Dell Financial Services Limited Warranty Policy
Dell Financial Services (DFS) is dedicated to supplying reliable, durable and low cost refurbished Dell computers to the US marketplace. Our Austin, Texas based team takes great pride in our products and reputation and is dedicated to our customer's complete satisfaction. We stand behind every product we sell with a 100 day limited warranty. Our entire team looks forward to earning your business.
Every system we sell must pass stringent Dell refurbishment specifications at an authorized Dell refurbishment partner in accordance with monitored Dell processes and procedures. This includes an extensive functional test to ensure systems meet factory specifications and a thorough cleaning and wipe down. Refurbished systems may have some minor cosmetic imperfections, but they will not affect the performance of the system.

What will DFS do?
(Excluding holidays)If you call us with a technical issue at any time during the warranty period, we will first determine if the problem is covered under the limited warranty. If not, we will notify you of this determination. If the problem is covered under this limited warranty, we will attempt to diagnose and fix the problem over the phone. If a replacement part is necessary to fix the problem, we will ship you, at our cost, a refurbished replacement part. If the part is out of stock, we will either back order the part or issue you a credit for the refurbished market value of the defective part as determined by DFS. Such credit will fulfill our obligations under the limited warranty for the defective part. We will not ship to an address outside of the United States. We will assist you in replacing the defective part with the replacement part over the phone if you call Customer Service. Once the replacement part is installed and your system is working properly, we may require you to send the defective part to us.
During the first 30 days of ownership: In addition to the parts replacement process described above, you may also return the product for a refund during the first 30 days from the invoice date (excluding shipping and handling charges and applicable restocking fees). Prior to any return, however, you must call customer service and request a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. If you do not call customer service, your return may be rejected. To be eligible for return, the Products must be in the same condition as when shipped to Customer and all of the manuals, diskettes, power cords, software and other items included with the Products must also be returned. You must return the entire system to us in its original or equivalent packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk if the product is lost or damaged in shipment. See Important additional terms and conditions Here.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to us, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage device(s) in the product(s). Remove any confidential, proprietary, or personal information and removable media such as floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. We are not responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary, or personal information; lost or corrupted data; or damaged or lost removable media.
We use refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing under this warranty. All parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality. Replacement parts and systems are covered for the period of the limited warranty for the product you bought. DFS owns all parts returned to DFS.
May I transfer the limited warranty?
DFS's limited warranty may not be transferred. Some products offered by DFS may be covered by a warranty provided in writing by the manufacturer when the products were originally sold. To the extent assignable, DFS assigns to Customer any such warranty provided by the manufacturer. DFS does not warrant any software under this Agreement. Warranties, if any, for the software are contained in the license agreement that governs its purchase and use.
