Extended Hardware Service

Extended Hardware Service extends the standard device warranty to cover you for a full three or four years, depending on the coverage purchased.

In the event of a manufacturer defect, we’ll ship a replacement device in advance of the damaged hardware being returned. Replacement devices are shipped within 3-5 business days via prepaid shipping.

Coverage for accidental damage can be added during the purchase process, through choosing either the Student Warranty or the Complete for Business scheme.



Student and Teacher Warranty

Surface Student Warranty is the smart way to maximise uptime in your classroom. If a device stops functioning – whether it’s a cracked screen, a spill, or power surge damage – it’s covered.

With basic and premium options, schools can make two or three claims over the three year warranty period. The $99 excess per claim keeps upfront costs lower for everyone, and rewards those who don’t incur damage.
