If for any reason you have received an order from us and there is a problem, the following should answer your questions and enable you to choose the next course of action to take.
Faulty or Defective Goods
On rare occasions you may receive faulty or defective stock. If this happens then follow these simple instructions and we will ensure that the issue is investigated and resolved as quickly as possible.
Contact your usual sales assistant to register the problem and arrange replacements. Details of the problem will be passed on to our customer service department, who will then take over, and arrange for QA investigation. If required they will contact you to arrange to collect the goods for return to FORMED. Should there be any problems with the replacements, we will advise you as soon as possible. Delivery of replacements will be made to the original delivery address unless otherwise advised.
When we arrange collection of the goods from you we will advise you of your Returns Materials Authorisation Number (RMA) which must be marked on the outside of the consignment prior to its collection. Please ensure the package is adequately wrapped to prevent damage during transit. (Drivers are under instructions not to collect any visibly inadequately wrapped packages, damage in transit due to packaging will affect credit processing).
Please do not dispose of any goods until advised to do so by customer services, who will normally confirm this in writing to confirm details.
Once the goods are received back at FORMED then they will be inspected and the appropriate action taken for corrective and preventative action, where applicable credit (s) will then be raised.
Returns Due to Unwanted Goods
We will wherever possible assist you by taking back any goods providing they are received back in good resaleable condition and meet the following returns criteria:
1. Goods must have been supplied by us during the last three months (supplied directly by ourselves and not a stockist or other source. If this is the case then we must refer you to your original source of supply.)
2. The value of the goods which you wish to return to us must be £50.00 or over in value.
3. Goods must be returned at your cost, within 20 days of authorisation and clearly marked with the Returns Materials Authorisation Number (RMA supplied by Customer Service. (Returns can only be accepted at our Goods In Department at FORMED. Our Area Sales Managers are not authorised to accept goods for return, nor are any of our sales staff)). Goods received back without authorisation may be refused which affect credit processing .
4. A standard 25% handling (collection and restocking) charge will apply and be deducted from the credit.
Please remember that we are unable to accept liability for packages damaged during transit.
Credit can only be issued for goods returned as authorised in good resaleable condition less the agreed 25% handling charge.
