Buying used telecom equipment saves money
It's as simple as that. Generally, buying refurbished telecom equipment can save the consumer anywhere from 20-70% off retail. This is possibly the most glaring benefit of buying used.
Newer technology, lower price
Large organizations have the capital to adopt the out with the old in with the new attitude about their telecom equipment and regularly upgrade. This means that newer models of telecom equipment are in the reseller's hands and soon to be yours. This could be the only way to purchase newer technology at drastically reduced prices.
Additional cash for telecom equipment sellers
From the seller's perspective, off-loading equipment you're no longer using can be quite lucrative. Rather than sending it to the junkyard, why not make a buck or two? Selling your old equipment gives you that much more money in the bank to invest in newer technologies.
Free up valuable real-estate
All too often when new equipment comes in, the old components are placed into storage which is space that could be better used. Freeing up that space can enable your company to use it for more lucrative activities or to just clear the way for more important company assets.
Locate hard to find parts and equipment
Companies getting rid of unused telecom components are not just tossing 2 year old technologies. Hard to find, older telecom models make their way into reseller's stores and their parts can be used to revamp your existing systems. Buyers can take advantage of this and hold on to their old components a bit longer.
Refurbished telecom equipment sellers have a myriad of products on their shelves. Instead of shopping four different manufacturers to put together your telecom system, you might be able to find everything you'll need in one place. An added benefit is that if you don't find what you're looking for, the reseller can put their feelers out and notify you once it becomes available.
Contribute to local organizations
A perk for both the buyer and the seller is the opportunity to put money back into your community. Resellers of telecom equipment can be found online, but generally there are resellers within your community that are always looking for equipment to buy and sell. Try to shop local first!
Repurposing equipment is a viable way of reducing waste. If companies getting rid of old equipment simply disposed of it, they would no doubt make their way to landfills contributing to our already over polluted planet. By giving your old components new life or purchasing refurbished telecom equipment, your organization will be doing its part to go green.
There truly is no downside for buyers or sellers in this scenario. Giving your old telecom equipment up for resale and purchasing used should always be option number one. Contact us today to find out more about our used telecom equipment inventory options.
