commenced:

  •  Outside a 24 hours notification period, no cancellation will be accepted
  •  Should the shop be notified via email within 24 hours of you receiving the goods, a cancellation fee of only 50% will be levied.
    This fee will be calculated on the rental amount of the item/s to be
    returned.
  •  In both cases, the delivery fees will still be the responsibility of the client.

3) Replacement of rental goods:

3.1) Faulty Item

Rental items will be replaced in the following situations:
If a client suspects that a rental item is not in working condition, the Mom & Baby House will collect the item at our own expense and replace it with a similar product. The non-functioning item will be tested and if the rental item is functioning 100%, the courier fee (both delivery and collection) will be for the client’s account and the collection/courier fee will be deducted from the client’s refundable security deposit.

Please note: Rental goods are pre-loved and there will be small scratches and marks on the items. P.S. this is not a new product and these items will not be seen as faulty if that is the complaint. It will be the responsibility of the client to make sure that his or her expectations are realistic.

Procedure to be followed: The non-functioning rental item should be reported within 48 hours (telephonically or personally or email) after receiving it even if the client cannot return the goods immediately due to distance.

It is the client’s responsibility to test and/or inspect the rental item when it is delivered.

If no defect is reported within the first 48 hours, The Mom & Baby House will assume that the item does not need to be replaced. If defects or problems are not communicated to The Mom & Baby house within 48 hours, the client will have to take responsibility and it will be
seen as a “breakage” The security deposit will then be forfeited.

3.2) Damaged Item

Rental items that are faulty/ damaged on return or not returned after the rental period by the client will be replaced at the cost of the client. For this reason, a rental client will pay a security deposit on every rental item. This deposit will not be refunded in the above situation. By signing this Return Policy you understand and accept the return policy of The Mom & Baby House.
