HP Care Pack - Enhanced Protection for your HP Products (Part -1)

We see astonishing number of queries around warranty packs, care packs, support services, components covered, applicable models, and so on. We figured out that the confusion is obvious amidst the lack of clarity. Hence this blog.

We are going to take HP in this series, and will later expand to other most popular warranty services. This one if just part one of a two-part series on warranty services for HP products. We intend to cover introduction to HP Care Pack, and "should you buy one”? You can skip to part two of this series for a more details into HP’s warranty services, including tips on which one is right for your device.

So, let us start.

First things first. HP Care Pack is the official name for warranty services business at HP, by HP. In India alone, the business is estimated to serve thousands of customers from dedicated support centres, via phone, chat, email and some on-site help as well. It is worth noting that HP Care Pack is an add-on to a valid base warranty.

A valid warranty on your device means one less thing to worry about and focus on being productive. During warranty, you get round the clock access to a team of experts available to support you, plus a range of other services tailored to meet your needs. HP care Pack is designed to keep you protected from costs involved in post-warranty repairs and support services which can run very high at times.

HP Care Pack’s Benefits

When we purchase a new laptop, desktop, printer or any hardware, it comes with an original warranty (also known as base warranty). If your product faces any issue during this period, then it will be covered. However, as soon as this warranty expires and if your product gets damaged or needs expert technical support, it may burn a hole in your pocket. You can de-risk this by paying a small premium towards purchasing HP Care Pack. It can cover your accidental damages as well from drop or spills - if you have got the right care pack.

An HP care pack may offer you one or more of these services:
