Why don’t we offer free returns?
We do not accept returns for change of mind. In our line of products, unless the item is majorly damaged or defective upon arrival, we’re not able to offer returns for a refund because there is a moderate risk of damage in transit once the goods have been taken out of the carton by the customer.
We accept a certain level of risk each time we ship out one of our products and unfortunately the courier accepts nil responsibility. If something is damaged in return freight, essentially we may have cost ourselves the value of the write-off if someone has simply changed their mind, or didn’t read the item description before purchase.
Do you offer a free trial?
For companies that offer free 30-day returns are alike, what do you imagine happens to those products that are returned? Does the company also offer demo stock for a discounted price? If another shop or brand offering free returns and are not offering demo stock for sale, do you care to guess what happens to those used returns? For these reasons, we do not offer free trials.
When you buy a Sex Machines product, you’re buying a 100% new, unused product.
Please contact Fuck Machine for any warranty related matters.
