James & Sons are not liable to cover costs of returning the goods.


Notification of the cancellation must be received in writing within 14 working days; starting from the day after the goods’ are received. You may cancel/return your order provided that:

1. The item/items are returned to us at your cost, unused and in original (undamaged) packaging.

2. The item/items have been sold from stock and therefore not ‘specially ordered’ in for the customer.

3. The item is not of an electrical nature and therefore strictly non-refundable.

4. The item has not been personalised, registered or specifically customised to the customers’ specification.

5. The item is returned to us within 7 working days from the return authorisation number being given.

Returns Policy

Please contact us in writing (Royal Mail or electronically) providing us with your order number, name and address details and the reason for return. A returns authorisation number will be given to you and once we are in receipt of your unwanted item, providing the above terms are met, a refund will be paid back into your bank account within 30 days. It is the customers responsibility for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning any item/items therefore we recommend sufficient postal compensation is taken out to cover the items value.

Faulty (excluding Motorised vehicles) / Damaged Goods

In the unfortunate event that your goods arrive damaged we require notification within 24 hours of receipt. We ask that if there is any evidence of damage to the parcel or package or if looks as though it has been tampered with, that the parcel is signed for as damaged. Signing to confirm (accepting) that the parcel was received in good condition when there is evidence of damage will hinder any claim for damage in transit and would result in us not being able to offer you compensation. If the item is damaged and there is no sign of damage in transit we will be happy to exchange the item or offer a full refund. Please contact our Customer Service team on +44 1597 810396 or via email at info@etjames-sons.co.uk.
