Why Buy from an Authorized Distributor?
Overstock Lab Equipment is proud to be a factory Authorized Distributor for many scientific brands that we carry, including: Scilogex, Edwards, Benchmark, Crest Ultrasonics, and Scientific Industries to name a few. When you buy from an Authorized Distributor you can be certain that your purchase will be protected by the manufacturer’s warranty. This is important because manufacturer’s warranties are only valid for purchases from authorized dealers and in order to qualify you must be able to provide documentation that cannot be offered by unauthorized resellers. Some unauthorized resellers sell products without serial numbers or with altered serial numbers. This voids the warranty and manufacturers are unable to offer assistance.
When you buy from Overstock Lab Equipment you are guaranteed to receive only factory fresh merchandise, unlike with unauthorized third- party resellers. The longer electronic products are stored away on the shelf, their performance, calibration, battery life, etc. can be affected, regardless of use. Only authorized distributors are able to supply factory-fresh, guaranteed new products. Some unauthorized resellers sell products that can have different or incompatible voltages, accessories, or instruction manuals. Unauthorized dealers may also distribute "grey goods" or "parallel import" versions of the products. These are similar versions that were not intended for distribution in the USA. Certain resellers will even sell refurbished products under the pretense that this is a new item. Be aware of these potential pitfalls and buy from an authorized dealer.
