What should I do if I need to return an unwanted item to you?

We feel that you should be totally satisfied with your purchase from E-Bikes Direct. If, however, you wish to return an item as unwanted then you can return it to us within seven days of purchase. Please note that we require you to contact us by email and quote your order number and reasons for return prior to sending the item back. Please see below for important details on the condititon of an unwanted item return.

When can I return an item?

If you want to return an unwanted item, the item must be unused, in its original condition and suitable for resale (the items must be in an “as new” condition and in the original packaging including labels, stickers, additonal accessories etc.). If reasonable care has not been taken of the item prior to our receipt, resulting in damage or deterioration of the goods or packaging then a charge will be applied for the reduction in value. The item must be accompanied by the invoice with details of the reason for return stated. You are responsible for the item until it reaches us; we, therefore, suggest that you use a secure method of delivery e.g. signed delivery. The customer is responsible for any delivery charges incurred for the return of an unwated item. Remember, all packaging must be undamaged so please do not tape up packaging or write on it as this will make it unacceptable, this particularly applies to any boxed item, the box must not be used as external packaging!

In the unlikely event that an item is faulty then you may return it for repair within the period of warranty. Faults arrising from poor/improper use are excluded from this returns policy. If a returned item is found not to have any manufacturing faults after testing then it will be the customer's responsibility to pay the return delivery cost or the cost of return if we have arranged for a courier to collect, this will be deducted from any refund. Any product found to be faulty within the first 30 days of purchase will be exchanged for the same product, or spare component parts will be supplied, but these items cannot be refunded.

Should in the unlikely event that we send a wrong item to you then we will at our expense, either arrange a courier collection or supply a pre paid postage label to you to enable you to return the incorrect item to us. Once we have received the item back we will issue you a replacement item. Should you need an expedited service we can issue a charged replacment item and credit you once we have received the wrong item back. Just get in contact with us and we can discuss these options with you.
