If the goods have been processed before you cancel we will organise collection at your own cost and such cost which will be the same as the original delivery price paid by you.

As part of or in addition to that right, we permit you to ride the Goods for a distance of no more than 3km in an environment that does not require the registration of the Goods with the DVLA (such an environment to be determined by you and at your own risk) before you make any decision to cancel the contract.

4.5. If we find that the Goods have not been returned to us as supplied in resalable condition, unused with original packaging, we reserve the right to refuse the return of the goods or deduct up to 25% of the original selling price from the refund amount, the amount of that deduction depending upon the extent of the use you have made of the Goods. This does not affect your statutory rights.
4.6. Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract and we are in receipt of the returned goods, any sum debited by us from your credit or debit card or by any other means of payment will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order PROVIDED THAT the Goods in question are returned by you and received by us as supplied complete, unused, with original packaging and in resalable condition subject to clauses 4.4 and 4.5.
