We strongly advise you to thoroughly check the goods when you receive them and in a rare case where the goods you ordered are damaged, defective, incorrect or missing, we advise you to contact us immediately within 48 hours of receiving the goods. You can contact us via Facebook page or write to us at and our friendly resolution staff will assist you.
