You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract however there is a minimum charge of 20% plus delivery / collection charge as we can no longer sell the item as new. This is based on the condition of the item(s) received at our premises upon you returning them. This does not apply to Special Order products – see clause 4.6. Customers are advised to clearly photograph any freight returned as damages in transit during the return are at your risk. Due to the personal nature of the goods, we sell, where we agree a refund is to be considered as a store credit to be used against future purchases.

If you pay for a collection using Compass and Spectre Ltd’s service in the event the reason for return is due to a faulty product, the cost of return will be reimbursed to you. If you return the goods by your own means of transport, then any reasonable charge will be returned to you in the same circumstances.
