Returns Procedure

Every item of P.P.E. must be traceable back to the manufacturer in case of failure or product recall.  At UK Rigging we have several stages involved with the traceability of P.P.E. gear.

UK Rigging send out a certificate of conformity with each P.P.E. order that we receive.  This certificate of conformity is a guarantee to our customers that the equipment supplied conforms to the various regulations and we cannot send out this certificate in good faith if we know that the goods have previously left the shop.

However, we are willing to accept returns on the following conditions:

  • It is your responsibility to ensure that the goods reach us safely and in satisfactory condition.
  • We recommend that you take out insurance cover and that the goods should be sent by recorded or registered post or with a reputable carrier.
  • We cannot accept liability for goods that are damaged in transit on return to us and would recommend that you ensure that the goods are sufficiently packaged to prevent this happening.
  • Once the item reaches us, it will be subject to a full PPE inspection by a certified person. This is at a cost of £10 per item, which will be taken out of your refund amount.
  • If this PPE inspection successfully re-certifies the goods for sale, i.e. they are found to be in full, safe, working order, with tags and safety information still attached, then you will be issued a refund, minus the inspection fee, for your item.
  • If the PPE inspection is unsuccessful, then you can either pay for the goods to be returned to you, or collect the item in person.

We will send you a returns ID; this must be clearly labelled on the packaging.

The item(s) must be returned to:

UK Rigging,
110 Bridgeman Street,
BL3 6BS.

Any refunds owed will be processed during office hours and should be in the customers bank account within 10 working days.

Refunds for Damaged, Faulty or Incorrect Goods

If the goods are incorrect, i.e. do not correspond with the description of the ordered goods you should e-mail details to shop@ukrigging.net within 7 days of delivery. We will arrange a collection from your delivery address, please ensure that goods are packaged securely, ideally in their original packaging. A full refund or suitable replacement will only be issued on incorrect goods if they are returned complete, unused, unopened / with tags attached and in re-saleable condition.

If you receive goods which have been damaged during transit, please keep the packaging and e-mail details to shop@ukrigging.net within 7 days of delivery. Where possible, please take photos of the damage to support our claim with the courier.

Once you receive your order, please check that all goods are in satisfactory working condition. Goods that are found to be damaged or faulty when they are delivered should be reported immediately to shop@ukrigging.net or by calling 01204 391343. Issues must be reported within 7 days of receiving your order. We will arrange collection of the item(s) in question. Once they have been returned to the shop and inspected, we will replace/refund the items as necessary.

For faulty items returned later than 7 days after delivery, e.g. for a warranty claim, you will need to arrange returning the item to the shop yourself. Please contact shop@ukrigging.net for a returns number before sending. Once we have received the item, we will inspect it and contact the relevant supplier. In some instances (i.e. if we cannot fully test the goods) we may need to send them to the manufacturer for testing / their opinion.

If a warranty claim is successful, then we will issue a repair or replacement as necessary. However, if the goods are tested and found to be in working order, the fault was caused by misuse, or the goods are beyond their reasonable life expectancy then they will be returned to you and you will be responsible for the cost of carriage.  We reserve the right to charge a reasonable handling charge if the goods prove to be non-defective after testing.
