Terms & Conditions
Please read our terms & conditions below carefully before placing your order. By using this website and placing an order you agree to be bound by these terms. If you have any queries, please email us at email@example.com
For hire bookings, the hire start date is the date you wish to receive your delivery in the post. If you need your wetsuit in less than 5 days’ time from now, then the website won’t allow you to book a hire as we normally need a minimum of 5 days prior to your hire start date for processing and delivery. However, drop us an email and we will try to help. For shop orders, provided that your entire order is in stock, orders are usually shipped within three to five business days (Monday through Friday) of receiving your order, except for holiday or busy periods. We currently only ship within the UK . A £10.00 admin charge will be required to re-deliver any items in situations where the order was not delivered due to the fault of the customer. If this situation arises we will then contact you to arrange payment and re-delivery. These situations are defined as:
1 – The item was not signed for because the customer was not present at the requested delivery address.
2 – The item could not be delivered because the address provided by the customer was incorrect or incomplete. If you have any queries on the whereabouts of your delivery, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our friendly team will help you.
For orders made from the UK or the European Union, 20% VAT is still added and it is down to the individual to reclaim this back.
Please return your wetsuit to the below address: Returns Address: c/o Tri Wetsuit Hire, Co-Tribe, Meadowcroft House 182 Balcombe Road, Horley, RH6 9ER. Please include your Tri Wetsuit Hire Returns Form so that we can identify the wetsuit. If you have lost your form you can download a form on the Returns page. Please return the wetsuit clean, tidy and dry. The returned wetsuit must be with us on or before the date due back otherwise you may receive additional charges as described in the “Charges” section in the Terms & Conditions. Full season hires are due back on or before the 1st October.
In the unlikely event you feel that you have been delivered a damaged wetsuit and wish to return it, please email us at email@example.com within 14 days of receiving your order. You then have another 14 days to return the wetsuit to us for a full refund. Please return via recorded post. All our wetsuits are checked prior to dispatch for previous wear and any defects.
If you order the incorrect size or your wetsuit doesn’t fit and need to exchange please contact us to discuss. We operate a 14 day exchange policy. If you wish to change the size of your wetsuit once it has been delivered to you we do offer exchanges (subject to availability). Please note you will need to pay the new delivery charge fee. Payment must be made by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The replacement wetsuit (subject to availability) will not be issued until the original wetsuit has been received back and the new delivery charge fee payment has been cleared.
Cancellations & Refunds
We do not offer refunds on wetsuits returned early or unused. We do not accept any responsibility for circumstances in which the wetsuit hire is being cancelled. This includes: the wetsuit has not been used due to an event/trip being cancelled or postponed.
If you are interested in purchasing your hire wetsuit, drop us an email and we will be able to tell you if the wetsuit is available to purchase. If it is available, we will tell you the purchase price and then if you want to go ahead we will send you an invoice. If you are interested in purchasing, you do need to contact us before the end of your hire period to avoid incurring late charges.
