4 Benefits of Sony UK TEC's Trade-In and Refurbished Scheme

Sony UK Technology Centre’s ground-breaking ‘Go 4K Now!’ programme provides customers with the opportunity to acquire high quality broadcasting and filming equipment, refurbished to factory standards.

As part of the project, which is in collaboration with Sony Professional Solutions Europe (PSE), customers can trade in their used equipment to gain access to next generation 4K technology.

The second-hand equipment is then fully refurbished by Sony UK TEC’s professional Service and Repair Centre, where they also manufacture the latest broadcasting systems, and re-sold with a manufacturer’s warranty.

For those who may be interested in the scheme, we take a look at some of the benefits the scheme has for you.

Budget-friendly Equipment

Getting into the broadcasting and filming industry can be daunting, especially when considering the price of brand-new equipment – cameras and accessories alike. Sony UK TEC’s refurbished scheme takes some of the pressure off by providing access to low-cost, high-quality broadcasting products you may not have had access to otherwise.

Through direct contact with current customers, we’re also able to look for the product that is right for you and your situation, while ensuring we are working with you and your budget constraints.

Whether you’re looking to start off in the industry or expand your existing portfolio, the scheme makes this possible at any level.

Replacements for Your Current Kit

Not everyone is looking to purchase a brand-new system. We understand that some customers may simply be looking for accessories and cameras that are compatible with their existing kit, and we can help!

With contacts throughout Europe, our inventory is constantly growing. So, if you need to expand your current kit, we can ensure that when your desired product model becomes available, you will be our first point of contact.

Refurbished by the people who made it

At our facility in Pencoed, we not only handle the refurbished units, or units in need of repair, but we are also the only Sony manufacturing site outside of Japan to be able to make Sony professional broadcasting equipment, from purchase order to customer delivery and after sales service.

As such, we have expert knowledge regarding the manufacturing processes of these models, and so are able to ensure your product is refurbished to direct manufacturing specifications, following Sony manufacturing standards and procedures. This ensures the quality of the items you receive remains to a high standard.

Because our team has the experience and knowledge to ensure this standard of quality, we can provide a generous manufacturer’s warranty with each of your purchases.

It’s Environmentally Friendly

Our ‘Go 4K Now!’ scheme is certainly economical for your business, but this isn’t its only benefit. By trading in your equipment, you can ensure that it doesn’t go to waste. An exceptional amount of electronic equipment goes to landfills every day, rather than being properly recycled.

Instead of contributing to this waste, your second-hand broadcasting cameras and accessories can go on to help others within your community or in developing industries begin or expand their businesses when they purchase our refurbished products. Without this service, they may not be able obtain the products they need.
