What if your order doesn’t arrive?

We send out the majority of items using Royal Mail services, according to Royal Mail they don’t consider an item lost until 10 days (international postage isn’t considered lost until 25 days after date of postage) after the date of postage. If you are not in a rush for your item please wait until after the 10 days to get in touch with us as we can’t open a case with Royal Mail until after 10 days has passed. If you are in a rush get in touch with us and we will make a decision to send out replacements if stock allows and then you can return the original items when they turn up.
If your order hasn’t arrived within the suggested time above please get in touch with us either by calling us on 0113 256 5676 or by sending an email using our Contact Form. Please reference your order number.

Returns & Refunds

Can I return it if there’s nothing wrong with it?
Absolutely! We offer a 14 day returns policy, valid after the day on which you receive your goods. So if you need to bring it back, just bring it back to the shop. Or if you got it delivered, you can send it back to us in the post.
As soon as we receive the item back, we’ll either refund your money onto the original payment method or offer you an exchange. Easy.
You just need these 2 things:
Your proof of purchase (Order number, email order confirmation etc)
The item should be unused, in its original packaging and in a re-sellable condition
If the item or the packaging has been handled excessively to assess the goods (i.e. more than you would if you were buying it in a shop) we reserve the right to reduce the amount of refund to you.

Can I return my item if there’s something wrong with it?

Absolutley! We run a fair usage policy here at Aire Velo Bearings. If you feel your bearing has failed prematurely just ring us on 0113 256 5676 (8am to 5pm Mon-Fri) or send us a message to [email protected] & we will review your case and determine if the bearing has lasted a reasonable amount of time or failed prematurely.
A reasonable amount of time is pretty vague, but we consider 1 year a reasonable amount of time for a bearing to last, however due to the application of bearings on a bike there can be all sorts of factors that contribute to failure such as contamination/water ingress or god forbid jet washing your bike!
Unfortunately sometimes there is a chance of a defective bearing. If you feel your bearing is defective on delivery please get in touch via the above options and we will either issue a full refund or offer a replacement. (We will also ask you to send the defective bearing back to us so we can get it checked for defaults by our manufacturers).
As soon as we receive the item back, we’ll either refund your money onto the original payment method or offer you an exchange. Easy.

How do I return my item?

Please send all returns to Aire Bearings Ltd, 34 Bradford Road, Stanningley, Leeds, LS28 6DD.
Please include a copy of your proof of purchase so we know who we are dealing with.

How long will my refund take?

As soon as we receive the item back, we’ll start the refund. However, it may take 5 – 7 days for paypal or your bank to process the money back to your account. All refunds will be processed within 14 days.

What counts as proof of purchase?

Any of these:
till/kiosk receipt
confirmation email
your order number
If you can’t find one of the above, don’t worry. We should be able to sort everything out if you have:
