Refurbishing Process

With over 20 trained technicians on-site, our IT refurbishment capability encompasses all four primary product types: Desktop PC’s, Laptops, Servers and Workstations, as well as modular/component part testing and quality checks.

Approved Procedures

Our Microsoft MAR approved procedures incorporate internal and external cleaning, component level testing, upgrades/downgrades, image builds and final burn-in testing. See more details about our Microsoft MAR partnership (MAR Link). Stringent internal requirements ensure that each of our refurbished machines is cosmetically suitable for reuse, with careful attention paid to rectify or replace any defects.
