Buying your Hire Wetsuit
Your hire wetsuit is available to buy at any time during the hire period, just let us know in writing (email is good) if you would like to keep it at the discount price and there will be nothing else to pay.
If your wetsuit is not returned by 30th September and we have not had any communication from you we will assume you are keeping your wetsuit and the hire contract is complete.
Returning your Hire Wetsuit
If you are returning your wetsuit it must be returned clean and the right way round (i.e. not inside out). Fold up your wetsuit and wrap in layers of protective paper and/ or plastic. Enclose your order number, name, daytime landline contact number and email address. Label your package ’Season Hire Return’ and return your wetsuit to:
Swim the Lakes, 2 Compston Road, Ambleside, Cumbria. LA22 9DJ.
We recommend you use a recorded delivery service as the wetsuit is your responsibility until it is back with us at the return address. Any wetsuit which is ‘lost in post’ before it reaches us is still your wetsuit and we will not be able to refund your deposit.
If your hire wetsuit is returned to us later then the agreed return date you will be liable to pay 50% of your original deposit in late fees plus any damage costs. We will take this from your deposit.
Refunding your Deposit
We will process your returned wetsuit and refund your deposit, minus any damage/ cleaning costs, as soon as we can. As it could be a busy time for us please allow 15 days after we have received your suit for the refund to appear in your bank account and before contacting us.
Refunds will be made using the same details and process by which you made the purchase e.g. PayPal or card. It is your responsibility to ensure the payment details remain valid so that we are able to make the refund.
Wetsuit Damage and Cleaning
We really don’t want to charge for damage and with reasonable it avoidable, but accidents do happen.
If your wetsuit is damaged, please contact us before you return it as it may be more economical for you to keep the wetsuit.
Damages charges: £20 per small hole (up to 1 cm) and £40 per hole larger than 1cm or a tear, where the tear goes through the suit.
Your wetsuit should be returned clean and dry, any wetsuit that requires cleaning or drying upon return to us will be charged £5 to dry and £10 per clean. Charges will be taken from your deposit.
