Who we buy from
Ticknology (UK) Ltd will consider purchasing equipment from any company based on UK Mainland provided there is sufficient value in the equipment to cover all admin, shipping and processing costs.
There may be occasions when there is not sufficient value or quantity of equipment for Ticknology UK Ltd to warrant purchasing, if such an occasion should occur we will advise accordingly.
We are only able to consider purchasing equipment from larger businesses / distributors where there would be sufficient value in the stock / assets to cover our processing costs. Regrettably we are not able to consider purchasing any equipment from private individuals.
What we buy
Ticknology UK Ltd will consider purchasing most IT and Consumer Electrical hardware which still has some residual value. Full details available here.
We will NOT purchase any goods which have been deemed unsafe, manufacturer recalled, stolen, still under lease or rental agreements, or do not have the permission of the rightful owner to be sold.
We check the serial numbers of all submitted orders via Check MEND to ensure no stolen items are sold to us. If we at any time become aware of any issues, we reserve the right to withhold/cancel payment and you agree to co-operate with us and any authorities should we so request.
Valuation of goods

All amounts will be paid in GBP (£) sterling by the payment method you have chosen; direct UK bank transfer, PayPal or company cheque, posted to the address you provide to us.

Purchases of excess or box damaged stock from recognised distributors will be paid for prior to delivery or collection should this be required.
Payments are also subject to validation and security checks which we or third parties may stipulate from time to time. Payments are non-transferable and will be made to the payee named as instructed in the sales agreement. If you would like someone else to receive payment, you must ensure you have all the correct details and authorisation.
Payments will be sent in the case of postal payments to the address you stipulate when we set up the agreement. Payments sent in the post will be sent via second class Royal Mail post (3-5 days delivery time).
Payments are made using the details which you provide. You must ensure that you provide all correct, accurate details, including without limit, payment and account details. We will not be liable if you fail to receive a payment or suffer a loss (including if a payment is sent to an incorrect account) as a result of your failure to input all payment and other details correctly, completely and accurately.
