Q. I placed my order at 5pm on Friday with Express Delivery when can I expect the order to be delivered.
A. Beyond 2000 cut off time for orders is 4pm, and Saturday and Sunday are not classed as working days, therefore your Express Delivery (1-2 Working Days) should arrive on the Tuesday or Wednesday (outlying areas of the UK may have longer delivery times)
Q. I saw an item at a price and checked it specification then when I went to order it the price had increased. Why ?
A. The Beyond 2000 website is updated 24 hours a day and therefore prices and availability on the website can change at any time.
Q: How do I search for the products I want to buy?
A: There are several ways to locate products. The first way is to use the product search box on the left hand side of the navigation bar. Simply type in the model, make or any part of the two and press enter. You will then be presented with a selection of refinement options on a drop down menu. If you don't know the details of the product you're looking for, you can use the navigation bar to look for the product type, i.e. Components, PCs, laptops, etc. and drill down to the exact product by browsing our on-line catalogue.
Q: I can't find the item I am looking for with the search feature.
A: Try to make your search string less exact for example; For a "Seagate Barracuda IV 120GB Hard Drive" Try "Seagate" or "Barracuda" or "120" or "Drive"
Q: What happens if a product I choose is discontinued?
A: Our team of product experts are constantly updating our website to bring you the latest in computer technology, however there may be an occasion when products quickly become discontinued. In this event our experts will make every attempt to locate the product you have ordered. If this is not possible they will then offer you an alternative product or a refund of any monies paid. We will always do this in least time possible so that you can make alternative arrangements should you wish to.
Q: Why can I not speak to a sales person?
A: The Beyond 2000 web site is designed to enable our customers to browse at their leisure without pressure. With our easy to navigate site you can quickly choose and customise your own PC systems, find upgrade components and generally find product information in advance of your purchasing time. This, we believe, is the best way to present our products to our customers. If you have any questions relating to a sale contact us at Customer Service.
