What does my Warranty include?
Your purchase will be warranted for 100 days from the date of purchase indicated on your invoice. If you purchase an extended 1 year limited warranty, your purchase will be warranted for 1 year from the date of purchase indicated on your invoice. If you call us with an issue during the warranty period and the problem is covered under the limited warranty, we will attempt to diagnose and fix the problem over the phone. If a replacement part is necessary, we will ship you, at our cost, a refurbished replacement part. Certain exclusions apply. Click here for the warranty terms. The limited warranty does not apply to our AS IS specials which are only guaranteed working upon receipt. For an open box purchase, please refer to the Dell factory warranty that is provided for each unit. You may also be eligible to purchase additional warranty directly from Dell. Please refer to the Transfer of Ownership section for further details.

Where can I receive technical information?
Simply go to:
www.support.dell.com website. You will need to
type the Product Code number into the Service Tag area and select Go. You will be presented with all relevant information which is associated with the unit in question; this includes documentation, system specifications and available software downloads.

What are my payment options?
We accept VISA and MasterCard. Financing is not available.
Do I have to pay taxes for my personal purchase?
Local Provincial Sales Taxes and Goods & Services Tax (GST/HST) will be charged on your purchase. DFS is registered in all Canadian provinces and as such must charge whatever taxes are standard in that particular province. Please note that we cannot process personal PST exempt orders (i.e. Indian Status)
What is the return policy?
You may return the products purchased from DFS within thirty (30) days from the date of the DFS invoice and obtain a credit of the purchase price (excluding shipping and handling charges) to the credit card account used to purchase the products. To return products, you must call DFS at 800.891.8595 to receive a Return Material Authorization and instructions on returning the system back to DFS. For complete details on our return policy please see Terms Conditions of Sale.
Is there a restocking fee if I return the product?
Yes, unless the product is defective (as reasonably determined by DFS at DFS' sole discretion) or the return is a direct result of a DFS error, DFS may charge a restocking fee up to 15 percent of the purchase price paid.
What if I receive a damaged system?
If you receive a shipment that is damaged this should be noted immediately upon receipt/delivery with the Courier driver. This can also be noted when signing for delivery (i.e. your signature – followed by the word “damaged”).
Damage during shipment must be reported within 24hrs of receipt/delivery by contacting DFSDirect at 800-891-8595 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
