International Returns

Please refer to all allowances and restrictions above however as the postage/carriage of items will pass through the customs process it is advisable to contact the sales office by email, or by telephone, +44 1684 212882 for assistance.

If you choose to return items without contacting us first you must state on all carrier documentation the reason for return as either ‘for repair’, ‘warranty item’, or ‘return’ to avoid unnecessary customs charges. Any charges incurred by Vintage Supplies will be deducted from the credit note issued.
