    Understanding Your Refurbished Warranty

    Our refurbished PCs are sold with a 12-month carry-in hardware warranty. As such, any hardware fault encountered within the first year of purchase, will be covered by this warranty.


    Warranty for Business-to-Business (B2B) and Resellers:

    We offer a free Collect & Return Warranty to all customers in Cape Town and close surroundings.

    For all B2B and Reseller customers outside of Cape Town, we offer a Collect and Replace Warranty, where Universe Direct will collect the faulty unit / part and replace with a working unit / part, at our expense.

    All Collect & Return / Collect & Replace Warranties are subject to an initial remote support session, to evaluate if the issue can be solved remotely.

    If a replacement part is not available immediately, then a replacement unit will be provided, instead. Should both a replacement part and replacement unit not be available, immediately, then a replacement part will be ordered in. ETA on replacement parts ordered in, is 2 weeks.


    Hardware faults within 7 working days of receipt (Non-B2B Customers):

    Should you encounter a hardware fault within the first 7 working days of receiving an item, Universe Direct will arrange to have the item collected and fixed / replaced at our expense if the issue cannot be resolved remotely.

    It is of the utmost importance that out-of-box failures be reported immediately, as to ensure that the issue is resolved as speedily as possible.

    Out-of-box failures can be reported by calling our technical support line on 021 551 6254 or by emailing


    Hardware faults outside of 7 working days after receipt (Non-B2B Customers):

    Customers will be required to return the faulty item(s) to Universe Direct, at their expense. Alternatively, you can contact us on 021 551 6254 and request a quotation on our Collect & Return service. Upon acceptance of the quotation, Universe Direct will arrange the collection and return on the customer's behalf.
