Returning a Home Delivery item:After they have been made aware of your intention to return your product a member of our customer service team will provide you with a returns number and arrange a suitable date for its collection. You will then need to securely repackage your item(s) into their original packaging in time for the collection slot you have agreed with us. If you are unable to repackage your product into its original packaging there will be a charge to supply replacement packaging.

Once the item(s) arrive with Raleigh they will be inspected and your refund will be issued within 3 working days.
Returning a Click & Collect item:Our Customer services team will need to be made aware of your intention to return the item(s) that you have ordered via Click & Collect so that we can provide you with a returns number. It is important that you contact Raleigh directly to organise your return before contacting the store you selected for Click & Collect delivery to ensure that your refund is issued successfully.
You will need to return the bike to the store which you originally collected your item(s ) from. Raleigh will then liaise with our partner dealer who will repackage the product(s). Raleigh will arrange collection from our partner dealer the next working day and your refund will be processed within 3 working days of the product(s) arriving with Raleigh.

The goods should be unused, in a saleable condition and in their original packaging with all labels still attached. Ensure you do not affix any labels or tape directly to the product packaging, only the external shipping packaging. Raleigh is entitled to refuse the return or deduct any reduced value because of the product not being in the above condition.
Faulty items can be returned within 30 days of delivery free of charge. A full refund will be issued but only after examination in our warehouse to validate the product is faulty. The refund will be issued within 10 working days after the fault verification.

Once the returned product has been returned to Raleigh it will be inspected by our service centre to ensure the product has returned in reasonable condition and has only sustained reasonable use. Assuming that the returned product meets this criteria a full refund will be processed. However in extreme cases where the returned product has sustained significant damage or has been returned in an unacceptable condition charges will be applied to your refund. These charges will be decided on a case by case basis dependent on the severity of condition. In this case we will contact you to make you aware of any charges that have been applied to your refund [before] your refund is processed.
Additional costs will be incurred if the product is returned without all of its original components. In this case your monies will be refunded less the cost of the missing components and associated labour charges.
Finance OrdersIf you have placed your order using V12 Finance you will need to contact the Raleigh Customer Service team to advise that you would like to cancel your purchase. Raleigh will then be able to organise the collection of your product and the cancellation of your finance agreement with V12. V12 will then cancel any payments which may have been made directly to them in the form of deposits etc.
Please note that a partial return on your finance order will not be possible where this will result in the value of the remaining products being under the minimum threshold for finance which currently stands at £350. Where a partial return will result in this situation you will either be required to return all products from the original order or arrangements can be made for you to pay the appropriate amount for the products that you wish to keep via Credit or Debit card in advance.
