We aim to be completely transparent in all we do and take our responsibility to customers, staff and suppliers seriously. Ethics in business are vitally important to us and we aim to work synergistically both with people and our planet. Please feel free to browse our policies. Gin Gin Tidy takes payment when orders have been checked out. 

Returns Policy

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 offers you certain rights. You can cancel your order pre shipping by emailing gingintidy@gmail.com and we will refund your payment in full. Cancellation does not affect statutory rights. Once goods have been shipped, you are protected by our returns policy.

 

You can return your order if it does not suit. Please email us at gingintidy@gmail.com within 7 days to tell us you plan to do this. Goods must be returned to us within 14 days of receiving them. Products must be returned unused, in saleable condition and with all labels intact. Please note that you must cover the cost of returning the products (unless the product is faulty). It's recommended that you use a reputable courier and can track the service. It may also be in your interest to insure the items as you are liable for them until we have taken formal receipt of the goods. Please keep all proof of shipping. When we have received your returned product(s) we will issue a refund to your original source of payment. All returns are quarantined for 72 hours before rejoining other stock in line with the ScotGov Covid guidelines.


You can exchange your product depending on stock availability. The standard shipping costs will apply. If you wish to exchange your goods please make your request to us via email again to: gingintidy@gmail.com. If you are merely replacing with another product of the same price, your replacement item will be shipped once we have received the original product back in the aforementioned condition. If you are swapping for a less expensive item we will refund the balance between the two items and ship once we have received the original product back in the aforementioned condition. If you are swapping for a more expensive item we will send you an email or SMS to authorise the charge for the balance between the two items and ship once we have received the original product back in the aforementioned condition.


Our products are checked rigorously pre shipping but if you are not satisfied with the quality or notice something that has escaped our quality inspection please notify us via email: gingintidy@gmail.com. Faulty goods are classified as goods that have an obvious fault, are not fit for purpose or exhibit a manufacturing fault within a six month period of time after receipt of goods. We have the right to attempt to repair the item or replace it (if available), and if these options are not possible then the customer is entitled to a refund. Please note, items that degrade due to normal wear and tear are not classified as faulty. We will issue replacement goods if available at no shipping cost to the customer in these circumstances.

Shipping Policy

Gin Gin Tidy will rarely ship your products same day. We take a slow(er) logistics approach to minimise courier trips to our store and reduce carbon footprint. If you need an item in a hurry please contact us and we can see what we can do. You should not be waiting more than 2-3 working days for your order however, it could be longer in December. We usually use the Post Office but sometimes a courier for larger deliveries. You will receive a tracking number from us once the order has left our care. 

We charge £4.95 for UK Mainland Shipping for orders under £75 and shipping is free over £75.

We also offer a free click and collect service.

Environmental Policy

At Gin Gin Tidy, environmental concerns are extremely important.  This is why we stock so many products made from sustainable and recycled materials. We try to make sure that our practices are in line with this ethos. Here are some of the small things we do:

  • Our electricity provider uses 100% renewables

  • Our packaging both in the store and for e-commerce orders is recycled

  • We never leave lighting on in the shop overnight, not even to illuminate our window displays or outside of our unit.

  • We ship in a ‘slow logistics’ manner. If you need an item next day, Gin Gin Tidy probably isn’t the best option for you.

  • You won’t receive unnecessary paperwork, compliment slips or business cards from us because there is no need. 

  • We try to work with partners that share our values.
