4. Delivery

We make every effort in building, testing and dispatching the PCs within 2-3 weeks (excluding public holidays) of the order confirmation however in some very rare instances it may take longer due to unavailability of the components required by the customer or when a problem is detected during the testing phase of the PCs. After dispatch it generally takes around 1-3 days for the delivery at shipping address within Australia.

The products we ship out are properly packaged to avoid any damages during transit. In some cases, extra packaging material is put inside the assembled PCs that must be removed by the customers by opening the case before the PC is plugged in to the mains. In such cases, the customers are notified per E-Mail. These extra safety measures are to avoid hassles for both the customers and us.

Delivery periods given by Mountain Custom Computers are estimates only. We do not take responsibility in case of delays and associated damages, due to events beyond our reasonable control including but not limited to acts of God, public enmity, acts of government and related bodies, fire, floods, civil disobedience, strikes, lockouts, and freight embargoes.

Mountain Custom Computers provides available shipping options upon checkout. these options are given to you (the customer) to elect to have your order dispatched via a courier or postal service. These couriers and postal services are 3rd party companies. The nature of items sold on our store means we cannot ship to P.O boxes. Items are shipped and delivered during business hours, Monday to Friday and as our couriers and delivery partners are separate entities Mountain Custom Computers cannot guarantee specific delivery times. Where parcel protection and insurance options are available but not selected by the customer upon checkout, Mountain Custom Computers is not liable for items damaged in transit. Where insurance or parcel protection options are offered they are done so by the third-party courier and Mountain Custom Computers will assist you in resolving any claims to the best of its ability.

6. Warranty

All goods sold in Australia come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law. Purchases made from Mountain Custom Computers are no exception and customers are entitled to repair or replacements in the event of a major failure, if a suitable replacement is not available customers are entitled to a refund.

Mountain Custom Computers’ policy on providing these guarantees is as followed:

I

If any item is clearly faulty, not as advertised or dangerous, it can be returned or exchanged within 7 days of purchase. However, the length and conditions of this warranty are set by the item distributors and manufacturers, not the retailer. As the retailer Mountain Custom Computers will accept returns and process all warranties for all items that do not display signs of physical damage, that are within the warranty period and are accompanied by a tax invoice. Mountain Custom Computers does not process the warranty past the point of returning it to the distributor or manufacturer. Any decisions to replace, repair or reject the warranty claim are solely that of the distributor or supplier and not that of Mountain Custom Computers. Similarly, the length of time it takes to complete a warranty claim also rests with the supplier or distributor in question and Mountain Custom Computers is not liable for damages or costs involved with the delay.

II

Standard RTB (Return to Base) Warranty: all warranty claims pertaining to Mountain Custom Computers will be handled on a per component, return to base basis. Mountain Custom Computers staff members will provide troubleshooting assistance in an effort to resolve the issue regardless of the nature of the fault where possible and within reason however if the fault requires the item to be replaced or repaired the customer is required to return it to the point of purchase (or place of origin if item was originally shipped via courier on initial order).

All valid warranty claims will receive free return shipping to the customer anywhere in Australia upon repair or replacement of the item in question by the distributor or manufacturer processing the claim. THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES FOR SOFTWARE.
