Policy on Returns (RMA)

Return Policy

Computer Solutionz will replace any item found to be faulty under the terms of the manufacturers guarantee.  We are charged a fee for products sent back to the manufacturer as faulty that are found not to be faulty when tested, we also lose money in postage and packaging, for this reason we must test all products returned before issuing any refunds or replacements.  Please also read the Terms & Conditions before returning an item.

Warranty’s are, unless otherwise stated, a Return To Base warranty.  This means that it is down to you as the customer to return and collect the product for the shop premises.  Some products, such as monitors and printers, come with an On Site Warranty.  This warranty service is provided by the manufacture and you should therefore contact the manufacturer, not us, if the product is faulty.

Return Procedure

When returning an item, please make sure the product is properly packaged and includes all the manuals, CD’s, cables and anything else that came with the product when purchased.  Products must still be in like new and re-sellable condition for the purchase to be refunded for credit.

Please make sure you have the correct receipt, this is very important, without this we cannot track where the product came from and can therefore not return the item for repair/replacement.

If any exchange is required, Computer Solutionz will only ship out the product AFTER we’ve received and inspected the returned package. Computer Solutionz cannot process any cross shipments. For credit refunds, Computer Solutionz will either refund your money or credit back to your credit card.  It takes up to 4 weeks for processing RMA return, up to 3 business days for refund to credit card account, and 2 extra weeks to process a refund check to prepaid customer.

Products with physical damage caused by the customer, removed and altered warranty stickers or serial number will automatically void the warranty and thus void the return.

Credits, Refunds, and Exchanges

Returned merchandise must still be in like-new and re-sellable condition and be accompanied with all original packaging, documentation and accessories. Failure to do so will result in the void of the return for refund. Computer Solutionz reserves the right to refuse any merchandise or to impose a 15% minimum restocking fee for any returns not meeting the above requirement.
