Appendix

Component Registration

What is component registration?

In order to provide top-notch service we need some information about the components each of your products are supposed to include and which components are compatible with which products.

We will ask you to complete a form which includes information about each of your components, including which of your products it can be used with.

We then clarify this information to make sure we understand, and upon your confirmation we will import this information into our system. Once we have done this our service technicians will be able to clearly understand your product component requirements while servicing your items, guaranteeing accurate service.

How does pricing work?

Our pricing for component registration is based on item - component pairings. We bill by the pairing.

For example, if you register a battery which works with 4 different products we consider that 4 registrations.

Abandoned Merchandise

We consider merchandise at our warehouse abandoned if it seems like the customer has no intention of ever having it shipped out or we've been unable to contact the customer for 90 days or more.

When we determine merchandise is abandoned we make a final effort to contact the customer, and if we do not receive a response within 10 business days we assume ownership of the merchandise and either dispose of it or liquidate it to recover any unpaid balance the customer has with us.
