At featureDECO, we genuinely care about your convenience and want to spare you unnecessary trouble. Therefore, we highly advise against attempting to assemble any goods that you suspect may be or have already reported broken or faulty. By refraining from assembly, you can avoid the inconvenience of disassembling and reassembling the product. We kindly request your understanding in this matter.
featureDECO cannot be held liable for any additional surcharges you may have paid to outsource someone else to assemble the goods on your behalf. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and want to ensure a friendly and empathetic resolution.
It is essential for us to emphasize that returning the faulty unit in its original packaging is crucial to initiate the replacement process, as per our terms and conditions. We genuinely appreciate your understanding and cooperation in following this procedure. Here are a few reasons why we recommend not attempting to assemble or use any product that has been reported as faulty:
Safety Precautions: Your safety is our top priority. Assembling a broken or faulty item can potentially lead to accidents or injuries. By avoiding assembly, you can minimize any risks associated with using a defective product.
Warranty Coverage: Returning the faulty unit in its original packaging allows us to quickly identify and verify the reported issue. This ensures that the problem falls under the terms of our warranty, enabling us to promptly provide you with a replacement. By adhering to this process, we aim to resolve the situation efficiently and hassle-free.
We want to emphasize the importance of returning any faulty units with their original packaging, particularly as we are utilizing third-party couriers. Please take note of the following information, as it plays a crucial role in ensuring a smooth and efficient resolution:
At featureDECO, we understand that issues may arise with our products, and we are committed to addressing them promptly. Returning the faulty units in their original packaging is of utmost importance for several reasons, especially when using third-party couriers. Here's why we strongly recommend this practice:
Protection during Transit: The original packaging provides the optimal level of protection for the item during transit. It is designed to safeguard the product from any additional potential damage that may occur during transportation, especially when handled by external courier services. By returning the faulty unit in its original packaging, you help minimize the risk of further damage during transit, ensuring a smoother claims process.
Verification of Condition: The original packaging assists in verifying the condition of the returned item. It provides essential information about the product's original state, including any signs of mishandling or external damage. This enables us to differentiate between transit-related issues and pre-existing faults, ensuring a fair assessment and appropriate resolution.
Claims and Insurance: When working with third-party couriers, adhering to their specific guidelines for returns is crucial. They often require the original packaging to process claims and insurance. By complying with these requirements and returning the faulty unit with its packaging, we can expedite the claims process and work collaboratively with the courier to resolve the situation effectively.
By following these guidelines and returning the faulty unit with its original packaging, you significantly contribute to a smoother resolution process, reducing any potential delays or complications.
We kindly request and appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering this matter to these guidelines.
Please ensure you provide evidence/images on how you received the pallet or goods showing all defects that are visible at this stage. We request to take a photo of the overall product and a close up where the issue has occured. This will then help us quickly identify and resolve the issue that has risen.
Once we have received and acquired all necessary information from the customer, we will endeavour to source and send out a replacement set or part as quickly as possible.

This process can take from 6-13+ weeks, but we will always endeavour to go above and beyond to provide an excellent service, to your satisfaction. Subsequent, once provided available replacement sets or parts are ready for dispatch prior to inspection, we will contact the customer again to arrange a suitable delivery date or collection.
