We have worked with Afinitek for 4 years and have bought Cisco equipment from them for customer projects we are working on. So when one of our large public sector clients came to us to ask us to support their Cisco environment of over 70 devices we employed the Caretek service from Afinitek. Caretek enables us access to Cisco software updates which we deploy to all devices and in the event of a device failure we know a replacement will be sent direct to our customer site within the SLA timeframe we signed up to. Total piece of mind at the right price.
Afinitek always provides the most competitive costs for our HP requirements, combined with an excellent service and prompt deliveries enables us to repeatedly win business and exceed our customers expectations.
We have purchased several Cartetek support packages for our clients networks. It would be impossible for us to hold stock of all the parts that make up the networks we support so really like the fact that we know replacement parts will be sent when we report a fault. It allows us to focus on what we do best which is supporting the customer and not sourcing replacement parts. We like the fact we can buy IT hardware from Afinitek too, it keeps everything all under one roof.
The Caretek support gave us peace of mind in extending the life of our hosting platform when we migrated from one data centre to another. We had an occasion to call out an engineer to replace a failed hard drive. The call was handled promptly and professionally and well within the SLA, It enabled our hosted environment to continue running. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Caretek, It’s a great service and very sensibly priced.

We try and deliver as much to our customers free of charge, however some of the smaller items or multiples of large items delivered on a pallet may incur a charge relative to its size.
We use a network of national carriers and nationwide couriers, most items are shipped within a day or two on an over night basis, we can however arrange for items to be delivered on a pre 9am or pre 12pm basis subject to your location, in the event of an emergency we can arrange same day deliveries.
Every item is checked before it leaves our warehouse, we can arrange for additional services such as plain shipping of items should you require them to be delivered to a 3rd party.
Cost saving and the environment are of key importance to todays businesses, with this in mind Afinitek offer both brand new and second user equipment, some of our clients invest in second user equipment for a number of reasons, namely to save cost and maximise their budget especially for their secondary or non critical network locations. All our second user hardware is fully checked before shipping. A typical saving on buying second user equipment can be up to 40% compared to a new equivalent. This is also good for the environment, by giving second user hardware a new lease of life back in to a working environment it helps reduce emissions and resources created by manufacturing new versions.
We offer a buy back scheme to help propagate the recycling of good quality hardware back into a working life. If you have any unwanted equipment in particular Cisco or HP servers contact us to realise its value and regain some capital back into your business.
