The reception of non-compliant productshowever, they pushed them to deepen their journey in the reconditioning procedures, with the idea of trying to offer the customer that quality that they themselves sought in the shopping experience.
From here it was born CertiDeala site that deals with the resale of smartphone and tablet refurbished, all with warranty lasting for 24 monthsand certified by a team of specialists within the proprietary laboratory, the Certi-Lab.
