ACT Logistics is trusted by more than 260 public and independent schools across the country? We asked “why”? Here are the most common responses.
“YOU DON’T JUST CHERRY PICK – YOU’RE A REAL PARTNER”
Almost every school has Apple devices and computers under 4 years old. Those are the prized assets to buy. And some of our peers do just that, taking only the best and leaving you with the environmental mess created by assets that have no residual value.
We take our product stewardship role very seriously, so we’re happy to acquire technology at any age. It might not have a lot of commercial value, sometimes it will cost you a per kg rate to treat it and sometimes it can actually cost us extra money on top, but it’s the right thing for the environment that your students are going to grow up in.
“YOU PAY BETTER AND I DON’T HAVE TO GRADE THE MACHINES MYSELF”
We pay up to 15% more than competitors, typically inside 2 weeks of processing.
Some of our competitors offer to pay upfront for the devices, but then they make an adjustment once they receive your assets. You don’t get any more than you do through ACT Logistics. On top of that, you have to do your own assessment on the quality of the devices, separate and grade them and calculate your own return.
What initially seems like a good deal is really just a marketing ploy. Our approach requires less work and thanks to our domestic and international sales channels, you get the same or better money in the end.
“YOU CAN COLLECT LOOSE ASSETS, SO IT TAKES ME LESS TIME”
You don’t need to box up your retiring assets. We can collect them loose, transport them securely and preserve the value. All you need to do is move them into one central location so that we can collect them quickly.
“YOUR TEAM IS SO FAST”
We can quote on the value of your assets almost instantly and once you sign off we can usually be on site within 24 hours to collect your assets.
“I KNOW I’M PROTECTED”
We’re living in the age of the Notifiable Data Breach. And schools are some of the vulnerable organisations when it comes to information security. You need to know that you’re not just selling an asset, you’re securing all the information on it as well. All it takes is one hard drive to be missed and your job may be at risk.
We’ve been in operation for 26 years (as of 2019) and in all that time, processing more than a million assets, we’ve never experienced a data security issue. Our processes for data sanitisation are world-class.
We provide a secure chain of custody and tamper-proof audit trail leading to your assets’ data sanitisation. It’s proof that you’ve done exactly the right thing in dealing with your notebooks, desktops or servers, offloading your risk.
“OUR OLD COMPUTERS PAY FOR THE DEPLOYMENT OF OUR NEW ONES”
We don’t just buy retired assets. We maintain a team of qualified technicians ready to help you deploy your new assets. What’s more, you can use the value in your old desktops, notebooks and monitors to pay for our technicians to roll out your new fleet. So you can concentrate on delivering business as usual support or items of more strategic importance and let us worry about the rollout.
“YOU MAKE END OF LEASE SO EASY”
If you’re coming up to the end of a lease you’ll know the headache involved in gathering up all the assets that you leased 2, 3 or 4 years ago. Then you’ve got to clean them. Then you’ve got to wipe the data.
We make all the headaches go away. We can collect and refurbish your assets, supply spare power packs, replace broken components etc and sanitise the data all at once. Then we’ll deliver them back to the lessor directly, on-time so you don’t face any extra charges.
If you’re not already dealing with us, why not try us the next time you have a disposal ready for collection or a fleet you need deployed correctly? We think we might surprise and delight you.
