When you buy re-marketed or re-manufactured IT or Telecoms equipment, do you check the warranty? You should do! A reputable supplier of refurbished, remanufactured or remarketed equipment will offer you a one-year warranty on all the products they sell. This is the industry standard and it is something you should always look for before buying. Even insist on.

In most cases, you will find the length of the warranty listed clearly amongst the product details. If not, then it is important to check the small print before you buy.

You should be wary of companies that do not clearly state the length of the warranty on the products they sell. Many of these companies will only give 90 days. Purchasing cheaper products from these companies may not save you money in the long run, especially if something goes wrong.

Re-manufacturers who are confident in the quality of their products should have no problem giving their customers a one-year warranty. This states clearly to the customer that they are a reputable company, selling quality products and have the technical know-how to fully test these products they sell. If the supplier is giving only a 90 day warranty, this gives you a valuable insight, buyer BEWARE!
