Information for customers of Federal Express Same Day Service.
Thank you for your patronage. Velocity Tech Solutions will do its very best to get your part or server to you via Federal Express Same Day Service.
Be aware that once your item has left our facility we are unable to impact the timeliness of your shipment, as control of the package has moved to our shipper, Federal Express.
Also, be aware that Federal Express does not make refunds for the following conditions, so we are unable to make refunds to you for the types of late shipping failures listed below:
- Weather related failures.
- Mechanical problems.
- Commercial connecting flight failures.
- Closed freight desks at airports.
- Incorrect addresses.
- Theft of stolen packages, after delivery.
While Federal Express’ Same Day Shipping service has a high on-time delivery success rate, it is not 100%. Additionally, if you choose a connecting flight (non-direct flight) option, the on-time delivery success rate falls significantly.
Please affix your signature and date below to verify you have understood these limitations of the Federal Express Same Day Service option and also our inability to impact the timeliness of the shipment once it is to the carrier, or our ability to grant shipping refunds for the above service failures.
Furthermore, we will NOT re-ship the product via same day on our account for ANY reason.

Please contact your Velocity Tech Solutions representative for more details.
Administration of Limited Warranty Policy (USA)
An RMA number must be granted by customer service prior to shipment back to Velocity Tech Solutions. The customer service representatives will verify the serial number of the item in which warranty has been claimed. If this serial number does not match the serial number of the item in question, no warranty will be granted.
In cases where warranty is claimed on units which consist of more than one assembly, (such as servers, for instance), the customer service representative will verify the serial number of the server and the serial numbers of any components for which warranty is claimed. Specifically, if a hard drive or other component is claimed under warranty, the serial number of the hard drive must match the serial number of the hard drive in the original shipment. Under no circumstances will Velocity Tech Solutions warranty components such as hard drives, power supplies, or any other components that were not part of the original shipment.
Customer is responsible for shipment of the defective unit back to Velocity Tech Solutions. When the RMA component is received, the technical staff will inspect the item for physical damage or other non-qualifying circumstances. (See Limited Warranty Terms Above.) If the item qualifies for warranty coverage, the item will then be replaced with either the exact part number or an equivalent component. Velocity Tech Solutions will ship the replacement via Federal Express Ground shipment.
Customer is responsible for shipping charges if they require faster shipment.
Velocity Tech Solutions will ship a replacement item in advance* of the returning failed item. If, upon receipt of the failed item, it is determined the item serial number does not match the serial number of the item originally sold, customer will be billed for the replacement item.
If the returning failed item does not arrive within 30 days of the grant of an RMA number, customer will be billed for the replacement item.
Extended Limited Warranty Coverage
Velocity Tech Solutions offers extended limited warranty coverage on server equipment in certain cases.
All of the Limited Warranty Policy and Administration of Limited Warranty Policy terms apply to units with Extended Limited Warranty Coverage.
To reiterate key specifics of the policies above:
Warranty will not be allowed on servers and components that have not been verified to have been included in the original shipment. We will not warranty hard drives and other items from other sources that have been added to our servers by the customer. We will not provide technical support for non-original items that have been installed by the customer in our servers.
Velocity Tech Solutions will, at its discretion, and as a courtesy to our customers, ship advance exchanges of parts claimed under warranty. If the part claimed under warranty is determined not to be originally from Velocity Tech Solutions, or does not arrive to our facility within 30 days, customer will be billed for any advance exchanges.
Velocity Tech Solutions will ship replacement parts via Ground shipping. As a courtesy to our customers, Velocity Tech Solutions will sometimes ship advance exchanges faster than ground shipment in emergency cases.
