    MEGA Battery Backups + Lots of Resale Stuff

    I had a great load last week. I just now have time to share this with my scrapping family.
    We have a regular customer that we do recycling for here in town.
    Last month one of the IT Managers asked me if I would go to Des Moines to pick up from a office they were closing.
    This is a large Fortune 500 company.
    I said I would make the 100 mile trip (one way) without knowing what they had.
    They have always been good to me and I wanted them to know that I would do what needed to be done.
    I was asking for some clarification as to volume so I would know what vehicle to bring.
    He said he was more worried about weight than volume.
    We decided to take my 3 ton van and the Ford Super Duty, thinking we could rent a trailer there if there was still too much.
    I will share some of the stuff we brought back with some pictures.

    1 APC Matrix 5000W UPS (uninterruptible power supply)
    4 APC 2200 XL's UPS's (these all have all of the hardware, software, cables, mounting brackets and trim pieces with them)
    1 APC 1500W UPS
    3 APC 1000W UPS's
    4 APC 750W UPS's
    5 APC 500W
    All of the UPS's are working great with good batteries!
    2 ADTRAN Smart 16 Shelf 2nd GEN (Tele Com Controller) Very expensive and working!
    1 Dell PowerVault 110T (already sold on eBay for $185.00 + shipping)
    13 Motorola Raduis Radios (already sold on eBay for 300 + shipping)
    2 Cisco switches (older not working scrap)
    100+ thin client computer work stations
    1 huge 30 amp 4 place power stations
    2 Cisco System Catalyst 4006 full of switches and working
    3 Cisco IP Phones Model 7945 (bidding on eBay is already at $52.00 untested and for parts)
    There was a lot more stuff, but you get the idea. I will put up some pictures also.
    I still get goose bumps thinking how grateful I am.

















    There may a million better places to live than Iowa, but none of them are home!

    A few more...



    A couple Apple G5 Servers that work



    This was one of my best resale loads. In a earlier thread I had asked about a Outlet store. A lot of folks said eBay was still a better option. I have been having very good luck so far with that. Thank You everyone for all of your help and kind words. I have also been fishing every weekend with my Beautiful Mother in the scrapper boat. Feeling blessed and not feeling bad about that!

    awesome I live in ames so were sort of close lol but I get a lot from auctions here most are good scrap non working for batteries and parts but get a few nicer ones to sell on clist and ebay since they go fast and not for sure if you have looked into companies this way but there are a lot of tech and production here in town and i do not have the setup right now to handle everything as i get so much in i barley can process it fast enough to make room for more even with 1 employee its a lot to do but will be expanding about this time next year to be able to handle the inflow so wanted to throw that your way so you could get some more business

    No I did not pay for the stuff.
    My company does all of their electronic recycling.
    I have a standing relationship with these folks.

    I really do not pay for much scrap that has not been broke down.
    I know I hear a lot of folks on here talking about that, but I just have not had to go there yet.
