Tour a Working Refurbishment Operation
If you're starting a computer repair or refurbishment operation, you need to see how such a business works at scale.
Take a tour of Computers for Classrooms with founder Pat Furr. Computers for Classrooms is a non-profit Microsoft Registered Refurbisher that refurbishes donated PCs. Once refurbished, computers are sold at incredible discounts to schools and individuals in need.
Pat opened her warehouse for a quick tour—and we thought we should immortalize it on the internet. Watch once, then watch again to see how this refurbishment operation works.
