What's in the box:

All of our rackmount servers are shipped in custom made packaging for maximum protection and secure transit.


We don't include power cables with rackmount servers as our customers usually have unique cabling requirements in their data centers or rack cabinet setups. However we do sell UK power cables separately in the peripherals section of the store.

Condition & Warranty


This refurbished Server is sold in excellent condition and is marked Grade A.

Having been decommissioned from a previous work space you can expect some light cosmetic markings (scuffs and scratches) around the outer chassis/case. The system is not brand new but any scratches or blemishes are purely cosmetic and obviously have very little effect on the technical function of the system, which has been cleaned both inside and out.

We use custom made boxes (matching the original manufacturer specification) and durable expanding foam cushioning to ensure that your product arrives safely. Take a look at our reassuring packaging process.

What is refurbished?

Our refurbished Servers have been usually been removed from working environments in large corporate design office or public sector facilities due to upgrade, lease end or bankruptcy. Every Server passes through our 6-step refurbishment process which provides a complete system overhaul from our trained technicians, rebuilding every component to ensure that your machine is technically as good as new.


All refurbished Servers from bargain hardware are supported by a 90-day warranty, covering all integral hardware and parts/components that affect the functionality of the equipment.

At bargain hardware we only deal with enterprise and business class hardware from the worlds leading manufacturers. Originally sold with lengthy 3-5 year warranties, the workstations we sell are designed with robust architecture for the ultimate reliability.

Our standard 90 day warranty provides sufficient time to allow you to fully 'soak test' your purchase and discover any unlikely, underlying issues. Modern systems have at most only a single mechanical part (the hard drive) and failure rates of the main electrical components (processor, memory and motherboard) are incredibly low.

It is well publicized that extended warranty packages are very rarely a good deal for the customer. The administrative costs involved in storing and tracking extended warranty details would increase our costs and therefore our prices. Feedback suggests that customers are more than happy with our quality and service, and would prefer us to maintain our highly competitive pricing.

Is extended warranty available?

For reasons detailed above, we dont have any standard extended warranty options. If this is likely to be an issue please contact us and we can talk about potential options.
