Anybody familiar with owning and operating a successful internet business has found themselves in the unique position of deciding what to do with their used servers &used routers once they upgrade and install new equipment. There are several options available for people that encounter this predicament. If the equipment is still functional, that is it can still be used effectively to provide the specific type of service for which it was intended, it may be possible to receive some financial compensation for them from a number of different resources.
Believe it or not there are quite a few companies that specialize in buying this type of equipment either individually or in bulk. The price offered for used routers &used servers from companies that offer to buy them are normally pretty low compared to other methods of selling these items; however it is an easy and convenient way of conducting business rapidly while still receiving a financial gain in the process. These companies have to make a profit after they refurbish the equipment which is why they don’t offer top dollar for the equipment.
If the individual wanting to sell the used servers &used routers wants to receive the best possible price instead of settling for what one of these companies will offer, they can list the used equipment for sale in a local newspaper. The process of selling the equipment this way will take a little longer; however the seller has the opportunity of entertaining several offers from competitors requiring the items which should result in a better financial gain from the sale. In areas with large populations and multiple newspaper outlets this process can be very beneficial if time is not a factor.
Depending on the situation individuals also have the opportunity of placing the items for sale at resale stores, garage sales or yard sales. Used servers &used routers sold under these conditions probably won’t net much profit as other methods since interested parties consider these sales to be far more risky and are not guaranteed the products will even function properly. Deciding to sell used computer hardware in this fashion might be a very lengthy process, especially if the products are not in an operational capacity, such as simply sitting in a box with a price tag attached.
Another option that most don’t consider is listing the used servers &used routers on auction house web sites where the seller has the option to allow for bids on the items they offer over a specified amount of time, after which they can elect to sell them to the highest bidder. Sellers also have the option of attaching an established price tag to the item indicating how much a bidder could purchase the product for immediately without having to endure the bidding process. This method of resale can be advantageous, especially if the items are in high demand and short supply. These types of sales can actually net an individual more profit if a bidding war ensues between customers interested in the items.
