AGILENT Technologies has announced an industry-first agreement with online marketplace eBay, allowing sellers to offer pre-owned test equipment on eBay that has been assured through the new Agilent Advantage Assurance program.
This program gives customers the option to purchase Agilent test equipment on eBay that has been evaluated and fully calibrated by Agilent to meet performance specifications. The program also provides one year of free technical support from Agilent.
Under the terms of the program, an eBay seller may ship a pre-owned instrument to Agilent, where it receives an initial evaluation and then is fully calibrated by Agilent technicians.
Once Agilent determines the unit meets its specifications, the seller is allowed to post the unit for sale on the eBay Web site.
At the end of the listing duration, the instrument is shipped directly from Agilent to the winning bidder within 24 hours. Buyers are fully insured against all repair costs for 12 months.
Also, should the instrument require repair during the first 12 months, it will receive a free calibration to ensure it meets all published specifications.
