If you are unhappy with your Hills Hats order we are happy to accept a return or exchange within 30 days of the purchase date (notification to us must be made within 15 days). This excludes any made-to-order, custom or personalised hats. The hat must be returned in original condition, unworn and unlaundered with the original labelling and packaging.
Returns and Exchanges
All returns require authorisation from us. Any item returned without prior authorisation will not be accepted. Please email us with your returns request within 15 days from purchase date, stating the reason, your contact information and your order number. We will treat each return request individually and will email you with further instructions. Our returns address is:
30 Fitzherbert Street, Petone, Wellington 5012, New Zealand.
Please note that you are responsible for the costs of returning the item to us unless it was an error on our part. For your protection, we recommend that you use a tracked delivery service. The goods are your responsibility until they reach our warehouse, so make sure they are packed correctly and can’t get damaged on the way.
If you are returning an item because of an error on our part or because it is damaged, we will credit the cost of sending the hat back to us providing it passes inspection. We will only pass a credit or send a replacement once we have received and checked the original item returned.
Once the returned hat has passed inspection we will notify you via email. You will receive a replacement item or a credit/refund via your initial payment method.
Our size guide is just that – a guide. We have done our best to give you the information and instructions to obtain your head size but ultimately this is up to you to measure correctly. If you are returning a hat due to incorrect sizing we will not issue a refund but are more than happy to try and source you a better fit or you can exchange it for another hat. You will only be charged a delivery fee and any difference in price of the new item.
Any made-to-order, custom or personalized hat cannot be returned or exchanged. This includes all wool felt, fur felt and uniform hats.
* SALE ITEMS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REFUND. Items purchased with a discount code or at a sale rate cannot be returned. If the item is no longer full price, it is deemed on sale. We will offer store credit in the form of a gift card or we are happy to exchange for another item.
* FACE MASKS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REFUND (Due to health & safety and hygiene reasons)
All large quantity orders that are returned are subject to a 10% restocking fee.
We’ll replace or repair any hat with a manufacturing defect. Product failures as a result of misuse or improper care are not covered under this warranty. Hills Hats can repair everyday wear-and-tear for a reasonable cost.
If the hat shows damage from improper care or abuse (mold or mildew included), it will not be repaired or replaced. Color fading, stains, grommet patina, frayed cords are all signs of a well-worn and well-loved hat and do not signal a defective hat.
Cracking of the front pinch on hats, especially straws, is due to misuse and is not a manufacturing defect. This is due to constant pinching when taking the hat on and off. We will endeavor to repair it.
Please get in touch before sending your hat in. Include your details when you send back your hat to us for a warranty assesment.
