At Bob The Blindman we like to keep things simple so our returns policy is simple:
Boxed Product, Ready Made Items and Accessories etc.:
We are happy to accept returns and offer a full refund if you have purchased any readymade item, accessory, curtain pole, candle, gizmo etc. PROVIDED it is returned to us at your expense and in an unopened condition and is re-sellable by us.
What does re-sellable mean? Quite simply unopened, undamaged, unused or defaced in any way. In other words it comes back to us in the same condition it left us. Or to put it simply it needs to arrive back in a condition that if you received it from us YOU would be happy!
We cannot accept a return and will not refund on an item that has been damaged or defaced in any way.
Made to measure products:
Because our made-to-measure blinds and curtains are made exactly to your measurements, we can only exchange faulty blinds or curtains. We cannot be held responsible for any errors in measuring or fitting so please take time to read our how to fit guides and if in doubt why not give us a call.

If any item arrives damaged or defective then please call 0800 7837001 and we will help.
Please note that an exchange of a made to measure product will be for the same product, colour, size and design as originally ordered.
If you have any questions or you just want to chat to real people about any of our products then just give us a call 0800 7837001 and for those on a mobile why not try our landline 01939 291693
