IBM Certified Pre-owned Equipment

Certified IBM Pre-owned Equipment

Solutions for Value Added Resellers

For value added resellers (VARs), utilizing certified IBM pre-owned equipment fulfills a variety of needs for spares or backups, data centers, and testing environments. Arrow maintains a solid legacy relationship with IBM for almost all product lines, which allows us to specialize in IBM pre-owned equipment and other refurbished enterprise equipment. This relationship assures our partners that each remanufactured product is rigorously tested, upgraded as required, and refurbished before being made available for remarketing. From market value consultation to takeout quotes, configurations, shipping and more, our services are designed to help you capture more of your customer’s business.

Typical Engagements:

  • Provide takeout quotes to provide fair market value to customer-owned or leased equipment.
  • Quote refurbished or surplus HW from features, to MES upgrades, to fully configured systems.
  • Create a new/used solution to support a VAR’s budget.
  • Update the IBM Install base (AAS).
  • When IBM cannot provide solutions within the required time frame, Arrow can supply equipment from our stock or from the market.

When “new” isn’t the best option, look to our refurbished enterprise equipment team to help you meet your customer’s total requirements.
