Top 3 Reasons to Buy Refurbished IT Equipment

One of the reasons often cited for not considering refurbished IT equipment over new, is reliability. As a company who builds, supplies and supports many thousands of servers nationwide, we are aware that reliability is the number one concern of any IT Manager from any company size. With our company roots set firmly in the legacy server and spares market, we are also mindful that reliability doesn’t just come from brand new IT equipment. With an in-house quality testing and rigorous refurbishment process, ICC’s second-user servers and IT equipment can be just as reliable as their newer counterparts, and a whole lot cheaper too.

In today’s cash strapped times, IT professionals are looking at different ways to stretch their technology budget, while maintaining reliability and maximising up-time.  One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by purchasing high quality refurbished hardware instead of new IT equipment.   Here we have detailed 3 of the top reasons to consider purchasing refurbished hardware from ICC as part of your IT procurement strategy.
