You are entitled to request a return of any goods for any reason within 5 working days from their receipt. Any damaged goods must be notified to us verbally (and in writing via e-mail or fax) within two working days of receipt. Any items found damaged after this time will not be accepted back for a return. As well as a full refund, Datek Solutions will also refund any relevant consequential loss involved such as posting or delivery charges if the products are found to be faulty, sold incorrectly or otherwise not fit for their intended purpose. If you are returning a faulty item, first establish whether or not the good(s) are in fact faulty. It may well be that the item works perfectly well but does not tie in with your system correctly due to a configuration or set up problem. If you are unsure about any of this, please contact us and we can pass on the relevant manufacturers details.

If the goods are definitely faulty or if they have been shipped in error, you need to complete the returns form.

 

Once we have received and validated your form, you will be contacted and issued with a returns number (RMA number). This normally takes 1-2 business days but can take longer if any details on the form have been omitted. RMA numbers cannot be issued without our knowledge of the relevant serial numbers, invoice numbers and dates involved. Note that once issued, RMA numbers will only remain valid for a period of 10 working days. If goods are not returned within this period, the return will be closed. The Company must receive the completed RMA form back within 48 working hours from time of send. As soon as you have been issued with an RMA number, you can arrange for the goods to be returned to us. Datek Solutions cannot accept responsibility for damages caused in transit so please ensure that:

 

The item(s) are properly packaged. Ensure that you use the original packaging and ensure that the products are wrapped securely to avoid movement/damage in transit. Items not packaged with a reasonable amount of care will be rejected.

 

No labels, stickers or any parts have been removed.

 

The goods have not been defaced, altered, manhandled or subjected to any other form of intentional or careless damage.

 

All supplied contents; inner and outer packaging, manuals, documentation and accessories must be included.

 

No writing or markings are made on the packaging as this may affect our ability to accept the goods back.

 

Goods are inspected by us on arrival and, if appropriate, tested. Where appropriate, replacement item(s) will be shipped. DATEK SOLUTIONS reserve the right to decide whether to issue replacement goods or a credit. Items returned where Datek Solutions have arranged collection, and do not conform to these requirements, will be charged according to any damage incurred. Datek Solutions will only meet shipping costs for returns in the case of an error on our part or in cases where the goods are faulty, sold incorrectly or are not suitable for the purpose for which they are intended.

 

For account holders, it may be possible to arrange an advanced replacement. If you require replacement goods to be sent to you before we receive the returned items, you will be invoiced at the original sales price and we will quote your original purchase order number on all documentation followed by the reference /R at the end of the PO. Once we receive the returned products, and providing that they comply with the above procedure, we will credit your account with the appropriate sale price.
