In addition to your legal rights, we offer a warranty on all our products. The conditions and length of the warranty as applied to your goods, will depend on the type of warranty you purchased along with your goods. Details of the various warranties are outlined below.
The standard warranty applies to all Desktop PCs unless otherwise stated on the order details. It covers the cost of all parts and labour for 2 years from the date of delivery of the goods. It covers all labour for 5 years from the date of delivery.
The main components of Laptops are covered by our Standard Laptop 22 Month Warranty above with the following exceptions. The battery is covered for 9 months from the date of delivery. The laptop screen is covered for 12 months from the date of delivery.
All Monitors and Peripherals (defined as anything that is not contained within the chassis of the PC or Laptop) should be returned directly to the manufacturer of the product under the manufacturer guarantee. Where the manufacturer specifies return of the goods to the seller (Wired2Fire Ltd) then the Standard Warranty applies. It is faster to return these products direct to the manufacturer as it removes a step in the warranty process so will result in a faster turn around.Dead Pixels
Wired2Fire Ltd operates a standard dead pixel policy as defined in ISO-9241-302, 303, 305, 307:2008. You will be deemed to have accepted your monitor under this policy by placing your order with us. Individual manufactures may have policies that exceed the standard dead pixel warranty.
Many of our computers are built using retail components. These may come with a separate manufacturer guarantee. This may allow you to obtain replacement or repair of a component outside of the standard warranty period with Wired2Fire. Please contact the manufacturer of the component to determine if there is an extended guarantee.
For an extra charge Wired2Fire Ltd will offer an extended warranty. These warranties cover the cost of collection and return to you for the entire 2 or 3 years. In addition, the 3 year extended warranty covers the costs of labour and parts for three years from the date of delivery.

As a business customer your order is not covered by consumer regulation. In general, the right to cancel will be defined in the contract of sale. We deem any order placed in the name of a company or business or paid for using a business bank account, debit or credit card as an order placed by a business and therefore not subject to the consumer regulations. Orders placed by a business do not have the right to cancel once the order has been placed (i.e. the contract of sale has been accepted).
As a consumer you may have the right to a refund if the goods are not deemed fit for purpose or are not as described. With regard to fitness for purpose of a computer your software or hardware may not be compatible with the hardware and we do not consider this as not being fit for purpose. We would suggest you use the links below to be fully informed of your consumer rights.
