Return and exchange policy

At Fundação Ricardo do Espírito Santo Silva, we want to make sure that our customers are happy with their FRESS product. We do everything we can to guarantee the quality of our products and services.

Most of the items sold are manufactured at FRESS workshops so some products may not be in stock and may be made to order.

We aim to ensure that all the products we sell are in perfect condition for use and display, according to their original characteristics.

The images of the products may not correspond exactly to the reality as they depend on factors such as the way in which the pictures were taken, the characteristics of the product itself, the types of material used, the type of finish and the way in which the product is manufactured in the FRESS workshops, as each piece is unique.

In some cases, the images, measurements and colours, as well as their names, may be merely indicative. Every item you see on the screen can differ, due to the calibration of the screen itself, the lighting, the angle, etc.

The following terms apply to any return or exchange of FRESS products:

DAMAGED ORDERS – All products sold by FRESS are inspected and subjected to rigorous quality checks. Once the post-production quality control process is complete, all items are checked before being packed and transported. However, when you receive your order, we recommend that you inspect the packaging and check for any marks on the outside that may indicate damage to the product.

If you decide to exchange an item transported by one of the courier companies hired by FRESS, you can contact us at site@fress.pt and we will correct or replace your order.

If transport and delivery was carried out by a courier hired by the customer, you should write your complaint on the delivery note given to you by the courier and document any damage as best you can.

We can help you to obtain a refund or a new product paid for by the courier or insurance company.

FRESS cannot be held responsible if you fail to provide evidence of the condition of the packaging.

INCOMPLETE OR DEFECTIVE ORDERS – if your order is incomplete or defective, please contact us at site@fress.pt and describe the problem, providing images as evidence where possible. FRESS will replace the item as long as it is available in stock.
