How can I protect my IT equipment in transit?
Standard packing materials is simply not sufficient to protect your IT assets during the shipping process. We are happy to provide shipping materials for your IT assets and shipping insurance free of charge.
A good rule of thumb is to leave no wiggle room for any parts whatsoever. CPU and RAM trays should be taped together, servers should be packed in form fitting polyurethane foam, and GPUs should have custom foam boxes. For more information consult our IT packing instructions page.
What specific server brands are most valuable?
For value, it's less about the brand of server than it is about the model number and the specs of the components. For example, a barebones Dell poweredge r740 without any components in the chassis is actually less valuable than an HPE dl380 proliant gen9.
Where to sell used IT equipment
Where to sell used IT equipment really depends on exactly how much IT equipment and what type of IT equipment.
When dealing with very small quantities of consumer items like single hard drives, 1 or 2 sticks of ram, used laptop, etc. then direct selling on sites like eBay, Reddit hardware swap, or Facebook marketplace will likely be your best option.
If you're selling enterprise-grade IT equipment or large quantities of consumer product, you probably want to source an IT Asset Disposition company like us. Just fill out our get an offer form below with exactly how much of what you have, and we'll be in touch asap to give you a fair market cash price for your equipment.
