Frequently Asked Questions
How will you handle the disposal of sensitive information on a used tape library?

We understood the importance of securely eradicating the sensitive or confidential data on your used tape libraries. 

Depending on the device's condition and your requests, we can either securely wipe the used tape library through state-of-the-art data destruction methods or physically destroy the used tape library via degaussing, shredding, or other methods.

We can perform the data eradication or physical destruction at our facility or yours (on-premises), depending on your requests.

Being R2v3 & RIOS certified, we will ensure to eliminate the risk of your sensitive information being compromised.

How can I sell my used corporate tape libraries?

Step 1: send us a list of assets (your used corporate tape libraries and other IT assets you'd like to sell). 

Step 2: we'll send a quote back to you, listing our price offer for each item

Step 3: you can either negotiate or accept the offer, and once we agree on a price, you can package and ship the corporate tape libraries to our facility. If you want, we can also arrange to pick up the assets from your premises.

Are my used corporate tape libraries worth anything?

The value we'll offer for your used corporate tape libraries will vary depending on several factors:

  • Age: the older an IT asset is, the lower its market price will be
  • Condition: a used storage tape library in good condition will be priced higher compared to those with functional or cosmetic defects
  • Availability of newer models: most electronics equipment will decrease in price when a direct replacement has been released. If there isn't any direct replacement for the tape library (even if it's fairly old), the price should remain stable.
  • Rarity: very rare used storage tape library can go up in price due to scarcity.

However, you shouldn't underestimate the value of your used corporate tape libraries, even if they seem too old or too broken at the moment. Give us a call, and we'll send a quote with a fair valuation of your IT assets.
