Our Free returns address from Royal Mail only covers loss of items up to £250. If you would like to cover your item for more than £250, please select your own courier to do so. Any goods shipped to you must be examined upon receipt. Please contact us immediately (within 3 days) if you have received your item damaged by the courier. Once your device is repaired it will be posted out the same day via one of our trusted couriers. Our couriers state that they aim to deliver the next working day. However, in certain circumstances a delay may be caused so could take up to 3 working days.

Please take your packaged device to your local post office (please refrain from taking directly to the post box, as this may cause delays in the service). Please make sure you get a receipt with a tracking number from the Post Office so you can track your parcel. Failure to get a tracking number will mean your parcel cannot be tracked.

As we provide our own free shipping service we will not reimburse any additional shipping payments made by the customer.

In the very rare occasion, the device is lost in the post, we will need a copy of the receipt with tracking information (number/barcode) and the original receipt of the purchased item to make a claim. Please note this may take up to 28 days to be processed before any further action can be taken.

When sending your device, if you choose to include separate parts, you are sending these at your own risk and we will not be held responsible if these parts go missing before your package is delivered to us. Please ensure the parts are well sealed and wrapped so nothing goes missing. When your package arrives with us we log in all the separate parts we receive, which will be noted.

As it is a signed for service, we are unable to leave with a neighbour or in a 'safe' place the delivery would certainly need to be singed for. Once your order has been dispatched, we are unable to change the address.

When needing to change address, whether it be on your additional payment or original order, please contact us before the item is in the process of being dispatched, you can do this by contacting us via email with details of your new address at sales@imperialphones.co.uk.

4.1.3 Failed Delivery Attempt
In the event of a failed delivery, depending on the circumstances and the carrier's policy, the customer may receive a note of passage such as a ‘while you were out card’ – this is the methods used by royal mail, these items will require collection after the initial delivery attempt. On the reverse of the card there will be opening and closing times for you to collect your parcel the very next working day (that’s If they are closed – sometimes can collect the same day).

4.1.4 Late Delivery
At times a parcel may not be delivered within the expected time allotment or stated delivery time frame given by the carrier and/or Imperial Phones and the delay extends too long we would expect the Customer to contact Imperial Phones in order to open an inquiry to establish the whereabouts of the parcel, i.e. the parcel may be lost/stolen/missing.
Please do note that in the case of delivery a working day is classed as any day other than weekends or public holidays.
4.1.5 Loss of the Parcel
Should such a situation arise, Imperial Phones is compelled to respect the time-frames set by the carriers in regard to declaring the loss of the package, processing a claim with the courier and then refunding the shipment or replacing the item for the customer. Hence, the Customer is also bound to the same time-frames:

In order for Imperial Phones to officially declare a parcel lost, the Customer has 2 days to declare the loss of a parcel in the UK or starting from the date he or she received the shipment confirmation e-mail. Beyond this time period, no claim will be accepted. *Please note that for International shipments this will be extended in accordance with the courier service you select, we require notification within 2 days of the delivery estimation date.

Should the parcel be declared as lost within the above mentioned time, Imperial Phones will attend to filing a claim with the carrier and may eventually ask the Customer for additional documents to complete the composition of the file's content. The Customer will then need to send the information as soon as possible.
The final response related to claims is given by the carrier within a one to three-week period. The nature of the response can be one of two types: either the parcel is found and then sent back to the Customer by standard procedure, or the parcel is declared as lost by the carrier and Imperial Phones informs the Customer. In this case, and in accordance with the customer's wishes, Imperial Phones can make a second shipment of the order or proceed by fully refunding the Customer for the total amount paid.
In the event of loss, Imperial Phones will send the customer a (P101) Non-Receipt Declaration form, which will be used as part of the investigation process. This form will be a declaration of non-receipt and should further investigation and/or GPS data prove that the item has been delivered successfully to the correct location then this will be used as part of a legal case towards the recipient. This may or may not involve a police investigation and will not be limited to the purchaser of the goods but also the individual/individuals who signed/received the goods at the specified delivery location. Please contact our customer service team to enquire further about this form in the event of any lost goods. Timeframes for completion and replacement will vary on a case to case basis.

4.1.6 International Customers (Outside UK)
For customers outside the UK, you will be required to arrange your own courier to get the device to us and pay an additional fee to get the device sent back to you using a secured international postal service, prices will vary depending on the destination.
Our free return postage label does not apply to international customers (Outside of the UK) if required to return your item, you shall need to arrange your own courier to return the item to us. The courier charge will not be reimbursed.

10. Imperial Phones Refund and Exchange Policy

We will do our utmost to ensure that you are happy and satisfied with your purchase from Imperial Phones, however we understand that at times items may not be as expected and should you wish to return an item, you may do so within the timescales and conditions outlined below.
10.1.1 Imperial Phones Distance Selling Regulations
All online purchases are subject to distance selling regulations; this allows Customers to purchase an item from our website and then return the item should it not be required and/or not expected for full refund within 30 Calendar days of receipt. To enable this, we require the item to be returned with a proof of purchase, in an resalable condition ( the device needs to be unused, with no personal data loaded onto it and in identical condition to the condition of your original purchase) and in accordance with the Imperial Phones returns policy.

If you are returning a product, you must confirm your order number or supply proof of purchase.

If we are unable to verify your proof of purchase, we regret that we will be unable to issue a refund or exchange. Your statutory rights are unaffected.

If you choose to return an item, please do take care of it whilst it is in your possession. Please return your unused product; with the original packaging, accessories and manuals. Promotional bundles must be returned in their entirety in order for this to be refunded. See below for exclusions:

Distance Selling Regulations specifically excludes the following:

- Opened entertainment products (computer software, movies, music, video games, memory cards and USBs) as these will be deemed used;
- Products purchased with a subscription contract (unless purchased at distance, where you must inform us of your intent to return within 14 Calendar days)
- Mobile top-up cards;
- Items ordered especially for you (i.e. from the manufacturer)
- Any items that we have had to modify to fit in with your installation requirements (e.g. items that have had holes drilled through them).

In the event that the services are provided with your agreement prior to the end of this 30 Calendar day cancellation period, you lose your cancellation rights from the moment that the services are provided to you.

If you return a used item, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or reduce the amount of money refunded for goods returned which show evidence of use beyond the handling necessary to see whether the goods are as expected or satisfactory.

For all goods purchased online and returned within 30 days we would expect all goods to be returned in a resalable condition (identical condition as to what you received from your initial order so if returning a ‘excellent’ condition the phone must be returned in ‘excellent’ condition) and the goods must not have been used. This would require product seals, packaging and contents to be in-tact. We do understand that box seals in ‘new’ condition would need to be broken to assess the item however we would request that due care and attention is taken not to damage the package when the seals are removed. The extent to which a customer can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop.
When required, a cancellation can be made using the ‘Product Returns’ Section of your Imperial Phones account.
A refund of all monies received, including the outbound delivery cost, within 14 days of cancellation of the services contract or within 14 days of receiving goods back will be processed as standard. If you are able to provide proof of return before you receive the goods back, you should receive a refund within 14 days of sending that proof.
In the case of unwanted goods, Imperial Phones will not cover the cost of the postage fee incurred to return the goods to us.
Imperial Phones currently offers a Free delivery service and this would be classed as our basic rate, please note that any difference in cost between this and your original chosen delivery fee will not be returned.
In the case of faulty goods or incorrect goods returned within 30 days, if you choose to have the goods delivered by more expensive means than the cheapest standard delivery option offered/available, you will not receive a refund of the full outbound delivery cost, but only the cost of the standard delivery option which could have been chosen.
If the Customer decides to return their parcel by their own means, the refund of the expenses will not exceed the minimum delivery charge required by a trusted parcel service to return the item to us. Any service used above and beyond the standard rate will not be covered under this policy. Proof of posting will be required. Please ensure Imperial Phones UK Customer Services are consulted prior to any return fees being paid. All postage refunds must be agreed with the Imperial Phones Customer Service Team, in writing, via email prior to return.

Where goods received are faulty or not fit for purpose or as described, customers will have different rights which are covered by the Return under warranty policies.
It is our responsibility to supply you with the goods that meet your consumer rights. This Policy does not affect your legal rights.
Not applicable for business to business sales.

11. How to Return or Exchange an item

Our friendly and professional UK service team are on hand 7 days a week to sort all your queries, the best way to contact them is via email and we have a 95% success rate of responding to all customers within a 18-24 hour time period.

12.Refunds

When you return a product, we’ll process your refund as quickly as possible and do our utmost to ensure this is within seven to ten working days of when we receive and verify the item. When you return a product that you purchased using a credit card, the same card you used will be credited with the refund. This is a guide in some circumstances may take a few working days longer but, in some cases, could be processed quicker.

13. Returns

13.1.1 Imperial Phones Fair Returns Policy
Imperial Phones operates a fair returns policy, this allows customers who have a faulty item to have the item returned to us for repair, replacement or in some cases a refund. This policy does not affect nor incorporate the 30 Calendar day distance selling regulations policy.

A Customer whose device is faulty within the warranty period will have the right to have their item returned for repair or replaced (where applicable such as non-repairable). Imperial Phones requires customers to ensure their return is authorised by our customer service team, this will require the Customer sending an email to our Customer Services team to identify the reason for return and the required action, after 14 days the outcome of this return will then be at the discretion of the Customer service team. After the return has been agreed a returns reference will be provided and you will be advised on how to return the item to us, all shipping and returns information will be supplied by our Customer Services Team.

Any returns that are sent to Imperial Phones without the knowledge or authorisation of the customer services team may be rejected. Imperial Phones will not take responsibility for any returned items that were not requested by our returns team or purchased from Imperial Phones, this includes SD cards/USB Cables/Cases etc... These items may be destroyed.

13.1.2 Returning Goods to Imperial Phones after 30 Days (Faulty)

Here at Imperial Phones we try our best to ensure that with every device sold they come with minimal risk of developing a fault, as all devices go through a 100 point test and check to ensure the device is fully functional and usable before entering our stock, however in the unlikely event that your device develops a fault within 30 days of purchase then a refund, repair or exchange would be available, should your product become defective after 30 days then your product will be covered under either the manufacturer’s warranty period where applicable, such as the devices sold in ‘new’ condition (Normally for a period of 12 months or more), however devices sold in ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ condition for example are likely to have expired manufacturer’s warranty, however stress not as you will be likely covered under Imperial Phones 12 month free warranty which is supplied with every device, this does vary depending on model but typically 12 months from delivery date, we will take care of the faulty device and get the item returned back to you promptly. If the device cannot be repaired we will replace a like for like or a full refund will occur whatever the customer prefers. Please refer to the warranty section to see what is covered under Imperial Phones 12 month warranty.
In all cases where the product is returned to Imperial Phones we would always need to assess and confirm the issue.
Should a fault occur within the warranty period (after 30 days) then it would be processed under the manufacturers limited warranty terms where applicable.
In all cases you may wish to visit the manufacturer's website or contact them directly, very often they may be able to offer troubleshooting and support for the issue you have with your product and this would result in a much swifter process.
As your point of sale, Imperial Phones would always be able to assist in a return to our premises and we will then deal directly with the manufacturer on your behalf.
Please be aware that items returned directly to us will experience a longer turnaround time than by contacting the manufacturer directly and that is why we would advise dealing with the manufacturer initially as you would have the problem resolved far quicker that way.
When you return your device, (if applicable) you'll need to ensure that it's unlocked and free of security software that might prevent us from being able to access it.
If the device is locked, disabled or out of warranty cover when you return it and we provide you with a replacement device, we may have to charge you the full cost of the device and / or not process a refund (if applicable):
When returning goods to Imperial Phones you'll also need to supply:
All the original parts
Any accessories or free gifts

16.1.1 Repair Process and Delays

We aim to repair your device within 24-48 hours of receiving it. This is just an aim we target as a company, this is not a promise, as every repair varies in time and difficulty. Although 90% of all repairs get done on the same day, sometimes we encounter further issues that slow the repair down. If for any reason your repair will take longer, you will be notified of the reason and the estimated completion date. If we need to order in new parts, the repair process may be delayed. We will keep you updated throughout the whole process.
Please be aware diagnostics may take longer than usual repairs as our trained technicians take the time to look at every element of the device and check for faulty parts.
Please be advised we cannot guarantee your device will be repaired after we diagnose the fault. 89% of devices that we diagnose are repaired.

With screen repairs on Samsung Devices there is always a chance of the LCD breaking due to the glue needed to bond the glass to the LCD, we are one of the few repairers that offer just a glass repair, which in turn passes the savings on to the customer, however occasionally the LCD may break, before this happens, we always notify the customer and the procedure about to happen and the chance of it breaking, and ask for permission to carry on, as we will not be liable for the cost of the replacement LCD.

Liquid Damage repairs can take up to 7 - 14 days.
Any Motherboard related repairs can take up to 7 - 14 days.
