We at Clove Technology believe that you will be completely satisfied with your purchase. If however you think that you have received a faulty or incorrect product, or have simply decided that a product is not for you, we request that you call or e-mail us. In the case of faulty products we can often resolve the problem over the phone or by e-mail.
How to Book a Return?
Please note that a return authorisation form must be issued before any goods can be returned. In the event goods are returned to us without a valid return authorisation form they maybe refused.
If a product does need to be returned please contact us and we will create a return authorisation form. This will be sent to you by email and will contain a return reference number which needs to be stated when corresponding with us regarding your return.
Alternatively products can be booked in for inspection using your Clove Technology account. Login into your account by the “My Account” section - there is then an option to “Return Products”. Select the items to be returned by entering a tick in the relevant box on the following screen. A return authorisation form will then be issued to you by email.
General Return Policy
All returns are subject to inspection before any decision can be made with regard to replacement, refund or repair.
A copy of the return authorisation form should be enclosed to enable efficient processing and prevent any unnecessary delays.
If the returned product has been modified in any way (for example if a phone has been rooted or hacked) this will invalidate the return authorisation and the goods will be returned to the customer at their cost.
We are unable to accept the return of software which has been opened, installed or registered. In those circumstances no refund or replacement will be issued.
Please be aware that you are responsible for ensuring the safe delivery of returned items and any cost incurred by that return. We recommend that you use a service requiring a signature on delivery.
If we need to return the goods to you, we will not usually make any charge for delivery within the UK. However if the goods need to be sent outside the UK then we will need to charge the cost of carriage (a reduced rate will be applied rather than the standard delivery cost).
We reserve the right to levy a handling charge in the event of no fault being found with goods returned as faulty.
Goods should be returned to:
PO Box 4367
We respectfully ask that you follow the procedures below for your relevant type of return.
Incorrect Goods Received
In the rare situation that you have received the wrong goods please contact us as soon as possible - we are often able to dispatch the correct item(s) the same day, subject to stock availability.
You will be asked to return the incorrect goods to us and reasonable return shipping costs will be refunded on request.
Unwanted Goods – 7 Days Policy
At Clove Technology we operate a 7 days unwanted goods policy. If you find that a product is not right for you for whatever reason, then return can be requested within this period. Simply contact us within 7 working days from the date of dispatch of your goods.
A return authorisation form will then be issued and the products need to be returned within the following 7 days.
We do ask that the goods are returned to us in perfect “as new” condition. In the case of phones they should be returned with all accessories, documentation and packaging including the box inners.
The goods will be inspected upon receipt. In the situations where a refund is offered this will be for the goods only. The original shipping charge and the return shipping costs incurred will not be refunded.
Products returned as faulty are dealt with depending on the time within which they are returned. In the event that the goods are returned to us within 28 days of the dispatch date we can usually offer a replacement or a refund.
After the initial 28 days, faulty products are automatically forwarded onto the relevant manufacturer’s service centre for repair. Exceptions to this rule are accessories which can often be replaced within 1 year of the purchase date.
If you are returning a phone to us within the initial 28 days we would ask that it is returned with all accessories, documentation and packaging including the box inners. Failure to return phones in an acceptable condition may result in them being automatically sent for repair rather than being replaced or refunded.
Faulty products which are returned more than 28 days after the date of dispatch will automatically be forwarded onto the manufacturer’s service centre for repair.
We request that phones returned for repair include at least the battery and back cover so that the phone can be suitably tested. If a fault might be related to any accessory, for example a charging problem, it is recommended that the relevant item is also returned. Any additional accessories returned will be securely held whilst the manufacturer is repairing the unit.
You as the customer will be liable for return shipping costs to us and also the return shipping cost back to you after the phone has been repaired.
Non Warranty Repair
Products which are returned to us as non warranty repairs (or items which have been found to be physically damaged) will be forwarded to the relevant manufacturer’s service centre for assessment.
With non warranty repairs the customer is liable for all shipping and repair costs.
Repair quotations which are accepted by a customer need to be paid in full before authorisation can be provided to proceed with the repair.
Most manufacturers charge for the assessment of phones. In the event that a repair quotation is rejected, the assessment charge needs to be paid by the customer before the manufacturer’s service centre will return the phone.
We have provided details of manufacturer contact numbers below as they are usually able to offer the best advice and assistance with regard to technical queries.
