Sorry, we do not at any time request credit card information or any other personal financial data. We only accept credit card payments online via our secure encrypted payment gateway hosted by the Commonwealth Bank and in store using a secure EFTPOS terminal.
We are open Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm however do our best to answer email inquiries after hours and on weekends also. Please note we close for all public holidays observed in Victoria and operate on Australian Eastern Standard time.
Although we do ship nationwide, we only have one store open to the public and it's located in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne about 25 minutes from the CBD. You can find the address on our contact page.
Yes we do! Whether you purchased it originally from us or not. If you are local to our store drop in or give us a call for a quote. Prices will vary based on complexity and time required to complete the job. Our rates are extremely competitive and our technicians are very best as what they do.
No, sorry we do not. Apple make it extremely difficult to service their products without access to the exact tools and components then restrict access to these to make sure they can charge extremely high service prices when you try to get your item repaired through their first party stores or 'partners'.
No, sorry we do not. Apple simply don’t allow us to by ensuring their distributors won’t sell us any stock. We expect this is due to the fact that they think 99% of the time we would recommend a PC over their under-powered and overpriced products. Well they would be wrong. It would actually be 100% of the time.
No, sorry. Laptops are not overly customisable and quiet often completely soldered together and not modular at all. We can help you find a suitable laptop for your needs, but cannot build one for you.
Typically no. We may allow this on a case by case basis in rare circumstances for one or two components but not if the majority of the components were purchased elsewhere and only if you are local to the store and do not require shipping.
No, we only ship within Australia. Goods ordered with non-Australian delivery addresses will be cancelled before being processed.
Yes, we do but only on orders containing a Custom PC. The maximum Lay-by term is 120 days and requires a 5% initial deposit within 72 hours of placing the order to lock in. Orders will only be released upon final payment. For more information visit our Lay-By page for details.
No. Sorry. Everything we sell is 100% brand new and we do not deal in used goods at all. The only exception is if your Evatech built custom PC is enrolled in our Bleeding-Edge program and you wish to upgrade a component. In this circumstance a trade in credit on the component you are returning will be offered pursuant to the terms of the Bleeding Edge program only.
Sorry but we get thousands of these requests and simply do not have the time to spend to properly vet and consider such unsolicited proposals. Our marketing team will on occasion reach out to content creators they identify as potential partners but as a general rule does not consider unsolicited offers. Sorry!
When purchasing anything other than a custom PC in store or online you are covered by the manufacturers stated warranty term and conditions unless this is superseded by Australian consumer law. To make a warranty claim you must first contact us to report the problem you are experiencing to receive an RA number. Once you have an RA number you can then return the item to us for warranty repair or replacement. If the item is Dead on Arrival (meaning faulty out of the box upon delivery) and you inform us within 7 days of receiving the item you will be eligible for priority handling, reimbursement of returning shipping costs and where available advance replacements upon receipt of the item and confirmation of the fault. For more details or if you have any questions please check our terms of service page or contact us. Some items (like monitors and network devices) are handled directly with the manufacturer. In these cases a warranty pamphlet will be provided in the box and you can call to arrange your warranty service without going through Evatech as the middle-man for much faster turnaround time.
Customer service is our first and foremost priority. When you buy an Evatech Custom PC you can rest assured you will get the very best in after sales support and warranty. There are two forms of warranty that cover our custom PCs. The optional Premium cover warranties are available to select when customising your PCs and offer both pick and return services Australia wide for up to 5 years with all labour, repair and component costs covered. The standard return to base warranty covers all systems for labour, repair and component costs for a period of 3 years or up to manufacturer warranty stated warranty period on a per component basis. For more details or if you have any questions please check our terms of service page or contact us.
