Our commitment to customer satisfaction

We work hard to ensure customer satisfaction and describe our items as clearly as possbile so that nothing is misrepresented. With regard to shipping, we realise that sometimes accidents may happen and for this reason we always package our items securely in order to try and eliminate the risk of damage. In the event of damage happening and to ensure proper compensation is paid by the insurer it is essential that a suitable method of postage is paid for by the customer that provides the required documentation for the insurer. We will provide prices and details of postage on request.

We have no control over items being lost or stolen and for this reason we advise that in order to claim a refund customers should agree to a form of postage that will provide the insurer with documentation that the item was shipped and not received; please refer to point 5 above.

In the rare event of a refund being requested Northern Antiques will always endeavour to work with the customer to bring the matter to an acceptable and amicable conclusion.
