There are costs involved in the logistics, warehousing, data deletion, inventorying, tests, cleaning, sales and, where necessary, repair or disposal. As a non-profit company we have to recover these costs but are not allowed to turn a profit. Depending on the service life and state of the IT hardware and mobile devices to be picked up, there are three possible models for doing business with AfB from a monetary point of view:
The hardware to be picked up has had a very long service life (e.g. 6 years or longer) or is largely defective. That makes it highly unlikely that we will be able to recover our costs at a later sale of the hardware and so we would have to bill you for our services.
The hardware to be picked up has been operational for 4-5 years and is still functional to a large extent: It is likely we can recover our costs from a later sale of the hardware and can offer you a cost-neutral pick-up.
The used hardware to be picked up has been in service for 4 years or less and is functional to a large extent: It is highly likely we will be able to recover our costs at a later sale of the hardware. If a profit is made from the sale, repayment to your company can be arranged or you can choose to donate those proceeds to our non-profit enterprise.
Please bear in mind that these are only estimates. Please contact our sales department with respect to your hardware for a more precise statement concerning the appropriate business model for your individual case.
We also pick up hardware from countries where we have no location.
