In order to guarantee a fast delivery and good understanding with you as our customer, we, at Ahead-IT, use a fixed order procedure, applicable at every order.
1. You order the desired products via our website (preferably), via E-mail or fax.
2. You will receive a PDF invoice, which needs to be paid in advance within 7 days.*
3. Your order will be carefully assembled, tested and prepared for transport.
4. After confirmation of your payment by our bank/online payment platform your order will be sent straight away.*
* = not applicable to accounts with a credit limit; this account allows you to pay up to 30 days after delivery (see ‘Payment possibilities’ for more information).
After order/payment all products/parts which are in stock will be reserved for you immediately. If certain products/parts are not in stock, they will be ordered from our suppliers.
As soon as all products/parts that are needed to assemble your systems are in stock, the actual assembling will start, the test procedure and preparing for transport.
If it concerns a tailor-made product, an advance payment is required before we order any products needed for the realisation of your order. (e.g.: software licenses, racks, some switches, ... )
After confirmation of payment by our bank or online payment platform, the order will be sent straight away providing it is already ready for transport.
You are welcome to send a POP (proof of payment) via your customer account if you did not pay via our online payment platform. This in order to speed up the settlement of the order.
To be able to deliver your order as soon as possible, Ahead-IT has, on average, about 100 servers of various kinds in stock in the warehouse in Wetteren. This offers us the possibility of delivering very fast, a few days after you placed the order, at most. We also carry plentiful stock of workstations, VPS/storage & individual parts.
