Returns Policy

Returns Policy

 

Lee Warehouse will accept returns for faulty items, in line with the Consumer Guarantees Act, so long as the product default or defect is reported as soon as it occurs. 

 Claims will not be valid if:

  • The product has been used for any purposes for which it is not intended
  • The purchaser has intentionally or unintentionally broken the product or lost/damaged some of its parts
  • The product has been modified
  • Warranties do not cover reasonable wear and tear

Consumer Guarantees Act 1993

The Consumer Guarantee Act sets out minimum standards for goods sold by Lee Warehouse. If goods sold are not of good quality or are faulty, the customer has the right to a repair, replacement, or a refund at the retailer’s discretion.

Fair Trading Act 1986

The Fair Trading Act is designed to protect the customer from being misled, either intentionally or unintentionally. This applies to all aspects of the promotion and sale of goods and services including pricing, where the product was made, where the product is from, the meeting of New Zealand safety standards, availability of products in-store and the sales techniques used. The Commerce Commission enforces the Fair Trading Act 1986.

Note: In some cases, customers will be responsible for return shipping. Please contact us to find out more. If you are shipping an item over $75, we recommend using a trackable shipping service, or purchasing shipping insurance. We take no responsibility for items lost in transit to us.

We are happy for our customers to return valid items to us in person at our Auckland store. Please contact us for more information. 

 

Return process exceptions

Please allow up to 3-5 business days for your return or exchange to be processed once we have received it.  In most cases, your refund will be applied to back to the original form of payment used for the purchase, unless otherwise agreed. We cannot process refunds from our in-store EFTPOS machine. 

Original shipping charges incurred on your purchase aren’t refundable as part of your return or exchange.

If you have any questions, or have received an incorrect or damaged item please immediately.

To claim a refund for an item purchased with a credit card or finance card (personal loan), you must check that you have met the above returning conditions. 

Late or missing refunds 

If you have not received your refund within the specified timeframe, please double check the bank details you provided us are correct, before contacting your credit card company. You may also want to contact your bank, which may apply its own additional payment wait times.

If you’ve done all of this and are still unclear as to why you have not yet received your refund, please contact us at support@leewarehouse.co.nz
