2. DOA, DAMAGED, MANUFACTURER-APPROVED RETURNS AUTHORITY OR INCORRECTLY SHIPPED PRODUCTS

If your product is dead on arrival, damaged in transit, has a manufacturer-approved return authority or is incorrectly shipped, contact our Customer Service team. To expedite your return, the product must be returned to us within 14 days of purchase. You will be issued with a Return Authorisation Number in accordance with our Returns Policy. Harris Technology will not accept any product for return which does not have a Return Authorisation Number. Each Return Authorisation Number is only valid for one order and must match the product authorised for return. The Return Authorisation Number is valid for 7 days. You will need the following information, most of which will be on your packing slip or invoice, before we can issue a Return Authorisation Number:

  • Name and contact details of original purchaser;
  • Invoice number or order number;
  • Part number of product to be returned;
  • Item serial number;
  • Date on packing slip or invoice;
  • Whether the product box has been opened; and
  • Reason for return.

You will need to package and address the product for return including all accessories and manuals. You must ensure that the returned product is suitably packaged to prevent damage during return shipping. Harris Technology will not accept responsibility for goods, which are damaged whilst in transit back to a Harris Technology location. You can also return the product to one of our Business Centres or we will arrange to pick the product up from you. We will only arrange to collect goods that are dead on arrival, damaged in transit or incorrectly shipped. You will need to keep a copy of the consignment note as proof that the product has been picked up from you.

Harris Technology will test the returned product within 7 working days of receipt into our warehouse. The product may need to be returned to the manufacturer for testing.

If you return a product because it was dead on arrival but we find that the product is in full working condition or any defects or damage were caused after you took receipt of the product, it will be returned to you. You may be invoiced a processing fee and any freight costs associated with the return. These invoiced amounts will be payable within 30 days of receipt of invoice.

If Harris Technology (or the manufacturer) determines that the product is defective, we will issue a credit for the original purchase price of the product and associated freight costs.

If you receive a product that is damaged in transit from Harris Technology, you should

  • Refuse to accept delivery of the product;

If a product, purchased from Harris Technology, develops a fault after 14 days from original purchase and is within the manufacturer’s warranty period, we recommend that in the first instance, you contact the manufacturer or their authorised service centre or agent for warranty service. Warranty periods and service levels vary by manufacturer and product.

If a manufacturer offers to accept an opened product for return, you will need a manufacturer-approved return authority number. Please contact our Customer Service team with this number to organise the return of the product.

If the manufacturer directs you to return the product to the manufacturer, agent or a third party, then you should arrange for the product to be returned as directed and otherwise in accordance with the manufacturers returns policy.

If the manufacturer directs you to return the product to us as the retailer, then you should contact our Customer Service team as soon as possible. Where possible you will need to package and address the product for return and you will need to arrange for return delivery of the product. Harris Technology must receive the product by the time specified by the manufacturer. Please note that repair timeframes are subject to each manufacturer’s warranty repair service and may vary.

If the fault does not fit the above criteria and is not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty or extended warranty (where applicable), then Harris Technology will provide you with a quote for the repair costs and ask if you wish to proceed with the repair.
