The customer is solely responsible for checking any items / goods upon receipt of their order. If there is a manufacturing defect to any item or it arrives damaged the customer must contact us within 14 days via email explaining what is wrong with the item, including a contact number and original order number.
If there is a manufacturing defect or the item was damaged in transit, we will organise and pay for courier collection.
Before we can do this, we need the customer to take a picture of the problem and email it to us so that we can confirm the manufacturing defect. If the customer will not supply a picture then they will need to organise the return of the item at their own expense and that shipping cost will not be refunded by Bell Tent UK. In the unlikely event that the suspected fault cannot be photographed, Bell Tent UK must be informed of this situation when the customer is asked to provide photographic evidence, and this situation will be negotiated between Bell Tent UK and the customer. If this is agreed, Bell Tent UK will take back the item and test for the fault themselves. If a fault is found Bell Tent UK will reimburse the cost of retur shipping, however if no fault is found, Bell Tent UK will not reimburse the return cost and the item will be again returned to the customer at the customer's own expense.
Once a return or a repair has been agreed it is up to you to make sure it arrives back to us in the best possible condition. Please use its original packaging if you do not still have access to this you will need to source suitable packaging that will survive the transportation back to us.
If you cannot source efficient packaging give us a call in the office 07830355993 and we can advise you. It is vital that you include your customer returns form with your package so that that your return is easily identifiable.
Items must be returned to us bone dry and in the best condition they can be in. Under no circumstances will we accept wet and mouldy returned tents.
12 Month Manufacturing Warranty
The tents come with insured shipping and a 12 month manufacturer's guarantee against manufacturing defects. Please note: this guarantee covers manufacturing issues (such as bad stitching and water-proofing), but it is not a blanket insurance policy against damage caused by wear and tear or adverse weather conditions, such as high wind. Poles bending in high winds are not a warranty issue and replacements can be purchased from us from £25, plus shipping costs.
Please note: It is recommended that you inflate any mattress for a 'test' evening before you wish to use it. Our manufacturing warranty covers manufacturing faults such as faulty stitching, seams or valves, but does not cover signs of misuse or wear and tear. Due to the nature of inflatable mattresses, if after the first test night no fault is found, the item is deemed to be fit for purpose and no refund will be given. Please keep hold of your transparent, self-adhesive repair patches that come with your mattress!
In the unlikely event of a puncture, we recommend:
First - Inflate the punctured mattress fully, and listen for the puncture. If you can't find it, then...
Second - Rub soapy water over the suspected area of the inflated mattress and look for the bubbles. If you still don't have any luck...
Third - Put your inflated mattress in a bath and squeeze! Most punctures can be found easily with one of these 3 methods.
Returns From Outside The UK
We sell all over the world and do our best to provide the best support we can. If there is a return from anywhere outside the UK, the excess shipping will need to be paid for by the customer. If there is a manufacturing defect we will look at every case on its own merits. However, for example if a main pole is damaged during a storm and the customer is based in Australia, whatever the outcome on the replacement of the part (warranty or not), the buyer is responsible for the excess shipping outside the UK.
We aim to provide a high level of customer support and service, so if in doubt drop us a line via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07830 355 993
