Warranty Policy:

Product warranty policies are set by the manufacturer of each product. The warranty duration varies by manufacturer. Metropolitan Sales will honor all manufacturer’s warranties on products sold by Metropolitan Sales. Warranties do not apply to products that have been subjected to misuse, mistreatment or accidental damage.

DOA Policy:

Dead on Arrival (DOA) polices vary by manufacturer. In most cases, if we are notified within 30 days of the invoice date, an RMA number will be issued and a new replacement product will be sent under the customer’s standard credit terms. When shipping a DOA product back to Metropolitan Sales, product must be double boxed. The product's box must be unmarked and undamaged. This includes writing, stamps and shipping labels. Customer is responsible for all freight charges. If, upon inspection, no problem is found or the product has been tampered with, the unit will be returned to the customer at the customer’s expense and the customer will be responsible for paying for the replacement and all product inspection charges. After 30 days of the invoice date, the manufacturer warranty policies apply. Custom products are not eligible for return.

Non-DOA Policy:

  • NO open box returns for non-DOA products. Product box must be clean and undamaged, with no marks of any kind. This includes writing, stamps, or shipping labels, i.e., written RMA numbers. All products must be double boxed.
  • Original manufacturer's packaging, both inside and outside must be used. Returns must be complete with all manuals, cables, warranty cards, static bags, etc., just as the customer received them.
  • Customers have 30 days from date of invoice to request a non-DOA return. The RMA number issued is valid for 30 days from issue date.
  • A restocking fee may apply on returns resulting from customer error.
  • Non-DOA configured product may not be returned.
  • Customer is responsible for freight costs when returning product.

  • Some manufacturers, request resellers to contact them directly regarding warranty and repair policies. Contact Metropolitan Sales for list of specific manufacturers.

RMA Shipping Guidelines:

When returning your RMA product, please follow these guidelines:

  • Ship the product back using the original manufacturer’s packaging, including the box and any other additional shipping material used for packing purpose
  • Make sure the product is unmarred by any scratches or marks and ship complete with manuals, ribbons, paper, cables, warranty cards, static bags, etc
