It is true, I had a faulty and very hot motherboard and it took 600 messages to the Dell-cares team which is a total waste of space and your and their time.
When they agree to replace a device irrespective of whether it’s a new fault or old fault they only want to give you your remaining warranty life span but my unit was classed as a DOA.
Less than 3 hours later after submitting a UK RESOLVER CASE complaint, Dell called me and for the 500th time told me directly they were sorry again and the 12-month warranty would now be honored by dell again.
This is what they said – please note exactly their wording as it’s pie-in-the-sky consumer crap.
Dear Mr. H******,
This is with regards to our telephonic conversation.
My name is Marshal Bayliss and I am a part of the Advanced resolutions service team. We represent Dell corporate office for UK / Ireland and I am contacting you with reference to your complaint that has been brought to our executives notice. We are the single point of contact towards such concerns and I am engaged on this particular case to assist you further.
We regret any inconvenience caused in your recent experience with Dell services and will ensure that necessary actions are taken to curb such situations in future. Please be assured that we will certainly stand by our products and offer assistance in alignment with the warranty entitlement on your system.
Having said that, we understand that you have requested for the warranty contract on the new replacement unit to commence from the date of delivery. Please be advised that the service provided so far was in alignment with the original warranty contract that had begun in August 2022 and the remainder warranty period is automatically transferred over to the new replacement.
However, given the history of the case and understanding your request, we have agreed to provide a new 1year warranty contract starting from the date of replacement system being delivered, as a onetime Good will gesture. The new warranty start date is 7th of January 2023 and will expire on the 7th of January 2024. The warranty extension is a documented contract and will be honored by all the support teams in Dell.
Kindly contact technical support or respond to this email if you have any further queries and necessary arrangements will be made for resolution when required.
We regret the difficulties you have experienced in this case and appreciate the co-operation you have extended in allowing Dell to resolve this matter.
The grammar is rather shocking but this is my reply below for the sake of full transparency.
Thank you for your quick response Marchal, it’s not a goodwill gesture in the UK its actual consumer law when the goods are in fact classed as DOA as it was reported within the first 30 days of ownership.
