Service notice: Delays on shipments possible
We would like to inform you of a temporary challenge we are currently experiencing in our order processing system. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We recently invested in new software to improve order processing and make it more efficient. Unfortunately, we have discovered some bugs in the software that require our attention at this time. These bugs affect the real-time push of orders to our warehouses, which in turn results in processing delays.

What does "Reference Price" mean on your product pages?
The reference price is based on the price most frequently shown to our customers in the last 60 days, excluding promotions. At Hondenhoek we use fluctuating prices to meet the wishes of our customers and to offer the best possible sales price. As a result, we strive to ensure transparency and competitive advantage.
I had products in my shopping cart, but now they are sold out or more expensive!
Please note that products may be sold out or subject to change in price up to the time of payment and receipt of order confirmation. This can be to your advantage or disadvantage. At Hondenhoek we make daily price changes, but we do not always pass on the full price increases. Since August 10, 2022, we have been revising our prices due to the known increase in raw materials. As a result, the prices of products may have become either higher or lower in the meantime.

At Hondenhoek we strive to process your order as quickly as possible, so that you do not have to wait long for your products.

We will do our best to fulfill your request and assist you further.
I have not received an order confirmation, what now?
Please ensure that you have entered your email address correctly when placing your order. You will receive an automatic order confirmation within a maximum of 5 minutes. Have you still not received an email after 5 minutes? Then check your spam folder. If the confirmation cannot be found there either, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or the contact form below. We are happy to help you.

Returns & warranty
I am not satisfied with my purchase, what now?
Most products we sell are covered by our 14-day money back guarantee. Please note that personalized items cannot be returned. For more information about our returns process, please contact us via email@example.com or the contact form below.
Can I return my Hondenhoek Clothing product?
Please note that all of our clothing items are non-returnable. This is because our clothing is printed on-demand and we do not have stock of items already produced. Each garment is made especially for you once the order is placed.
We do everything we can to ensure that our products are of the highest quality. However, should an error occur during the printing process or if the product arrives damaged, we will be happy to replace it for you. In that case, please contact our customer service so that we can assess the situation and provide an appropriate solution.
Can I return my Hondenhoek Dog Food?
Unfortunately, fresh product is not covered by our returns policy. However, if you encounter any problem with the product, please immediately take clear photos and contact our customer service. We will work with you to explore possible solutions.
Can I return my personalized product?
Unfortunately, personalized products cannot be returned. In case of damage upon receipt, we will provide a suitable solution. Evidence via photos and/or videos is always necessary to identify the problem and discuss it with our specialists. This not only helps in finding an immediate solution, but also in preventing similar situations in the future.
How do I return my products?
Before returning a product, you must always contact us for the necessary instructions. Please ensure that you return the product in sturdy and undamaged packaging. Please remember to include all relevant information, as provided by our customer service, on the returns form so that your return can be processed quickly and correctly. Please note: We do not currently offer prepaid return labels and return costs are the buyer's responsibility and will not be reimbursed.
When can I expect my refund?
After we receive your return, it will always be thoroughly inspected. The product must not be used and/or damaged. Once the inspection is complete and our customer service team has confirmed your return, you can expect your refund within an average of 3-5 business days. The refund will always be made in the same way as you originally paid. Please note that we cannot issue refunds to other bank accounts or cards.
Can I refuse an order at the door?
Although you have the right to refuse the order upon delivery, we strongly advise against this. If you refuse the order, the returns process will be initiated, which can often take several weeks to months. This is because the order must go through an economically viable return process before our supplier can refund us and we can refund you. To ensure efficient handling of your return and refund, we advise you to always accept the order and follow the normal returns process.
