Hours of Operation
RDS offices are open M-F 8:00AM - 5:00PM Pacific Standard Time.
However online ordering is available 24 hours a day.
RDS ships via UPS from Burbank, CA. Packages shipped via UPS Ground to the Great Los Angeles Area typically arrive in 1 business day, however UPS has up to 5 business days to deliver Ground packages. Most items are stocked locally, therefore they are available for same-day pickup in-store.
Out of Stock Policy
- The most important thing to keep in mind when ordering is that our stock balances fluctuate throughout the day with sales demand and stock that we receive from the manufacturers. Items are constantly being sold and our stock is constantly being replenished. If the item is identified as "Out of Stock", we can special order the item for you and ship it as soon as we get it. Most items ship same day.
- Just because the item you ordered is NOT identified as out-of-stock does not necessarily mean that it will be in-stock at the moment you order it. We will notify you if the item you ordered is out-of-stock. We first try to reply via email and give you 3 days to reply. If we have not heard from you we will then try to call you at the numbers you provide with your order. Be sure to give us your current email address and phone number.
- Some items are listed for sale on our web site that have not been released from the manufacturer yet. We place these items on the web site so that consumers may pre-order the items. Preorders are reserved with payment up front on a first come, first served basis. You may also request to be placed on a notify list and we will let you know when products are in-stock and available for delivery. Be advised that prepaid orders always get priority for delivery.
- Many out-of-stock items are excellent products and are available for purchase, but we do not always stock these items in inventory. We will be happy to special order these items for you in a timely fashion. Again, most items ship on the same day the product is ordered.
We accept purchase orders from clients such as non-profit institutions (hospitals, universities, museums, governmental agencies, etc.), or to private sector customers placing orders of $1K or more.
We offer a 30 day money back guarantee on almost every product we offer. Please call customer service at (818) 848-4808, in advance to obtain an RMA number (Return Merchandise Authorization) within 30 days of purchase date.
Return merchandise with RMA number written on the outside of the package to:
(print RMA number Here)
1808 W Olive Ave
Burbank, CA 91506
Upon approval, refunds will be made within 15 business days. Refunds will be issued according to the original payment method.
A 15% restocking fee will be applied to returns of non-defective product.
NOTE: Returns sent with no RMA number, missing, damaged, or incorrect product will be refused. RMA numbers will not be issued for returns with opened non-defective product.
Customer assumes all costs in shipping to us, and we assume the cost in shipping back to the customer. All replacement/repaired products are shipped FedEx Ground unless a rush is requested. The cost of such a shipping upgrade is to be paid by the customer prior to shipment.
We suggest you contact our tech support team first by posting a question in our Help Desk to determine whether the item is indeed defective before shipping. Then make an online return merchandise authorization (RMA) request. See Return Policy for more details. No phone call or email is necessary!
90-Day Warranty Manufacturer Warranty
All products (unless specifically stated otherwise), carry an implied, industry-standard 90-Day warranty against defects due to manufacturing or failure. Warranty does not include any use of the product that does not fall into the designed use of the product as intended by the manufacturer.
Manufacturers sometimes offer additional warranty for the following products: Glyph drives and Avastor drives. Customers should contact the manufacturer after warranty expires.
Order Cancellation Policy
Please submit any cancellation via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call on our business phone at (818) 848-4808.
Email cancellations must contain the following: First name, last name, order number, and email address. This information must be identical to the information originally submitted on your order. Please provide contact information so that we may contact you if we have questions in regards to canceling your order.
Every effort will be made to accommodate the cancellation of your order, providing your order has not been charged and/or shipped out. In the event that a cancellation was submitted (via email or phone), and your order was shipped out after, we will gladly refund the complete balance charged including shipping. However, if the cancellation was documented as received after the order was shipped, we will refund the merchandise total less shipping.Copyright
