Asset Residual Value (ARV) Maintenance

Our Asset Residual Value (ARV) service provides a means to recoup potential market value from surplus, decommissioned, end of service life (EOSL) and legacy equipment against potential maintenance support cost for current hardware, effectively providing a cost neutral service support solution.

What is asset residual value ‘ARV’ service ?

ARV is a unique service that BASE IT has introduced as a cost neutral way to maintain IT hardware that is now either post warranty, End of Life or End of Service Life (EOL / EOSL). Our service enables customers with IT hardware in various stages of a lifecycle program to place an extended maintenance support, irrespective whether 3,6,9, or even 12 months of support is required, effectively creating a cost neutral solution.

We enable a cost neutral maintenance solution to be delivered through the residual value in your IT hardware that we would remove at the end of the agreed maintenance support term. Services for secure decommissioning and data erasure in line with internal compliance requirements will also form part of the hardware lifecycle services program discussion.

If you have no requirement for a support service, our ARV service can still benefit you. We can provide you with a residual value quotation for your IT server and storage hardware and discuss the decommissioning and data erasure process, enabling you to obtain a far greater return on your initial capital investment. There is no obligation in obtaining an ARV quotation, but it allows you to explore if this service could be viable and beneficial for you.
