All risk in the products you order (including risk of loss and/or damage to the products) shall pass to you when they are delivered to the delivery address specified in your order.
Notice of damage, defect, non-delivery, or incorrect delivery
You should check all products you receive against your order.

We reserve the right to inspect any product reported as faulty before refund or replacement.
Your right to cancel
Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013) (“CCR”) you have a right to cancel all or part of your contract at any time up to 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods, without giving any reason. With us, you have 30 calendar days to return your order. Please see our returns policy for more information on this.
Your right to cancellation does not apply to goods made to your specification, including Design Your Own Crutches and Design Your Own Walking Sticks.
In the event of a cancellation you will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods. You can choose to return the goods yourself (after advising cancellation) or arrange for Cool Crutches & Walking Sticks to collect the goods (when advising cancellation).
If you choose to return any items to us, you must do so within 30 calendar days of receiving the item. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage to them in transit and, for this reason, we recommend that you use a recorded delivery service (i.e. tracked and insured).

If you are returning items we must be notified before return. The address of our distribution centre for returns is:
Pick Pack Despatch
Unit 8 Wates Way

On receipt of returned goods, Cool Crutches will reimburse you within 14 days. Any paid delivery charge will be included in your refund. Please note the delivery charge refund will be to the value of Standard Delivery Cost (any additional delivery costs paid for e.g. urgent delivery will not be refunded). You must take reasonable care of the goods while in your possession and we reserve the right to reduce the value of the refund if returned goods show evidence of use beyond the handling necessary to see whether the goods are as expected.
Any refunds given by us will be made to the debit/credit card account, PayPal Account or Klarna (as applicable) provided when you placed your order. We may need to contact you for your credit card details in order to make the refund.
Where we deliver products to a third party in accordance with your order, you will only be able to exercise this cancellation right if you can arrange for us to collect the goods (or return the goods to us).
