As an online store, we do everything we can to minimize returns and ensure a smooth buying experience for our customers. We do this by individually testing each unit before shipment to ensure quality as we aim to ensure your machine is right from day one. Due to this strict process, we have very little returns, but if you do end up with an issue we are always here to help.
On each of our product listings you will find the warranty period, typically this is 3 Months for our Refurbished Desktops, Laptop PC’s and Monitors. Refurbished Computer Parts carry 30 days. Where new parts are supplied or used, these carry their manufacturer’s warranty which is typically 1 year, for these parts themselves. You must claim your warranty within this period, beginning from the initial date of purchase.
Please read the following carefully before making a purchase or filling out the warranty request form.
In the very rare case your desktop or laptop PC is “dead on arrival” we will aim to supply you one return courier ticket (freight forward) at no charge if required. This offer is made out of good faith, at our discretion and only where possible, this is not possible for rural addresses or faults where this warranty does not apply.

- Notification to us and any subsequent return of any equipment with fault/s must be made as soon as possible and within the warranty period. Notification to us for claims of “dead on arrival” or damaged items must be made within 24 hours of delivery and returned to us with the same promptness.
- Any damage potentially made by couriers must be claimed through the courier company used and their terms will apply. Any claim for a missing item must be lodged within 14 working days and any claim for a damaged item must be lodged within 7 working days of delivery. Any claim made outside these timeframes will be rejected as these timeframes are provided to us by the courier companies we use.
- Product must be returned in the same condition it was shipped in, and ideally using the same packaging, if this is not available similar quality packaging must be used.
- Where our offer to repair or replace the product is rejected for any reason, any refund provided is subject to a 15% handling and/or restocking fee.

If these are unpaid for a period of 3 months, the return will be considered abandoned and will be disposed of.
- The remedy provided by way of repair, replacement or refund of the product represents the sole and exclusive claim that can be made against hungryPC. The purchase price of the individual product claimed under this warranty represents the maximum liability of hungryPC. This is in lieu of any other warranty, express or implied.
- Whilst we have taken all due care in providing the information on our website, we do not provide any warranty either express or implied including without limitation warranties of title or implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. No warranties are made for accuracy or completeness of materials and descriptions contained on our website or other publication. hungryPC may make changes to this material or to the products and prices described in it at any time, without notice.

Therefore only a hungryPC authorized technician may break warranty seals and/or perform work physically inside of, or on any internal components of a machine supplied by us. Unless previously agreed in writing, any technical or upgrade work carried out by an unauthorized party will void any warranty on our machines.
- COVID-19: During period/s of alert levels, any warranty claim may be significantly delayed due to factors outside of our control, for example, replacement part availability, courier delays, and limitations. We will endeavour to make everything run smoothly as per usual, although any delay outside of our control may mean warranty repair work cannot be undertaken until any lockdown has been lifted, or may take longer than usual. In these instances, we will extend the period of warranty to cover the extra time required to undertake any repairs for these effected customers.
