We are the fastest growing marketplace for refurbished products in the German-speaking markets. Our products are up to 40% cheaper and 100% more sustainable. They are restored using 40 separate steps, after which they function, look and feel brand-new.
We provide a better alternative to new and used products. Better still: Thanks to our refurbed Carefree-Package, our customers enjoy a risk-free experience.
Our vision is to establish the idea of refurbed across all of Europe and do our part for a more sustainable world.
Our story began with our founder Peter buying an iPhone via a website for secondhand products. Just a few weeks after his purchase, the phone died and, in absence of a warranty, Peter had to pay the full cost of having his phone repaired.
So who is to blame? Some might say that Peter should have been aware of the risk. But he had good reasons to decide against buying a brand-new device.
Many people are unaware of just how harmful new electronic devices are to the environment, the production of which lead to CO₂-emissions and the use of valuable resources. On top of that, when a device is no longer functioning like-new, it is often simply thrown out – leaving behind electronic waste, which is tricky to safely dispose.
And so the idea of refurbed was born: a platform for refurbished products that meet an ambitious set of criteria with regards to safety, quality and their warranty. This empowers consumers to conduct their purchases in an easier, risk-free and sustainable manner.
Teaming up with Kilian and Jürgen, refurbed was founded in Vienna in 2017.
Since then, the company has passed many milestones, and has amassed tens of thousands of satisfied customers, hundreds of positive reviews as well as having successfully taken part in the Austrian TV show equivalent of "Dragons Den", "2 Minuten, 2 Millionen".
