An Apricorn Return Material Authorization (RMA) is required to return a product covered under Apricorn’s exchange & refund policy or warranty (covered product). After you submit for an RMA, you will need to receive Apricorn’s approval before you can send your covered product back to Apricorn. Once Apricorn receives and repairs/replaces your covered product, a repaired or replacement product can be sent to you.
Submitting an RMA
Please use the following steps to submit a covered product for RMA:
- Complete the online form to the right.
- If we approve your request, you may receive an RMA number and instructions on how to send your covered product in.
- You must send your covered product in before we can repair or replace it.
VOID Warranty / VOID Exchange & Refund Policy
Your Apricorn product must be free of physical damage or modification. Apricorn’s exchange & refund policy and warranty are not applicable to products received with physical damage or modification (e.g., bent CPU socket pins, any damage to the printed circuit board (PCB), water damage, missing the original hard drive, or missing the serial number sticker, etc.), nor to products received in any type of shipping envelope or soft packaging material. We reserve the right to return such products and charge handling and shipping costs.
Once Apricorn receives your RMA request, the RMA will be reviewed by us. In order to approve your RMA, Apricorn will need a copy of proof of purchase (e.g., sales receipt of the product).
- You are free to use the shipping method and courier of your choice.
- Apricorn recommends you obtain delivery confirmation and a tracking number for your shipment so that shipment can be traced.
