Bechtle Remarketing – efficient hardware life cycle management.
The demands put on today’s hardware are always increasing. Big data in particular requires enormous CPU and memory performance. But usually the hardware is in dire need of upgrading before the depreciation period has ever lapsed. Businesses lose a lot of money, and the administration costs also skyrocket because the hardware has to be uninstalled and properly disposed of.
The answer: Bechtle Remarketing.
Bechtle can manage the complete life cycle of your hardware. This includes data erasure and environmentally responsible disposal of the hardware.
Our service is subdivided into five stages:
- Individual consultation and strategy devised by Bechtle
- Acquisition of your used equipment
- Dismantling and transport of your hardware by Bechtle
- Permanent, irreversible data erasure in Bechtle’s secure Remarketing Centre
- Remarketing of tested hardware
Benefits for you:
- Losses due to depreciation recovered
- 100% data protection
- Bechtle assumes responsibility for your hardware
- Professional collection and disposal, incl. recycling
- Remarketing of hardware through Bechtle
Bechtle Remarketing’s life cycle concept has four distinct objectives that reflect those of the German Waste Management Act (KrWG Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz):
- Re-use as a functional device
- Re-use as functional components
- Recycling of raw materials (e.g. plastics and metals)
- Professional disposal in compliance with applicable regulations
Bechtle Remarketing has over 5,300 m² of warehousing space at two different locations (Wesel and Bocholt) dedicated to the remarketing of used hardware. Up to 10,000 devices can be processed at our dedicated facilities per week and there is room to store over 200,000 devices.
The erasure of data and refurbishing of the hardware is carried out in Bechtle Remarketing’s high-surveillance facilities. We have over 500 client data erasure stations and 120 separate HDD erasure stations for simultaneous erasure of storage media, as well as six server units for wiping storage and hard drives. Depending on the individual hard drive capacities, we can manage up to 2,000 erasures per day.

Not only do you get individual consultation for the acquisition of your used IT equipment, we take care of the logistics, the secure data erasure and the remarketing of your used equipment.
