Return Policy

Your satisfaction is our top priority. We guarantee the quality of our products and we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchases. If for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we will be happy to exchange the item for you to better meet your needs. You can return the purchased items within 7 days of receipt for an exchange or refund (less shipping charges) of the item(s) subject to Return Conditions.
We are always striving to make the Return and Exchange process as easy and hassle-free for you as possible. The process is very simple, check out the Return and Exchange Instructions below for more information. Please contact us should you have further questions.

Return Conditions

Items must be returned in NEW (unused, untested, and resalable) condition, in the original manufacturer packaging, with all accessories, kit components, promotional items, and instruction manuals included. For your protection, items must be returned shipping prepaid, insured for the full value and safely wrapped to prevent shipping damage.

Used or damaged items and returns with promotional items missing will not be accepted. To help us continue being a Best Value Provider, please be sure to include all the free and promotional items, as well as all applicable accessories and literature, received with the original order in case of a return. Generally, as a “rule-of-thumb” you return the items to us the same way we sent them to you – in the same condition and with all the original contents. If a promotional item is missing, its value will be added to the original price you paid for the order, thus reducing the amount available to be used for an exchange or store credit, if such is issued.

We do not accept returns on customised orders. Please see Return Policy Exceptions (below) for more information on non-returnable items. All charges related to the return of items to Tool and Hardware (PTY) LTDare the responsibility of the customer.

Restocking Fees

A restocking fee of 10% will be applied to returns of opened, used, or damaged products to cover our processing, packing, shipping expenses and credit card fees. Additional fees may apply if the item is not returned in its original packaging.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of up to 20% for the return of resalable items outside of the policy stated here. High-value items of R2,000 and up will be subject to a restocking fee.

Exchanges

If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, we will be happy to exchange it for you. Please return the item to us within 7 days, providing the item is in NEW (unopened, unused, untested and resalable) condition and it does not fall into our Return Policy Exceptions category. Please follow the simple steps outlined in Return and Exchange Instructions.

Exchanges In Case Of Shipping Damage
If an item comes damaged as a result of shipping, we will be happy to exchange it for you.
