Hints & Tips
These hints and tips on repacking and returning your unwanted items are here to help ensure you receive your full refund, please read them carefully

Please ensure the original branded packaging is well protected when returned. 

Please keep in mind the original branded packaging will need to be reused by us and given to another customer.  Please open your items carefully so the branded packaging is not badly damaged.

Avoid sticking colored tape, address labels on the original branded packaging.  Avoid using masking, coloured or duck tape to reseal a return, these tapes tend to come unstuck. Wide clear parcel tape is best.

Stick the return label over the delivery label.  Please never write on the original branded packaging.

Returns will need to be organised by you.  The post office will take most things however with large heavy items it may be cheaper to use a courier.  Couriers can be booked online and you can compare prices for different companies.  We strongly suggest that insure your return to the appropriate value.  The condition of the goods remains your responsibility until we receive them.

Resolving Complaints

Ideally, we aim to resolve complaints within a timescale of seven working days.  If this is not possible because a full investigation has not yet been completed, a progress report will be sent to the complainant. If we, Funktion Alley, are unable to resolve a complaint that you make within eight weeks you can take your complaint to The Retail Ombudsman. This is an independent organisation specialising in providing an alternative dispute resolution service for consumers and retailers. You will need to refer your complaint to The Retail Ombudsman within 12 months after our final response. As a member of the organisation, we are bound by their code of practice and they can be contacted via:
