Unhappy with your purchases?

We understand that it can be difficult buying items that you have not handled. It is very important to us that our clients are completely satisfied with their purchases and we will gladly provide more detailed pictures and condition reports on request. You can also talk to us via the facility on the website. Please take advantage of all these services before you purchase as we are sure that this will help you make your decision.

If you are unhappy in any way please contact us immediately upon receipt of the item as we would hope that we would be able to resolve your unhappiness.

However you can cancel your purchase for any reason even if it is undamaged PROVIDED you do so within 14 (fourteen) days of the day on which you receive the item. Cancellation must be done by sending us an email to our email address at dungbeetleantique@btinternet.com stating that you are cancelling your purchase.
