Easy RATurns

RAT RACE RETURNS POLICY

 

We want everything to be as easy as possible. That's why every order you make from us will include a free red bag (hurrah!) and a returns sticker to attach to this bag. If you're returning unwanted goods to us this is at your expense, and if you use our sticker we'll deduct £2.99 from your refund. If returning your product to exchange to a different size we won’t deduct £2.99 but will ask you to pay £4.99 shipping charge for the replacement product.

Peel the sticker off your invoice, stick it on the bag, put your product and invoice in the bag, and send your return back to us. It's that simple! Easy RATurns are available to UK purchasers only.

Technical Stuff:

When you receive your item, you have up to 14 days to change your mind and send it back to us.

We will exchange or refund all items which:

  • Are returned to us within 21 days of receipt
  • And are returned to us in perfect condition for resale, i.e. unused, with their original packaging and with the labels

Refunds will be processed within 14 days of receipt of your return.

We won’t refund you for items which have been customised for you – for example bespoke t-shirt prints – unless they are faulty.

Re-selling safety equipment and underwear is not in anyone’s interest – it causes risk to safety and hygiene. Therefore, we will point you in the direction of the manufacturer in the case of the following items:

  • Medical packs
  • Emergency and Safety Equipment
  • Underwear
  • Items with mouth pieces such as hydration packs, except when a manufacturer's seal on the mouthpiece has not been broken and the containers have not been filled.

Things might not always go to plan. Items could be mis-delivered, or spam folders could catch your emails. Therefore, if you have any doubts, it’s best to email us at kit@ratrace.com where our customer service team will be happy to deal with your queries. 

Faulty goods

If any product we supply fails prematurely during intended use as described on our product description due to a manufacturing defect we will provide you with a replacement or repair, if this is not possible you will be issued a refund. Email us at kit@ratrace.com and we will arrange everything for you.

Please ensure that you inform us as soon as possible after receiving your goods of any damage to avoid any delays in receiving a replacement or refund. Due to the technical nature of some of the products we sell, in the event that the product has been used at least once, we will need to send it to the manufacturer to confirm that the product defect is due to a manufacturing fault - we will get in contact with you on hearing their findings.

 

What if I have received my parcel, but they were not the goods ordered?

Mistakes are rare, but they might happen. In the unlikely event that we have sent you the incorrect goods, then first of all we apologise. Please return the goods using our Easy UK RATurns service (see below) You will not be charged for this. If you are outside the UK Mainland, please contact kit@ratrace.com to arrange reimbursement for your returns cost on this faulty or wrong item. Please note it is our policy not to reimburse any UK postage costs as we provide this free service, and will always instruct our customers to use it. Customers must always send back their order with an accompanying note identifying themselves and the reason for return - this will ensure we can process your return quickly.

 

How do I make a return?

Just use Easy UK RATurns service – there is a pre-paid returns label at the bottom left hand corner of your delivery note. Please hand it in at a post office counter so that you have proof of postage. When we refund you, we will make a deduction of £2.99 to cover the return cost. You may use other shipping methods if you wish, but if we do not receive your goods we will require tracking information from you.  Customers outside of the UK do not qualify for this returns service, and must arrange their own return shipment. Without proof of postage no claim can be made in the event of the product failing to reach us.

Unacceptable returns

If you return an item to us outside of the terms of our returns policy and your statutory rights do not apply we may not refund you. We will offer to return the item to you at your own expense, and will notify you of the cost. Once you have paid this sum we will return the item to you. If you choose not to have us return the item on these terms, send the item back to us again, or refuse to accept delivery, this will be deemed as an irreversible instruction for us to dispose of your goods without further notice. This will not constitute any admission that we have failed to honour in full our obligations to you and will not constitute any unlawful action against the goods.

 

Cancelling an order

Should you wish to cancel an order, in most cases you have the legal right to do this within 7 working days of receiving the order. However, this does not apply to certain products such as personalised items and perishable goods.

If you wish to cancel, you must inform us in writing (kit@ratrace.com), quoting your order number, within 7 working days following the day you received the goods and you must also take reasonable care of the goods.  What do we mean by reasonable care? We would consider that reasonable care has not been taken of the goods, for instance, if you have used them to an extent beyond what would be reasonable if examining them in a shop before purchase.

If you cancel an order we will require that you return the goods to us in good time, with the original packaging and at your own expense to the address below. If your require assistance in returning a large item we can offer a collection service. Please enquire as to its cost with our customer services team.
