Selling to Industry Trading allows you to unlock the remaining value of your redundant equipment. Industry Trading has established global sales channels for new and second hand equipment which means that equipment can be purchased from clients for market-leading values. Moving these redundant assets into the secondary market delays recycling and helps to avoid landfill disposal. Industry Trading offers two IT purchasing services to unlock the remaining value in your redundant IT equipment:
Full Service Asset Buy Back
Full Service Asset Buy Back allows you to retain ownership of redundant assets throughout the process. This is the current industry standard for IT remarketing. Your equipment is collected, tested and graded, prior to a final purchase price being established. Final transfer of ownership occurs when Industry Trading has paid for the tested equipment.
Hassle Free 'as is' Purchasing
Industry Trading has found some clients have had negative experiences with traditional remarketing, where chargebacks and service fees can exceed the purchase price offered on their assets. Due to Industry Trading's understanding of the continuing markets we are able to offer "as is" purchase prices for your redundant IT equipment.
As Industry Trading accepts the risk for damages etc. your disposal becomes a hassle free experience. You request a quote (advising make, model and status) and Industry Trading will provide a market competitive offer to purchase your equipment "as is". Your offer includes services such as collection and testing. Data destruction can also be provided on these assets for an additional fee. Transfer of ownership is at the point of collection, with full payment prior to collection.
MRI pays competitive prices for working computers that can be refurbished and resold. MRI's integrated solution to IT disposal allows our clients to send us 'the good with the bad'. Assets with potential for reuse are refurbished, and items of no value are recycled. Items recycled attract a small fee; those with value are awarded a rebate.
The net result is that a typical disposal can be much less expensive than expected, or may even provide a real return to the client. Generally PCs, laptops, LCD screens or servers less than four years old will have some sort of residual value. CRT monitors and printers, however, have little resale value. MRI publishes a monthly value recovery price list.
Equipment is tested by our technical services, existing data is removed, the item is cleaned of any identifying marks and then repaired or upgraded in preparation for remarketing. Our refurbishment facilities are compliant with the quality standards prescribed in ISO 9000 standards. Refurbished product is marketed through our factory outlets located in Sydney and Melbourne, Ebay and other Ecommerce sites, and our own extensive dealer network. Some product is exported to developing countries for reuse.
MRI has also developed an innovative employee buy back program we call 'Partners and Friends'. End-of-use assets are collected, refurbished and offered back to employees at arms' length, with MRI providing a warranty on the equipment and a hassle-free web based solution for ordering and tracking product.
