The Dell Server Buyback Process
1. Send an Inventory List
Just because your Dell servers are a few years old does not mean they’ve lost their value. Send us an inventory list or a spreadsheet of your Dell servers to start the process. If your business doesn’t have an inventory list ready, we can assess the value of your Dell servers with the following information:
- Dell Model Numbers
- Server Configurations, E.G. CPUs, RAM, Drives, and GPUs
- Date of Purchase and Condition
- Dell service tags (if applicable)
2. Receive Your Value Quote
Within two business days you will receive a quote for your Dell servers. This offer is good for up to one week after the offer. With this quote, we will also assess:
- Project location(s) and logistics details
- Deliverables (such as drives shredded on site, servers palletized, etc)
- Compliance, data security, and policy requirements
3. Accept Your Payment
After accepting the quote, we will set up a time for next-day on-site pickup or arrange to ship your servers. We will issue you a chain of custody document, data destruction certificate and administer your payment according to prior terms. Our payment process includes benefits such as:
- Net-5 Payment via wire, check, or PayPal
- Prepay for established customers
- Total visibility during processing

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.
Trade in your Dell servers before your warranty expires.
The average standard warranty on a new Dell server usually includes a standard 12 months and additional ProSupport for mission critical/onsite can be extended to 36 months. Once the warranty expires, generally most servers’ repair and maintenance costs become far more expensive than purchasing new.
A best practice technology replacement policy for Dell equipment means replacing PowerEdge Tower or Rack servers every 3 to 5 years after the warranties expire. Since servers tend to last up to 5 years on average, selling after the warranty expires and before the 5th year ensures higher resale value and the best use of your equipment within warranty.
On average we observe that the average depreciation value of a Dell server is between 10% to 25% per year depending on the model and components.
We love Dell and we’ll listen to any offer, try us.
Dell makes incredibly reliable hardware, but all good things come to an end. Determining how much longer your server will last can be difficult, however Dell provides excellent diagnosis software such as the OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) to evaluate hardware issues. Most Dell servers have various LED status indicators such as temperature, PCIe, and electrical which will turn amber if there’s a serious issue.
You can always check indicator codes on the official Dell troubleshooting page to determine the severity of the codes for different components (NIC, iDrac, power supply, etc..) and call Dell to determine the costs of repairs, at which point you may consider selling the equipment to buy brand new.
Even if your Dell equipment has reliability, damage or maintenance issues, we encourage you to get in touch with us because 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 Dell servers are worth depends on the model and specifications of the components, which is why we need a bit more information from you before giving you a generous offer.
