NGOS & SCHOOLS

COMPUTERS FOR NGOS, NONPROFITS AND SCHOOLS WORLDWIDE

Since 1999 we have shipped tens of thousands of computers to NGOs of computers to organizations in 40 countries and all 50 states. Shipments include those to schools in Belize, Paraguay and El Salvador, NGOs in Uganda and Kenya and disaster relief projects in Haiti, Pakistan and Chile. We are specialist in computer export and can ship by sea and air from small boxes to large ocean container loads.

InterConnection operates a state-of-the-art computer refurbishing plant in Seattle, Washington. Our hands-on and personally managed approach ensures all computers meet the highest quality control standards. All computers are cleaned, upgraded, and pass a series of documented tests before they are shipped. Our goal is to ensure that all computers will be reliable and usable for a long time.

InterConnection is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher which means all computers can come with new Windows 10 Professional and Microsoft Office licenses.

Benefits of receiving computers with pre-installed Windows and Office:

  • Receive Microsoft critical updates. Updates are not available if un-licensed Windows is installed.
  • All driver software is pre-installed.
  • Operating system installs ensures the functionality of the computer.
  • Microsoft Office is the most widely used productivity application in the world.
  • Anti-virus, Google Chrome and other programs including Khan Academy and Wikipedia offline can also be pre-installed.

ORDER PROCESS:

  •  Fill out the application form on this webpage.
  •  Once the details of the order are finalized you will be sent an invoice. A 50% down-payment is required to initiate the order. InterConnection is not a funding agency and can’t provide any help with costs nor can we offer credit terms. Payment from international recipients is by bank wire only.
  •  Order fulfillment period depends on the quantity of computers ordered. Orders less than 20 units usually ship in a week. Ocean container loads of 400 or more units will require at least a month to prepare.
  •  When the order is completed and ready to ship you will be required to make any remaining payments, including payments for shipping.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING
Bulk orders are shipped from our warehouse in Seattle to any destination in the U.S. Orders usually ship on pallets via commercial fright carriers. Shipping can be arranged by the recipient or by InterConnection.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Once the computers are packaged and ready for shipment we will have the information necessary to make up the Bill of Lading and Commercial Shipping Invoice. These documents are needed to import computers. Documents will be mailed to the recipient via a courier, such as Federal Express, or an “express release” will be authorized which means documents will be issued in-country.  We recommend contacting a customs broker prior to initiating any shipment to avoid unexpected charges. Certain countries have high taxes on used computers and some countries don’t allow the import of used computers. It is the importers responsibility to investigate any potential import issues.

Be aware that transport from the port of entry to the destination may not be on high quality roads. There is less control over product transport once it leaves the port and port to door transport is when most damage occurs to the computers. InterConnection is not responsible for damage that occurs during international shipment and port to door transport.
