#Refurbed goods and Brand Protection, my real grading criteria. ( Part one )

first refurbisher commandment "Protect the brand"

Usually, when we are looking for a refurbished good, through the e-tailers or shops online or something like that, find out first our article, then we check the price, then , going to specifics, details about status of goods, quality, aesthetic details and so on.

Often, we find some additional details like for example, "certified refurbished" or some grading criteria like for example, A/A plus, B, Star, Gold grade etc. Every company have his grading criteria about refurbed goods, every refurbisher same.

This is correct, it's a good policy in order to protect the customer and get more useful and mandatory details for purchasing.

But how many vendors protect brands ? They are interested to do that or at the end add grist to their mill? When the vendor defines a product as "certified refurbished" applying a grading criteria, it's included the "brand protection"?

Let me say, often the answer is , no ! Because it's a cost.

When i've selected my partners, for my consulting company, my choice is gone to traders and refurbishers, following my visionary idea of circular economy, green and last but not least, the brand protection criteria use.
I am a service company, and my clients ( the brands ) must to be protected.

For example. How many e-tailers or sellers asks to their supplier (to get them "certified refurbished" plate ) if goods are refurbished with original spare parts? Believe me , not so much.
Why , never, there is not mention to "certified refurbished only with original spare parts" ? Simple, because the risk is to lose competitivity.

I get one year of warranty, says the seller, my supplier are selected carefully.
Not works so.

Seller protect his business, but his business is created thanks to the brands, and if you, first protect the brand, you protect business twice.

To use original spare parts, as my refubisher partners do it, safe the native quality, this means "brand protection" and only after that, the final result can be really accredited as "certified refurbished" .

#Circulareconomy, Why it makes sense for manufacturers to adopt #refurbishing in 5 points

At 10 billion of dollars , the refurbished market for consumer electronics is one of the largest in the tech space making it impossible to ignore. Moreover, with no signs of it slowing down any time soon, the refurbished tech may just be the future of consumer tech.

Many consumers have come to realize that refurbished could mean a lot of other things apart from used. Refurbished products are typically manufacturer or store restored products that come at an affordable price since they have been used as demos, damaged during shipping, returned for minor defects, or sometimes just buyer’s remorse.

So, let's see why it makes sense for manufacturers to adopt refurbishing in 5 points

Greater awareness – In recent years more consumers have realized that there are home and kitchen appliances, TVs, wearables, digital cameras, and other popular consumer goods to be had for cheap in the refurbished market. Having realized that refurbished does not mean used or broken, they have been buying these goods, and this has resulted in the renaissance.

A slowdown in the markets – In the consumer electronics market world, there has been a significant slowdown in the United States and Europe, and this has forced manufacturers to get into refurbishing. By refurbishing products networks, manufacturers and repair stores can offer full life cycle services and help consumers get better value for money on their goods.

New innovations – Even though there are many factors that can be blamed for the slowdown in the tech market, rising costs of new products due to new technologies have also played a massive role in the shift towards refurbished. Big Players introducing shiny and innovative features such as tech innovations more and more frequently, the costs have been rising in line with prices and this has pushed many consumers out of the new products market, to refurbished.

Competition – With new manufacturers of Home appliances which offering budget products, major companies have had to shift to selling refurbished to prevent the loss of market share and revenue. Some of the major companies , have recycling and take-back programs that accept old consumer tech, which can be repaired and then sold as refurbished.

Environment and CO2 - As consumer demand continues to rise, refurbished technology is undoubtedly the future of consumer tech. Selling slightly used or older products can be instrumental in helping manufacturers bolster their bottom line, minimize the threat of e-waste, and improve the reputation of their brands. There will always be people who will take a pre-owned products, open box, or slightly scratched as long as it works, is of the right model, and brand. Working together, manufacturers and consumers can work towards win-win outcomes with refurbished tech, and by doing so, will have a positive CO2 impact on the environment.

#Reverselogistic . Then? We Can …

What are the limits of most part of reverse logistics companies?

I was speaking in past with a friend of mine about a project with super enthusiasm, and he told me as per answer "Mik, they already invented coke, and Nutella as well" . Are past more than 25 years from that, but anytime im reading about a project , think about my friend's answer.

I've started unusually, this post today, with a personal thought , because i want introduce,shortly, my new project called "Pick-up & Refurb" , but at the same time i want speak about the limit of some Reverse Logistics companies focus on electronics or non food.

a short premise, this is my personal point of view. I've max respect of all reverse logistics companies, and i think their job as mandatory, basical for all companies have in mind to evolve in circular economy.

The question is: " reverse logistic, but then? "

Most part of my follower are in supply chain, and have perfect idea about reverse logistic flows.

I simplify in large terms. Returns are collected, via end user or in shops or others instrument, parcelized, managed, checked, sent in storage or to the manufacturer directly.

Great . All carrier companies makes this, DHL, Fedex and so on. The war between reverse logistics companies it's all in services quality and prices, because more or less services are all the same, or better "have to be" all the same because the flows are the same. but then?

Then the products follows different road-maps, some of them are scrapped, going to weee, sold per kilo, often sold to traders without any "brand protection" policy; so basically products surfing in a deep ocean of sharks, where costs saved risks to be lost, and this is, from my point of view, the bottleneck .

What is new in "Pick-up & Refurb" ?

Simply , the project it's realistically a "Closed-loop" Supply Chain circular economy instrument .

We collect and manage returns, in all possible cases, directly end-user-home, shops, returns logistic and so on. THEN, in our logistic we check them, categorize, identify all single item with UID code, palletize it and after we've sent all technical data to the client are sent to our refurbishment centers , where the products are repaired and refurbished according client specifications.

THEN, when the process is completed, only 100% working products, certified refurbished, tested and graded , are sent back to the client or sold in our markets Extra EU or EU, according agreement with the client.

Not working products, are cannibalized for spare parts, or sent to weee, according european laws, with valid EU certification.

All process data about repairing, defects, serial defectiveness, quality, grading and so on are shared and sent to the client which is completely in knowledge about on every single step, operator, process of his products in real time thanks to the UID code.

A new lifecycle, less electronic waste, realistic saving cost actions, less CO2 impact ( we cut a logistic step at the beginning )

This is ( my point of view ) the real Supply chain "Closed Loop" , this is for me what means circular economy , in few words THEN? We can.

Why manufacturer must to invest in refurbishment services? The 5 Reasons to buy #Refurbished #appliances.

If this unforeseen pandemic has taught us anything, it is to put second-hand first and considering the environmental benefits associated with reusing products, this concept is clearly gaining popularity too. The economic impact of the current pandemic is likely to affect consumer behaviour and we foresee European consumers to largely lean towards the value-for-money proposition. Whether it is the European education system, we are seeing businesses make a digital shift.

During this hour of need, technology is making its way into our homes through online education for students and work from home jobs among others. Owing to the cost-saving benefits they offer, pre-owned and refurbished products like home appliances are gaining momentum along with pre-owned furniture like computer tables and study tables as well. As consumers adapt to the ‘new normal’ they can buy good quality products at affordable prices. The bonus point being, its effect on the environment as reusing helps save mother nature.

Although the pandemic has caused an economic impact across industries, Europe’s appetite for pre-owned goods will continue to grow with the increasing demand for accessibility to aspirational brands and products. below are 5 reasons why consumers should opt to buy refurbished goods:

1.Certified and assured options

Many refurbished goods come with certified and assured options.This process aids in driving customers’ faith towards the refurbished good market

2.Warranty, buyback options

The refurbished market offer exciting options, such as warranty, discounts, doorstep delivery, product installation, demo options and buy-back options. Going for such add-on options simplify the consumer’s life as the brand takes care of the entire process right from delivery to installation. Additionally, it helps in building customer goodwill and brand loyalty.

3.Value for money

In these trying times, consumers have reduced budgets and want to cater to their immediate needs only. A refurbished product which is as good as new at a comparatively lower price makes a perfect alternative.

4.Sustainable option

With natural calamities like global warming haunting the planet, people over the world are following the concept of re-using to reduce the amount of waste generated. Re-using is not the only answer to this problem, but this kind of resource efficiency reduces pressure on the environment. It helps in reducing the size of landfills, leads to optimum utilization of resources and gives a longer shelf life to the products.

5.Life upgrade

Whether it is a completely touch-enabled Microwave owen or a motion sensing vacuum robot, new gadgets are launched every other week. The rise in such new tech is directly proportional to the growing aspirations of European consumers. Buying refurbished appliances allow for upgradation to better life quality and latest features at a much lesser price.

#Returns #Repair #Refurbishment #Re-sale #Recove #Recycle #Reduce

the seven "R" according Michele Del Vecchio, CEO and founder of Buyref and ricondizionatoshop.com

Difficulties in recycling electrical waste from household clearouts during COVID-19 lockdown could derail some Countries compliance with targets after a record year, WEEE EU has warned.

Now will be mandatory for home appliances manufacturer, E-tailers, Retailers, end users, work to not waste all progresses achieved . So, what the solution? We asked to our CEO Michele Del Vecchio, his point of view.

"the only recipe is that, there isn't a recipe" starts Michele, "i mean, nobody was ready to this emergency, nothing could be compared to other crisis, so , nobody can say -i have the solution- , and for that reason the only one help, could comes only from the experience, that's it.

Following my experience, for home appliances companies, is not a solution but could be seriously helpful have to follows the "seven R's " which are for me, the mandatory circular economy rules .

#Returns , a good reverse logistic policy, surely will improve the management of all returns are from "E-COVID-SALES" , could be also, the opportunity to get better in CO2 impact topic. We've choosed as partner a reverse logistic company based properly to their CO2 policy and not based on costs

#Repair and #Refurbishment , now it's time to be more open in order to repair ( right to ) and refurbishment policy. Companies will embrace those strategies, will are alligned with EU rules in terms of #Reduce electronics waste, as EU required. Our partners, works in refurbishment from years, have skills, experience, effort and quality, basically are ready to get battle.

#Re-sale, will be for companies a must. Sell their returns, or refurbished products, it's deeply strategical to mantain the market share, the brand awareness. This not will create internal conflicts, because new pristine and refurbished products are sold, normally in two differents and specific markets ( outlets, specialized E-stores etc. ) at least, will help to #Recove and to save loss and costs.

#Recycle , is not the flows ending , have to be the mantra, something inside, a winning mentality, and not the future, but the present. Something probably, till now , considered only a fashion trend, but converted surely by crisis in something more serious and not more to postpone, but to work on it concretely .

#Refurbishment. Why Should buy refurbished domestic appliances ? the expert says …

In our vision of a circular economy, consumer electronic products are loved for longer.They are kept in use for as long as possible, either by the original user, or flowing to new users who will find new value and utility in them. Eventually, devices end up in the hands of specialists, who will professionally refurbish products, reuse or remanufacture the valuable
components inside, and separate and recycle materials.

But, why should be convenient buy refurbished products? Viorel Mirea, Ceo of Expert Recare srl , refurbishment company based in the wonderful Bucharest, help us explaining his"inside" point of view

I have been thinking, says Mr Viorel Mirea, what should provide a refurbisher to its clients in order to make them choose domestic appliances refurbished instead of new one.

1. Transparency regarding the product's history – product used or never
been used (packaging issues – product needs safety and functional test
just to be sure that it wasn't damaged along with its packaging)
2. Product's quality/condition – product passed safety tests, fully
functional, hygienic and proper packed
3. Warranty and return policy – build trust in regards to the product
quality
4. Price – an important decision factor
5. After sales service support – important to know that there is a
service which provide support in case of any issue appeared (call
center, service center). These are the main important services which will make a person buyingrefurbished."

from our point of view ( Ricondizionatoshop.com side ) we add the CO2 impact, relate d to the refurbishment processes. This is our mandatory "mantra" which we selected our partners/finish goods/best for end users.

#Refurbishment. The 5 mandatory rules to be a perfect refurbisher.We asked an expert



There are two ways to save money on big purchases like kitchen appliances power tools: you can wait and wait for the best sales, and then fight your way through the crowds to shop them; or you can buy certified refurbished merchandise for significant discounts. The best part? These refurbished products look, feel and function like they’re brand new.

When you purchase a refurbished appliance from a trusted seller like Amazon Renewed or Ebay you’re getting an item that has been used and then returned within the short return window. It’s repaired and certified to ensure it’s functioning like new, and sold at a significant discount. Sometimes, those items haven’t been used ( or NFF, not faulty Found ) — they were just returned in opened packaging and so can’t be sold as “new” anymore, even if they are indeed new.

As per trusted seller, often, we are speaking about of refurbisher, companies which works returns, repairing, cleaning, re-packing, basically getting a new lifecycle to the items. But what are the rules which are mandatory for a refurbisher to guarantee quality, working and a good deal for customer? We asked an expert, Viorel Mirea CEO and founder of Expert Recare srl, refurbishment company based in the beautiful Bucharest in Romania.

"The perfect refurbisher - says Mr. Mirea - should be focused to provide the best service for its partners and final clients, must protect the environment in all its actions and should consider the:

1. Safety - the products should be safe in operation
2. Functionality - the product should work as described by manufacturer,
nothing different by a new product.
3. Hygiene - the product should be perfect cleaned, brought as close as
possible "as new" condition.
4. Price - the price should be fair - real deal
5. Respect - for business partners and environment.

The perfect refurbisher should be fair and respectful with its business
partners, should provide a safe and fully functional product, perfectly
cleaned at a very good "green" price." says Mr. Mirea in conclusion.

Words of Mr.Mirea sounds good, speaking about that refurbishment it's built across a mix of experience, professional skills, a full vision of circular economy activities, which means obsessive attention to technical details, which is from my point of view, first quality im looking from a perfect refurbisher.

Home appliances. How , refurbishment, can be helpful for sales during COVID-19 emergence

The impact of the coronavirus on global logistics has been severe. Many countries have imposed substantial restrictions on border traffic.

The coronavirus has hit global trade hard. Because of the outbreak, many governments have imposed travel restrictions along with lockdowns with varying degrees of severity. The world’s trade lanes have all experienced double-digit declines. Most of them have experienced declines of over 30 percent.

The Chinese lockdown measures have had supply chain implications for many Western countries. This is because of the importance of China in so many of the world’s supply chains.

As a result, even businesses encountering increased demand, such small domestic appliances and electrical equipment, are facing supply chain issues that endanger their production.

The global impact of the coronavirus on the economy and supply chains is still difficult to assess in its entirety. However, what is already clear is that the impacts of the virus are severe and are likely to extend over the next few months at least.

So, how refurbishment services can be helpful for small domestic appliances and consumer electronics industry?

To be clear, this is not "THE" solution, but one of the right strategies useful to mitigate and/or financial/clients loss , because ...

If is not possible sell brand new products due COVID shipping restrictions, could be sold refurbished ones , reducing a big part of commercial losses and opening a new commercial market

Products refurbished are much appreciated from online buyers, which seems , are increasing day by day.

From scrap returns, refurbishers can harvest spare parts useful to be sent to service centers, solving a big issue with customer satisfied, if the far-east supplier delay the production and the shipping.

Considering entire supply chains broken due to country lockdowns,
missing raw materials, longer lead times, etc. Refurbishment and harvesting spare parts, could be an instrument to avoid market speculations, containing costs and cash .

Refurbishment household appliances reduce CO2 impact

My website claim is "buy refurbished and save the planet" . This not only an "emotional" claim, it's a way to live, not only for me but i hope , for everyone live in a sustainable way.

The everyday use of home appliances, laptops or mobile phones is an obvious cause of CO2 emissions. While obvious, everyday use is not the main cause, which comes when manufacturing the product. In this case, recycling appliances or IT devices reduces landfill waste, but increases CO2 emissions, because it increases the need to manufacture replacement products.

Across society, sustainability has become a critical issue, so it is important to understand how to make your business and operations more sustainable. Saving energy is good, but reducing emissions is better. Companies should consider using circular supply chains and refurbishment services. Rather than the traditional ‘take, make, dispose’ model, a circular economy reuses and refurbish products and materials to minimise waste and make the most of our natural resources.

From a sustainability perspective, while recycling obsolescent appliance or device should ensure some valuable metal reuse, it is only a partial solution. Every time an organisation throws away a laptop, or an owen a blender they need a new one to replace it. By comparison, if old appliances or devices are refurbished they can be reused by a less demanding user and displace the need to manufacture replacements.

Evidence of human impact on fragile ecosystems surrounds us, and we continue to overconsume finite resources. Refurbishing is part of the solution: one way to reduce the carbon footprint, raw materials used and e-waste produced.

The choice is not between being sustainable and being profitable. There is a business case for more sustainable behaviour: Quite simply, refurbishing Appliances or IT will extract more value than recycling. Sales departments can sell used refurbished products , avoid recycling fees and landfill taxes. There is also a change coming in buying behaviour: organisations with sustainability policies will require suppliers to meet their sustainability standards; this practice started in Sweden, and is spreading south. Even if not a mandatory buying criterion, demonstrable sustainability can help differentiate your organisation and create a competitive edge.

IT devices are natural candidates for circular business models. Use a qualified and certified refurbishment service based on a circular economy approach, and your products policies offer a route to more sustainable electronic. This is a simple step to improve the sustainability of your operations while developing a plan to do better. Not only does this choice makes good commercial sense, it is also the right thing to do for the planet.
