All items returned to DV247 must have a returns authorisation. Any goods sent back without firstly obtaining a returns authorisation could be subject to significant delay.
To obtain a returns authorisation:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to reply within 3 working days, between 8:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday (except public holidays). Emails sent over the weekend will be answered during the following week..
Please Include the following details:
- Order Number
- Serial Number (if the unit is faulty)
- A detailed fault description - this will speed up the process in the event of an item requiring repair or replacement
Requests without this information will take longer to process and will result in delays to refunds, replacements or repairs.
Goods should be returned and re-packed in the original packaging as received complete 'AS SOLD' and in 'AS NEW' condition (for example, if the packaging has been opened to examine the product/s you must have done so without damaging the packaging or the product/s in any way).. The condition of the goods will remain the customer's responsibility until goods have been booked in and assessed by DV247.
Any return labels should not be placed directly on the item packaging. Please wrap any items to be returned in a protective layer and place any labels on this outer packaging.

CANCELLATION AND RETURNS POLICY
- 1 All goods and services are sold in accordance with The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (SI 2000 No.2334). This regulation essentially ensures that the consumer is given clear information about the goods and services the supplier is offering, is provided with an order confirmation via email and has a cancellation period of 30 days from the day after the date of delivery - during which time the consumer may cancel the contract by notifying the supplier of their request to cancel either in writing or by email.
- 2 If you wish to cancel your order during the cancellation period set out in clause 1, please notify us in writing by letter, fax or by email. A telephone call is not sufficient unless both you and DV247 agree otherwise.
- 3 Once you have notified us that you wish to cancel the contract with the cancellation period, either before or after you have received the goods, you should return the goods to us within a reasonable time period and take reasonable care in doing so. The risk and cost of returning the goods to us shall be borne by you unless you have notified us that the goods are faulty and the fault is verified by us. If you fail to return the goods to us, you must make them available for collection upon notification from us that we intend to collect the goods.
- 4 Upon cancellation of the contract we will credit your account with a full refund of the money paid to us, including the cost of delivery of the goods to you, as soon as possible and in any event not later than 30 days after receipt of the notice of cancellation. If you do not return the goods or do not pay the costs of delivery to us, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct cost of recovering the goods from the amount of the refund.
- 5 Goods should be returned and re-packed in the original packaging as received complete 'AS SOLD' and in 'AS NEW' condition (for example, if the packaging has been opened to examine the product/s you must have done so without damaging the packaging or the product/s in any way).
- 6 You have a duty to take reasonable care of the products while in your possession and during the cancellation period to maintain them in the condition in which they were supplied by us. If goods are damaged or your use of the goods has gone beyond your right to reasonably inspect and assess the goods, DV247 reserves the right to seek recompense.
- 7 The rights to return the goods to us as referred to in clause 3 will not apply in the following circumstances: -
- 7.1 in the case of copyrighted goods (all software, media and sample CDs) where the packaging has been unsealed and/or the product has been registered.
- 7.2 for Health and Safety reasons to products such as microphones, headphones, earphones, in-ear monitoring devices and brass and woodwind mouthpieces that have been used or where the hygienic seal has been removed or broken and
- 7.3 to any products that we have made to your specification or customised specifically for you
- 8 If a fault should occur with your product outside the cancellation period and within the 12 month manufacturers' warranty period, you may wish to take your product to any manufacturer’s authorised repair centre (with a copy of your online receipt from us) or you may wish to return the product/s to our returns department, with a copy of your online receipt and a full written description of the fault. Our returns department can send your faulty product/s to the manufacturer or authorised service centre on your behalf. If the product is found to be faulty we will repair it free of charge and return the product/s to you. If we or the manufacturer are unable to repair your product within a reasonable period of time then we can offer you the choice of a full refund or to supply you an alternative product equivalent
