Faulty Items:
All warranties for all electrical items are invalidated if not installed by a fully qualified professional electrician. We cannot accept the return of any item deemed faulty unless it has been installed by a fully qualified professional electrician registered to one the UK's five trade bodies: NICEIC, NAPIT, ECA, ELECSA, JIB.
In order to verify the proper installation of the item and the integrity of the electrical system into which it was installed, including circuit protection devices and fuse board, we may need to speak to the installing electrician. For this reason we require that the customer provides full contact details of the installing electrician at the point of return, including the trade body to which they are registered and their registration number.
We cannot process any refund or replacement for a faulty item without this information. Gil-Lec Ltd will not cover the cost for installation of replacement items.
Damaged Items:
Please notify us of any items damaged on delivery within five working days of delivery. Regrettably we cannot accept the return of any item after this period. Please note that we are not liable for damage incurred by 3rd party couriers. Items that have been forwarded on from the original DPD delivery destination will not be covered. Any agreed returns should be either sent directly to the manufacturer or to us under agreement at the customer's expense.
Unwanted Stock Items:
Customers in the UK have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item within fourteen working days from the day after the date the item is delivered. This applies only to unopened items in their original, sealed packaging. If you need to return an unwanted item please notify us by email of your intention to return and make sure the item ships within 14 working days of notifying us. Returned items that ship after this time will not be refundable.
Customers returning unwanted goods can use the shipping link provided or at their own cost using a 'signed for' carrier service. Please note that oversized items that are not covered by the shipping link will need to be returned at the customer's cost. We are unable to exchange items that are not damaged, defective or incorrect after these fourteen days, nor if they have been used or removed from their original packaging. Upon inspection the sale will be credited less our initial carriage cost and the cost of the returns shipping if used, the cost of which is dependant on the weight of the package and can be clarified upon request. Please note that some items may incur a handling/re-stocking charge if returned.
Our Returns address is:
Unit 34 Chess Business Park
Moor Road
