Change of mind

If you change your mind after the purchase, once the payment is confirmed, your order cannot be cancelled and refunded. However we do understand that people change their mind. If the order has not been dispatched by the time we are contacted, we can void your order and issue a full store credit
to your account.

If the order has been dispatched, you are welcome to return the item to us within seven working days (starting from the first day you receive the item) for a full store credit to be issued, less any shipping costs.

Please note: all store credits are valid for six months from the date of issue.

 

Returning items

The item(s) must be returned to us in “as new” condition with all internal and external packaging, accessories, swing tags, labels and manuals.

When you return the item to us, it would be much appreciated if you could attach a piece of paper with our shipping address on it instead of writing on the box.

 

Damaged goods

If an item is damaged upon arrival you must contact us as soon as possible upon receiving your item.

Please email us along with a photo that clearly shows the product’s damage. We will send you a replacement along with a courier bag to return the damaged product.

Upon receiving the returned damaged goods we will determine whether our claim will be approved.

 

Incorrect items

If you have received incorrect items we are extremely sorry about our mistake and for any inconvenience this might have caused.

Please email us a picture of the order you have received to sales@onlinetools.co.nz and we will arrange for a prepaid courier ticket to be sent to you to return the item to us at our cost.

We will dispatch the correct item to you as soon as we have received the returned product. 

 

Missing items

If there are items missing from your order you will need to report it to us at sales@onlinetools.co.nz within five working days of receiving your order. We will review your order and send you the missing item if it is proved to be our mistake. We bear no responsibility for items not reported as missing within the five working days following delivery.

Please note: If you have ordered multiple items from us, orders may have been combined into the same box, so please check packages thoroughly before progressing.

Occasionally orders may be shipped as separate packages, the boxes will be labeled accordingly. If any boxes are missing from your delivery please contact us immediately.
