Ordering from DRE
We will provide a formal, written price quotation confirming an informal verbal or emailed price. This can be communicated by email, fax, or postal mail. Due to the nature of our business, all equipment quoted is subject to availability and/or prior sale.
DRE also works with customers who have medical equipment available for trade-in. Ask your DRE sales representative about this option.
When you are ready to order, please contact us to confirm current prices, payment arrangement, availability, and delivery time of your medical equipment or accessories. Whenever possible, we request a hard copy purchase order to ensure that your order is processed properly.
This warranty is given in place of all other warranties, expressed or implied. No statement or claim about the product by an employee, agent, or dealer of DRE shall constitute a warranty by DRE or give rise to any liability or obligation of DRE.
DRE, Inc. warranties its equipment to be free of defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and with appropriate maintenance. Length of warranty varies from product to product, please ask your DRE representative for specific warranty coverage. For plastics, rubber or other expendable items, DRE warrants only that such parts will be free of defects in materials and workmanship at the time of purchase.
We will repair or replace any defective item or parts covered under the warranty that are returned to us within the warranty period. The following information is required: RMA number (call DRE to obtain), a letter stating the problem, serial number, and copy of invoice or, in lieu of invoice, the purchaser's name, date of purchase, phone number and address.
Equipment that has been damaged is excluded from this warranty and will be repaired for a fee. Please contact your freight company to submit any claims for shipping damage.
Please do not have your equipment repaired by a third party without prior written authorization. Doing so may void your original warranty.
Extended Warranty Available
In some areas, where we have properly trained, certified, and equipped Authorized Service Representatives, we may be able to offer you an Extended Warranty for your equipment. Upon expiration of our warranty, you may obtain preventive maintenance and repairs from the original manufacturer or from any organization of your choice.

Stock & Inventory
DRE lists popular medical and surgical equipment in the marketplace. Our factory new items are usually available and in stock.
