Q. How do you deliver?
A. We will deliver with any of the major delivery companies (FedEx, UPS, DHL). We will deliver on either our freight account or yours, whichever is most convenient for you.
Q. Do you sell monitors through your website?
A. No we do not. The reason is that we would like to speak with each customer, to make sure their needs are being met, and that we have all of the required information to sell a product accurately. An incorrect order is damaging to everyone. Many of our products do have links to an online retailer, however.
Q. What forms of payment do you accept?
A. We accept most major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard), as well as PayPal and wire transfers.
Q. Are there any hidden fees or charges?
A. Monitech will never charge you more than we have quoted you. You may incur extra charges from your bank, credit card company, or have to pay a tax (depending on your Country / State / Province).
Q. How quickly will my monitor arrive?
A. That depends. If the display is fairly common and we have it per-assembled, we can ship the same day. If it is an uncommon one, we will have to assemble it. Depending on the complexity of the assembly, this could take from a few hours to a few days. We do not charge more depending on the assembly time. As far as freight goes, that is up to you. If you want it sent via next day air, that is how we will send it!
Q. How hard is it to install one of your products?
A. It will vary depending on the specific product, but generally, someone with no mechanical or electrical skills, whom is installing a display for the first time can have it done in under one hour.
Q. What is the MTBF (mean time between failure) on one of your displays?
A. On average, they will last for upwards of 50 000 hours. This means if you were running it for 8 hours per day, it would last over 17 years!
Q. Will I have to reprogram my machine?
A. No! The display is separate from the computer in your machine. No reprogramming will be necessary.
