3Gorillas.com has always been about providing maximum value and service to our customers. We also share a sense of value about preserving our Earth, and being part of the solution.
A lot of companies talk about caring for the planet, but we wanted to go a step beyond just talking about it. We have put this care into action by being a "responsible retailer" and running our business around a socially conscious set of values.
We think we can help save the planet and save you money at the same time!
Reclaim, Refurbish, and Resell
One big pet-peeve of ours is the amount of product waste that ends up in landfills. Millions of tons of working products are dumped in landfills because they don't fit an accounting model to handle them otherwise. Would you believe that some companies destroy products that still function just fine?
Even worse is when these products are shipped overseas to other countries that do not put a priority on proper disposal of these items. Once these items out-live their lifecycle they are dumped in places that would be illegal here in the United States.
We want to make this a thing of the past.
We acquire products that can be re-claimed and remanufactured into like-new products. We take those products and conduct a thorough evaluation and refurbishment process so that they perform as new or better. (Yes, with some tweaks a product can be made BETTER than when it was new.) We are able to resell these products to cost-conscious consumers who get an outstanding value.
Retain, Re-Market, and Resell
We acquire new products that would typically end up overseas where they may be disposed of in unsafe ways. We are able to re-market these products through relationships with other retailers or through product bundling. This provides consumers with a new product at a great price, and eliminates wasteful shipping and environmentally disastrous practices.
We also acquire high-value new products from manufacturers who follow our safe standards for product manufacturing and can provide volume discounts that we can pass on to you. We offer brands that meet our strict quality standards so that our customers know they are getting an item that will last, is made from environmentally-safe materials, and not end up in a landfill anytime soon.
We make it easy to be "green".
