  • For returns, you must have an invoice, receipt, or order reference number.
  • Take items to a Toolstation branch in their original packaging.
  • If your purchase was through a Toolstation supplier, reach out to Toolstation's contact centre to process a refund.
  • Customer service will verify the purchase completion date (which must have taken place in the previous 30 days).

Items not eligible for the 30-day deadline are marked on the website or in the catalogue. Non-eligible items may include products cut, made, or mixed to your specifications. The list also includes:

Returns to Toolstation Suppliers

The company has unique policy procedures if you purchase from one of its partner suppliers.

  1. If you buy from a Toolstation partner, the 30-day policy is still valid. Only you must return items to that supplier, not a branch or through Toolstation's customer centre. Be sure you know the policy for that supplier. Some won't take back a product that's been used.
  2. You can contact Toolstation's customer service team and arrange the return and refund. The service comes with a £9 fixed fee (taken from the refund).
  3. If you paid using cash, purchases will need to be returned to a branch. If purchased from a supplier, Toolstation will notify the supplier. The supplier will process the refund and provide a cash refund at the branch.

How Long Will It Take to Receive a Toolstation Refund?

The store will process a refund within 14 days of the request.
