Mailorder Returns

Unwanted items

You are welcome to return unused items for exchange or full refund within 14 days of purchase.

Returns within the UK can be done using our Royal Mail Tracked Returns service (link below). In just a few steps you can easily process your item to return. Then simply print your label at home or use the Royal Mail label printing service at a post office. Finally, drop your item at your local Post Office® branch, Customer Service Point, Parcel Postbox or get it collected from your doorstep. Your item will be fully tracked on its way back to Lockwoods.

If you need to return an item from outside the UK, unless faulty, you will be responsible for the cost of the return shipping. Please make sure that you highlight on the customs forms, they are returned goods and of no value otherwise UK customs will apply import duties and VAT which we will have to deduct from any refund.

  • Please complete the returns form on the back of your delivery note.
  • Items being returned must be package carefully and include all their original labels and manufacturers packaging. Lockwoods cannot be responsible for items which arrive back to the store damaged. If labels and or manufacturers packaging is missing, then any refund is at our discretion and will be subject to a restocking fee.
