IT Equipment Liquidation and Decommissioning

Closing an office is a big job. There are cubicles to dismantle, files to sort, desks to break down, and electronics to unwire and properly dispose of. Office equipment removal and sorting through office technology is a tricky task. It takes knowledge of local disposal laws, and a keen eye for restoration potential to determine which pieces should be recycled, and which might have a few years left in them.

Benefits to Calling Experts in IT Equipment Removal

Clearing an office of IT equipment can be a daunting task. Aside from the overwhelming nature of the job, there are many benefits to calling a professional IT equipment decommissioning and office equipment removal company, such as:</>

  • 1 Disposal Guidelines

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency, twenty-five U.S. states have laws about technology disposal, especially regarding cathode ray tubes. Environment Canada has similar expectations. Michaels Global Trading is familiar with laws and regulations across North America, ensuring your company isn’t hit with any liability suits or fines regarding technology disposal.

  • 2 Attention to Detail

    Michaels Global Trading is a professional IT equipment disposal company. We pride ourselves on the three C’s, being careful, clean, and cautious. Our goal is always to leave your worksite immaculate. Whether we are emptying the entire site of furnishings, equipment, and debris, or removing only specified items, our attention to detail sets us apart from our competitors.

  • 3 Knowledge of Equipment

    Michaels’ experienced team is always watching the digital sector for new information on office equipment and upgrades. Not only do we familiarize ourselves with what each piece of technology does, but how long they last, and whether they are worth refurbishing.

Working with a professional for IT equipment disposal takes the stress away from your management team, allowing you to focus on big picture items while we take out the trash.

Reasons for IT Equipment Disposal

There are many reasons a company may require a professional IT Equipment removal and disposal service. At Michaels Global Trading, it’s not our job to ask why you’re downsizing, but it is our job to ensure your IT disposal goes smoothly and meets local laws for recycling. Our IT clients request our equipment disposal services for many reasons, including:

  • 1 Outdated/Obsolete Equipment

    IT Equipment has an expiration date, like most other items. Depending on the type of equipment, it may live longer than others. A LAN, for example, may last up to 15-years, while a typical PC will last only 5-8 years. If your equipment has become outdated and obsolete, we can help properly dispose of it, so you have the space to update your technology.

  • 2 Bankruptcy

    Sometimes a Michaels Global Trading client must liquidate IT assets due to bankruptcy. Our team specializes in asset liquidation and can help you get the most out of your investment.

  • 3 Relocation

    Moving offices and unsure if everything is worth moving? Michaels will help you sort through your technology and dispose of outdated IT equipment quickly and efficiently.

  • 4 Downsizing

    Less is more, and many offices across North America are shifting gears into a minimalist setting. If your office is downsizing, we will remove unwanted IT equipment, and ensure it is properly disposed of.

  • 5 Company Mergers

    Company mergers mean IT equipment is coming together from two separate businesses. If you have more than you need it makes sense to dispose of unnecessary items. This is where Michael’s Global Trading can help.

  • 6 Equipment Change

    Has your company partnered with a brand exclusively? Michaels will sort through the off-branded IT equipment and get it out of your hair.

Whatever the reason for your change of location you can count on Michaels Global Trading to help with the heavy lifting.

IT Equipment Liquidation Services

Looking to turn your loss into a gain? Michaels Global Trading can help you make one person’s junk another’s treasure through our IT equipment liquidation services. Many devices in the tech world have a short life span, and these seem to reduce with each new model. While you could recycle many of the computers and equipment in your office, there are businesses and individuals who would buy those unusable machines for parts, or resale.

The team at Michaels Global Trading will help you evaluate the worth of your unwanted technology and find buyers. Whether you are looking to earn back money toward upgraded technology, or you are liquidating due to bankruptcy, our team offers quick, fair, and private services. IT Equipment is costly, especially in bulk. Our goal is to ensure you don’t miss any opportunities to earn back the money you’ve spent on your business investments.

Marlon and his team were on time and ready to work. Marlon and his team provided decommissioning and relocation service. Decommissioning included destruction of old Hard Drives, Server removal, De-cabling, Inventory and general cleanup. Team is professional, cooperative, and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs several times. They worked independently and left our premises at spotless condition. During relocation, they made sure we did not have to worry about our possessions on both sides - loading and unloading. Thank you for the excellent customer service and quality!

They were on time, very reasonably priced, polite, quiet (we were working downstairs while they were upstairs) and efficient. He had a large team working and finished the job in about 4 hours. Would highly recommend. Thanks MGT!

Frequently Asked Questions

1What is IT Equipment Disposal?

This process involves proper handling, data destruction, recycling, and remarketing of the equipment, complying with environmental and data security regulations.

2How long will it take you to pack my IT equipment?

Michaels Global Trading provides specialized expertise for packing your IT equipment promptly and securely, ensuring that it is removed within your specified timeframe. Contact our decommissioning team for a cost estimate and a projected timeline.

3Do I need insurance for my office move?

IT equipment decommissioning service providers strongly recommend obtaining insurance for office moves, particularly when IT equipment is involved. This is because accidents may occur during the move, and having insurance can help safeguard the equipment and compensate for any potential damages. It’s always better to err on the side of caution and take steps to protect valuable assets.

4How do you decommission an IT platform?

Decommissioning an IT platform involves a series of steps, including data destruction, inventory management, and environmentally-friendly disposal of equipment. At Michael’s Global Trading, we offer a comprehensive IT equipment removal service that ensures regulatory compliance and data security while maximizing asset recovery value. Contact us to learn more.

5How to Plan for IT Equipment Decommissioning?

When planning for the decommissioning of IT equipment, the first step is to identify which equipment requires decommissioning and choose the best disposal or resale method. It is crucial to guarantee that all data is securely wiped and adhere to the relevant company and local regulations. Collaborating with an IT asset disposition service provider such as Michaels Global Trading can be beneficial in obtaining secure and responsible IT equipment decommissioning services.

This service provides a range of benefits, including secure data destruction, asset recovery, and environmentally friendly disposal methods. Michaels Global Trading ensures that your devices are recycled and reused responsibly, minimizing environmental harm and promoting sustainability.

7How do I safely wipe data from my IT equipment before removal?

Currently, Michaels Global Trading doesn’t offer data destruction services, although we are happy to help you dispose of other types of e-waste. We recommend removing and destroying your hard drive directly or working with a certified data destruction company. This ensures all sensitive files are removed from IT equipment before it is resold.

8How do large companies recycle electronics?

Many large businesses partner with recycling experts to ensure all electronics are properly disposed of. Depending on the number of electronics decommissioned on a regular basis, the recycling specialist may leave a bin on-site at the business to be filled and picked up. In cases of large-scale electronics recycling, such as the downsizing or closing of a business, decommissioning professionals like Michaels Global Trading will come to your business, assess individual electronic components, and deliver unusable items to the proper recycling facilities.

9How can our business dispose of electronics responsibly?

In North America there are strict guidelines on the disposal of e-waste, especially batteries, cathode ray tubes and wiring. Fortunately, up to 97% of the electronics in your business can be recycled, minimizing your carbon footprint.
