Where Does The Equipment Come From?

All 2NDGEAR equipment comes from reliable sources like computer manufacturers (Microsoft, Dell, HP, etc), Fortune 500 companies, and other reputable wholesalers. 

Via these sources we acquire OEM unsold inventory, returned unopened items (we relabel these “factory recertified”) and products that have come to the end of their leasing cycle (off-lease equipment).

What Happens To The Data On The Machines?

Any system entering our tech center goes through a stringent inspection process. We begin with a thorough test of the devices current functionality and ensure the unit functions up to our standards. If the unit does not meet our standards, it is marked as defective and destroyed and recycled up to Department of Defense and ISO 9001:2008 standards.

Machines that pass the initial inspection will continue on to get wiped clean, both inside and out. All data will be wiped by a certified technician and any cosmetic defects will be touched up or repaired. These machines will look and work like new upon purchase and no remnants of the old data or information will available.
