Quality is VERY important to us. Different suppliers have different definitions of the word refurbished. We define refurbished as "like new" both in terms of performance and cosmetic appearance. We offer consistently high quality.
We often receive equipment from other dealers that they call refurbished. Not by our definition, and certainly not with our name on it! Look for our logo preprinted on the box to assure quality.
We use our own professional refurbishing facility, Michigan Data Equipment (MDE). Our specifications call for:
- audit equipment as received
- self test
- dismantle equipment
- clean and paint cases and covers as necessary
- rebuild equipment to correct specification and configuration
- thoroughly test all appropriate functions
- pack equipment in foam
- use new, sturdy shipping cartons (uniformly packaged)
- label with model and serial number(s)
- 90 day depot warranty (except where noted)
- printed manuals and printer cables are available for an additional charge
- supply items are NOT included
- We stand behind our equipment 100%!
Argecy guarantees our refurbished printers, accessories and parts free from defects for 90 days from date of purchase unless otherwise stated. Items found to be defective will be repaired or replaced at our option. Warranty does not cover misuse or mishandling of equipment. Warranty is void if tamper seals are broken. Supply items are NOT included.
If you receive equipment that is faulty or non-functional, or irrecoverable failures occur during the warranty period, you must call and speak to one of our representatives and technical advisers before any returns or repairs can be authorized. Equipment will be replaced as necessary using ground transportation for shipment. If you need faster service on warranty claims, you may opt to increase the service, but you will be responsible for the difference compared to regular ground.
For DOA failures within the first five (5) business days after receipt, Argecy will be responsible for repair or replacement ground freight costs. After that time period, until the end of Argecy warranty, customers are responsible for the return of any RMA item(s) to Argecy, including freight charges, packaging, and shipping label(s). Items to be returned must be packaged with materials equivalent to the way the customer received the original shipment. All packing materials be kept until the items are determined to be in satisfactory condition. You are responsible for all freight costs.

This reference number will help ensure that you will get the proper credit for sending in the core. Defective parts must be repairable and in "as failed" condition. Parts must be received within 10 days.
COD Advance Exchange orders are initially charged at the Full Sale Price, with separate charges for both the Exchange Price and Core listed on the invoice. Upon receipt of the defective part (required back within 10 days) a refund, credit to your card or account will be issued. Refunds will be issued by the same method of payment used for the original purchase. Check refunds usually take 30 days.
