Return your order
Buy now, return in the New Year
We want you to be completely satisfied every time you shop with Wheelies. We therefore give you 365 days to return your order to us for any reason. If you wish to return an order please follow the instructions below. Goods must be returned in a resaleable condition with all tags intact.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept returns of the following products: CD/DVD's or software that have been opened; food products that will be within 3 months of the sell-by date on their return; and products that can't be returned for hygiene reasons once the original packaging has been opened such as undergarments (padded shorts, bibshorts etc.). Bikes which are customised to a customer's personal specification are also excluded from returns except in cases of warranty issues.
If you wish to return an order all goods should be suitably packaged to avoid damage, preferably using the packaging in which they were sent to you. Goods must be returned in a resaleable condition with all tags intact. Extra care must be taken when trying on clothing and please ensure you are not wearing any make up, fragrance or deodorant that may leave a scent or mark. We reserve the right to make a deduction from the refundable amount if goods are not returned in a saleable condition or are damaged. A full refund will be provided (excluding any return postage costs if applicable). To return your items, please see our returns procedure below.
Where goods were purchased on finance, we will only refund the net funds received from the Finance Company.
If goods are paid for with a card using different currency, we will only refund the relevant GBP amount, irrespective of the exchange value.

Returning a product under the WEEE Regulations.
What do the WEEE regulations mean?
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Shops selling new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
When you buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us either online or in-store, we will take back your old item on a like-for-like basis. This will prevent it going into a landfill site by being disposed for recycling.
Customers must return their WEEE item to Wheelies within 28 days of purchasing their new item. You can either drop the product off in-store, or send the item, clearly marked as WEEE to Wheelies at:
Wheelies Direct Ltd
Swansea West Industrial Park
If the item is too large, contact us to arrange a return. Please note that this is not a free service.
Disposing of electrical equipment?
There is of course no reason why you can't drop off your old electrical equipment at a recycling site local to you, whether you have just bought a new item or want to get rid of old equipment regardless.
By taking your waste electrical products to one of the registered amenity sites, you can be confident that they will be subjected to a monitored and controlled recycling process, thereby preventing these products being sent to landfill. You can locate your closest participating collection site by entering your postcode at www.recycle-more.co.uk
How do I recognise WEEE products?
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below which will help you identify products as WEEE.
We are aware of our responsibilities to the consumer and have taken all steps to ensure our business meets the requirements of related EU and UK consumer protection laws, particularly the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation & Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and other legislation specific to the products that we sell. It is our responsibility to supply you with goods that meet your consumer rights. If you have any concerns that we have not met our legal obligations please contact us at email@example.com.
