How It Works

Ucan Secure IT is licensed to collect/repair any redundant IT equipment (WEEE). A typical collection arranged with us goes like this:


Step 1

Equipment is collected and carried safely in our vehicles to our industrial warehouse located in Buttershaw, Bradford.

Step 2

Once here at Ucan, the collected equipment is bar-coded and allocated a reference number for asset tracking.

Step 3

Equipment is then visually inspected and categorised for either disposal or refurbishment/reuse.

Step 4

A certificate of Destruction/Disposal (C.O.D.) is issued for each item to give you peace of mind that all data is either erased or destroyed.

Step 5

We remove all company references and security markings from equipment. If security markings cannot be removed, equipment will automatically be forwarded for breakdown and disposal.

Step 6

Equipment allocated for re-marketing is then subjected to a functionality test and graded depending on condition. Asset reports of the equipment are offered for your perusal as a hard copy or as an electronic file.
