I am a trade customer and wish to return overstocks

Bookshops & Trade Customers
a) Overstocks
Where NHBS exclusively distributes a title, overstock returns will be authorised up to 12 months from the date of invoice. For titles where NHBS are the non-exclusive distributor, overstocks returns will be judged on a case by case basis. In each instance please begin by contacting NHBS for a Returns Authorisation Number.
Please note that overstocks returns must be packed well and received in a re-sellable condition. NHBS reserves the right to refuse badly packed returns.
b) Damaged Goods – please see above
