Great deals await on Certified Factory Refurbished products.
by Perry Solomon
A lot of e-commerce websites have outlet stores for bargain hunters, and Aleratec is no exception. Outlet sections are a great way to make room in the warehouse by selling products at reduced prices. Not all outlet stores are created equal, however. Aleratec’s Outlet Store sells Certified Factory Refurbished hard disk drive duplicators, USB duplicators, shedders and other Aleratec products, and it’s popular among customers who appreciate a good bargain. If you haven’t purchased a product on the Outlet store or are not familiar with what factory refurbished products really means, here’s a quick summary that may entice you.
How Does A Product End Up in the Outlet Store?
Aleratec’s Outlet store contains products that have been returned under our return and refund policy. There are a number of scenarios that can result in returned merchandise. Authorized resellers may be overstocked and need to clear room for other merchandise or will return products due to cosmetic damage such as scratches or dents that occur during shipping. Sometimes a customer will order the wrong product for their needs and simply send it back. In a great majority of cases, the returned product arrives back to us in full-functioning condition. The Outlet store also contains brand new products that work flawlessly, but did not pass our stringent quality standards, whether it’s a scratch on the product’s case or a crooked label.
What Does Certified Factory Refurbished Mean?
Products returned and eventually re-sold are labeled factory refurbished, even if the box was opened but the product was never used. Before any product winds up in the Outlet store, however, it is inspected by our highly skilled technicians who run a series of tests to ensure the product meets our factory specifications. Accessories such as cables, power cords or software are counted and also tested. Documents such as user manuals are also inspected. If the product and the accessories are 100% in working condition and there is no significant physical damage, it is repackaged, re-boxed and heads to the Outlet store where a savvy shopper will pick it up at a bargain price.
