Manufacturer Asset Recovery, Trade-In, and Leasing Programs

Several manufacturers offer equipment asset recovery or end-of-life management programs, generally for corporate clients. In addition, some manufacturers offer trade-in programs that provide a rebate on new personal computers for returning your used PC. Purchasers who don't want the responsibility of dealing with end-of-life equipment, but still prefer to use the most up-to-date products, should consider leasing instead of purchasing. This option allows them to return old equipment to the vendor for upgrades or credits toward future purchases. Leasing also eliminates consumer responsibilities for proper product disposal or management because they do not own the equipment. Another option involves selecting a dealer, retailer, or manufacturer that operates a product take-back program and allows consumers to return old equipment when purchasing new products or system upgrades. Please check specific program details on the company's website.
