Products Damaged in Transit

If your product is damaged in transit, we ask that you report it to us within 3 working days (24 hours for our business customers).

Products Dead On Arrival (Up to 30 Days)

If you feel your item is faulty on arrival, we would advise contacting the manufacturer to trouble shoot the issue before organising a return with ourselves. Whilst we are happy to assist with items that fail within the units DOA period, in most cases goods that are at first thought to be faulty actually work. Often instruction books are poorly written or an item is slightly complicated to use, therefore are diagnosed as faulty by the end user incorrectly. Goods returned with no fault found are subject to a handling fee, so we wish to rule out this happening by performing trouble shooting with the manufacturer first. The handling fee can be avoided by running diagnostics with the manufacturer and if a fault is actually confirmed, obtaining the return to vendor authorisation or DOA code. As handling fees are the last thing we want for our customers, the call to the manufacturers technical helpline can often resolve the issue and prevent any unnecessary returns or inconvenience, saving you both time and handling fees for items found to be in full working order.

Once the trouble shooting has been completed, if unfortunately a fault is confirmed, please complete our online RMA request form and we will work to resolve the issue for you swiftly.

How to package items to return to us

Shipping with original Manufacturer’s Packaging

Original packaging is usually designed to ship the product once, not multiple times. Reuse can weaken the packaging and place the inside product at risk. Overboxing provides extra integrity for the weakened original manufacturer’s packaging.

Inspect the original packaging to ensure that the cushioning material and box are intact and unbroken. Make any repairs with pressure-sensitive adhesive plastic tape that is at least 2” wide. Pack the product using all the original packaging components.

Place outer carton into a black polythene bag so as to conceal the identity of the item you are returning, and place shipping label on the outside of this bag once taped up securely.


Shipping without original Manufacturer’s Packaging.

Wrap the computer or peripheral with at least 3” to 4” of air-cellular cushioning material such as bubble wrap.

Place the wrapped item inside a sturdy outer box. Accessories that are wrapped in appropriate amounts of cushioning can also be placed in any open spaces of the box.

Fill all spaces with additional cushioning so that the wrapped item fits tightly inside the box.

Close and seal both the top and bottom of the box with 3 strips of pressure-sensitive plastic tape that is at least 2” wide.

Tape all seams or flaps.

Place outer carton into a black polythene bag so as to conceal the identity of the item you are returning, and place shipping label on the outside of this bag once taped up securely.
