Solutions

With proven solutions, we manage your networking hardware in a superior and efficient manner. Our highly skilled team of technicians and logistics managers handle extensive stock. Together with our senior account managers, we are ready to assist you in every way involving IT hardware equipment.

All equipment is comprehensively tested, handled with respect to the environment, and guaranteed with lifetime warranty!

With many years’ of experience in the IT industry, we help you to understand how hardware refurbishment works and why purchasing pre-owned hardware is a good solution.

Benefits of using
refurbished network equipment

You may find yourself confused by the term "refurbished network equipment,"
especially when trying to understand possible benefits of refurbishment:

"Is new not always better?"
"Does not buying used equipment take longer and involve quite a hassle?"
"Is it at all legal?"
"What are the risks associated with this solution?"
"Can I purchase OEM support on used hardware?"

What is refurbishment?

Luckily, these questions can be answered easily. With more than 15 years of experience in the IT industry, we are here to help you understand what aspects matter when you consider buying switches, routers or other pre-owned network equipment, and why purchasing refurbished ones will be a better solution.

At GHS, pre-owned IT equipment is restored to their original condition and performance. We follow very strict quality guidelines. Through our thorough reception and testing process, all data are destroyed. The hardware is checked and upgraded to the state of the art. Eventually, these restored items are cleaned, re-packaged and prepared like new products ready for delivery to you.

Benefits of using refurbished network equipment

Many times, a proven asset with a solid record is more economical and a correct fit. Pre-owned, refurbished equipment therefore may not only be a cost-effective alternative in the short-term, but also a secure long-term solution. Failure rates are reduced significantly because the equipment has already been used and tested. You can get reassured by receiving lifetime warranty for refurbished equipment and you are assisted by our technical support.

Purchasing pre-owned equipment is a perfect solution when you need end-of-life equipment that is not any longer under production. There is a great chance that we still cater for your very extraordinary desires. How? We hold extensive stock of more than 50.000 items in our warehouses. We are also your partner in spare parts management: we can ensure that you get essential spare parts so that your business operations can continue without any risk.

Performance

Reduced prices do not mean reduced performance. Each unit undergoes a strict and comprehensive re-manufacturing and testing process. All items are cleaned and packaged like new ones. Pre-owned equipment is already proven and it is a certain fit. Our refurbished equipment meets all OEM specifications.

Reliability

Since the equipment has been used and tested, failure rates are significantly reduced. Trust and integrity: our #1 aspect when we do business. We always offer you a very quick solution which is personalized to your needs, and which exceeds your expectations.

Availability

Our extensive stock enables the reduction of lead times to delivery of new, pre-owned products and even for end-of-life equipment. Our extensive network and long-lasting relations enable us to find even scarce equipment and consign them to the customer within a short time frame.

Cost-effectiveness

You can save up to 90% off the list price of an equivalent, new equipment.
Furthermore, pre-owned equipment retains its value for a longer period than a new one.

Warranty

When purchasing refurbished assets, there is no need to compromise on warranty. We offer lifetime warranty on our new and refurbished products.

Sustainability

Electronic waste is becoming one of the fastest growing streams of waste. Re-using network equipment reduces e-waste: good for business, good for the environment.

"Is new not always better?"
"Does not buying used equipment take longer and involve quite a hassle?"
"Is it at all legal?"
"What are the risks associated with this solution?"
"Can I purchase OEM support on used hardware?"

What is refurbishment?

Luckily, these questions can be answered easily. With more than 15 years of experience in the IT industry, we are here to help you understand what aspects matter when you consider buying switches, routers or other pre-owned network equipment, and why purchasing refurbished ones will be a better solution.

At GHS, pre-owned IT equipment is restored to their original condition and performance. We follow very strict quality guidelines. Through our thorough reception and testing process, all data are destroyed. The hardware is checked and upgraded to the state of the art. Eventually, these restored items are cleaned, re-packaged and prepared like new products ready for delivery to you.

Benefits of using refurbished network equipment

Many times, a proven asset with a solid record is more economical and a correct fit. Pre-owned, refurbished equipment therefore may not only be a cost-effective alternative in the short-term, but also a secure long-term solution. Failure rates are reduced significantly because the equipment has already been used and tested.

We strive to be an outstanding business partner for our global customer base and we aim to exceed the expectations of our customers repeatedly.

History

Global Hardware Solutions was founded by Roger van Norden (sales director); at the start in 1999, the company grew rapidly – both in the Netherlands as well internationally. Jeroen van der Toorn (managing director) joined GHS in 2009. In 2012 GHS B.V. moved to a new office and warehouse. GHS is operational under one name, one management and it has been located in Haarlem for more than 17 years. GHS business changed from traditional brokerage to a complete business that provides services and solutions around the network hardware. In 2014, jointly with Maciej Jakimiec, GHS started Global Hardware Solutions in Torun (PL) in order to cover Poland and the central, eastern European and Baltic market. With more than 30 young, enthusiastic and involved people, we serve thousands of customers in more than 40 countries.

Sustainability

The core of our business is built on solutions that reduce global e-waste and level of carbon footprint. Reusing assets is the highest level of recycling. We reduce logistic resources by optimum planning and with energy-efficient machines and vehicles.
