2NDS IT 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 2NDS IT’s understanding of the continuing markets, we are able to offer “as is” purchase prices for your redundant IT equipment.
As 2nDS IT accepts the risk for damages etc. your disposal becomes a hassle-free experience. You request a quote (advising make, model and status) and 2NDS IT 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.
2NDS IT pays competitive prices for working on computers that can be refurbished and resold. 2NDS IT 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, PC,s, 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. 2NDS IT 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. The refurbished product is marketed through our factory outlets located in Sydney and Melbourne, eBay and other E-commerce sites, and our own extensive dealer network. Some product is exported to developing countries for reuse.
2NDS IT has also developed an innovative employee buyback program we call ‘Partners and Friends’. End-of-use assets are collected, refurbished and offered back to employees at arms’ length, with 2NDS IT providing a warranty on the equipment and a hassle-free web-based solution for ordering and tracking product.
