All drawings, photos, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued on this website are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the products described in them. They will not form part of the contract with you and no warranty or guarantee shall be expressed or implied in the contract with you in this regard.

The prices displayed on this site are quoted in UK pounds sterling. The prices include VAT at 20% (UK tax), where appropriate, and are subject to change if the applicable rate of VAT changes before your order is accepted.
Where there is a delay or likelihood of delay in the supply of products, we will advise you as soon as possible. You may either cancel your order or choose a replacement item.
Any orders you place with us will not be accepted and no contract will be formed between us until you have been instructed that said goods are available and these goods have been paid for and all applicable charges in full. No payment shall be deemed to have been received until we have received payment in cleared funds.
We will confirm our acceptance of your order on receipt of cleared funds by email (where a valid email address is provided).
On placing an order your email address will be added to Mountain Warehouse Limited and group companies mailing lists. You can unsubscribe at any time.
We reserve the right at all times and at our sole discretion to refuse to accept any orders.
If your order has already been dispatched, please follow the returns procedure and we will grant you a full refund.
Recipients of deliveries made outside the European Union may have to pay import duty or formal customs entry. If this is the case, the delivery may be delayed. Any such charges are the responsibility of the recipient and Animal cannot offer any assistance in these processes.
We would advise you check the custom duty threshold of the country you're sending your items to, before you order, and keep your total basket value below that threshold should you wish to avoid any additional charges.
Very large or bulk orders will not be eligible for free delivery, all bulk orders will be weighed and the delivery charge will be advised. If you would like to discuss placing a large or bulk order, please Contact Us here.
Gas, Chemicals and other items considered dangerous are not able to be shipped. These items are not available for purchase online.

This applies to all orders including, but not limited to those which are intentionally refused, exceeded 'Delivery Attempt Maximum', 'Hold Time Maximum’ or where the delivery address is incomplete or invalid.
Undelivered orders Returned to Sender:
Undelivered orders will not be re-shipped, if the items are still required you will need to place a new order.
You will be notified by email that you have been refunded for an undelivered order.
If you suspect your order has been returned as undeliverable and you have not had confirmation of this after 30 days, please contact us here.
If you would like to return an item, it must be within 30 days of receipt. Unfortunately, we cannot accept a return for a refund more than 30 days after you have received the item unless the item is faulty, mislabelled or incorrectly described.
We will include a returns form with your delivery which you should send with the goods if you are returning them to our warehouse.
The products must be in their original packaging and in an unworn/unused condition. In the case of footwear, this means that the footwear must not have been worn outside or treated in any way.
Please note that some larger items may need to be returned via other methods, for further information, please contact our Customer Service Team here.
If your item is faulty and more than 30 days have passed, please contact us via the online support department on the Contact Us page here.
We cannot refund any costs incurred for using 'Special' or 'Express' services.
Right to Cancel:
You can cancel your order within 30 days of receiving it. Orders that have already been dispatched will need to be returned to us through the usual method.

If returning an item bought by credit note you will be entitled to another credit note. You will not be entitled to a refund.
