What are ITAD Services?
ITAD stands for IT Asset Disposition. It is also called IT Asset Disposal and when there is little or no value left, Electronics Recycling.
Many companies refresh their data center with networking or server upgrades every three to four years. While not brand new, used IT hardware often has a useful life of six or more years. The goal of ITAD is to get some additional return on investment for those IT assets. That is where we come in! Part of our business is to buy pre-owned IT hardware, test it thoroughly, clean it, replace any missing parts from the original configuration, restore cosmetic condition if needed, and resell it with a warranty as refurbished product so it can be used for another few years.
Since 1987, World Data Products has been providing ITAD services for companies with data centers that need to sell surplus or used networking equipment and servers. We also buy used storage arrays and enclosures, computer tape, drives, and even entire tape libraries. Plus, we make the process easy!
Here is how our ITAD process works:
- You send an equipment list by uploading a file or pasting the text into our Sell Surplus Hardware form.
- We send an offer or contact you with any questions.
- Once there is an agreement on the equipment list and package price, we coordinate and pay for shipping to our facility.
- After an operational check of the equipment, we send a check, or, you can use the amount as credit towards a new or refurbished hardware upgrade.
We buy many brands including Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, UCS, Super Micro, EMC, NetApp, Arista Networks and others. We also buy and sell IP phones, Cisco and Ruckus wireless access points and controllers. Whether the package is a few routers, or an entire data center, World Data Products will make the process of selling your decommissioned servers or used networking equipment a breeze!
