FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Where did the units come from?
They have been in service in major retailers throughout the United States and have been removed due to a variety of reasons including pre-determined amortization schedules, remodeling or changes in the retailer’s product mix
What reconditioning do you do?
Our intake process evaluates every unit to identify any issues that must be addressed to take it back to the factory specification. Each component is tested as is the overall performance. Trained technicians address every issue and then the unit is professionally cleaned inside and out and the unit’s performance is retested. Units who pass the test are then made available for sale.
What happens if the unit doesn’t work when it arrives?
If a unit arrives in less than working condition, we will replace it at our expense so please call us immediately if there is any issue. You can return any non-performing item in the first 30 days for a full refund but shipping will be your responsibility.
