5 Questions to Ask When Considering Pre-Owned Networking Equipment

The secondary network equipment market is trusted by companies around the world who are looking for quality equipment, available on-demand at significant cost savings.  While many suppliers claim to be leaders in the pre-owned, used and refurbished networking and telecommunication equipment space, few deliver on customer expectations.

Here are 5 Questions to Ask When Considering Pre-Owned Networking Equipment as recommended by Worldwide Supply.

  1. Are you TL 9000 certified?  These are quality assurance certifications only achieved by companies who can validate the quality of the products, services and customer care they provide.
  2. Do you have an inventory of equipment in your own warehouse?  Select a partner who does.  This will ensure gear is available and ready to ship when you need it.
  3. What kind of warranty do you offer on products you sell?  Partner with a supplier who provides at least a one-year warranty and ideally, a vendor like Worldwide Supply with a lifetime warranty.
  4. Do you offer a trade-in program for excess or de-installed equipment?  Working with a secondary market supplier who offers this service can help you finance needed equipment by providing you with cash or a credit from the sale of your unused gear.
  5. Do you belong to UNEDA?  Being a member of this world-class association helps validate a supplier’s industry reputation.

These are preliminary questions you must ask potential pre-owned networking equipment vendors when considering who is the right partner for your IT needs.  Vendors you are considering should also be able to provide a list of references upon request.
