Returns & Replacements


We make every effort to pack paint carefully so that cans arrive with you safely. However, very occasionally, paint cans can be damaged by the courier during shipping. If paint has leaked from a can then we will normally replace it, free of charge on receipt from yourselves of photographic or other clear evidence of the damage. In the case of a partial spill we reserve the right to supply a replacement tin equivalent to the amount of paint lost. We do not, however, replace dented cans where no paint has leaked. We consider it to be the paint that we are selling to you, rather than the can


If within 7 days of receipt of your delivery you are unhappy with your purchase we will make reasonable attempts to put the matter right either by means of Credit – Refund or Exchange. We will accept the items you are unhappy about subject to the Distance Selling Regulation 2000 where you have the right to cancel the contract at any time up to 7 working days starting the day after delivery (7 day cooling off period). The goods must be returned back to us and the cost of delivery must be paid by you. Please note that products which have been tinted are defined as "Customised Products" under the Distance Selling Regulations and cannot be refunded

Goods must not have been used and be returned in the original packaging with all labels still intact/affixed. Goods must be in a resellable condition (we reserve the right to charge a fee to replace product packaging which is damaged or defaced). We recommend goods are sent back on a recorded insured delivery service and packaged in a secure/adequate manner as we cannot be liable for their loss or damage whilst in transit. You must inform us by email of your wish to cancel the contract to return goods for credit or exchange prior to return and within the 7 day cooling off period ending. The goods should be returned back to us and the cost of both inward and outward delivery will need to be paid by you.

Note: as there are no facilities for personal collections please do not attempt to collect an order or deliver a return.
