Most used test equipment ships within 1-5 business days from when the order is taken. We also have many items that are not listed on this website.

What kind of warranty will I receive?
TestEquity's reconditioned test equipment is warranted for a period of one year unless otherwise stated. Extended warranties may be purchased for most reconditioned equipment. Ask your Account Executive for details. Purchases of reconditioned test equipment are warranted to be in good working order for the period covered. This warranty is limited to repair or replacement of parts or equipment in the determination of TestEquity.
Purchases of new equipment are exclusively covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
TestEquity environmental chambers are warranted for three years for the replacement of parts and one year for the cost of repair labor. On-site labor warranty for TestEquity environmental chambers applies to the United States and Canada only.
This is a general statement of warranty policy and is not complete. For a complete statement, including further limitations, contact TestEquity.
Can I rely on used test equipment?
TestEquity sells the highest grade of expertly reconditioned used test equipment. Technicians thoroughly repair, test and calibrate the equipment with NIST traceability. The equipment is calibrated to the original manufacturer's specifications as well as ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 and ISO 17025 quality standards. Our lab is A2LA Accredited. The equipment is painted and any damaged knobs or other external parts are replaced to make the equipment look as close to new as possible. The manuals and the complete list of accessories are included with the unit. The end result is equipment that looks and functions like new at a fraction of the cost. All of this is backed up by our one-year reconditioned equipment warranty.
How is my order shipped?
All prices are FOB Moorpark, California. We offer FedEx Ground anywhere within the 48 continental United States, and air for HI, AK, and Canada. You may request a quote for international shipping. All fragile and high value products are packed using foam-in-place equipment, eliminating the possibility of shipping damage. Large items, such as big power supplies, are boxed and/or put on a pallet and shipped via truck. Most environmental chambers must be shipped via air-ride van.
What if I need to return equipment?
To ensure prompt handling, all returns must be authorized except for rental returns. Please call 800-950-3457 for a return merchandise authorization (RMA) number. Equipment ordered incorrectly may be subject to a 20% restocking charge. Some special order items may be non-returnable. Please mark the RMA number on the packing label, not the box, so that we can properly note the return in your account.
New equipment returned for credit must be in unused condition, with all original packing material and accessories. New equipment being returned under warranty must be sent directly to the manufacturer if more than 30 days have passed since the equipment was originally shipped to you.
Rental equipment should be returned in its original packaging in order to avoid shipping damage. You will be responsible for shipping damage due to inadequate packaging. REPLACEMENT COST PLUS $100 WILL BE CHARGED FOR ANY ACCESORY NOT RETURNED WITH THE EQUIPMENT. Labor incurred to repair units damaged due to customer negligence will be billed at the current laboratory billing rate of $190.00 per hour.
Products classified with the Non Cancellable / Non Returnable designation online or the No Cancel - No Return note, on quote and order acknowledgments, cannot be cancelled once ordered nor returned once shipped.
How will I be billed for rental equipment?
Your monthly rental amount will be billed in advance each month. There is a one-month minimum rental period for all equipment. When you are done renting the equipment, follow the directions under What if I need to return equipment? in the preceding paragraph or contact us for a buyout price as specified in the following paragraph. Billings are based on 30-day months. We will issue a credit for any days remaining between the date we receive the rental equipment and the end of your last billing period. For example, if your equipment was originally shipped to you on January 10th and we received the equipment back from rent on April 20th, you would be entitled to a credit for 20 days; the period April 20th through May 9th of the last billing. Some of our competitors rent in two-week increments instead of prorating your rental daily as we do!
How do I buyout equipment that I'm renting from TestEquity?
Contact your Account Executive at 800-950-3457. If you're equipment qualifies for buyout (and most do), the Account Executive will quote you a buyout price which is the regular selling price less a percentage of past billings, less any credit remaining in your current month's billing.
