All of our blade servers are shipped in custom made packaging for maximum protection and secure transit.
We don't include power cables with blade servers as they cannot be used as standalone systems and always take power from the blade enclosure.
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. This obviously has very little effect on the robust metal case and the system 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.
Our refurbished servers have been usually been removed from working environments in large corporate data centers 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 30-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 servers we sell are designed with robust architecture for the ultimate reliability.
Our standard 30 day warranty provides sufficient time to allow you to fully 'soak test' your purchase and discover any unlikely, underlying issues. We always have parts in stock and will provide favorable pricing to existing customers any time after this 30-day period.
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.
For reasons detailed above, we dont presently offer any extended warranty options. This is however something which may become available in the future if our customer demands change and as our business systems expand to cater for those demands.
If you have any problems with your order you can find full contact details and instructions on our returns and refunds contact page.
