PC Warranty Information
What does this warranty cover?
All PCs that we supply are warranted free from defects caused by hardware or labour.
How long is the warranty?
For PCs sold on our website, our standard warranty lasts for 3 years from the day you receive the PC. Proof of purchase will be required.
What is not covered?
The warranty does not cover any defect arising from wear and tear, wilful or accidental damage, negligence by you or any third party (e.g. not using a surge protector), use otherwise than as recommended by us, failure to follow our instructions or any alteration or repair carried out without our approval.
What Fierce PC will do?
Any PCs found by us to be defective during the warranty period will be repaired or replaced. Usually this means replacing a faulty component with a new component of the same or better value.
How to claim for a warranty repair?
Please contact the retailer where you purchased the PC for help on claiming under warranty as they will be familiar with their own procedures. If you purchased the PC direct from our website (fiercepc.co.uk), please follow the instructions below.
How to claim for a warranty repair (purchased through fiercepc.co.uk)?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your original order number and a description of the fault. A team member will contact you and where possible, guide you through resolving the problem yourself. If the PC needs to be returned for repair, we will issue you with an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorisation) number and provide further details. All products being returned under warranty must have been issued with an RMA number. Any PCs received without an RMA number will be rejected and where possible, returned to sender.
What costs are involved? / Who pays the postage?
If you need to return a PC for repair within 30 days of receiving it, we will arrange collection by courier. After 30 days, returning the PC to us should be arranged by the customer. Any PCs confirmed by us to be defective under warranty will be repaired and returned to you at our cost.
Any PC returned to us and found to be not defective, or not covered by our warranty, will be subject to postage costs and an inspection fee. Please contact us for current costs.
How should the PC be packaged for return under warranty?
It is important that returned PCs are packaged correctly as neither we nor our courier will accept liability for damage caused during transit due to insufficient packaging. We recommend retaining the original packaging as you can use this to package the PC in the same manner as when you received it. Please ensure any air packaging is still inflated and in good condition, otherwise you will need to substitute this with similar packaging. Full packaging instructions are available on our website.
