What is my express warranty after my Surface is replaced?
We provide a post-service express warranty for devices that have been serviced or replaced by our service centre. The length of the express warranty depends on whether the service was in-warranty or out-of-warranty:
- In-warranty service: If your Surface was serviced or replaced within the original express warranty period, you receive either the balance of your original express warranty or 90 days, whichever is longer.
- Out-of-warranty service: If your Surface was serviced out of the original express warranty period, your replacement or serviced device will have a 90-day express warranty.
Can I get service if I don’t have warranty coverage?
If the problem with your Surface is not covered by your express warranty or your rights under the Australian Consumer Law, your Surface may be eligible for out-of-warranty service for a fee. Please note, out-of-warranty services for your device may no longer be available in your region. To learn more, contact us.
