Why Markitx Is Better Than Tatooine

The resale market for used IT equipment is as dry and unfriendly as Tatooine. So what's an IT pro supposed to do with their old servers, switches and routers?

If you're here reading this, you know MarkITx is a friendly planet. We provide you with a free valuation of what your gear is worth and, when you're ready to buy or sell, our matching engine takes all the work out of finding what you need. Of course, you could always wait for the scavengers to haul away your droids. Maybe they will build clusters to calculate how in the world Han Solo did the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs (h/t Stupendous Man).

That Cisco switch gathering dust in the corner of your Rebel base? Yeah, it's worth money. Want to justify a badass server to battle the dark side? Show your finance director how much you can offset the cost by selling some of your used equipment on the exchange.

MarkITx is an equal opportunity IT exchange where all members and transactions are protected from Jawas and other rodent-like gear grubbers.

Even though we do our best to keep the tricksters at bay, on occasion, they slip through. Recently, one enterprising Jawa was spotted impersonating a trader on the MarkITx exchange. It's unclear what this particular Jawa was planning to do with the money recouped through multiple trades. What is more annoying is the high-pitched complaints about sand in the equipment and overheating machines, but no one has yet to file a ticket.

Utinni!
