Refurbished Phone Systems

Many companies make a point of buying refurbished phone systems rather than new ones, and they're happy to do it. This is because they are able to save hundreds or even thousands of dollars off the regular price of comparable, new phone systems. It's also because the systems they purchase look and function just as well as new.

One common misperception about refurbished phone equipment is that it these systems are old and obsolete. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, if you check any leading phone reseller website, you'll most likely find many new, top-of-the-line models for sale. This is because businesses are growing and changing at a faster pace than ever, and sometimes companies quickly outgrow even brand-new, state-of-the-art phone systems.

Standards for Refurbished Phones

The good fortune of these fast-growing companies is yours as well, for you can save up to 70% off what they paid for these systems when they were new. Price, however, isn't the only factor. Other variables come into play, particularly on the dealer's end. A good dealer will provide you with great products at fair prices. A bad one will rip you off, no matter how little you may have paid, by delivering poorly refurbished equipment and bad service.

The industry standard for refurbishing phone equipment is to make any necessary repairs, test the system to make sure everything works perfectly, and thoroughly clean and recondition all system components to make them look like new. The system should also be properly packaged as if it were a new product, complete with necessary cords and start-up guides. Furthermore, a one-year warranty seems to be the standard among refurbishers, as is free technical support.
