Returns Policy / Requests
We know that you will be pleased with your purchases from Tool Master. However, there may be occasions when you will need to return items to us. If you wish to do so, please thoroughly read our returns policy below and complete the returns form at the bottom of the page.
Important – The cost of returning the item is to be paid by the purchaser. We may reimburse this at our sole discretion.
Items Damaged in Transit
If any items were damaged in transit, we ask that you report it to us as soon as you discover the damage, within 24 hours of receiving the goods. No claims can be entertained after this period. If the items are visibly damaged on receipt, please sign the carrier’s delivery note as ‘DAMAGED’, or refuse the goods for return to us. If you do not have time to check the goods upon delivery, it is best to sign for the goods as ‘UNCHECKED’. We advise that items should be returned with their original packaging complete with all accessories and documentation. Once received back into our warehouse, we’ll issue a replacement or full refund to you via your original payment method including (if approved) any reasonable return carriage costs.
Items Faulty on Arrival
If your items are faulty on arrival, you have 30 calendar days in which to inform us of the fault. We advise that items should be returned with their original packaging complete with all accessories and documentation. Once we have verified the fault, we’ll issue a replacement or full refund to you via your original payment method including (if approved) any reasonable return carriage costs. We test returned items, and if a returned item is found not to be faulty by our technicians we will return the item to you. In this instance you will be liable for the return carriage; the items will not be re-sent until we have received payment equal to the initial carriage cost.
Items Faulty in Warranty Period
If any of your purchases develop a fault, and it’s more than 30 calendar days since receipt, then provided your item is within its warranty period, you are entitled to a warranty repair. In some cases, manufacturers provide a specialist full on-site service and/or telephone help facilities for your convenience which we recommend you use in order to correct the fault quickly. Please note that in some cases it may be disproportionately costly to repair the goods, and so where this is the case, then you will receive replacement goods. Please note that in this case you will be liable for the cost of the return to us, we will cover the cost of sending the item back to you once repaired or replaced.
If you change your mind
If you have simply changed your mind about any item ordered and you wish to return it, then in line with the Consumer Contracts Regulations you can do so provided you inform us of your decision within 30 working days. This period begins after you have taken delivery of the goods. The item must not be used and must be ‘as new’ when returned to us. We reserve the right to issue partial refunds, restocking fees or to refuse a return where items are not in ‘as new’ condition. Once you’ve informed us that you wish to return goods under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, you have 30 calendar days to do so, at your own expense. Goods are refunded within 14 days, we’ll issue a refund for the product only to your original payment method.
It is recommended that you use a tracked postal service as until the item is received by our Returns Department you remain responsible for the item. A suggested service for low value items (Under $50) is the Postal Services, for higher value items (Over $50) you may wish to consider using a courier.
