Next Business Day On-Site Service

For those times when on-site service is required for a non-critical system, Dell offers Next Business Day On-Site Service3. Designed to provide a base level of customer security, this service option can place a Dell-certified technician at your location the following day, if necessary – after phone-based troubleshooting. In many cases, remote troubleshooting can minimize overall system downtime by getting the issue quickly fixed remotely or helping us to dispatch the right part (if necessary).

Next Business-Day refers to the next business day during the Principal Period of Maintenance, which is Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., excluding holidays4. If the service technician is dispatched for on-site service after 5:00 p.m. customer local time, the service technician may take an additional business day to arrive at your location. The actual response time on the next business day is dependent parts availability, geographical restrictions and terms of your service contract. Once the part is received, the technician will attempt to call you directly to schedule a specific time that is convenient to deliver the service.
