If this is not possible then you should report the missing or damaged goods to ourselves within 24 hours as we only have a maximum of 3 days in which to report it to the courier.

12.2 You are responsible for the cost of shipping the model to us and for the return shipping cost back to you.
12.3 There is a minimum charge of £15 ("the inspection service") which needs to be paid before returning the model to us. This is to cover the cost of inspecting the model to see what is wrong with it and the return shipping cost to you.
12.4 Our charges are £15.00 per hour plus the cost of any parts and the cost of shipping the model back to you.
12.5 Following inspection of the model you will be given a written quote for the cost of the repair to include parts and shipping. Upon receipt of the quote you can choose not to accept it in which case you will only be liable to pay the inspection service fee of £15.00 and your model will be returned to you.
12.6 If you decide to accept the quote there will be a link for you to pay for the service and upon receipt of your payment we will carry out the work on your behalf and ship the model back to you upon completion. In this event any money you have paid for the inspection service fee will be treated as a deposit towards the total cost of the quote and shown as a credit.
12.7 You will have 30 days in which to reject or accept the quote. If we do not hear from you within 30 days it will be assumed you have rejected the quote and your model will automatically be returned to you.
12.8 We aim to carry out inspections within 3 days of receipt of your model and any repairs within 7 days following full payment of the cost of the repair service provided in the quote being received. These times are not guaranteed and we accept no liability for any loss or damage caused as result of any delay which may occur.
12.9 If we cannot carry out a repair for any reason you will only be liable for the inspection service fee and your model will be shipped back to you. We have tried to limit this happening by asking that you contact us first but until the model is physically inspected by us we cannot know the true extent of any repair that is required. We do not accept any liability for loss or damage as a result of being unable to carry out a repair for whatever reason this may be.
13. Uncollected Goods and Unpaid Inspection Service Fees
If you return goods to us that you believe to be faulty that turn out not to be faulty then you will be responsible for the cost of inspection and shipping cost to return them to you. As in clause 8.5 above you will be sent an invoice for the inspection service fee of £15 and your goods will not be returned to you until payment is received in full. If you have still not paid the invoice or collected your model from us within 6 months from the date of the invoice then they will be disposed of. If there is a genuine reason why you cannot pay the invoice within the specified time then you should contact us immediately.
