Return Authorisation (RA) Policy

When returning product to Alloy Computer Products for any reason, you must first contact Alloy and obtain an RA number from the Technical/Service department. Request an RA Number.

After obtaining an RA number from Alloy, you must send the product - freight prepaid by you – to Alloy Computer Products. The Alloy RA number must be prominently displayed on the outside of your package. If you send your product to Alloy without the RA number prominently displayed on the outside of the package, it will be returned to you unopened.

Please use a shipping company that can demonstrate proof of delivery. Alloy does not accept responsibility for any lost shipments unless proof of delivery to Alloy is provided.

When shipping your product back to Alloy for repair/replacement please ship, the product only. Do not return any accessories or packaging. Alloy will then return the product to you in the same packaging that you sent it to us. Products shipped to Alloy must be properly packaged to prevent loss or damage in transit.

Shipping your RA to Alloy using regular mailing envelopes is not acceptable, as they do not protect the product from damage during shipping.

Alloy will not repair or replace a product that is shipped in such a way that the product is not properly protected.

Alloy will not accept any product that has been damaged as a result of accident, abuse, misuse, natural or personal disaster, or any unauthorized disassemble, repair or modification.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
