Change of mind product returns
 

You may return an item because you have changed your mind about your purchase. Once proof of purchase is established, Flamesmiths Inc. will gladly offer you an alternative product, credit (in the form of a gift card) or refund provided that:
 

·         You return the item within 30 days of purchase at your own expense

If these requirements are not satisfied Flamesmiths Inc. reserves the right not to offer an exchange product, credit (in the form of a gift card) or refund for change of mind returns.

Please note: To obtain a refund or exchange you will need to present the store staff with the credit card that you originally purchased the goods on, so the transaction can be reversed. Refunds will not be given in cash when original payment was made via a credit card.

For any return of goods purchased online, please call us on 03 9703 1758 or email us at sales@melbournefirebricks.com.au. Our Customer Service operating hours are 9:00 am - 5:00pm (AEST), Monday to Friday. Please make sure to keep a copy of your invoice for easier correspondence.

The delivery charges will only be reimbursed when Flamesmiths Inc. is at fault; that is, if the wrong item is delivered to the customer or there is a fault with the product (including damaged in transit). In all other circumstances, including change of mind, the delivery charges will be deducted from the refund to the customer.
