What is Tekserve’s return policy?

Items may be returned to Tekserve within 14 days from when you received your purchase. The original packaging and accessories are required for all returns. Please let us know if you prefer an exchange, replacement, or refund when you request a return by mail or visit Tekserve to return your item. You are responsible for return shipping charges. Opened items will be charged a 15% restocking fee.

Defective items will be exchanged without a restocking fee. We encourage you to call the manufacturer of your item for technical support before returning it. About half the time, the manufacturer can fix the problem faster than we can replace the item. If you can not return the item to Tekserve, almost all products have a manufacturer warranty that will provide a repair or exchange for the malfunctioning item. Tekserve has a lifetime warranty on our memory (RAM) and cables.

The following items may not be returned once opened (defective items will be exchanged):



In-ear buds

Printers with installed ink or toner

Ink and toner

Why did I get call from Tekserve’s verification department requesting more information?

In order to prevent credit card fraud and offer you the lowest prices possible, we may require additional information to process your order. In order to prevent these delays, please call your credit card company to authorize your shipping address (if it is different from your billing address).

If your order requires additional verification, you will receive a call and/or email from us within one business day of placing your order. Your order will not be processed until we hear from you.

Online credit card fraud is a major problem. Fraud forces businesses to charge higher prices, credit card companies to charge higher fees, and consumers to spend an average of 30 hours recovering from identity fraud. Educate yourself about common scams and protect your personal information with tips from avoiding spam, viruses, and other deliberately bad stuff.
