Unwanted Items

If you have changed your mind about the goods ordered and wish to return them, then you can do so provided you request your RMA within 14 days of receipt. The goods must be in 'as new' condition when returned. 'As new' means:

  • the goods have not been used

  • the goods are unmarked
  • the goods are in a condition that would enable us to resell them as new
  • Software seals are intact

Carriage costs for returning the goods are your responsibility.

Returns should be made with the original, undamaged packaging.

Cost of returning unwanted items is the buyers responsibility.

Goods Faulty on Arrival (DOA)

If unfortunately your goods are delivered faulty or develop a fault in the first 48 hours please log into 'your account' to raise an RMA, giving us a description of the fault, together with the manufacturer case reference number (if you have one).

Faulty goods in the first 30 days

Firstly, please contact the manufacturer or our technical support to obtain a case reference number. Then log into 'your account' to raise an RMA, giving us a description of the fault, together with the manufacturer or our technical support reference number.

If the goods are faulty

  • We will send you a replacement unit or offer a full refund (see table above).
  • We shall refund to you the return shipping costs you have incurred based upon the Royal Mail Standard Parcel Service rates.

If the items are not faulty

  • We will provide you with a test report

Faulty goods after 30 days

If your goods develop a fault after 30 days of delivery we reserve the right to return the product to the manufacturer for repair or replacement. Please notify us regarding the fault as soon as possible.

If this unfortunately should happen, you can either return the item to the manufacturer or MCL Data Solutions. In most cases it is quicker to return the item to the manufacturer directly as they offer product warranties and may be able to offer on-site replacements.
