  • Shipment of the damaged product to a Dell repair facility
  • Replacement of a product if it has been accidentally damaged beyond repair
Accidental Damage Service* can offer peace of mind for hardware systems exposed to high-risk usage and environments where end users are part of a mobile workforce, or in field sales, shared workspaces, retail or classroom settings.
