Small- to medium-sized businesses often need to be mindful of budgetary constraints and keep their operating costs down in any way they can. Yet, while it may be tempting to turn to “quick and easy” services for IT asset disposition (ITAD), this isn’t the area to cut corners. There are risks involved with handing your old electronics over to just anyone. The average junk removal company doesn’t have the credentials needed to provide trustworthy data destruction services, so your sensitive data could wind up in the wrong hands.
Fortunately, Quantum now has ITAD solutions that are quick and easy but still provide the certified, reliable, and trustworthy services we provide our enterprise clients. Here’s everything you need to know about ITAD Express for small and medium businesses.
What Is ITAD Express?
ITAD express is an asset disposition service designed for small and medium organizations seeking a quick and easy way to dispose of their old IT gear. The process takes only a matter of days from your initial request and ensures you get the superior customer service and attention to detail Quantum offers all our customers. As Canada’s largest and most vertically integrated R2 certified ITAD provider and e-waste recycler, we will:
- Reuse as much equipment as possible and recycle what we cannot reuse to minimize your company’s carbon footprint
- Ensure the data on all of your devices is completely destroyed through erasure or physical destruction
- Add value through low-cost, convenient solutions and straightforward reporting
What Are the Service Options?
Quantum offers four basic tiers for companies seeking ITAD express services:
Free of charge, Quantum’s truck picks up your pile or pallets of old IT gear from your place of business. Equipment will be processed in accordance with the globally recognized R2 recycling standard. Pickups are scheduled within 24 to 48 hours of your initial request, typically for a date three to five days out. You can expect to receive certificates of recycling for your devices within five to ten business days. This option is available for most organizations with 25 or more high-grade IT assets, such as laptops, desktops, or servers that can be refurbished and resold.
For most companies with fewer than 25 items or organizations with special requirements for handling and logistics, Quantum offers pickup services for a small fee. Services start at $149 and are scheduled within 24 hours of quote acceptance.
If you need additional peace of mind, we offer physical data destruction services (hard drive shredding). This service includes an itemized Data Security Certificate listing the serial number of each destroyed hard drive, solid state drive, or tape. All equipment will be processed in accordance with the globally recognized R2 recycling standard. Services start at $295.
For organizations with the most stringent data security requirements, Quantum’s shred truck can serialize and shred hard drives, SSDs, and tapes at your location. Additional equipment can be picked up from your place of business and will be processed in accordance with R2 recycling standards. This service starts at $495.
No matter your business’s size, Quantum has ITAD and e-waste recycling services to meet your unique needs. Contact our team to see how we can help process your old equipment sustainably and affordably.
