Our Mission


Our goal is to provide you with high quality refurbished computer hardware that is fully warrantied, at a much lower cost than buying new and ultimately reducing the amount of IT equipment that goes to landfill.

"I would like to take this opportunity to introduce Rapid IT Ltd to you. We are a proud family company run by myself, Jack Bannister and my father, David Bannister. We have over 20 years’ combined experience of providing high quality refurbished computer hardware across multiple market sectors.

Our commitment to providing exceptional customer service is paramount and at the heart of our business, a testament to this are the many long standing relationships we have built up over many years, our aim is to be your partner of choice.

We offer impartial advice on solutions that fit not force, enabling you to maximise your IT budget whilst giving reassurance that the hardware will be fully warrantied and supplied with a brand new SSD and up to date Microsoft OS.

We are so confident in the equipment we supply that we invite you to try a free demo machine in order for you to see just how good our refurbished PCs and laptops are."
