Returns Information

To ensure we are keeping our customers and colleagues safe we are changing the way our stores operate and our exchange policy.

We are extending our exchange and returns policy to 90 days until further notice. This will be available on products bought in-store and online on or after 24th February 2020. While receipts will not show the new extended date, our colleagues will ensure that all items bought within this timeframe can be returned or exchanged.

The easiest way to return items is to take them to a store where a colleague will be able to process a refund for you. To find a local store near you that is open please click here.

How to Return to Store

  • Please bring your order confirmation email, SMS or packing slip which will enable us to process your refund.
  • The refund will be processed to your original payment method only, so please ensure you have your payment card with you.
  • We are going cashless to help protect our colleagues and customers. During this time, we will be able to refund cash purchases onto a Halfords Gift Card.
  • Customers will no longer need to fill in any paperwork to obtain refunds.
  • If you paid by Paypal it will be refunded back to your Paypal account, and Klarna Finance against your finance agreement.
  • If there is no store open near you to return to then you can also return by post. Go to the How to Return by Post section below.
  • For items ordered online and delivered - if the item is large or if you are unable to get to a store/post office within 90 days of your purchase then we are able to arrange a courier collection, however this has a cost of £10 to you. You will need to contact us to arrange this service. Go to the How to Return by Courier section below.

How to Return by Post

Consumer protection legislation says that items must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If you buy a product online and it's found to be faulty within 30 days, you're entitled to ask for a full refund of the faulty product. If a fault occurs after the initial 30 days, we're entitled to repair and/or replace that item. If it can't be repaired or replaced, then you may be entitled to a refund. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

This does not affect your statutory rights.
