If you make a claim during the first 6 months, and we reject it, it's up to us to prove the goods were of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose at time of sale. After 6 months, it's up to you to show that the product had a fault or defect when it was sold. If you ordered via telephone or internet you have the right under distance selling regulations to cancel your order and receive a refund for home delivered items under our JML Guarantee of 30-day money back guarantee.
