Money4Computers is a service provided by R D C Trading Ltd T/A RDC of Tekhnicon, Braintree, Essex CM7 2YN ("RDC").
Money4Computers provides Customers with an initial estimate of specific types of computer equipment based on information submitted by the Customer.
If the Customer wishes to proceed, they register with Money4Computers, label their equipment and place it in their nearest Bybox box. The equipment is then shipped to RDC for testing and audit.
RDC commits to erase or destroy all Customer data and provide you with an audit certificate of your equipment, along with a firm offer for the purchase of your equipment. For every item received, RDC commits to make a donation on your behalf into our charity pot which gets split between Digital Pipeline and In Kind Direct charity to help equip schools in Africa. RDC also commits to ensuring that no material from any faulty units goes to landfill.
