Product Grading (Condition)
What is graded stock?
Our products are not considered ‘Brand New’ products, they are considered Graded products. A product can become classed as Graded in several ways. Most big guys out there, John Lewis, Tesco, Curry’s and so on all offer 30-day return policies. This can be anything from an unwanted gift, a change of mind from the customer or even the wrong colour of an item. Once the product has been opened from its original packaging, the sellers are no longer able to resell the item as brand new. This is where we come in.
Whilst the products are Graded, essentially its often a brand-new item in fantastic condition, simply returned as unwanted and picked up by ourselves for resale. This means that we can bring you a great product at a great price, saving you a huge amount of money in the process! With almost 30 years of experience dealing in Graded products, we’re confident you will be delighted. For that reason, we offer you a 14 day no quibble returns policy and Free Five Years Guarantee on all items purchased from us. All products are technically tested, processed, repackaged and offered for sale. Before sale, all items undergo a comprehensive quality control process by our engineers. In most cases the item will be supplied with its original packaging. If the original packaging is not supplied, we will supply other secure packaging to keep the item well protected in transit. All items sold at DC Digital TV carry either a free 5 year or 12 months ‘return to base’ warranty provided by ourselves (unless otherwise stated). Our guarantee on all our products demonstrates our confidence in each product we sell. This really is an amazing way to save hundreds off “Brand New” prices without sacrificing any of the quality or performance!

We’re sorry that adverse weather conditions may or could affect our delivery service
We cannot stress enough how important it is to check your order on delivery.
Upon delivery, we ask you to give your product(s) a cosmetic/condition check as any damage needs to be reported in the presence of the driver. This does not take more than 5 minutes to pop open the box and do. As LED screens are delicate and made of glass we recommend you check the screen for cracks. Once a signature has been recorded by our delivery driver and any damage stated afterwards is not covered by insurance. After we receive a signature the agreement is that the goods have been left in your care. If you refuse the goods they will be returned to our depot.
Our warranty does not cover screen damage on TVs such as developing pixel lines, patches, block lines back light bleed or cracks including impact damage. This does not affect your statutory rights.
All original packaging should be kept for your product as this is required for returning the item to us. It is your responsibility to package the item in a safe way, suitable for courier transport.
We advise you to check the products as soon as they are delivered so that any problems can be raised with the delivery drivers immediately. They carry spare remote controls and power cables so if by chance they are missing the delivery driver can assist you at that time.
