Value Add Process
Novastar Solutions has the ability to manage the de-installation and logistics of your equipment from your location to ours, from anywhere in the United States and Canada. Upon arrival, assets are tracked by serial number, audited for condition, functionality, and recovery value. Equipment is thoroughly cleaned and all non-OEM identifying labels are removed to ensure customer privacy.
Upon audit completion, a full audit report is furnished to the client (typically within 5-10 business days) which includes detailed asset information including serial number, make, model, configuration, condition, functionality, and estimated recovery value. These audit reports can be customized to suit your needs or automated integration requirements.
Equipment is securely stored in our warehousing facilities which are equipped with security systems consisting of, but not limited to, video surveillance cameras, motion detectors, wired doors, and a fire sprinkler system. Novastar Solutions is fully insured and bonded.

The certificate will include the serial numbers of the storage devices wiped or destroyed as well as the system serial number denoting where they came from (when applicable).
Why Novastar ITAD?
Sustainability is at the core of what Novastar strives to achieve. Our focus is to retrieve value wherever possible when remarketing equipment on behalf of our clients. Over 95% of the remarketing equipment processed is resold on the secondary market, ensuring maximum value for your assets. If an asset is deemed defective, it will be disposed of properly in accordance with local laws and regulations.
Novastar requires its downstream electronics waste partners to use EPA approved standards, and provide certificates of destruction. Annual audits are conducted of our downstream providers with Novastar personnel inspecting our waste management partner’s facility.
