Our decommissioning process

Logistics planning

Firstly, we will discuss your data centre in detail, for instance building access, location, and the exact equipment that you would like to remove (brand, age, model numbers, photographs). Our experts can then begin the decommissioning service. We will also arrange any specialist measures if required, such as raising the floor access or using stair climbers in order to remove large items like server racks.

Planning downtime

If system downtime is required for your decommissioning project, we will help your organisation to effectively power down and then get operations running again as quickly as possible. We can provide any risk assessments or methods needed.

Professional removals

We are skilled at removing electrical connections including AC and DC power, networking, and temporary power supplies, and always safely disconnect all data centre hardware. If contractors are required to remove complicated batteries or systems, we can also arrange this for you.

Excellent data protection

Data protection is the most important part of any decommissioning project. We guarantee the protection of client data at every step of the process with our secure chain of transport custody, data erasure and documentation in order to meet the latest GDPR regulations. When you work with Techbuyer, every one of your decommissioned IT parts are registered and tracked, 100% of data is securely erased using Blancco and White Canyon software, and every IT asset is either reused or ethically recycled.

Industry-leading security

Techbuyer was the fastest company to achieve the ADISA (Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance) accreditation; the highest ITAD security standard in the country. This is the highest security standard for IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) organisations, who are responsible for removing and securely processing used IT hardware. 

ADISA is included within the National Cyber Security Centre’s guide to IT asset disposal, meaning it is considered best practice in the UK, and involves regular audits to ensure we’re always upholding the highest standards. We’re proud to be an ADISA accredited company and will always process your IT assets safely and confidentially.

Manage your entire IT life cycle

Once you have decommissioned your IT equipment, the story doesn’t end there. We know that data centre equipment needs upgrading, repairing and eventually replacing as the years go by and that IT requirements change. That’s why our team of IT specialists are well trained in advising on the best solutions for your business. We provide a wide range of configurations, upgrades, and replacements to maximise the efficiency and uptime of your organisation.

Upgrade existing IT equipment

Rather than replacing your entire system for a performance boost, why not carry out component upgrades? We provide new and refurbished options, all with a three year warranty.

Quality IT repairs

We can fix your existing IT equipment when repairs are needed. From CPU repairs to fixing damaged servers, our team have years of experience getting technology working as good as new.

Buy new or refurbished IT equipment

We stock over £10 million worth of IT hardware, with our refurbished solutions performing as well as new. Every IT system and component we sell comes with a three year warranty for complete peace of mind.

Rent IT hardware

Our flexible IT rentals service enables you to choose IT hardware for short-term or long-term contracts. You can also choose the payment frequency that suits your business best.
