Delivery and Returns

A quick note about the return of lights.

When you purchase a light from Rume we purchase it on your behalf from the relevant supplier. This often means that the light comes from a distant third country with all of the environmental impact that implies. We are happy to do this knowing that your purchase is carefully considered and very unlikely to come back to us which is good as we are unable to return the light to the supplier and have to keep it and bear the cost of any refund. Occasionally this happens because a light proves unsuitable which is perfectly understandable but when lights are purchased solely for the purposes of comparison and returned as a matter of course it is very annoying. We are a small company and cannot afford to have lights come back to us but we are bound by law so if you choose to do so we have to accept it. It doesn’t make us very happy, so please, to avoid unhappiness, if you are unsure about a light and think you may return it, don’t buy it from us.
