Returning An Item

Hardware Products

We will supply goods that are free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery. Any component parts which become defective in normal use will be repaired or replaced at our discretion free of charge.

Vinyl & CDs

In addition to your statutory rights, we will allow you to return any vinyl or CD purchased from us for an exchange or credit note. Any credit will be for the cost of the item only (excluding shipping). You have 7 days to notify us, this 7 day period begins the day subsequent to delivery. However, before returning any item, please read through the following terms and exceptions.

Returns Procedure

Prior to returning any order for any reason, you must contact our returns department either by phone - 08456-803 406 or by email -

It is important that your order be returned in the original manufacturers packaging complete with any accessories, manuals or other documentation. Failure to do so may affect how we deal with your item on return or affect your rights.

We advise purchasing adequate shipping insurance cover when returning any item as the item is your responsibility until we sign for or take delivery of it.

International customers sending items back to us must declare their parcels as “Returned Items”. This is to avoid confusion at customs and avoid unnecessary customs fees.

If a returned item is as described, not faulty and was undamaged on arrival with the customer, Hard To Find Records will not cover any costs involved (e.g. returns postage or manufacturer inspection fee).

Once you notify us of your intention to return an item, you have 14 days for the item to reach us. After this time the return is cancelled and you must start the process again. This may affect your right to return the item.

We may reject items that have been damaged during assembly.

Any return not complying with these terms may be rejected and returned to you.

Damaged Or Defective Goods

If goods arrive in a damaged or defective condition you must notify us within 7 days of the delivery. If the goods are damaged in transit, please repack the items exactly as they were on arrival and contact us. Do not move the items to another address. If the goods are moved from the delivery address this can invalidate your shipping insurance.

Provided both our terms and the courier’s terms have been adhered to, the goods will be either exchanged, refunded or store credit will be applied.

Undelivered Parcels

Should your parcel does come back to us undelivered we will notify by email where possible. We will then keep hold of the parcel(s) for at least two weeks before the items are returned to stock. In cases where the items are returned to stock, we will apply store credit to the value of the goods.

If you require reshipment of your parcel(s) we may request you pay additional shipping fees. This is decided on a case by case basis.

With regards to international shipments, if your order comes back as undelivered for any reason, you may be required to cover the original shipment charge, the courier’s return charge and the reshipment charge if you want us to send it again. This is decided on a case by case basis.

Large undelivered orders may be returned to stock immediately but you will be notified.
