Laptops are our trusted companions, and in today’s world, they enable us to get our work done in the most efficient manner. A significant portion of the global workforce currently work remotely; whether you are working from home as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, or you are a part of a global virtual team, you rely on your laptop to accomplish specific tasks. Thus, any malfunctions or breakdowns would throw a wrench into your plans, leaving you stranded with very few options. In case the laptop is relatively new (purchased less than a year ago), you can fall back on the brand warranty to get the laptop repaired. Brands like HP, Dell, Lenovo and Apple provide standard limited warranties with their laptops that take care of any damage to the device, as a result of manufacturing defects. To perform a laptop warranty check, you first have to locate the serial number, and then visit the manufacturer’s website. Once you navigate to the warranty status page on your web browser, you can enter the serial number and click ‘submit’ to get the required information about your laptop’s warranty.
Whether the laptop is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, or it is due to expire soon, it would be a wise choice to opt for an extended warranty. The laptop’s extended warranty not only protects your device for an additional couple of years, but it also reduces the risk of you incurring expenses due to unexpected issues with your laptop. By paying a certain amount, you can purchase extended warranties for your laptop, such as a HP laptop warranty extension, Lenovo warranty extension or MacBook warranty extension. All you have to do is visit the manufacturer’s website, or contact the brand’s customer support to opt for an extended warranty. Alternatively, you can use a third-party service that offers extended warranties for laptops.
The standard limited warranties provided by laptop brands ensure that your laptop remains operational, and the brand takes care of any manufacturing defects that might render your device unusable. The limited warranty takes care of the following issues and damages.
However, the usual standard warranty does not cover the following costs and repairs.
By opting for an extended warranty for your laptop, you can protect your device from manufacturing defects even after the expiration of your manufacturer’s warranty. Some of the features and benefits of an extended warranty include:
Extended warranty for an additional 2-3 years after the expiration of manufacturer’s warranty.
The laptop is repaired without you having to pay any cash up front.
Depreciation fee will not be deducted if the device can be repaired at a cost that is less than the replacement cost.
Some brands also offer free pick-up and drop service, where the device is picked up from your home, and is later delivered to your doorstep.
Through extended warranty, you can protect your laptop from manufacturing defects well beyond the original warranty period. By opting for this extended warranty, you can remain worry-free about the performance of your laptop even after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A few benefits of the extended warranty include:
You can purchase extended warranty within 6 months of buying your laptop. To avail extended warranty for your device, all you have to do is call the CPP team on the toll-free number, 1860-258-3030 between 11 A.M. and 9 P.M. Alternatively, you can give a missed call to 09289208888 and submit the original invoice. The sum insured by the policy is the amount listed on the invoice. Once you sign up, you can enjoy cashless service at authorised repair centres across the country, and also benefit from doorstep services.
