    Where to buy old computers ; salvaged stock

    Hi Guys.

    I want to open a chapter to Digital Addiction where I can buy companies old PC's and resell them and damaged goods and things that are salvaged by insurance companies.

    Which companies could I go to that act as a link between the organisations and insurance companies, and myself (the buyer), or how would I approach the insurance companies about this.

    Regards

    Itai

    I think there is a huge gap in the market here Eitai. I personally know of a few places who have 1 or 2 or 30 PC's, monitors, pc equipment etc lying around. One day someone wakes up and says we should do something with this... Some never do, others donate to charity ( I have just had 11 PC's donated to a charity in this manner) some turf into the trash can because by that time nobody can remember what was wrong with the PC to begin with.

    I agree with Debbie. There has to be a market for this. Unfortunately I'm more of a broken printer generator than broken/retired PC's. Getting PC's revived is more cost effective than trying to do the same with printers.

    But they've got to be out there. A case of spreading the word and a little patience, perhaps.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Well to start, where do I go to advertise ... and initially I want to target smaller businesses so need to advertise where they see ... I can't afford to target corporates yet :P

    If you could forward my details to those few places that you know or forward me their details, I'd really appreciate it

    Well anything is good ... I'll see what I can sell it for, and then pay you 50% of that ... how does that sound

    Given the kind of values we might be talking about, the cost of shipping to Gauteng might be an issue.

    If you get it working in Gauteng, we could talk about an agency in Durban
