Argecy Certified Refurbished
Argecy offers a new standard in refurbished printers and office electronics.
Our refurbished equipment is a superior product.

A meticulous quality control process that results in like new performance that we stand behind.
Argecy is always so pleasant and knowledgeable! I can always count on them doing a great job and giving excellent service! Thank you Argecy team. you make my life easier almost daily! ”
Quality is very important to us.
Different suppliers have different definitions of the word refurbished. We define refurbished as "like new" both in terms of performance and cosmetic appearance. We offer consistently high quality by taking responsibility for its production. With our high standards it takes up to 4 hours to fully refurbish a single machine!
Hi, Just wanted to say a big Thank You for getting the part for my printer and sending it out, it arrived today and I got my printer working like new again, I am very grateful for the service you have provided me… ”
What makes Argecy's refurbished printers, printer accessories and office electronics different?
What it takes to be called an Argecy Certified Refurbished printer
The quality of our refurbished equipment and service sets us FAR above the rest. (See warehouse pictures here).
Our standards of operation are specified and documented. Every process is defined and structures are in place to assure control and production. Ship-groups, RMA processes, etc., are all part of the recipe.
Our BIS system integrates:
- full inventory tracking and cost control
- report generation
- single entry shipping services
- email progress notifications
- proactive follow-up and continuous support
- secure, on-line ordering and history tracking
- invoicing and archiving
We are extremely meticulous in our process - it takes 4 hours to fully clean and restore a single machine!
We often receive equipment from other dealers that they call refurbished. Not by our definition, and certainly not with our name on it!

Ratings & Reviews
I really appreciated David's help with our printer problem in Baltimore. He could've dumped our problem on someone else, but he took the time to walk me through it and order the parts we need.
Thanks David and technician!
I say this:
My employer would better serve themselves if they would purchase from
vendors that also provides service. Had they accepted that I sought such
a vendor and recommended Argecy, we would have received better value.
Argecy, as the parts wholesaler to the retail vendor, has provided valiant
and exemplary assistance before and after we purchased parts, even though
my employer sought a vendor solely based on price, not value. Argecy
received no direct remuneration from my employer.
Argecy is recognized for their worthy service and support of our business.
Thanks very much, Dave and all at Argecy!
Thank you, and your team, for getting that out so timely. It's nice to know that you not only sent it quickly, but that you sent a quality piece of equipment. It helps me feel more confident each time I order from Argecy.
The printer arrived on time and was installed without incident. It is my wife's pharmacy and the non-technical crew there got it going without even a phone call. Thanks for excellent service!
Argecy is always so pleasant and knowledgeable! I can always count on them doing a great job and giving excellent service! Thank you Argecy team.. you make my life easier almost daily!
Rachel, just wanted to verify that we have both received and set up the printer. It works fine and I'm pleased with my purchase. Thanks.
Dave was outstanding in helping me get a super awesome tech support to help me get the printer up and running. thank you Dave and the staff. you guys are great.
I did receive the printer, very quickly, too! I've not installed it yet, hopefully today. I'll call if there are any issues, though I do not expect any.
Thanks so much for the follow up, it's getting kind of rare these days!

Just wanted to say a big thank you for getting the part for my printer and sending it out, it arrived today with me and now got my printer working like new again, I am very grateful with the service you have provided me, so big thank you for everything
Well, let me tell you - she now has fans for life!!! We are owners of a NAPA Auto Parts Store and that teeny little card was keeping us from printing our statements which run about $70 - $90K in receivable income back into our store each month! Without that part = no statement = no checks coming in = not good! You get the picture. I have only just started spreading the word to all the other store owners about your terrific company and outstanding employee you have in Sue. In fact, an owner in Texas had an order going for toner (with a completely different company) and after I told him what happened, he cancelled and will be calling her tomorrow.
In closing, I would like to say simply, thank you to your company for existing and thank you for having the good sense to hire Sue. This is one of many orders she will be receiving as a result of her knowledge, professionalism, courtesy and caring.
Requested a manual and technical assistance for a troublesome printer and received it instantly. Thanks Dave great response.
Dave was super helplful, quick and professional.
We've done business with Argecy, Dave, for almost 3 years and I've always been happy with the service. Dave goes out of his way to satisfy the customer. Good company to do business with!
Fast shipping and the part fits perfect.
Dave was prompt in replying to my email with a link to the part I needed. My "antique" printer is up and running again. Thanks for the super service.
Thanks to Dave for great tech support! I will be recommending Dave and his team to other people looking to buy computer equipment
Greg, I talk you guys up at every opportunity. It make a huge difference to have the support of a business run by humans, reachable by email and phone, who care about the quality of their work and their products as I care about my own.
Not to mention, you're just nice people.
I could do a whole political rant too, about how you run a local business that employs people onshore, in the age of offshore. An actual American entrepreneurial business, distressingly rare and the value of which goes mostly unappreciated in the age of amazon and Wal-mart.
Happy Monday, and thanks again,
Wonderful! I had such an excellent experience with you guys.
Thank you so much!!
