Why is ADTRAN using Market Velocity? ADTRAN 's Partnership with Market Velocity provides a complete trade-in solution for our customers. Together we have developed a customized ADTRAN program that is always available via the Internet. Market Velocity specializes in remarketing, refurbishing, and dispositioning pre-owned equipment and can provide the maximum values for customers interested in updating to new ADTRAN equipment.
Who can use the ADTRAN Trade-In Program?Any end user or reseller acting on behalf of an end user with eligible pre-owned trade-in product(s) and purchasing new eligible ADTRAN product can access and use the ADTRAN Trade-In Program directly at http://adtran.tradeups.com.
How do I use the ADTRAN Trade-In Program?You may either register to establish a logon ID, or use guest access to skip the registration process. (Note that you will need to register in order to complete a trade on the website.) A key advantage of registering is the ability to save multiple quote lists for later access. Your saved quote list will automatically be updated with the current trade-in values. Customers, ADTRAN channel partners, or ADTRAN sales representative will be able to access the ADTRAN Trade-In Program web site, enter the equipment to be traded, and receive a quote for the value of the equipment. From that point, the user can decide whether or not to continue working through the process to ship pre-owned product back to Market Velocity. If a customer accepts the quote and chooses to trade-in their pre-owned equipment, they will need to show proof of their new ADTRAN product purchase in order to receive their redemption check.
Do I have to register to use the ADTRAN Trade-In Program web site?No, you may enter as a guest by selecting one of the links at the bottom of the home page to receive an instant quote but you must register in order to complete a trade on the web site.
Can an ADTRAN Reseller participate on behalf of an end-user customer or themselves? Yes. However, if the customer decides to engage in the trade-in process, it is best to direct the customer to the web site in order to conduct the transaction themselves. The relationship is between Market Velocity and the user of the program. If an ADTRAN authorized reseller is accepting these Terms and Conditions, the reseller is responsible for complying with all program requirements even if the end-user is designated to receive the trade-in redemption check.
What products are eligible to participate in ADTRAN's Trade-In Program?Any ADTRAN or approved competitor networking or IP telephony equipment in the approved lists of products are eligible for a trade-in rebate upon the purchase of an approved ADTRAN inter-networking or IP Telephony product. The eligible trade-in product list is included in the Terms and Conditions page.
What ADTRAN products qualify as a "new purchase" for the trade-in program?Any ADTRAN inter networking or IP Telephony product in the approved product list is acceptable for the new equipment purchased. The eligible new purchase models are included in the Terms and Conditions page.
Can I save the information I enter to reference later? As a registered user of the ADTRAN Trade-In Program you have the ability to save multiple quote lists and reference or update them as needed. To access a saved quote, you must sign in and then choose "View Quotes" from the left navigational bar.
How are the trade-in rebate values determined?The values stated in the ADTRAN Trade-In Program for ADTRAN equipment is determined from a pricing rebate structure based on the original value of the product and the condition of the unit returned.
For competitor's equipment, the trade-in value is based on the value in the pre-owned or secondary marketplace also known as Fair Market Value (FMV). Market Velocity maintains relationships with dozens of re-marketers throughout North America and also maintains a proprietary pricing database which feeds the ADTRAN Trade-In Program website. We pass along whatever the re-marketers will pay for the pre-owned equipment o the customer. It is best to think of the trade-in value as the pre-owned wholesale value.
How is the money for the trade disbursed?All redemption checks are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service to the address designated in your transaction. Market Velocity, Inc. will issue your redemption check approximately 45 days after receipt and inspection of your trade-in product and validation of your proof of purchase, whichever is later. If you need assistance, please contact customer service at email@example.com.
Do I have to purchase my new product via Market Velocity? No. Market Velocity only needs to have proof that a new ADTRAN product was purchased. The program user can purchase direct from ADTRAN or from an authorized ADTRAN reseller or authorized dealer.
What if the condition of my product is different from what I represented when initiating my trade-in? To receive your redemption check, you must accurately state your current product's condition. Market Velocity will perform an inspection upon receipt of your product. If the product's condition differs materially from that which you described, Market Velocity reserves the right to re-price your transaction quote using the same condition parameters originally available to you. You agree to state product conditions accurately and to the best of your ability based on the guidelines posted on this site. Packing and shipping recommendations should be followed in order to avoid possible damage or loss. If you follow the above packing guidelines and instructions, the product should arrive in the same condition as when it left your site. If the product is damaged during shipping and there is visible damage to the packing materials (box is dented, ripped, smashed, etc.), Market Velocity will take responsibility for resolving any claims with the courier. If the packing is intact, but the product is not in the condition stated by you in the quote process, Market Velocity will contact you to advise you of the adjusted quote value. If your current product(s) were received and through the inspection process, it was determined that the product condition was misrepresented by you, and there is no trade value, (also see "Determining Values"). Market Velocity reserves the right to charge you a recycling fee for the disposition of this product. If the product can be returned to you, you will be responsible for any and all associated shipping costs.
Who pays for shipping?Shipping and handling fees will be deducted from the trade-in value.

How do I ship my product? During the trade-in process, you will be asked for the email address where you would like your shipping instructions emailed.

If you are shipping multiple items, please package each item individually and use the appropriate shipping label for each item. It is important to use the correct shipping label/placard for each individual item, as the label/placard is used to expedite tracking, identification and increase the speed of processing. You have 30 days from the day you completed your on-line trade to return the product. The expiration date will appear on the shipping label in the "Reference # field" and as "Expiration date of the trade-in" on the shipping placard. If you experience technical difficulty in printing these items or you lose your shipping instructions email, please contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
