From April 2020 onwards PayPal no longer refund fees taken if orders are refunded and thus we have had to pass this onto our customers who place orders and then wish to cancel them, this does not include any situations whereby we need to give a refund due to faulty items etc. This includes orders placed and then cancelled before shipping under all circumstances. Be sure that you want the items you order, before you order them.
You should get a refund within 14 days of either the trader getting the goods back, or you providing evidence of having returned the goods (for example, a proof of postage receipt from the post office), whichever is the sooner. A deduction can be made if the value of the goods has been reduced as a result of you handling the goods more than was necessary. The extent to which you can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop.
Your right to cancel an order for goods starts the moment you place your order and ends 14 days from the day you receive your goods. If your order consists of multiple goods, the 14 day period runs from when you get the last of the batch. This 14 day period is the time you have to decide whether to cancel, you then have a further 14 days to actually send the goods back.
These cancellation rights are more generous than if you bought goods or services from a high street shop. For details on your rights when you buy from a high street shop, read the which consumer guide here for further details on the Consumer Rights Act.
The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 gives you key cancellation rights when you enter into contracts at a distance over the phone, online, from a catalogue or face-to-face with someone who has visited your home, for instance.
MAKING A PURCHASE
It is vital that when buying an airsoft rifle, pistol or any other Realistic Imitation Firearm that you provide the information required to prove that you are genuine Airsoft Skirmisher. This is to comply with the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2007. Each order processed that requires cancellation due to the appropriate information not being provided will result in a £15 cancelation, admin and refund fee.
All images on the site are as up to date as possible but occasionally manufacturers change colour schemes slightly and images may be out of date. If in doubt please contact us to check that images are up to date.
When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order along with the options for making payments which must be made in full at the time the order is placed.
SHIPPING AND HANDLING
PLEASE NOTE: It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure the legality of importation into their own country. Dave's Custom Airsoft does not accept any responsibility whatsoever if the goods ordered are seized by Customs officials or airport authorities in ours or any other country. If goods are seized, destroyed, damaged through inspection or confiscated in any instance, we accept no responsibility and will offer no form of refund or credit. If the goods are returned to us by the seizing authority in the same condition as they were sent, we will refund your payment for the goods (not the shipping cost) less any fines or charges imposed by that authority for the handling and return of said goods. We will issue the refund only WHEN the goods are received and checked by ourselves.
IMPORTANT: All deliveries must be checked by the receiver (customer) before signing for them. If the package is damaged in anyway either refuse to accept delivery or ask the delivery person to check the contents with you. You should only sign for the goods if you are satisfied. In any other circumstances, please sign the package receipt as "not checked". If a customer fails to follow this and a package is signed for as received in good condition. We may find it difficult (or impossible) to claim compensation in this case.
