Basically, you have three main options with the old networking equipment you no longer use:
Which one is the best option for your old networking It depends on several key factors:
Whether it's a network switch, a router, or other types of networking equipment, there are viable ways to sell your used networking equipment and make extra cash from it.
While your options may vary depending on the type of equipment, your location, or other factors, basically, you have three major options in selling your old netowrking equipment:
Whether it's a network switch or other types of network equipment: gateway, hub, router, and so on, you can basically sell your network equipment in just a few simple steps:
Step 1: Evaluate the condition
Evaluate the condition of the network equipment, both in terms of physical condition (check for any defects) and performance. Check whether the network equipment is still working properly. Be honest, and list any defects and imperfections you've found.
Step 2: Know your equipment
If you've confirmed that the network equipment is working properly, then the next step is to identify the equipment's exact model to determine its value.
If the equipment has a visible brand/model name or serial number on it, then this process should be fairly easy.
Step 3: Taking pictures
Take photos of your network switch or other types of equipment, so you can show them to prospective buyers.
Make sure you capture the equipment's serial number and model name (if it's visible on the product). It's also important, to be honest: if there are any defects on the product, make sure it's captured in the photos.
Step 4: Finding buyers
Find prospective buyers, whether listing your product on classified sites, peer-to-peer marketplaces, or contacting an ITAD specialist company like Big Data Supply Inc.
Step 5: Packaging and shipping
Once you've found a buyer, then what's left is to package and ship the network switch or other types of network equipment you are selling to the buyer. Some ITAD companies may also offer to pick up your goods on your premises, especially if you are selling in bulk.
