EVALUATION - TESTED PRODUCT
One of the things we love about this
business is being able to evaluate potential products for suitability, value for money and
quality before listing on our website. This is a part of our investment comittment to
ensuring we can provide useful product to our customers but just like driving away in a
new car purchased from the dealer, the "new" value drops significantly and we
understand this. So from time to time we offer items that we have thoroughly tested and
sell them off below at cost or below. Most items have been used only once or twice but
come with our full 1-year warranty. In very few instances, should an item not meet our
rigorous standards and we don't list it among our common range, we will say so inthe
review of the item under our seconds page. However, we understand that for a certain price
and application (fitness for purpose) it may be useful to others hence why we may list it.
FULLY CHECKED FACTORY SECOND
Typically, factory second items may have
been removed from original packaging for demonstration purposes, ex-shop floor stock or
photo shoots. Some items may be slightly soiled or may have superficial scratches to
finishes that do not affect correct operation and useability.
Factory seconds are provided to our
customers at substantially reduced prices.
They are fully checked for fitness and function and come with a full one-year
manufacturers warranty. Factory second items can save you big bucks if you're on a tight
budget!!! Unlike some unscrupulous retail dealers, we do not try and flog these items off
as "new" and will provide an honest appraisal of any defects.
We offer these items at substantial
discounts and in most case one would not even know the item was not new.
New factory seconds become available all
the time so please contact us with your wish list and we'll see what we can do.
Second Hand Stock
Astro Shop will from time to time offer
traded in used equipment in the factory seconds page and these will be noted as such in
the description. These items are covered by 3 months warranty.
