While the average product warranty lasts for only one year, it’s usually after that when problems occur. So when purchasing your new equipment and peripherals, consider extending the life of your systems and avoid high cost of repair or replacement with one of PCMG’s Service plans. Regardless of the computer peripheral brand you purchase, we can cover it.
PCMG can assist you with:
Manufacturer warranty claims
Manufacturer extended warranties
Tracking of service contracts
3rd party extended warranties
Product installation services

Manufacturer Warranty Claims
At PCMG, we realize that getting timely, responsive technical help for the products you purchase is very important to you. If our Technical Support Center cannot help with your problem or concern, please contact the manufacturer directly. We urge you to always retain the manufacturer contact information that comes with each product. If the product does not come with a manual or a specific technical support contact, the manufacturer’s name and address will be printed on the packaging.
Open Box Products
Our open-box items have active manufacturer warranties. However, as some items have been previously owned, specific manufacturer warranty information is unavailable for open-box products. Please see our selection of extended warranties.
