    Cool Dell Refurb Server Supplier Required

    I've just founf out that our current Dell Refurb Server supplier is unable to provide any form of pre-sales advice on any of the hardware they sell and they require the purchaser to know about the equipment that they have sat in their own warehouse so if you buy a server that doesn't do what they said it would do then it's your own fault!

    We used to buy from Dell directly but their pre-sales support team are not experts on servers and the last time we purchased a Dell server from them they said it would do something and it turns out it most definitely does not and after an internal investigation they basically said, whoops! sorry we made an error. Now we have to spend more money to fix their mistake!


    So, we're looking for a Dell Refurb Server reseller that can supply us with Servers (as and when we need them) with a 3yr next business day warranty. If you know of such a company (or are such a company) then please post details below and we'll be in touch.

    Excellent news!

    I was just checking out the hard disks in the servers we just got from our current supplier and each hard disk is only being held in to the caddy with a single screw and not four like they should be so next time we'll have to look elsewhere so I've PM'd you my email address so we can swap details.

    Highly Recommend @ICTDirect_Dave for his refurbished kit and his disks have 4 screws in them in the HP ones I've had

    We certainly do send out caddies with the full four screws! We're not tight!
