Refurbished equipment:

Refurbished HP LaserJet printers include a 12 month on-site repair warranty. The service covers rectification of hardware failure to restore the printer to the configuration and functionality that existed prior to the failure. An engineer will normally attend on-site within 24 to 48 hours of a fault call being logged. (Monday to Friday) For printer with a fault within 30 days of delivery, at our discretion a replacement printer may be supplied in place of the On-Site engineer visit. Likewise if a printer cannot be repaired on-site by our engineer a replacement unit will be provided.

Any hardware failure or damage caused by the user will not be covered under the warranty and a standard call out charge of £120 + vat will be made in this instance.

The on-site warranty is only available to mainland UK and Northern Ireland, warranty may be available in other areas but customer must contact us first to check availability. (In areas not covered by the on-site service customers can return an item to us for repair)

The service does not cover replacement or damage to consumable items such as toners, and paper feed rollers. Such consumable items can be replaced by the engineer but may be chargeable. Cost for replacement items will be advised prior to installation. Fuser units are also classed as a consumable item as there is a set maintenance cycle for most HP printers which would involve replacing the fuser unit, however as long as the fuser is still within the set page count limit  we give the same 6 month limited warranty as our refurbished units. please see below for further details of the warranty.  

All of our JetDirect cards come with our full 24 month replacement warranty and 100 percent guarantee of satisfaction. If in the unlikely event you are unhappy with any of our JetDirect cards or external print servers, they can be returned at your expense for a refund within 7 days of purchase. A restocking charge of £15 will be made to cover original postage, packaging and handling costs.

Refurbished Maintenance Kits and Fusers come with a 6 month unit replacement warranty. This warranty covers any fuser which displays an Error 50 code or other hardware failure but does not cover damage to the fuser film. However, if you return the damaged fuser to us we will be happy to replace any damaged or shredded fuser film at a fixed cost of £20 + vat. Fuser units must be within the set page life as set by HP and a configuration age may be required to confirm page count prior to replacement. Customer is responsible for cost of returning fuser.
