Promoting sustainability & inclusion with IT sale

At AfB, you combine your IT refinancing with social-ecological commitment. As a inclusion company, we employ more than 650 people, 45 % of whom are disabled. By remarketing refurbished notebooks, smartphones and other devices, we save resources compared to the production of new IT equipment. We currently achieve a remarketing rate of 54 % and more.

5 tips for the value retention of your hardware

  • Carefully collect and store. You are welcome to use our collection and transport containers from the moment the equipment is dismantled by your employees to avoid damage.

  • Do not apply engravings or stickers on the devices that cannot be removed cleanly.

  • IT devices lose value every month. It is not worth storing the devices.

  • Remove activation locks on mobile devices.

  • We offer your employees the possibility to buy their work-notebook, etc. privately via AfB. With this knowledge, many people handle their equipment more carefully.

Selling used hardware – our conditions

You can either provide us detailed information about your devices in advance or we will make you an all-inclusive offer without knowledge of this data, in which we only differentiate e.g. by CPU generation, hard disk type and display size. In each variant a forecast over several quarters is possible in relation to the delivery date.

Our expenses for logistics and data destruction will be offset. Depending on your wishes, we deduct these costs directly from the purchase price or charge them separately.

You do not need purchase prices, but you do not want to have costs? This is in many cases possible - therefore we need information about collection points, quantities and device configurations in advance.

Contact us. We are happy to advise you.

We will prepare an individual offer for you.
