On some occasions the outer packaging on heavier items may become damaged during transit. In most cases this will have no impact on the goods themselves and this means that the packaging will have served its purpose in protecting your order. In the extremely unlikely event that you receive a parcel which is obviously damaged beyond all levels of acceptability, please refuse delivery and contact us via email@example.com or call our customer service team on 0845 643 6409 stating the reason for refusal.

11. WEEE Policy (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations
As an environmentally conscious online retailer, we are committed to offering our clients the opportunity to recycle electrical goods in line with WEEE regulations. These state that each EU Member State now has a legal obligation to minimise the disposal of WEEE in landfill sites. The aim of the WEEE regulations is to address the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment when it reaches the end of its life.
11.1 What can you do: Reuse & Recycle
We all have a responsibility to contributing to the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of WEEE under these Regulations.
11.1.1 Reuse: If your old machine is still working, do you know somebody who would like to use it? There are many organisations such as schools, clubs, residential homes etc. who might be very happy to use your old equipment and give it a new home.
11.1.2 Recycle: If your old equipment is no longer useful to you or anyone you know, please recycle it whenever possible. If you are unable to give your item a new home, there are lots of local organisations available that will reuse, recycle or repair electrical and electronic equipment for charitable schemes.
11.2 Potential effects of not committing to WEEE regulations: Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in the electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination which can lead to negative effects on human health and the environment. Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after 13th August 2005 should display the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. The purpose of the symbol is to encourage householders to dispose of their WEEE separately from household waste.
11.3 GymWorld Fitness Ltd WEEE take back policy: In the unlikely event that you are unable to find a new home for your electrical items, we will gladly manage its disposal in line with the WEEE regulations for you. We offer this disposal service to clients on a like for like basis meaning that if for example you purchase a treadmill from us, we will ensure that your old treadmill is disposed of correctly and in line with the WEEE regulations. All we ask is that you make arrangements to return your old ‘like for like’ item to us and we will ensure that it is handled in the correct environmentally aware way and that you return the items to us after obtaining a WEEE Returns Authorisation number by calling Thomas Lees on 0161 660 9083

(Please note that we are unable to accept any responsibility for returns received without a Return Authorisation Number being issued first by our client services team).

Please note the following exceptions to our 14 days money back guarantee
- chest straps, gum shields and some other items cannot be returned to us unless they are faulty and have been issued a valid returns authorisation number.
- installed and assembled machines are not covered by our 14 day money back guarantee.

3. Contact our client services team via email email@example.com or on 0845 094 8584 during working hours (9.30am – 6pm on Mon - Fri) to inform us of your wish to return a product under our money back guarantee scheme.
4. You will receive a return authorisation number and a returns form.
5. We aim to issue refunds within a few days, but your refund will be issued within 30 days of being notified of a cancellation under the Money Back Guarantee.
6. Please note that you are under a statutory duty of care to look after the unwanted goods in your possession and any products that are to be returned under our money back guarantee policy must be kept in an 'as new' condition.
If you are returning a product under the 14 days money back policy you are responsible for the cost of returning the goods. Please note that large bulky items may cost in excess of £200 to return depending on the carrier you choose.
Items Delivered Incorrectly Or With Faults
Any goods delivered that are faulty or were delivered as substitutes without your explicit consent may be returned for a replacement or refund within 10 calendar days of the receipt of the goods from us.
You should call our client services team via email firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0845 094 8584 during working hours (9.30am – 6pm on Mon - Fri) to inform us of your wish to return a product and the reasons for the return.
You will be issued with a Return Authorisation Number and our service agent will discuss the return of the product by you or through collection arranged by us. You will be issued with a refund or replacement or an alternative, at your choice, following inspection of the issue upon the return of the product.
Whilst unfortunate and rare, products do occasionally develop faults after a period of use. Unless otherwise stated, all of the products sold by us carry a manufacturer's guarantee of at least one year (or 6 months for table games). Items over 14 days old that have a warranty requirement are subject to the manufacturer warranty terms. Each manufacturer's policy and process in respect of product guarantees varies and as such we request that you contact our client services team via email email@example.com or during working hours (9.30am – 6pm on Mon - Fri) for information on the specific manufacturer’s process for managing warranty issues.
*Please note that the 0845 number is charged at standard local rates from a landline. Charges from mobile operators may vary.
