Golden Valley Hobbies Terms & Conditions
You are welcome to contact us for further advice or information, full contact details are shown under the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of this page.
All items which include a mains plug or connector will be supplied with either a UK 3 pin plug or an EU to UK adapter plug - customers outside the UK are responsible for ensuring their local electrical supply and sockets are compatible with their purchase. The UK electrical supply is 240volt. We are unable to accept items returned due to incompatible power supplies, or where the unit has been modified or damaged for overseas use.
Pictures, images and descriptions:
Where pictures of products are shown on the website they are illustrative only and may not represent the contents of just one item. Pictures are generally supplied to us by the manufacturers and are typically packaging illustrations. Just as in a shop you should enquire if you are unsure what is included in a product. Pictures may show completed or painted items (e.g. items supplied in kit form), or products not included in the item (e.g. a car shown in a picture of a model street light). The colour of models can change and so unless stated in the description you should assume the colour of your purchase may vary (e.g. a model car may be pictured in red but be delivered in blue) obviously a LIVERY shown in a picture would not change if it matches the description - e.g. a GWR steam loco would always be delivered as shown in the picture, never in BR Black!
When things go wrong:
We appreciate that occasionally we will let a customer down - if we fail to meet your expectations please let us know - we value feedback and believe all complaints are an opportunity to improve our service.
We will acknowledge all complaints/feedback within 3 working days and update you as to how long the problem will take to investigate, all items are taken seriously and the decision agreed with one of our Senior Managers.
Damaged or broken items:
If one of your purchases is damaged upon receipt please speak to the retailer who has supplied the item to you. They will work with you to solve the problem.
Items which are damaged or require service after delivery should be dealt with in accordance to the manufacturers instructions enclosed with your purchase.
Packaging & Boxes:
We know some collectors consider the pristine condition of boxes and packaging material as important to their items. However, as you are unable to inspect and approve the condition of packaging via Mail order, we recommend customers visit to collect such items, or purchase from their local model shop instead. We are unable to consider an item 'faulty' due to damaged packaging. You are welcome to return, at your cost, packaging which does not meet your expectations and we will attempt to replace it. A £5 service fee plus P&P applies for these requests.
Changing your mind:
You are welcome to add, amend or cancel your order at any time - we understand circumstances can change between ordering and our dispatch of your chosen items. Please let us know about such changes as soon as possible to avoid items being sent to you in error!
UK customers have the right to a 14 day cooling off period from date of receipt of your goods without giving a reason for the return. You simply pay the cost of returning the items to the retailer who supplied the goods to you. They will refund any money due to you within 14 days of such a cancellation. Postal charges & service charges are not refundable
