Does anyone know of a reputable place that purchases servers, networking equipment, etc.

I'm moving from a physical to virtual solution and am revamping my whole server infrastructure and need to off load some of my old servers.

Thanks in advance.

I've dealt with www.tradingpartnersintl.com several times and they've been pretty good.  They specialize in liquidating larger sites and purchasing older equipment.

I havea lways been careful to sell stuff to anyone, especially servers.
If you first wipe the hard drive, then secuer erase it, why not do some local schools a favour and give it to them once you have cleraned off all data - they would be more than happy for you to help them out with used equipment!
Just a thought!
