Why We Do What We Do

The environmental impact of electronic waste has become a growing concern over the last several years, and has become even more aggravated by certain wasteful business practices. Large companies don’t see a large profit margin associated with testing and reselling the vast majority of customer returns, so they have two options: throw out the items, or sell them to a Liquidation company, and subsequently businesses like us. We take these customer returns and test, refurbish, and repair them so that they work like new. This gives them new life and prevents more waste from entering our already overflowing landfills. It also provides a more affordable alternative - giving more people access to products that would usually be out of their budget.

By giving these products another chance at life, it not only minimizes environmental waste and impact, but also gives more people the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of experiences without breaking the bank.

Business Practices

Currently we are a husband and wife team of two working at E-Garage. Pouya is in school studying Engineering and Business, and Tiana studied Environmental Design. We are passionate about creating purposeful change in the world, starting right here in our own community.

Here’s how we do what we do:

We monitor liquidation sites looking for viable pallets to purchase. These pallets come from various companies and primarily consist of customer returns that the originating company does not have the resources to test and resell. When they arrive, we unload them, categorize them, and start testing to see what condition each item is in.

We have a tiered system:

Open Box

Refurbished

Used

Salvage

This allows us to give you, the consumer, an accurate expectation of the condition of each product, and to price each accordingly.

Future Goals

We are passionate about what we do and the change we can bring about in our community. We have so many dreams, ambitions, and goals of how we can take the business to the next level. Here are some things we hope to incorporate into our business practices in the coming years:
