About us

We have been retailing UPS and associated hardware since Aug 2001. We have thousands of units in stock and have extended experience of working with UPS. We can guide customers to the the best option for their specific use, and all of our units are priced at a fraction of their original RRP. Unless stated otherwise, our UPS will have new cells fitted and 12 month RTB warranty with us. They will all be fully functional.

We also offer the battery packs that UPS are dependent upon.

We operate from a 500 square meter warehouse in Warrington. 

For every transaction, and every customer interaction we aim to meet the level and standard that we  would like to receive ourselves. We make extra efforts to achieve this under strenuous and frustrating circumstances. Every hour there are small things that can be done to make sure we shoulder our share of the burden in making the world better. 

Green thinking: As a seller of used goods we are an enabler of re-use. Obviously the cost saving of buying used compared to new is a major driver, but there is increasing customer focus on what the cost to the planet is. Buying used + refurbished helps people minimise the depleting effect of commercial manufacturing activity on the environment.

Cell rebuild kits packed and ready to ship. Note no foam was used in the packaging, but we strengthened using cardboard camshell reinforcements. The banding is still plastic which is not ideal, but a company is starting to prototype bio-degradable strapping and we will use that when it becomes available. Update 2023 - we tried the bio-banding and found it was not strong enough yet.
