Whenever an item is returned to the manufacturer for any reason and the original box has been opened, the item (whether it’s a television, a computer, a camera, or some other technical device) must be reconditioned to the manufacturer’s original quality standards. Any non-functioning parts are replaced with functioning components and the item is repackaged.
Reasons Item may have been returned.
Canceled orders: This is merchandise in perfectly good shape. Say a customer makes a special order and then changes his or her mind, or the order is somehow mucked up (“I ordered a PC. You sent me a Mac!”).
Store returns: Customer buys something in a store, takes it home, and opens it, only to decide that he doesn’t really want it. By law, as soon as the box is opened, a piece of merchandise can never be sold as new again, even if the merchandise was never used.
Overstocks: When a manufacturer comes out with a new model, they may take back the older models from retailers in an effort to encourage them to stock more of the newer, faster, cooler model.
Off Lease: When a manufacturer comes out with a new model, they may take back the older models from retailers in an effort to encourage them to stock more of the newer, faster, cooler model.
