Ingram Micro recommends that product returned by post should be sent by registered or certified mail. Ingram Micro accepts no responsibility for loss or damage occurring in transit.

Customer must obtain a valid RA number(s) authorised by Ingram Micro RA team for all returned product(s). If the RA number can not be identified, or if the Product does not match the RA details provided by the Customer in terms of either quantity, Ingram Micro product code or product serial number, Ingram Micro may reject the returned product at the Ingram Micro RA dock and return it to the Customer at the Customer's expense.

For all returned product(s), customer must maintain a copy of the proof of delivery or consignment information to confirm delivery in case of future queries.

Ingram Micro will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure such products are clearly advertised and promoted as being sold only on a No Returns Basis.

  8. If Ingram Micro approves an RA for return under warranty, the Customer is responsible for freight to the Sydney Distribution Centre. Ingram Micro will be responsible for return freight of the product as soon as it has been exchanged, for replacement or repair returns only.
