The features below will help make your shopping experience even easier.
Home page link: You can get back to our home page at any time by clicking on the Quba & Co logo which appears centrally at the top of each page.

Does the website stock the same items as your stores?
Not all items sold in our shops are available for you to buy online. However nearly all the items we sell online can be found in a Quba & Co store. We would advise you to contact the local branch before making a special visit as in some circumstances the store may not stock a full range or the item may be out of stock.
How do I use your Search engine?
The Quba & Co Search engine works by checking your search term against all the product titles and product codes currently on the website. It then shows products on the page that may match your query. Options to further filter the search results by colour, size, gender and reviews are also available.
You can search in broad terms such as 'Shirts', or be more precise such as 'check shirt'. You'll get most precise results by searching for a stock code or exact product name which you may have obtained from our catalogue or by visiting a Quba & Co stores.
What payment options do you accept?
We offer various ways for you to pay for your items, including: Visa; MasterCard; Delta; Maestro; Solo; Quba & Co's eVouchers. You may use a combination of eVouchers and any payment card we accept to pay for your order.

Shopping with Us
How do I know what size to choose?
Our sizing guide gives general advice about buying and caring for our range of products.
Do you have a guarantee on your garments?
Great care and attention go into providing our customers with high quality, well made products. If you do receive a faulty or damaged item or find that the item becomes faulty within 6 months of purchase it will need to be sent back to us for inspection. Items will need to be returned with proof of purchase where possible with your full contact details. Items that are sent back because of a fault will be exchanged where possible (or in the case of a jacket repaired) or refunded for the price paid. If an item is older than six months a gift voucher may be issued up to the value of the price paid. For our Quba & Co jackets we offer a 2 year guarantee. If proof of purchase can not be provided, credit note and exchange values will be processed at the current selling price of the product returned.
Does your prices include VAT?
All our prices include VAT but exclude delivery charges. Our online prices are the same as in Quba & Co stores, although occasionally you may find a lower price in one of our outlet stores, or online if we have a quba.com special offer. The prices in our catalogues are the same as in our shops at the time of going to press, but may be subject to change during the life of a catalogue.
Despite our best efforts, occasionally errors may occur where prices are displayed incorrectly. If a product's correct price is lower than the stated price, we will charge you the lower amount and send you the product. If however, a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will contact you for instructions before dispatch. We will only charge your card on the day goods are dispatched.

What is Verified by Visa and Mastercard® SecureCode™?
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring shopping online is safe and secure for you, we've partnered with 'Verified by Visa' and 'MasterCard Secure code'. If you use a VISA or MasterCard credit or debit card to make a purchase, depending on the card issuer or bank, you will be able to benefit from additional security during the checkout process.
The benefits are:
Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure code helps to protect your card against unauthorised use when you shop online by requiring you to enter a personal password each time you buy. You only need to register once to create your password and during registration you will be communicating directly with your card issuer via a secure link. We won't be able to see the information you enter.
What if I am already registered?
If you have already registered, you will be asked to enter your personal password during the online checkout process in order to complete your purchase
What do I need to do to register?
If you have not yet registered for Verified by Visa or MasterCard, you will have the opportunity to do so during the checkout process by entering in your details which will be sent via a secure link to your card issuer. Once the card issuer has confirmed your identity, you will be asked to choose a password and we will be able to complete your order. You will then use the same password each time you purchase online at participating stores. Please note if you choose not to register during the check out process, depending on your card issuer, we may not be able to process your order. A different method of payment will be required to complete your order.
For more information on Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure code contact your card issuer or bank directly.
Please note: Your Verified by Visa or Mastercard SecureCode™
password is not your quba.com account password. We do not have
access to your Verified by Visa or Mastercard SecureCode™
What is phishing?
Phishing is the practice of tricking someone into giving confidential information. Examples include falsely claiming to be a legitimate company when sending an e-mail to a user, in an attempt to get the user to send private information that will be used for identity theft and fraud. Please note that we'll never ask you to send any personal details via email. If we require such details, for security reasons we'll ask you to contact us by phone. Should you receive an email claiming to be from quba.com requesting this kind of information, please do not respond but let us know.

Made to order cancellations: Please note that should you wish to cancel your customised jacket, bag, beanbag or sofa for any reason, it's unlikely that we could sell it to another customer at full selling price.

How long will it take to custom make my Quba sailcloth product?
Each jacket is customised by hand in Devon. Great care and attention goes into each jacket and therefore please allow up to 4 weeks for the product to be made and delivered to you. If you need it sooner please call us on 0870 777 1651 for up-to-date production times.
What if I want more customising options?
Just give us a call; one of the design team at Quba & Co will go through all the design options with you, to ensure that you have a jacket/bag that is completely unique to you. Call us 0870 777 1651
Where are the individual and customised jackets and bags made?
All one off or custom designed jackets and bags are made in our own manufacturing unit in South Devon.
I have got an old Sail; can I use it to make a Jacket?
There is nothing better than having a jacket or bag made up from your own sail, you will then have a jacket that is truly unique to you. As a general rule main sails make good bags and Genoas and Gibs tend be better for Jackets, however all of this depends on the size of yacht they have come from. Unfortunately supplying your own fabric does not mean the Jacket or Bag will be cheaper as the time involved cutting out an individual Jacket or Bag from an individual sail can often take longer. If however you can supply a significant quantity of usable fabric we can look at the possibility of discounting your customised items. Please call Head Office on + 44 (0) 870 777 1651
