We are an "IT Asset Management" company, which means that we work with companies who have large amounts of data bearing equipment (i.e. PCs, laptop, servers) and we manage their end of life inventory, delete all data, clean and prepare for sale. We take working machines from the initial user and refurbish/remarket/rejuvenate them, they are cleaned inside and out ready for use!
NO!! The refurbished products on offer are taken from an office desk (with permission of course!) in working condition.
Laptops/PCs that are sold with this in the title are sold with a BLANK hard drive and will not boot without the correct media. You will need to have the correct media and know-how to install Windows/Linux/other operating system. We do no supply any media with these machines.
Yes, all of our new kit is manufacturer sealed (i.e. never been opened) as you would expect to receive from another other online retailer - all of our graded products are clearly marked as such.
Our refurbished stock is graded and each one is different, we show you the stock available and it's condition this means you can chose which exact model you want. In some cases we have too much stock to show single products so we group them into grades A - C
There are many reasons for buying refurbished kit ranging from a business's requirement for consistency in equipment to a savvy home user simply wanting to make their pounds go that much further. The build quality on our corporate refurb units is exceptional - particularly the T60 and X60 ranges!
We do the refurbishing - we aren't just a reseller we are an Asset Management Company - see www.tier1.com for further details! We are trusted by large corporate companies and retailers to manage their inventory.
Not only do we provide amazing value on all our products but you can be happy in the knowledge that we are actively pursuing a greener approach to the IT supply chain; in fact by buying from Tier1 you are reducing your carbon footprint when compared to buying new kit for more details see here.
We have been in business for years (est 1995) and online since 1999 so we are here to stay.
"We source some our products from large corporate businesses and "refurbish" them which essentially means they are completely wiped of any data, then health checked, cleaned, checked again and graded depending on the wear and tear. For more details see our refurbished page.
Some products are returns from large retail chains or even the manufacturer which again have been through our stringent checks before shipping.
This of course depends on what you buy and our products will generally have explicit instructions on what is included if it isn't declared as included then it probably isn't but if you are unsure in anyway please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call customer services on 0161 777 1007.
