Returns & Refunds

All hazardous items (both indoor and outdoor pyrotechnics) cannot be returned once purchased and all sales are final. This is due to the nature of the products which cannot be resold once they have been in the hands of the consumer as they could potentially be damaged or tampered with.

Damaged Items

If your goods arrive damaged, you must notify us within a reasonable time frame. Take pictures and forward these to us and we will liaise with our Courier Company and issue you a full refund for the damaged items.

If you need to return any firework product(s) to us, our returns address is:

Big Shotter Fireworks Limited
Ground Floor
57 Darley Street
West Yorkshire

In the event of any items being found to be faulty/damaged we will refund the cost of the return postage. If you prefer, we can generate a return postage label or instruct our Firework Courier to pick up the faulty/damaged product(s).

Faulty or Mis-Firing Items

In this unlikely case, we advise you to leave the particular firework where it is and do not return to it for at least 12 hours. After that take some pictures of the firework/misfire for your reference and send these to us to we can investigate further and liaise with the manufacturer.

We find that the best way to dispose of mis-firing fireworks is to soak the item in a bucket for 2-3 days, then discard it properly (call your local Fire Station / Fire Officer for advice). Once we have authenticated the damage we will then put a credit against your account.

After 30 days, we will either replace or refund the product in accordance with the terms of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
