Are you about to replace all or part of your current IT environment? Or are you switching to the cloud? In that case your redundant hardware will often have some residual financial value. By selling your current IT assets, you can give your hardware or the raw materials contained in it a new life, thereby contributing to a circular economy.

Reuse and recycling of hardware

To prevent your hardware from ending up on the scrapheap at the end of its lifecycle, IRENT can purchase it. That way it can be reused or recycled. The amount that we offer will depend on the system type and specifications. As an additional service, we can go to any location you wish to dismantle redundant hardware and pack it professionally, as well as taking care of shipment. What happens to the data stored on the hardware? It will always be erased. However, if you would like a certificate to prove that all personal data has been erased, we offer another additional service: certified data wiping.

Benefits of hardware purchase by IRENT

  • Extract financial value from your redundant hardware
  • Dismantling, packing, shipment and certified data wiping as additional services
  • Reuse or recycling contributes to sustainability

    Renting out purchased hardware or reusing raw materials

    Our main aim when purchasing hardware is to give it a new life by renting it out or supplying it to other parties. After taking delivery of the hardware we test it, replace any components that need replacing, restore it to factory-default settings and install the latest firmware. If a higher standard of data wiping is required, IRENT can also carry out certified data wiping on your old system. If the hardware can’t be reused, we will ensure that its components and materials are recycled.

    “By purchasing old hardware and giving it a new life or recycling it, we can deal more efficiently with valuable raw materials and extend product lifecycles.”
