Trade-in your old PC included

TIME Computers, the leading UK manufacturer and retailer of consumer home computers, is announcing additions to its CoverGold warranty service that ensure even more value. From today, TIME CoverGold customers can take advantage of a trade-in option scheme, 100% cash back feature, £300 of vouchers for consumables, transferable cover if the customer sells the PC and new cheaper cover for models under £599.

The trade-in scheme offered, allows customers after three years of ownership to claim guaranteed money off when they upgrade to a new PC and CoverGold package. The buy-back prices will soon be posted on the TIME website ( and will be calculated from published trade market values. CoverGold customers not wishing to wait three years to re-purchase will get a discount on their new package, equivalent to any unused portion of their old cover.

The other additional benefits of taking out CoverGold warranty include:

· £300 worth of discount vouchers off a wide range of retail products such as paper and ink cartridges

· Transferable cover if the customer sells the PC before the warranty runs out

· A new price point for 3 year CoverPlus for systems priced under £599

“We believe that this is the most comprehensive support package in the UK. It’s designed to help computer buyers get maximum value from their PC”, says Colin Middlemiss of TIME Computers. “You wouldn’t buy a car without having some sort of idea of its trade-in value, we don’t believe that you should do the same with a computer. As we see the home computer market maturing, it’s our job is to ensure that we provide customers with easy ways to make the most of their computer throughout its lifetime and not just at purchase. The extra service added to our CoverGold service demonstrates our commitment to providing value for money, quality goods and services to both first and replacement computer buyers.”

CoverGold is the already one of the leading high street computer warranty services available. The changes are added to packages that already include priority servicing, exclusive upgrade service, remote on-site repair facility and 100% cashback if the warranty is not utilised. The warranties cost from just £10 a month and the new additions make TIME’s warranties one of the most competitive and feature-packed available.

The bought back computers will be recycled and then sold through TIME Group’s pre-owned computer division EMIT.
