For businesses looking to maximize their profits by cutting back on expenses, investing in off-lease or refurbished IT equipment, whether it’s desktops, laptops, servers, or network equipment, is an extremely practical and cost-efficient method.
Not only will refurbished equipment save you money in the long run, but they are just as reliable as new equipment and can be a green friendly approach to your small business or corporate IT solutions. Below are the top three reasons companies are purchasing refurbished IT equipment.
It’s no surprise that refurbished and off-lease equipment costs less than brand new equipment. This can provide significant savings for your business. Not only will you be able to purchase quality equipment for a fraction of the price, but you’ll be able to purchase more equipment than you’d be able to if you purchased brand new products.
- Quality & Reliability
The majority of pre-owned equipment finds their way into a refurbishing facility because of corporate IT replacement policies, so just because a particular product was pre-owned doesn’t mean that it won’t work as well as new IT equipment. Many off-lease and refurbished IT equipment providers have certified technicians that understand what it takes to restore equipment back to their original factory settings. These technicians thoroughly inspect, clean and restore all equipment giving them a second life.Another factor that guarantees reliable second-hand equipment is product warranties. Not every provider offers warranties, but those that do generally offer free product repairs or replacements as soon as a problem occurs.
By purchasing refurbished equipment you’re reducing your carbon footprint by keeping e-waste out of landfills. Recovering, reusing, and eventually recycling previously used electronics ensures that they’re being used to their fullest potential and “life expectancy”. Plus the energy it takes to refurbish equipment is substantially less than the energy it takes to produce new equipment. If you’re looking for a more green approach for your business or organization, choosing refurbished IT equipment is definitely the way to go.
