When considering purchasing IT equipment we want to ensure that buying refurbished kit is as easy and attractive as buying new products. The concept of buying refurbished IT products is a compelling alternative with a blend of economic, environmental, and ethical benefits and it makes practical sense in today's world.
Recommerce IT is part of Green IT Disposal Ltd, and was established in 2010 to ensure the safe disposal and responsible recycling of old IT equipment. And we want to play our part in helping current and future generations by providing them with the option to save money whilst reducing electronic waste. By buying a refurbished device, you are doing just that.
There are several reasons why buying refurbished products makes sense such as cost-effectiveness, quality and warranty and sustainability considerations and we will explore each one in more detail below.
One of the most obvious points when comparing new and refurbished kits is the cost difference. You can get great cost savings as refurbished devices are often significantly cheaper than their brand-new counterparts, which makes them an attractive option for budget-conscious consumers. At Recommerce IT, one of our objectives is to give you the same experience with a refurbished IT product as you would get when buying new, at a lower price. By exploring our range of laptops, monitors, desktops and other products you can see that you can achieve this cost effectiveness without compromising on style, spec and functionality.
Quality and Warranty
All our refurbished products sold online are covered with a free 1 year warranty on the hardware which covers you for 12 months from the date of your receipt. This helps provide our customers with total peace of mind with every purchase. The products undergo our stringent quality testing to make sure they meet industry standards. We can sometimes even address defects or issues that may have arisen during the initial manufacturing process so you can benefit from devices that have been thoroughly inspected and, in some cases, improved upon.
If you are considering buying refurbished products for the first time, we want to give you confidence so by providing a warranty comparable to those offered with new products, we offer peace of mind, reinforcing the reliability of refurbished devices. The process is very simple. If you have a problem, please contact us as soon as possible with your order number and serial number of the product.
Our experts may be able to resolve your issue over the phone but if not we advise you to return it to us. We receive (or collect) the product, and examine the fault. We then prepare a replacement order (like for like or nearest similar alternative) and return it to you with our courier on a next business day service. As with any service there are more detailed terms and conditions on our website including things we can’t cover.
We are all becoming increasingly aware of the environmental impact of our actions. As a technology company we believe it is our responsibility to recognise the need for conscious shopping. The production and disposal of electronic devices contribute significantly to environmental degradation so by choosing to buy refurbished IT equipment you create less electronic waste, reduce carbon emission, advocate a circular economy of reuse, recycle and extend the lifespan of existing devices, reducing the demand for new manufacturing and making a contribution to saving the planet.
We are always seeking technological advancements so by taking the decision to buy refurbished IT products you are making a pragmatic and forward-thinking choice.
The economic benefits, coupled with the positive environmental and ethical implications and the peace of mind that our quality assurances and warranty brings means that in many cases buying refurbished IT products just makes sense for individuals and businesses alike.
