Fixed Price Buy Back
Based upon a fair market value of IT Equipment, a negotiated set price is established. Upon receipt and inspection of equipment, a report of any defects is issued. Payment will commence 30 days after receiving a statement of invoice. PartServe absorbs the inventory risk during the sale cycle.


Shared Revenue Sale
Let PartServe take the disposal burden off your shoulders by handling your inventory and verifying its specifications. Product is sorted and tested to verify functionality and specifications are confirmed. If product has value in the marketplace, it will be sold at fair market value and a negotiated percentage of the proceeds will be returned to you upon completion of the sale. If there is no value, then the product is scrapped and disposed of.

The Process

Upon receipt all asset serial numbers are captured to our system, we then sort the equipment into two categories:

  1. 1. Functional - these items will be refurbished and remarketed.
  2. 2. Scrap - these items will be disassembled and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner according to IS014000 standards

Refurbishment: During refurbishment assets are tested, cleaned and packed. All asset tags, passwords, customer labels and data are removed during the refurbishment process to ensure that customer information remains confidential.


Remarketing: Items that have been refurbished are sold. PartServe supplies a brand new warranty with any item sold. We market refurbished items to our extensive database of about 4000 dealers.


Asset tracking: PartServe can provide reports on the following:

  • Units received
  • Units scrapped
  • Units sold
  • Units that are currently available for sale

These reports are most useful when a shared revenue agreement has been reached.


Warehousing: Equipment that has been collected from customers site will be taken to a single, central location in that region. PartServe accepts full responsibility for any loss or damage to equipment that has not yet been paid for.
