The start of the summer term means it’s the home straight to the summer holidays. For many education settings, the holidays are a time when maintenance and upgrades take place.
If you’re planning to upgrade your computers to provide students with access to high-quality machines, get in touch. We can work with you to source and deliver high-quality, fit-for-purpose refurbished computers during the summer break.
Why choose refurbished IT
Since 1997, we have been providing high-quality, refurbished IT hardware from Apple, Dell, HP and Lenovo to schools and universities. Our aim is to support and drive a circular economy by providing refurbished machines at prices up to 40% lower than new.
Switching to refurbished IT makes sound commercial and environmental sense. At a time when budgets are continually being stretched, a 40% saving could make a significant difference. Can you afford not to explore a cost saving like this?
Having passed our stringent Q20 checklist of cosmetic and physical checks, diagnostics software tests BIOS checks and updates, each machine includes a 12-month warranty. This matches the warranty you’d receive when buying new.
High-quality, high-performance machines
There is a myth that everyone needs the latest computer. And it’s just that, a myth.
For most educational settings, and in fact most businesses, new machines are over spec’d. Which means they’re also over-priced for the function they need to perform. Our technical experts can source high-quality, high-performance machines that are fit-for-purpose and won’t break the bank.
Because there is no planet B
Even if your budgets aren’t stretched, the cost to the planet of upgrading and replacing ICT suites with new is too great to be ignored. Switching to a sustainable IT strategy will make a significant positive impact on the environment by reducing e-waste, carbon emissions, landfill, and the drain on the earth’s precious and non-renewable resources.
IT Asset Disposal (ITAD)
Renewed offer a complete IT replacement service to make the switch to refurbished IT simple and stress-free.
We can collect your existing equipment and, following an audit, we will cleanse the assets and provide a value for you. This will likely reduce your overall upgrade costs. All assets are wiped following strict protocols and ether resold, recycled, or destroyed as a last resort, in line with WEEE regulations.
Partnering with Renewed for your refurbished IT upgrades
Having worked with educational settings across the UK for 25 years, our team can support you in the transition to a sustainable IT strategy.
In addition to sourcing and supplying refurbished IT, we can also provide rollout, storage, multi-drop delivery, next business day delivery / collection, rebate and credit facilities, and hard drive imaging. All designed to provide you with a straightforward alternative to buying new.
Our impact for Education customers
Inspiration Trust is responsible for IT procurement across all 14 academies in East Anglia. The Trust purchased 200 Grade A refurbished desktops and laptops from Renewed, realising a saving of £50,000.
Birkenhead Sixth Form College
Investment within the college focused on developing an excellent learning facility for all students, with a strong focus on the use of technology and mobile learning. Buying 80 refurbished Dell desktops saved them over £16,000.
