Your Company’s Reputation is Safe With Us
Our server buybacks must adhere to strict data security and disposition methods and ensure an ironclad chain of custody. To completely wipe/erase the information from used servers, standard techniques such as the standard DoD triple pass overwrite are used. We adhere to industry specific data erasure standards such as NIST and provide on-site shredding, degaussing, or in-rack erasure. Any standard of data destruction you require, complete with certificate of destruction.
We are R2 certified.
We can dispose of your server in the most environment friendly manner, as well as take extreme precautions for safety. Our processes are 3rd party audited to ensure that we meet certain data security and environmental standards. We’ve also been in business for over two decades as a family owned company, and we have never had a single situation with a data leak or any client have issues regarding their data security. If government institutions and fortune 500 companies can trust us with their data, you can too.
Security first and total teardown
Whatever level of secure transit you need to ship your used servers can be provided. GPS tracking, certified and background checked drivers, you name it. Complete, double-verified chain of custody documentation is available along the way. You can sell your servers to Exit Technologies in complete confidence knowing that we take every precaution to avoid leaking data and preventing any damage during transit.
We can also take care of any cabling, power supplies, racks, batteries, chillers, liquid cooling setups, or other difficult to dismantle infrastructure for you to simplify the process.
Sell your server before it’s too late.
The average warranty on a new server ranges from 1 to 3 years, after which repair and maintenance costs become far more expensive than purchasing new equipment. Therefore, in most cases, it is cheaper to buy new servers than to purchase additional warranty – and don’t worry, you can still sell your Dell servers to Exit Technologies without warranty.
Since servers last on average between 3-5 years on average, implementing an efficient technology replacement policy that sells used servers every 3 to 5 years will allow your organization to purchase bleeding edge equipment with higher discounts.
Selling servers within 5 years of original purchase can provide better returns to ensure you’re able to buy the latest server hardware.
As a general observation, the average depreciation value of a server is 25% per year.
We’ll listen to any offer, try us.
We buy most servers, from popular manufacturers such as Dell, IBM, Cisco to niche equipment from Penguin, Quanta, or ODM. See the full list of servers we purchase
Even if your equipment has reached OS End Of Life (EOL), has reliability, damage or maintenance issues, we encourage you to get in touch with us. You may still be able to sell your server to Exit Technologies or at least some components.
Payment for used servers can be done through check, PayPal or Wire. The amount your used server equipment is worth depends on model numbers and the specifications of the components more so than the brand, which is why we need a bit more information from you before giving you a generous offer.

How can I protect my IT equipment in transit?
Standard packing materials is simply not sufficient to protect your IT assets during the shipping process. We are happy to provide shipping materials for your IT assets and shipping insurance free of charge.
A good rule of thumb is to leave no wiggle room for any parts whatsoever. CPU and RAM trays should be taped together, servers should be packed in form fitting polyurethane foam, and GPUs should have custom foam boxes. For more information consult our IT packing instructions page.
What specific server brands are most valuable?
For value, it's less about the brand of server than it is about the model number and the specs of the components. For example, a barebones Dell poweredge r740 without any components in the chassis is actually less valuable than an HPE dl380 proliant gen9.
Where to sell used IT equipment
Where to sell used IT equipment really depends on exactly how much IT equipment and what type of IT equipment.
When dealing with very small quantities of consumer items like single hard drives, 1 or 2 sticks of ram, used laptop, etc. then direct selling on sites like eBay, Reddit hardware swap, or Facebook marketplace will likely be your best option.
If you're selling enterprise-grade IT equipment or large quantities of consumer product, you probably want to source an IT Asset Disposition company like us. Just fill out our get an offer form below with exactly how much of what you have, and we'll be in touch asap to give you a fair market cash price for your equipment.
