Datacom's asset recovery service buys back your IT assets. Whether it’s because of a planned refresh cycle or a technology upgrade, you may no longer need some of your IT assets.

Trade in the IT assets that are either surplus to your needs or being replaced by new equipment (depending on the asset and its age) and we’ll provide all of the collection and compliant data-wiping services along with ISO-certified data erasure certificates.

The process is quick and easy. Email a list of your assets and we can get you a no-obligation quote.
