We always aim to achieve 100% customer satisfaction. We supply quality items from recognised manufacturers. Perceived faults can usually be resolved by a simple call to our Customer Services Team on 01796 482119, so please call before returning any goods.
However, should there be a requirement to return an item if it is defective, you should call us to inform us and you must return the item within 14 days of receiving it. You should include paperwork with your original order number stated, a description of the defect, your name and address, a contact telephone number and state whether you would like a refund or replacement. Goods are returned at the customer’s expense and we advise getting ‘proof of delivery’ as Foresight Optical are not liable for goods lost in transit.
When the item arrives with us and if it is found to be defective a full refund will be given, unless a replacement has been requested. We will contact you if the claim is in doubt.
If you wish to return an item which is not suitable or no longer required, you should call us within 7 days of receiving the item to inform us and should then return the item in original packaging, undamaged within 7 days from the date of the call. You should include paperwork with the original order number stated, your name and address, a contact telephone number and state whether you would like a refund or replacement.
When the item arrives with us we will refund the cost of the item but NOT the cost of postage and packaging. You can choose to have a replacement item (if available). The goods must be unused, in their original packaging and we will review the condition of the goods before issuing a refund or replacement, and contact you if the claim is in doubt.
