Collection , Courier and Third Parties

Couriers charge separately for return collections and new deliveries, even if it’s done in one trip. We know, it’s crazy, but that’s how they work.

Only courier returns will be accepted. We do not collect from Post Offices or any other counter to counter service. Goods returned via this method remain the responsibility of the sender and will have to be rerouted to the sender.
No returns or on-the-spot exchanges at our Durban Factory. Goods will only be accepted for return via an accredited courier. No Customer Care staff are present at our Factory and all contact must be made via the official contact email in your order confirmation.

Items purchased at third party retailers must be returned to that retailer which terms of sale and return apply.

Goods in transit remain the responsibility of the purchaser. Hoolies may, upon request, institute claims on your behalf or replace missing goods tampered with or stolen while in transit if the courier collection was initiated by Hoolies.

Missing items
The purchaser must check that your parcel has not been tampered with. If a seal is broken, take a photo and contact  Customer Care promptly. Claims must be reported within 24 hours of courier receipt. After this, Hoolies will be unable to assist or replace missing items or claim from insurance.

If you have instructed the courier to leave your parcel unattended at your gate or to hand it to a third party, no claims can be entertained by the courier or Hoolies.
