90 Day Advance Replacement Service

During our Standard 1 Year Warranty period, if there are any problems with your product in the first 90 days, then we'll ship you a replacement item along with a prepaid call tag to ship the original product back.  The original product must be returned within 14 days to avoid being charged for the value of the replacement item.  You must have a valid credit card on file to qualify for this service.  This service does not apply to products covered by Manufacturer Warranties.  Each manufacturer has procedures in place for servicing their respective warranties.
The 90 Day Advance Replacement policy does not apply to wireless equipment, wireless handsets, software, firmware, or provisioning issues either locally or remotely (e.g. hosted PBX solutions).  In the event that software or firmware is loaded onto a product by the customer, the 90 Day Advance Replacement policy is void, and the specific product repair warranty applies.

30 Day Return Policy

For your convenience, we offer returns on both New and Certified Refurbished products.  All return requests must be received within 30 days of the date of invoice.
A 15% restocking fee is charged on all New product returns. There is no restocking fee on Certified Refurbished product returns.  A 4% processing fee applies to all returns over $500 that were originally paid for by credit card.
When a product is returned, the refund includes the total charge amount minus the shipping charge.
All Certified Refurbished IP phones are sealed with a red security tape.  If the red security tape seal is broken, a 15% processing fee is applied.  This fee pertains to settings specific to IP phones that must be defaulted and removed from memory.
Returned products must include all original packaging, documentation, and accessories.  Incomplete or defective returns will be refused. Software consultation with technical assistance fees are not eligible for refund.  For any questions or to request a return authorization, please call 800-929-8061. We will be happy to assist you.

Can I cancel my order?

Orders can be cancelled prior to the shipment of the product from our warehouse.  Once an order has shipped, it cannot be cancelled and a return materials authorization (RMA) must be requested.  A 4% processing fee applies to any cancelled order over $500 that has been paid for by credit card.

Repair Service

Our in-house repair department employs 12 full-time technicians with over 30 years of experience.  We can repair and remanufacture virtually every product we carry and provide flat-rate repair pricing.
Items that have no problem found or are not repairable are subject to a diagnostic fee that is equal to 20% of the flat-rate repair fee.  For items that are not repairable, the fee is waived if Metroline offers a comparable replacement product that is purchased by the customer.

We provide affordable flat rate FedEx Ground shipping on every online order.  FedEx Ground shipping is just $9.95 for one item plus $0.95 per additional item.  The offer is valid in the contiguous United States.
