What is unboxed?
Unboxed means a product that has already been opened up!
How is unboxed different from refurbished?
Unboxed are the products which were opened and returned to the company unused and untouch. They are not used or sold. They are neither damaged nor defective and never ever repaired. The reason of return could be anything except a damage/defect. These devices come with original box, accessories and manufacturer warranty. Where as a refurbished product is something that has been previously used, may be damaged and re-assembled from different parts derived from similar products to get it in a position that it still works as per norms. Refurbished products are called by many names like renewed, but clearly they were used by the customers, returned due to defect/damage and repaired by the company to work as a new product and are of-course cheaper alternatives.
Are all unboxed items sold by different websites online the same?
No. They are not. Every website has their own set of rules and ethics. Every unboxed available online cannot be compared with ours simply on the basis of price. A lot of things matter which have to be taken into consideration as to why the product was unboxed. That cannot be same for everyone. 90% of the websites online sell customer used second hand items and refurbished products branded under the title of unboxed which is not right. There are very few honest companies out there which keep you completely informed about your purchase. One such name is South Port.
How is South Port unboxed category unique?
South Port's unboxed category of items are strictly 100% new and untouch units. There are very limited units only and these are from our warehouse only. We do not source anything from secondary market and strictly do not sell anything used. It is against our policy. We are an official partner of Samsung and are in business of selling new products only. Second hand selling is not our business.
What about customer satisfaction?
We have tight quality check standards in place for all unboxed items and our engineers make sure the product is perfect for sale. We do not send any unboxed item to any customer without proper information and purchase satisfaction. Our Unboxed is not refurbished.
Why are they been unboxed?
Our unboxed products are never-been-used items whose box seal was opened or broken. These items have never been sold and they never left our facility. It may have been opened up for any of the following reasons
- Internal quality testing
- Auditing of stocks health.
- Fragile seal spoiled during shipping/transit
- Seal break during stock handling
- Received in same condition from the company
- Web video reviewing
- Internal test & training purposes of staff
- In-store or online demonstration to corporates but never manhandled or displayed.
- Unsold products of the customers who changed their mind immediately on their purchase when strictly the item doesn't leaves our store
- Someone wanted to upgrade to a different model instantly at the time of purchase just after opening the product.
- Wrong product opened by mistake by a sales personnel at our store.
Whatever the case may be, we do make a clear mention before selling it to you.
Do they work well?
All these types of products work just like brand-new. The only difference remains is that the sealed box was opened by someone else except you and nothing else changes. We maintain the highest levels of quality check standards in the industry today and you can rely on our unboxed items eyes closed.
What about the warranty?
The warranty remains same, you have to claim warranty as usual from the service centers only. Everything remains same and all the processes of getting the service also remains same just like buying a new product from a Samsung store.
What is the warranty period we get on these products?
Warranty is mantioned on each of the products. Some have full 1 year manufacturer warranty and some have remaining manufacturer warranty or no warranty.
What is remaining manufacturer warranty?
If a product has been mentioned as coming with remaining manufacturer warranty, it means you will get the warranty from the date of first activation of the product as per the data of official company servers. So whatever balance warranty remains till the expiration of the original warranty, you will get that. For example if a mobile phone has been activated on 01-01-2022, then the warranty will be valid till 31-12-2022.
