We are happy to offer our UK customers peace of mind when placing an order for over £20 by providing a Free Returns service via Collect+. Now you can order in confidence in the knowledge that should your items not fit correctly or are unwanted you don’t need to worry about the cost of returning the goods.
The Collect+ returns service means you can drop your parcel off at one of 5,500 local shops in the UK. Usually these shops are open late and within just 1 mile of your home which means more convenience. When you drop your parcel off you will receive a receipt with tracking details for your parcel so you know where it is and when we receive it.

How do I return my items?
On the reverse of your invoice you will find a simple returns form that needs to be completed and returned along with your goods. Please note that failure to complete this form may result in delays when processing your return. We would also ask that you do not put any tape or labels directly on to the product packaging as this will deem the product unsaleable. Please cover the original packaging as best you can before applying any tape or labels.
With most items you will receive a free returns label with your order. If for any reason you need to return the unused/unworn item you can simply complete the returns form, pack the returns form in the parcel, attach the Collect+ label and drop the package at your nearest Collect+ store (89% of our customers are within 1 mile of a Collect+ store). Please use the link below to find your nearest store.
Where do I send my items?
Orders that are eligible for the Collect+ returns service and are taken to a Collect+ store will automatically come back to us.
If your order is less than £20 and in all other circumstances the returns address is below;
Skate Hut Ltd
Unit 2, Block 2
Shenstone Trading Estate
Please do not put any tape or labels directly on to the product packaging as this will damage the packaging and cause the product to be unsaleable. In this instance you may be charged for the resulting damage.
How long will it take for my return to be processed?
It can take 2-4 days for your return to be processed once we have received the goods, please allow for this time period before getting in touch. When the return has been processed a member of the returns team will be in touch via phone or email to confirm the action taken. The Collect+ service normally takes 2-5 days for items to get back to us.
In the event that extra payment is required for an exchange a member of the returns team will give you a call to take payment.
If you have requested a refund please allow 72 hours from processing the return for the funds to reach your account. All refunds are credited to the original method used to place the order.
My exchange is urgent! What do I do?
We understand that sometimes an exchange may be urgent. In this case we would recommend placing another order through the website and return the other item back for a full refund.
Can I return my product under warranty?
All products will come with a limited manufacturer warranty, most of the time this information will be with the product. Please check this information as some manufacturers will ask that you contact them directly. In most cases however you would be asked to contact the retailer.
In the event that you feel you can claim under the warranty we would ask that you email us with a description of the issue, your order number and preferably a photograph illustrating the issue.
In some cases we may be required to contact the manufacturer for their expert opinion before a decision is made.
We may also ask that a product is returned to us for inspection and if a fault can be repaired, or damaged part replaced we are obliged to do this and return the product to you.
Please note that footwear that has been used for Skating/Scootering is not covered under warranty. The shoes sold for skating do feature elements to help make them more durable for the sport but they are not impervious to damage caused by grip tape, braking and attempting tricks.
I need to return an item from outside the UK.
Unfortunately we cannot offer free returns on orders outside of the UK. You would need to return your item to the returns address above at your own cost.
