PRODUCT AND PROJECT VALUATION
Veterans Alliance Resourcing, Inc. “VAR” offers Clients the convenience of providing free product valuations to help you determine the current value of your products in the secondary market. Additionally, VAR’s valuation process does not require a detailed product list; just a few pictures, a few questions, and a few serial numbers are often adequate. VAR can even provide a complete overview of what you should expect to recover for your entire asset retirement project.
For most Clients in Texas and surrounding states, VAR offers an economical truck pick-up service that includes all packaging, palletizing and transport of Products. For Clients in other locations across North America, VAR offers pick-up services utilizing air, LTL, and truckload carriers. Clients may also opt to utilize their own transportation services.

AUDIT AND REPAIR
VAR utilizes a world-class ERP system that captures component-level system configuration on Laptops, Desktops, and Servers while facilitating scanned barcode data capture by VAR operations of all assets. This system allows us to provide our Clients serialized audit reports on their Lot(s) quickly and efficiently. Focused on improvements to a Client’s Net Recovery, our tech team provides the option of performing minor repairs to enhance product recovery values. Settlement Reports provide detailed information regarding the condition of the product at receipt, the VAR services and upgrades performed, the final product condition and configuration, VAR's resale price and the Net Recovery amount due to our Client.
REMOVAL AND DATA CAPTURE OF PROPERTY TAGS
VAR provides free removal of Property Tags with optional services for data capture and return of these tags.
PRODUCT REMARKETING & VALUE RECOVERY
The three critical components of successful Product Remarketing are:
Resale Channel – VAR has cultivated our global resale channel over four decades maximizing value recovery deep into the product lifecycle.
Assigned Costs for Logistics, Audit, Repair, Parts and Product Resale – This is where most companies lose money (and ITAD companies profit). The assigned fees often exceed the recovery value.
Product Condition – Although improving product condition (refurbishing) can open up channels of resale to include end-users and other higher recovery channels, it can also incur additional costs that adversely impact the final settlement. VAR's dealer network, comprised of thousands of dealers across the globe, can accept products in any working condition.
EMPLOYEE BUY-BACK PROGRAM
For Clients that want to offer their employees the opportunity to buy retired assets, VAR offers an Employee Buy-Back Program that makes that process easy while also ensuring that sensitive corporate data has been removed from the resold asset. All received units are first handled using VAR’s standard audit and data destruction processes, then offered to the employee at a discounted wholesale price. VAR handles the collection of payments, shipment and warranty administration.
