If your hardware has failed, and is still under warranty, then you can request an RMA (Return Material Authorization) to have the item repaired. An RMA is a unique ID number that allows our tech support and repair teams to track your issue and repair your devices in a timely manner.
Before requesting an RMA, you should first try searching for a resolution in our extensive knowledge base and documentation libraries. If you can’t find the help you’re looking for (in KBs and Documentation), then you can request an RMA.

One of our support reps will attempt to diagnose and fix your problem over the phone. If the rep cannot fix the issue, you will be directed to fill out an RMA form so that you can return your product for repair.
You can find the RMA request form here: https://www.safefleet.net/support/rma-support/
Units that are out-of-warranty can still be issued an RMA. Once the unit is received by SafeFleet, an estimate will be provided for the repairs, along with a diagnostic fee.
Note that the diagnostic fee will be charged for ALL out-of-warranty units, regardless of whether or not the customer wishes to proceed with the repairs. Diagnostic fees will also be applied when units are found non-faulty or irreparable.
A copy of the SFWR Warranty can be found in the footer of every page on this website.
The following table provides a breakdown of all diagnostic fees for our Waste & Recycling product line. A diagnostic fee will only be charged for out of warranty units. All prices are in USD. Canadian customers will charged the same price in CAD.

As we release newer products, we also have to retire our older generation hardware and software. Our retired products will fall in one of two categories: End of Life (EOL), or End of Life & Support (EOLS).
These products are no longer sold or updated, but they remain actively supported. We will continue to troubleshoot issues over email and phone, and our documents will remain active. However, these products not receive updated documentation or regular software or firmware updates.
Welcome to the SFWR Q&A section. Here you’ll find a growing collection of frequently asked questions (with accompanying answers) for our waste & recycling line of fleet management products.
This section is primarily divided in two sections: FAQs and KB Articles.
What’s the difference between an FAQ and an Knowledge Base (KB) article? KB articles are written to provide detailed troubleshooting instructions for commonly asked technical questions, whereas FAQs typically don’t have detailed instructions or troubleshooting steps.
SFWR Knowledge Base Articles
Our FAQs section is still growing. If you would like to help contribute to this FAQ, we’d love to post your question here so that it might help future customers. Jump to our Contact section to submit a question for this page.
