DAMAGED BOXES

Is your item a gift?

Here at Cottage Toys and Interiors we are always trying to think of new ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We care about the environment and want to protect the planet for our children and future generations. 

One area in which we are always trying to improve is that of packaging. Wherever possible we will always use a recycled external box. However, for smaller items that come in a bag it unfortunately this is not possible due to the courier's bag-it system. (These bag-it's are recyclable however.)

To try and keep our use of plastic packaging to a minimum we have now decided to use minimal or no bubble wrap for these items delivered inside bag-it's.

We believe it is the toy inside that counts and as long as this arrives safely the outer packaging is obsolete. This is supported by the fact that as parents ourselves we know that a child will not be upset if their box arrives dented, given said box will only be thrown away. 

For the above mentioned it is therefore our comapny policy that we will not replace an item due to a damaged outer box. 

We are aware however that sometimes an item ordered is a GIFT and you may be disappointed if it's box arrives with a dent or tear. (99% of the time this does not happen however.) Therefore for these items, if you wish, please select GIFT and additional packaging will be used. 

Please note that we never send out a box other than in perfect condition and we trust our delivering partners to take care with our parcels so they arrive safely. Unfortunately however once the parcel leaves our care this is out of our hands.  

We hope you agree that it's very important to do all we can to reduce global warming and this is just one small step in which we can help.

We are also curently in the process of looking into more ways to improve so that we can iliminate plastic completely, whilst ensuring that every single delivery arrives unscathed.

Please note delivery for large furniture pieces such as cots and beds are delivered by our dedicated delivery service.

If you miss your delivery there may be an additional delivery chage for re-delivery given this is a specialist furniture item.

Return costs are borne by the customer. The condition to this is that we are informed of your intention and the item is returned within 14 days of receipt, and in an unused and re-saleable condition (inclusive of its original packaging). If an item has been opened and comes back to us in what we perceive to be an un-salable condition we will not be able to refund you. 

It is our company policy not to replace an item due to a damaged outer box. Please see DAMAGED BOXES above. 

Special pre order items such as beds and cots which are not stock items, these include all Oeuf and Incy Interiors furniture, that are ordered specifically for the customer are not eligible for a refund, unless there is a specific issue with the item, such as arriving damaged or not being fit for purpose. Please note that all delivery times are an estimate and may change due to delays out of our control.  

A re-stocking fee of 20% of the item value may also be applied, this included if you change your mind due to a late delivery. Any additional costs for returns of cots and furniture will be payable by the customer.

With regards to products that are faulty, we will replace the component part where possible. If we cannot replace the faulty component we will then replace the whole product. In order to do this we must first receive the item back to ascertain the damages. We will also ask for detailed images via email. Please be assured that your statutory rights remain unaffected.

We must be notified within 7 days of your shipment notification for any missing parcels in order to process a full refund. For a refund to be issued we will first have to raise a query with our courier. We cannot be held responsible for any parcel that goes missing outside of this time frame.
