Well, to say the least, it is not easy to keep all the items we love in stock at all times. Supplies are limited and we constantly are in touch with the companies to get stuff in ASAP. Provided the goods are in stock, skates and skateboards are shipped via next working day courier within the UK. If we are unable to ship your order within 96 hours of receiving it and it is a stock item, we will contact you with the bad news. Please note this does not apply to pre orders, (designated pre order in the description) or non-stock held item with an expected delivery time. In all circumstances, your credit card is not charged until your order is ready to be shipped. We will update you by email when we think we can help get the item(s) you want.
For your security, all our card transactions are processed by PayPal. They ensure that any card details provided are encrypted and held securely. No one else, including us, has access to your billing information. Once you have placed an order with us, an email will be sent to you confirming your order details. A second e-mail will be sent with the shipment information once your order has been dispatched. It is therefore very important that you give us a valid email address so you can receive these emails. We take your online privacy seriously, and therefore your details will not be passed to or shared with any third parties.

You acknowledge and agree that the material and content contained within the Kates Skates website is made available for your personal non-commercial use only and that you may (if necessary to make a purchase) download such material and content onto only one computer hard drive for such purpose.

We will accept return merchandise within 14 days of receipt when it is in a NEW and UNUSED condition and with its original packaging. Returns are at your cost. We realise that Christmas is an exceptional period and as such we will accept returns up until the middle of January for items purchased as Christmas presents. We will only accept packages that arrive with a Return Authorisation Number clearly marked on them. You may request a RA number by emailing us at Kate@kateskates.co.uk or phoning on 01229 433445. All orders are shipped with Returns Forms which are self explanatory. If returning items to us we advise that you send them Parcel Force or regular mail, and obtain a CERTIFICATE OF POSTING from the Post Office. Sending items recorded or special delivery can prove to be very expensive.
When we are requested to assemble a complete setup skateboard, or fit the griptape, we will do so as carefully as possible but we cannot be held responsible for any scratches to the board which may occur. We can also not exchange a skateboard once it has been assembled as it is now no longer in its original packaging.
Due to the nature of the sport we will not replace broken skateboard decks.
