System Resale Refurbishment Process


Breaking down each step in detail


Visual Inspection

All of our products are opened and visually inspected for signs of physical damage, blown capacitors, damaged components and signs of overheating.


Replacement of Damaged Components

The product is sent to our testing lab. Our technicians replace any blown or suspected faulty components such as capacitors, relays and cooling fans that were found faulty during visual inspection.


Password Removal and Factory Reset

After testing, products are returned to their Factory Default settings and any passwords and/or configuration is removed. This ensures that the product is as good as the day you bought it.


Secure Packaging

Unlike many resellers, we do not skimp on the packaging of our products.  All products are securely packaged in anti-static bags, anti-static bubble wrap, anti-static packing peanuts and double-walled boxes(depending on the weight of the item).  This ensures that your sensitive equipment will survive nearly any mishaps along its destination to you.



All of the equipment here at System Resale is thoroughly cleaned of all dust and debris using compressed air and electronic component cleaners.


Diagnostic Testing

All products undergo a rigorous diagnostic test. Each port, module or slot is individually tested under heavy traffic conditions to ensure proper working order.


Final Inspection

The product undergoes a final inspection where any cosmetic defects are addressed. At this stage, when deemed necessary, the chassis may be repainted with the original manufacturer’s colour of paint.

Hardware Warrenty

All of our Refurbished products carry a full 90-day hardware warranty.
