5. How can you offer the highest rate of return for surplus inventory?
Tech-Away of Texas, LLC offers your choice of direct purchase or revenue sharing for any of your excess inventory.
Direct purchase works best for companies that need to get old or obsolete products or inventory out of the warehouse and off the books quickly. We provide an accurate assessment on the value of your excess inventory, make you a fair offer, and get you paid FAST.
The revenue sharing option works best for companies who are willing to wait for the items to sell. With this option, we provide a detailed, accurate audit trail for all materials consigned to us.
6. How can I get a quote?
If you already have an inventory list made up, we will make an immediate offer based on that information.
If self-inventory is not an option, we will send a procurement specialist -- at no charge to your company -- to survey and evaluate the value of your inventory. Then we make a purchase offer based on our appraisal. For this option, please either:
7. How does Tech-Away of Texas, LLC guarantee data security?
All equipment that has hard drives or data storage capacity are either physically destroyed through shredding, degaussed or wiped using an over-writing procedure which makes data recovery impossible. A destruction report can also be provided upon request.
8. What if I have good computers that I need to get a ROI (Return on Investment)?
We have a department that focuses on Asset Recovery, that will assess, de-install, and remarket your company's IT equipment. They will give you a free consultation to see if this is your best action for your business.
9. What is your environmental policy?
Tech-Away of Texas, LLC is committed to ensuring the minimum impact on the environment at every level of our business. We strive to prevent pollution and eliminate e-waste (such as computer and IT equipment) in landfills. We recycle everything from cardboard and packing materials to plastics, batteries and lead. We strive for zero landfill and as such we do not have a dumpster at our facility.
10. Will my asset tags be removed?
Yes. Tech-Away of Texas, LLC removes all removable identifying marks from each piece of equipment, including any asset tags.
We check for a client asset tag or any other identifying stickers during our inspection process, to ensure all client-specific identifying tags and stickers are removed. Identifying marks such as permanent engravings will not be removed from equipment being dismantled, only from equipment of significant value that is being resold.
11. How does Tech-Away of Texas, LLC remarket my old equipment?
