5.6 Large items. Should your order include a large domestic electrical item or furniture item, it is your responsibility to ensure you check access to your premises before placing your order. We advise that you do not book kitchen fitters or installation engineers until your items have arrived, as we will not be held responsible for any costs associated with this.

5.7 UK Installation services. Installation and assembly services are offered in the UK only for selected large domestic electrical items and furniture. You will be charged for this service if you select it. In some instances we will also be happy to take away your old large electrical items if required.

6. Cancelling Your Order

6.1 Cancelling an order prior to delivery. If you wish to cancel an order prior to delivery, you can do this by contacting Customer Services by email or telephone (see term 10 'Contacting us').

The cost of your order will be refunded as well as the cost of any standard delivery charge for delivering the item(s) to you.

6.2 Cancelling an order prior to collection. If you cancel an order due for Click & Collect you do not need to come in to store to refuse the item(s). The order will be cancelled and the price paid for the item(s) will be refunded. You do not need to take any further action.

7. Returns After Delivery/Collection

Changing your mind

7.1 Changing your mind. Other than in the case of the excluded items listed at term 7.2 below, you are entitled to change your mind and cancel your order for any reason within 30 calendar days after delivery or collection for an exchange or full refund.

7.2 Excluded items. Your right to return an item does not apply to certain items unless these items are faulty on delivery or collection or mis‑described. These items are:

  • newspapers and magazines;
  • CDs, DVDs, videos and computer software (which may be restricted to an exchange for the same title to reduce the risk of unlicensed copying);
  • perishable items;

If you do not exercise reasonable care and the item(s) you are returning is damaged whilst in your possession, in transit or, in the case of flat packed furniture, if the item has been damaged by part-assembly, we reserve the right to reduce the amount of credit we give to you on refund. We therefore recommend that if you are returning the item(s) by post you use a service which insures you for the value of the item(s) you are returning.

If you discover the item is damaged, faulty, mis‑described or parts are missing after 30 calendar days from delivery or collection, you may return the item and request either a repair or replacement. If the repair or replacement provided by us is not satisfactory, you can then request either a refund or price reduction. Where it is not possible for us to provide a replacement or repair for an item (e.g. because the item/parts no longer exist), we will offer you a refund or price reduction. Please note the special terms that apply to furniture items at 7.10 below.

7.8 Delivery costs. In circumstances where we process a refund for an item(s) which is damaged, faulty or mis-described or parts are missing we will also refund you for the full delivery costs you incurred to receive and return the item(s) and you will not be charged when we re-deliver item(s) to you.

If you are posting an item back to us we recommend that you obtain a proof of posting certificate or receipt. Please note the special terms that apply to furniture items at 7.10 below.

Furniture and Upholstery

7.10 Furniture and upholstery items. The following additional terms will apply to purchases of furniture and upholstery items from the George Website (including indoor and outdoor furniture, flat pack furniture and sofas) and take priority over any other conflicting terms:

  • Returning furniture or upholstery items. Furniture and upholstery items delivered to your home can only be returned via collection from your home. Please do not attempt to return furniture or upholstery items in store or arrange your own return to ASDA as your return will not be accepted. To arrange collection, or if you are unsure whether can you can return an item in store, please contact Customer Services (see term 10 'Contacting us').
  • Faulty items. The provisions of term 7.7 (Faulty items) above apply to all furniture and upholstery items. For furniture and upholstery items priced at £100 or more the following additional terms will apply:
  • If you discover a furniture or upholstery item is damaged or faulty within the first 30 days from delivery, we will offer to send an independent expert to visit your home to assess the damage or fault and advise you of the repair service appropriate for your item. This does not affect your rights to the remedies set out in term 7.7 (Faulty items).
  • If you discover a furniture or upholstery item is damaged or faulty after 30 days from delivery, we will send an independent expert to visit your home to assess the damage or fault and we will advise you of an appropriate remedy based on the recommendation of the independent expert. This does not affect your rights to the remedies set out in term 7.7 (Faulty items)
  • You will not be charged for the cost of the independent expert unless the expert determines that the furniture or upholstery item is not faulty or damaged, or that the fault or damage was not caused by ASDA or the manufacturer of the item (for example, if the item has been maliciously or negligently damaged).

8. Refunds

8.1 Payment card. All refunds will be made by crediting the card you paid with.

8.2 Processing time. We will make any refunds within 14 days of receiving the item(s) back or if we are collecting the item(s) back or when you supply us with proof that you have returned the item(s) to us (for example, proof of posting certificate), or if we are collecting the item(s) from you, within 14 days of either receiving your notification to us that you wish to return the item(s). The refund will be shown in your available balance once cleared in your account.

8.3 Returns started in ‘My Account’. If you start your refund in your “My Account” and drop it into an ASDA store in accordance with our instructions, your refund may be processed faster than set out in paragraph 8.2. When your refund is eligible for this faster refund we will process your refund as soon as we receive your item in the ASDA store. We will send you an email to confirm the return and your refund will be shown in your available balance once cleared in your account.

8.4 Costs incurred in returning item(s). We will not be responsible for your costs in returning item(s) unless they are faulty, or otherwise permitted by these terms.

8.5 Exchange Rates. Any refunds paid to you will be in Pounds Sterling and will match the amount you paid in Pounds Sterling for the item(s) and delivery (if the delivery charge is refundable). If an exchange rate is applicable to your order the amount you receive in your local currency will depend on the exchange rate applied by your credit or debit card provider when it receives our refund payment and may therefore be different from the price paid for the item(s) in your local currency. We will not be liable for any losses caused to you as a result of any currency fluctuations or exchange rates applied by your credit or debit card provider.

8.6 Other legal remedies. Your rights under UK or your national consumer legislation and any manufacturer guarantees are not affected by anything in these terms and conditions.
