Only buy products from companies you know you can trust. Unfortunately, not all used equipment is created equal. So make sure that you have your reseller bench test and certify your refurbished items before you buy them.

In a recent interview, Modern Enterprise Solutions’ Co-Founder shares tips on how businesses can get the most out of their used Cisco equipment.
“Buying used networking equipment from reputable brands like Cisco is a great way to meet your business needs without spending a fortune. However, there are a few things to keep in mind so that you get the best used equipment for your money,” said Steven Elia.
“Only buy products from companies you know you can trust. Unfortunately, not all used equipment is created equal. So make sure that you have your reseller bench test and certify your refurbished items before you buy them. Sellers who are not transparent about their testing and the quality of their products should be avoided. They should be able to give you all the details you need about their items, so if they are hesitant to give that to you, it’s not a good sign,” he continued.
When asked for more tips, Steven Elia replied:
“You should also watch out and be careful about the information you give out to websites. If your vendor has a disorganized website that looks like it hasn’t been maintained, you should be wary of giving your private information. Sites that aren’t properly maintained are easy targets for identity theft.”
“Another thing that is helpful to know is the company’s return policy in case you have any issue with the products. You can also check if there’s a warranty program. Good companies usually offer a warranty,” said Steven Elia.
When asked for one last tip on making the most of buying used equipment, Elia answered:
“One last tip is to see if there are replacement parts available for certain devices. Sometimes just one part going haywire will ruin the efficiency of the whole device, so you always want to make sure that you can get replacement parts if something goes wrong.”
