For purposes when calculating depreciation, lifetime warranty products will be based on 5 years.

Returns of software, games or consumable products will not be accepted unless it’s for a warranty claim.
  5. We guarantee a new replacement for DOA (Dead On Arrival) products within 7 days of receiving the product or the date of invoice. This guarantee is subject to stock availability, if stock is not available you can choose a store credit or a refund.  This guarantee will be subject to our approval once the product has been returned to us and tested. All shipping costs involved in processing of DOA goods will be fully covered by us. Products claimed under DOA are to be returned to us within 7 days of your claim otherwise it will be treated as a normal warranty claim.
  6. Advance replacement is only available for DOA products if the customer purchases and pays for the same item again. Once the faulty product is returned and approved to meet the warranty terms and conditions, we will then credit/refund your account.
  7. If goods received are not as ordered, please inform us within 24 hours of receiving the delivery, do not open any packaging or use the goods as it will be deemed an acceptance of goods and will not be accepted for return.
  8. There will be no credit or refund given on the price difference of the ordered items due to price changes once the product has been dispatched.

  3. Cancellations must be informed to us ‘in writing’ as soon as possible, any cancellation after a product has been packed and dispatched will result in the customer liable for all shipping and handling charges as well as any cancellation fees that may apply.


  1. Warranty:


  1. All products sold by us carry a full manufacturer warranty. We will process all warranty claims with the manufacturer on behalf of customers unless the manufacturer has a direct warranty option to the customer.  Some products do offer an extended limited warranty which customers may require registration with the manufacturer.  In the event of a manufacturer or supplier closure, we will endeavour to fulfil our warranty commitments however we cannot guarantee the outcome.
  2. Any product returned for a warranty claim, depending on its age and availability, will generally be repaired, replaced with new or refurbished, upgraded or refunded by the manufacturers.
  3. Manufacturers offering lifetime warranty refer to the lifetime of the product (assuming the product is still available from the manufacturer) unless specified otherwise. In the event that the product becomes obsolete, it may be upgraded to a similar product or a credit will be given at the current market value or purchase price whichever is lower; however the outcome is entirely dependent on each manufacturer’s policy.
  4. CompuCoast does not handle warranty returns for products that already provide a local or direct manufacturer to customer warranty service. These products include printers, scanners, networking products and monitors and many other retail products. Please read the manufacturer’s warranty terms and conditions for the specific details.
  5. Warranty is provided solely on products sold by CompuCoast. Other faulty products used in conjunction that are not purchased from CompuCoast will not be covered under warranty.
  6. Any product sold by CompuCoast is meant to be professionally installed; improper installation is NOT covered under warranty. Please seek a professional assistance if required, to avoid paying any unnecessary cost for replacement or repair.
  7. CompuCoast does NOT cover any software installation issues e.g. drivers or system software updates for any computer where CompuCoast did not install the software originally. Should any warranty claims arise where software is at fault, installed by the customer, standard charges will apply.
  8. CompuCoast will NOT be liable in any way for incidental, consequential or indirect loss resulting from faulty systems or parts. CompuCoast is not responsible for any data loss; backing up of data is the responsibility of the customer. CompuCoast does not provide a backup or data recovery service when sending hard disks for warranty claims. Hard drives sent for warranty are always replaced with a new/refurbished unit.
  9. Warranty will be void for any non-manufacturing defects, if the item is found to be mishandled, modified, tampered, abused, physically damaged, improperly installed and used, or damaged caused by power surges, electrical faults and lightning strikes. Products returned that show evidence of user induced damage, overclocking, tampering or modification, will be denied. This includes improper installation of the CPU heatsink, scratches on motherboard, failure of fan/heatsink, cutting of cables or the soldering of components.
  10. Under the Return to Base warranty policy, all shipping charges for any product returned to CompuCoast incurred in a warranty claim will be at the expense of the customer. CompuCoast will only pay for the return freight to the customer, except for rejected warranty, non-faulty returns or bulky items older than 6 months from date of invoice.
  11. Warranty must be properly packaged in the condition acceptable by the vendor (please provide original packaging if possible or adequate safe packaging as insufficient safe packaging that caused physical damage will result in warranty being voided).
  12. Turnaround time for warranty returns may depend on the availability of the replacement product from the manufacturer. The process of warranty returns involves the shipping of warranty to CompuCoast, product testing time, obtaining approval from the supplier, the shipping of warranty to our supplier, supplier’s own testing, shipment back to us, testing of the part if it’s a repaired item, and finally shipment back to the end user.
  13. A large percentage of warranty returns are tested to be without fault. In the event the product is not faulty, CompuCoast reserves the right to charge a maximum labour fee of $50 per product for time spent on testing the product.
  14. CompuCoast will not be responsible for keeping any warranty returns that are unclaimed or have not been picked up for more than 3 months. Customer must always leave a valid contact detail for warranty.
