The reason for this is couriers will not pick up items unless they are packed adequately in the original packaging. Alternative packaging will be sufficient as long as it provides the same protection to the goods. However, we strongly advise you use the original packaging.
When returning goods to the manufacturers they also insist on products being returned with all the original packaging otherwise they may reject the product. This will limit the amount of damage a product could endure through transportation. *The customer who has ordered the goods must sign for all goods on delivery*. If a delay of more than 30 days occurs, the consumer will be notified by us of the expected delivery date, however they may cancel the order and we will refund any money paid by the customer for the goods should the new delivery date be unacceptable.
If a delivery attempt has failed, other than the Couriers error, a failed delivery charge will occur. This is excluded if goods are refused, as there were obvious signs of damage through transit. This does not affect the consumer's statutory rights.
Please note if goods are not received within 5 working days of the goods being despatched you must notify RGB Direct within this time period. This is purely for security purposes to protect us and indeed the customer directly. * On certain deliveries we may ask for a manual verification swipe of your Credit / Debit card which was used for purchase *. This is purely for Security reasons.
