4. I have received a faulty item, how do I go about exchanging it?

We take great care to pack your books carefully. However, in the event that your order is damaged (major dents) or faulty (missing pages, mis-prints), we will look into making a one-to-one exchange. Simply email us at hello@localbooks.sg the picture of the damaged book, and we will dispatch a new book for you, and collect back the previous copy.
