  • Products & pricing

    At King of Servers we carry out daily price checks to maintain an up to date view on our pricing in relation to our online competitors. As well as monitoring, our website reacts to fluctuating prices automatically to ensure our products are always priced as keenly as possible across our entire catalogue.

    Since it’s impossible to keep tabs on everyone, we offer a price match challenge. If you find a better price elsewhere, we'll do our very best to match it.

  • What do your stock conditions mean?

    As well as new products, we also sell open box, refurbished & HP Renew products. All of our products are backed by a warranty.

    Open box products are brand new, unused items for which the outer packaging has either been opened or damaged. Open box products are covered by the full manufacturer warranty.

    Products we classify as refurbished have been checked and tested to ensure they are fit for sale and come from a variety of sources.

    Refurbished products might include:

    • Brand new products that we can’t sell as ‘new’ because the packaging has been been lost or replaced.
    • Products returned to us that have been tested and deemed fit for resale.
    • Hardware components our engineers have retrieved from system builds (e.g. server parts). 

    HP Renew products have been remanufactured to the same standard as new HP products and are backed by the original HP warranty. In other words, there is no difference between the warranty offered for a new HP product and the equivalent HP Renew product.

  • Is your stock grey or sourced outside of approved channels?

    Categorically no! All our  stock is ethically sourced within the EU and backed by warranty. Hewlett Packard products sold as new are retail sealed units covered by the full manufacturer warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which you can validate online to confirm warranty cover ahead of purchase.

  • How are your prices so low?

    At King of Servers we conduct regular price checks to maintain an up to date view on our pricing in relation to our online competitors. We aim to ensure our products are always priced as keenly as possible across our entire catalogue.

    Since it’s impossible to keep tabs on everyone, we offer a Price Match Challenge . If you find a better price elsewhere, we'll do our very best to match it.

    We're not as big as some of our competitors so we have to try harder to win your business and this means offering better prices and better service levels. We’re also fortunate to have smaller overheads than some of our larger competitors and this, coupled with our buying power allows us to secure volume related discounts from our established global network of suppliers. These savings are ultimately reflected in the prices of our products.

    Cheaper doesn't always mean better though, read our blog and watch out for the common pitfalls 

Out of stock

:(

Well, this is disappointing - this product has sold out. Fear not though, more may be on order or we may be able to source it for you.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.
