Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
What supplies do I need to return?
Any unused supplies that were provided by Xerox as part of your contract and are in the original Xerox carton should be returned using this process.
Should I ship each consumable individually?
Please return all unused supplies using an over box. Placing a shipping label on — or otherwise marking — supplies compromises the packaging. Instead, place all supplies in a shipping box or on a pallet. There is no minimum number of items for a shipping box.
What should I do if I only have one item to return?
Please place the item in an over box. Placing a shipping label on — or otherwise marking — supplies compromises the packaging. Instead, place all supplies in a shipping box or on a pallet. There is no minimum number of items for a shipping box.
Do I need to provide a detailed list of the items I’m returning?
It is not necessary to provide a detailed list of items.
Should I return all my unused inventory?
