Trade It Up!

Safely and Securely Trade Your Old Toughbook and Toughpad for New Tech

Rugged Depot has a great, easy to use, equipment trade-in program specifically designed to make life easier for business departments like yours.

Now you can safely and securely ensure the destruction of data on your existing equipment, while trading it in to save money on new equipment purchases.

Rugged Program

Rugged Depot’s program means your department can follow the proper disposition, removal and recycling or remarketing of IT equipment assets, while ensuring compliance with local and national data security and environmental regulations.

We provide current fair market value for your old IT equipment that you can apply to purchases of new mobile rugged computing and services solutions from Rugged Depot that are designed specifically to meet your department’s current needs.

Rugged Depot’s secure disposition and reduced costs mean you’ll get more bang for your buck when allocating scarce budget resources! Our program is perfect for departments that must meet data security or Asset Management requirements for the decommissioning and disposition of excess or outdated IT assets, or departments unable or precluded from accepting direct rebates on new equipment purchases.

Benefits

  • Nationwide assistance with the proper disposition, removal and recycling or remarketing of assets, while ensuring compliance to local and national data security and environmental regulations.
  • Logistics and de-installation – we can manage the process on your behalf, even down to complete site clearance including data center decommissioning!
  • Safe, secure, and complete destruction of all data on storage media included with your trade-in equipment.
  • Reduced processing costs associated with asset decommissioning, disposition, and disposal.
  • Direct credit towards the purchase of new or refurbished mobile computing solutions and services from Rugged Depot.
  • Augmented funding resources for additional mobile computing solutions or service purchases.
  • Complimentary inventory service of all trade-in equipment, with only nominal processing fees for non-working equipment.

Detailed Audit, Inventory, and Valuation of Trade-In Equipment

Rugged Depot will perform a detailed audit and inventory of your equipment to identify all program eligible non-damaged working equipment. We’ll further grade and classify these working products and assign a value.

Non-working or non-salable inventory will be assessed for possible value as parts, salvage, or reuse and we may, at our discretion, renegotiate the value or return any non-working equipment at the customer’s expense.

At the end of the inventory and auditing process you’ll receive a detailed accounting and value for all of your trade-in equipment. You’ll know exactly how much you can save on your acquisition of new mobile rugged computing and services solutions designed to meet your department’s specific needs!
