Frequently Asked Questions
How can I sell my old IT equipment?
Whether it's a server or it's an industrial-grade backup tape, there are always viable ways to sell your old IT equipment and make some money from it.

While your options may vary depending on the type of equipment, your location, or other factors, basically, you have three major options in selling your old IT equipment:

1. Finding your own buyers on peer-to-peer marketplaces (like eBay), you have the most freedom in setting your prices and "promoting" your IT equipment, but it can be difficult to find the right buyer willing to purchase the goods at your terms.

2. Listing your IT equipment on classified sites like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or even Amazon. It's typically easier to find buyers on these platforms when compared to on peer-to-peer marketplaces, but you'll have less freedom.

3. Selling your IT equipment to trusted IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) companies that will take the goods off your hands. The easiest and quickest option (and you can still sell your IT equipment at a fair market price). If your IT equipment contains sensitive/regulated data, these ITAD companies will also perform secure data eradication for you.

What is the best place to sell used IT equipment?
Out of the three options we've discussed above, the best option for selling your IT equipment can vary depending on several key factors:

• Condition/age of the equipment: if the IT equipment is fairly old and/or is no longer in good condition, then finding your own buyer via listing sites or peer-to-peer marketplaces can be difficult, and it's unlikely you'll get a fair price on these platforms. Selling to an IT Asset Disposition company may be the most viable option in such cases.

• Demand: some types of IT equipment may be more in-demand than others. Also, customers may prefer certain brands or models over others. If your IT equipment is in-demand, then it's probably better to list the IT asset on peer-to-peer or classified marketplaces so you can maximize its value. However, if the IT equipment is not very in-demand, selling used IT equipment to an ITAD company can save you some time.

• Sensitive data: if the IT equipment stores data (i.e., hard drives, SSDs, smartphones/tablets, etc.), and you are not 100% confident about wiping the data on your own, then it's best to just sell the IT equipment to IT Asset Disposition companies like Big Data Supply Inc. to ensure data security and compliance with relevant regulations.

Is old IT equipment worth anything?
The answer will depend on the type of IT equipment you are trying to get, as well as where you are buying the used IT equipment from.

The biggest pros of buying used IT equipment is obviously price. Used IT equipment will obviously be priced lower than brand new ones, and you might be lucky in getting a fairly new piece of IT asset in a fairly good condition. Buying used IT assets can let you increase the number of IT assets quickly while staying on a budget.

The main downside of buying used IT equipment is the fact that you won't get any factory warranty you'd otherwise get from buying brand new IT assets. However, if you are buying from reputable IT Asset Disposition companies like Big Data Supply Inc., you can ask for an inspection sheet for the IT equipment you are going to purchase so you can evaluate its current condition.

If you are buying from reputable sellers (or a friend you can trust), then buying used IT equipment can definitely be worth it so you can maximize their ROI.

Is it worth buying used IT equipment?
The answer will obviously depend on several factors, such as:

• Age: the older an IT equipment is, obviously the lower the market price will be.

• Condition: fairly self-explanatory, a "healthy" piece of IT equipment will be priced higher compared to IT assets with cosmetics of functional defects.

• Newer model(s) available: IT equipment will typically decrease in price when a direct replacement has been released (i.e., a used iPhone 12 will decrease in price as soon as iPhone 13 has been announced.) If there hasn't been any direct replacement released, even if the IT asset is relatively old, then typically, the price won't go down a lot.

• Rarity: sometimes, very old IT equipment can go up in price if it's no longer available on the market (i.e., for collectors)

This is a non-exhaustive list, and there are other factors that may affect your IT equipment's price. Fortunately, it's now fairly easy to check for the average marketplace of specific IT equipment, as you can simply search for similar goods on sites like Amazon or eBay.

Nevertheless, many people were surprised at the value they can get out of their used IT equipment, so don't be discouraged from selling your used IT equipment even if it may seem too old or too broken at the moment.

Big Data Supply Inc. understands the dynamic nature of technology advancements, so if you want to sell used IT equipment not listed here, feel free to contact us and provide a detailed list of your equipment.

How do you determine the value of the IT equipment I'm selling?

At Big Data Supply Inc., we conduct a meticulous valuation process to determine the value of your IT equipment, and we’ll take several key factors into account:

  • The make and model of the equipment. Some brands and models are more popular/in demand than others, which may increase their value when you sell these IT equipment items.
  • The age and condition of the equipment. Newer, fully functional equipment that is still in good condition is worth more than older equipment that is in poor condition. 
  • Current market demand: Big Data Supply Inc. tracks the current market prices for different types of IT equipment, and we’ll use this information to value the IT equipment you sell us.
  • Special features or add-ons: We may value special features or add-ons on your equipment, such as large amounts of memory and high-performance processors. 

We are committed to providing accurate valuations so both parties are satisfied with the quote. Our team of experts will conduct a thorough assessment to ensure a fair and competitive price for each of your IT equipment.

How do you ensure data security and proper data wiping for my IT equipment?

At Big Data Supply Inc., we take data security very seriously, and we’ll prioritize your privacy by using a variety of methods to ensure secure wiping of your data before we resell any of your IT equipment you sell us.

We use the latest technologies and procedures to ensure secure data wiping:

  1. We use advanced data-wiping software to overwrite all data on IT equipment you sell us with random patterns. This makes it impossible to recover the original data through any means. 
  2. For IT equipment that cannot be wiped securely using the software-based approach, we will physically destroy the IT equipment you sell using methods such as shredding or degaussing. This will physically destroy the storage media, so it will be impossible to recover any data.

We offer certificates of data destruction upon request when you sell us used IT equipment, which can help you comply with data privacy regulations as proof that the data on your device has been irrevocably wiped.

Are there any fees or costs associated with selling my IT equipment to you?

In most scenarios, Big Data Supply Inc. covers the costs associated with shipping and handling for the used IT equipment you are selling, particularly for large bulk orders. 

However, in some cases, there may be additional costs required for special services, such as: 

  • On-site data destruction
  • Data migration
  • Asset tagging
  • Custom packaging
  • Expedited shipping

We’ll discuss any potential fees with you upfront, and if you require any of these special services when selling us old IT equipment, we’ll provide you with the appropriate quote before we start the process. 

If you have any questions about costs and fees associated with selling your IT equipment, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our objective is to help you get the best possible value out of your IT equipment while ensuring your data security and privacy.

What is the process for selling and shipping the IT equipment? How long does it take?

The typical process for selling your used IT equipment to Big Data Supply Inc. is as follows: 

  • Contact us: You can contact us through our website or via phone and email. We’ll ask for some basic information about your equipment like make, model, age, and condition. If you have a list of your IT equipment to sell, you can email it to us.
