Refurbished IT equipment is previously used equipment that has been restored to a like-new working condition. The equipment is completely wiped of any data, health checked, cleaned and then cosmetically graded depending on the wear and tear.
No. The equipment has usually been lifted from a desk so has been in working condition up until it has been refurbished.
Our equipment originates from either ex-corporate or ex-government, sourced from global corporations and government departments throughout Europe. Some of our items are sourced from the manufacturer or retail partners.
The ‘Redundant’ IT equipment is collected and brought into our warehouse. All items are barcoded, scanned and processed into our bespoke tracking system. An audit is completed to determine if the equipment is suitable for remarketing.
All data bearing equipment is data-wiped to the highest Government standard using Blancco Data Cleaner guaranteeing 100% permanent erasure of data. By utilising Blancco software, we ensure all of the data from the IT Assets is securely and completely destroyed prior to remarketing or recycling. Data erased by Blancco is permanent; it cannot be recovered. Blancco wipes each drive 3 times before passing it as 100% successfully erased. This in turn allows the IT Asset to be safely remarketed without any risk of remaining customer residual data, protecting against fraud and loss of sensitive company data.
Repairs (if required) are carried out on the equipment. A new and legal Microsoft Refurbisher operating license is installed. The equipment is cleaned, packed, graded and shelved in our warehouse until sold.
We offer New, Grade A or Grade B products. You can view our grading guide here.
