Second Chance Computers 

Freshly Built For You

Unlike many of our competitors we do not mass prepare computers to sit on the warehouse shelves gathering dust waiting for orders to fulfil.
Our computers are freshly built for our customers. We only use the best components when we build your machine. Our Computers are designed to perform. We offer you a 12 Months Parts & Labour Warranty on all our Grade ‘A’ refurbished computers and a 6 Months Parts & Labour warranty on our Grade ‘B’ PCs, so you can rest assured that we believe in our products. Let  Second Chance Computers (SCC) build your machine and we guarantee you will not be disappointed!  

About us

Second Chance Computers (SCC) is a premium reseller of quality refurbished laptops, refurbished desktops and refurbished PCs sourced from large corporations and government departments throughout the UK & Ireland. We provide professionally refurbished equipment with genuine Microsoft Windows 10 COA. This means all refurbished laptops and desktops have a legal re-installation of software with the operating system upgraded to Windows 10 as standard. We are so confident in our reconditioned laptops and desktops that we offer a minimum 6 month to twelve month guarantee – dependent on the equipment purchased.

Our Grading System
Grade ‘A’ & Grade ‘B’

We have 2 qualities of refurbished computers Grade ‘A’ Quality & Grade ‘B’ Quality both are refurbished to our Gold Standard. The difference between Grade ‘A’ & Grade ‘B’ is:  our Grade ‘A’ computers are exceptionally good cosmetically with the occasional minor scratch & our Grade ‘B’ machines will have a few more scratches and blemishes but will perform just a well as the Grade ‘A’ machines. You can decide which grade would be best for your circumstances. Both grades receive the same high standard TLC from our technicians and you can have a similar specification installed on most machines. The full parts warranty is 6 months minimum on both grades. And, if you choose a Grade ‘B’ you will save even more £££s on your budget.
All of our refurbished IT equipment is either ex-corporate or ex-government and are tier one brands such as HP, Dell, Lenovo and Apple. When originally purchased they would have been to the highest build specification.

Our Gold Standard Refurbishment

Every computer that we sell is Freshly Prepared – Stock does not sit on the shelves gathering dust waiting for a buyer!
As soon as you place your order we will start to prepare your system. Your parts are selected and then an engineer with industry level experience will begin to assemble your system. Our ethos is to provide quality above all else, this is why we only use new or 100% certified components in your build.
Your computer is where your digital life is stored, something that is unique and precious. For this reason we believe it is paramount for us to build reliable and robust systems; no corners cut and putting you first. Once assembled, software is installed and all updates are applied. Your system is then optimised to run at peak performance then finely tested for a period of 24 hours in order to ensure extreme stability and durability. This testing surpasses that of the original factory specification; therefore we are ensuring that you receive a system that is far more compliant than a typical new one. Furthermore, we sincerely care about your needs and strive to deliver the quality that you deserve. This is all backed up with a  *12 month warranty or 6 months warranty on your PC’s hardware.  As soon as you open the box and plug your computer in you are ready to go!  Not happy with your purchase (unlikely!) No problem, we offer a **14 Day Money Back or PC Replacement guarantee.
We refurbish the equipment to the best possible standard, including:
  • Data-wiping to the highest government standard using Blancco Data Cleaner
  • Legal installation of new Windows 10 operating system with COA attached

This is exactly the same as if you buy a new item; the only difference is the price!
