When pre-owned is right for you

Over more than 30 years in the industry, we’ve identified several situations where investing in pre-owned equipment can be an effective alternative in meeting your IT requirements:

When your IT requirements are temporary

A short window to reap the benefits of your system often precludes you from receiving the savings that a long-term investment will deliver.

When you are maintaining an existing IT environment

Adding capacity to an existing environment, keeping it up to date or simply maintaining a legacy system often requires assets that are no longer available on the market. You can meet all your IT requirements by financing a blend of pre-owned and new equipment.

When core IT functionality is all you need

When you need solid, dependable IT equipment, but the newest IT doesn’t fit into your current business strategy, you can save on resources with pre-owned assets.

When you need an efficient backup system or swing kit

When you need an additional system for disaster recovery plans, peak load periods, development, data-migration (swing kit) or testing, pre-owned assets are a cost-effective way to get what you need.

When resources are low

When your acquisition costs are lower, you save money in the long term as well as the short. The savings range from lowering your initial expenses to lowering IT training and software licensing costs, saving you money throughout the IT lifecycle.

When IT sustainability is essential

Reuse of IT equipment is a cost effective way to meet your IT needs while also helping the environment.
