    selling old hardware

    Hi everybody

    We are having our interactive whiteboards and projectors replaced in the Feb half term and I am wondering about how to dispose of the old stuff.

    I know there are companies that will collect but does anyone know if there is a resale value on these items?

    We have Series 5 Smartboards which are almost 9 years old but still function, and the projectors are NEC NP215ís - these are just over 3 years old. We also have some NEC VT37 projectors leftover from a previous upgrade - these are about 9 years old.

    I have looked on eBay and there are some on there - donít know how they sell though.

    Has anyone else tried this route?

    Thanks

    CJ

    Try speaking to @Millgate. They will pay for stuff that has value.

    Thanks

    Yes, we can sometimes buy old kit (depending on what it is). Unfortunately though, this doesn't really have any value.

    I'd recommend getting someone to dispose of it FOC for you. I can arrange this if you wish?

    I'll ask around for you but with these things being so cheap to buy new, they aren't likely to have any resale value

    It's generally high HP & Cisco kit that holds it's value.

    To buy new a Netgear WNDAP350 is around the £250-300 mark (was when we bought the kit.)

    We've done quite well selling job lots on eBay. PITA to organise and do though.

    We started selling stuff on ebay, old laptops, PC's, duff batteries ( yes!! DUFF! ) , mobile phones, DVRs , TV. Etc..

    Started just before Christmas and raised £650, seller restrictions make it a pain at the moment as the high value stuff we can only sell one a month. But I think we could generate 2K on stuff we have stored for ages.


    Takes a bit of time to do but worth it.

    I heard somewhere that you need to take a bit of care selling school equipment because VAT was not put on the original sale. That said, I doubt there would be a problem with small quantities.

    No it's not that VAT wasn't put on the original sale, it's a case of if you are VAT registered and claimed the VAT back if you then sell the equipment on you have to charge VAT on the re-sale value and pay that back to the taxman.

    @Millgate Would you be interested in any Promethean boards? All under 5 years old?

    The best thing to do is to drop me an email with as much info as possible and I can ask around for you
