Shipping & Returns

Please see our Coronavirus announcement and how it affects customer services and returns.

Returns Procedure

If you have ordered an incorrect item or have changed your mind, please follow our returns procedure below:

Send an email to [email protected] to let us know you want to return your item. Please include your name, order number and reason for return. We will respond with further details and returns advice.

Return Options

 There are several postage options for returning goods to us:

    1. You can arrange your own courier of your choice and return the items to the address provided by customer services.
    2. For smaller packages we can offer a Royal Mail returns label. You simply print the label and attach it to the outer packaging. The cost of this, currently £3.50 would be discounted from the final refund.
    3. If you require collection from your home address, we can arrange a collection of the goods with a courier service. The cost of this would be quoted on request based on the dimensions and weight of your package, and the cost would be deducted from the final refund.

    Return Conditions

    Unwanted Items

    • Customers are within their rights to return any item within the first 14 days of receipt of the item. Customers must return the goods at their own cost in an unused and re-saleable condition in their original packaging. 
    • Any items returned without first obtaining a confirmation email and RMA number from customer services may experience delays in refunds.
    • Until the package is received by us at our premises, the customer is responsible for any loss or damage. Please ask for proof of posting when returning items – this is required to protect your loss in the event that the items are not received by us at our premises.
    • Once we have received the items, we will notify you and refund the purchase price within 14 days.
    • We regret that any items received in a used or non re-saleable state, or missing any parts, or missing the original packaging cannot be refunded. We reserve the right to make a deduction from any applicable refund if the value of the returned item(s) have been reduced by the customer.
    • Some items cannot be returned as unwanted items. These include, but are not limited to cut-to-size tubing / pipework, cut-to-size liners, cut-to-size filter media.

     Faulty & Damaged Items

    • Customers must contact our Customer Service Department immediately if an item is received from our courier in a damaged condition. We may ask for photos to prove to our courier that these items were received in this condition.
    • Items that have developed faults within the store warranty of 12 months will be required to be tested to verify the fault and to identify any repairs that can be made. Warehouse Aquatics will cover the postage cost of faulty goods back to our warehouse for testing within this time period. If a product is returned as faulty but no fault is found, the customer is expected to pay the costs of shipping. In some cases, we may offer a new unit to replace the faulty unit. However, if a fault is not found, the customer may be charged for the new unit also.
    • In the case of the product being outside of the store warranty of 12 months but within a manufacturer's warranty, the goods must be sent at the customer's own expense and then tested. If the item is confirmed as faulty, Warehouse Aquatics will attempt to repair or source a replacement through the manufacturer. This process may involve increased delays as Warehouse Aquatics will be acting on behalf of the customer to resolve the issue with the manufacturer. Warehouse Aquatics will cover the shipping costs of returning the repaired / replaced item to you.
    • Any returns deemed to be outside of reasonable use, such as wear and tear, will not be refunded and return postage costs will be at the customer's expense.
    • Some items including but not limited to glass tubes / bulbs, T8 fluorescent light tubes and T5 fluorescent light tubes are considered consumable items. Consumable items are not covered by a manufacturer warranty unless otherwise stated on the product page and we cannot replace such items unless they become faulty within the initial 30 day period.
    • Glass aquariums must be installed on a purpose built aquarium cabinet or stand, or other suitable flat surface with a surface at least same or larger than the footprint of the aquarium. If your aquarium is found to have been installed on an unsuitable stand or cabinet, or installed on an undersized surface this will void your warranty.
    • Glass aquariums cannot be moved whilst filled with water. If your aquarium is found to have been moved whilst filled or otherwise mis-handled this will void your warranty.

    Your statutory rights are not affected by our returns policy.
