The Consumer Rights Act makes it an implied term of the contract that goods I receive must be of satisfactory quality and for the reasons stated above they are not.

I also require you to confirm whether you will arrange for the [item] to be collected or that you wish me to return this and that you will reimburse me for the cost of returning the [item] and arranging adequate insurance.

I look forward to hearing from you.
