Delivering solutions that drive business results

Lenovo Authorized Warranty Service

Blackcreek is an authorized warranty service provider for most Lenovo products.

Upon validation of the claim (which we can assist with, and we aim to minimize cost to you (if any)), Lenovo ships the parts to us and pays us to perform the repair on their behalf. If you have an on-site warranty – Lenovo covers the cost of a technician coming on-site to perform the repair there. In the case of depot warranty – in most cases you only need to bring the product to our store and we perform the repair there (in most cases). Under certain circumstances (such as to meet service level requirements) Lenovo may dispatch a 3rd party technician to our location or to yours. For ADP (Accidental Damage Protection) claims – in some cases Lenovo requires the unit to be repaired at their facilities which we accommodate. In many cases your warranty can also be upgraded by us. Lenovo also offers Priority Technical Support which in some cases is included with the warranty offering. In cases where additional services are required which are not covered by warranty or Lenovo, we consult with you prior to undertaking those steps.
