Warranty & Terms

Manufacturer License Agreements
Alliance Test is in the business of procuring, refurbishing, and reselling used technology assets. Some of those assets, generally oscilloscopes, analyzers, and other test products, require licensed software, which works in conjunction with the physical equipment or hardware. Many of the test equipment OEM manufacturers' licensing terms and conditions state that these licenses are non-transferable and that a customer who buys such used equipment must re-license the software to be used in conjunction with the physical equipment.

Alliance Test’s standard terms and conditions dictate that we are in the business of reselling the physical used technology assets, commonly known as hardware, and that we do not resell the software that may be loaded on these systems. Our customers are responsible for complying with OEM manufacturer licensing terms and conditions. Alliance Test does not warrant any software revision levels or load software on any products we sell.

We offer a 30 day warranty. That warranty clock starts on the day equipment ships.
