I have received a tablet for my special needs daughter from ERA. My daughter is looking forward to watching her favourite shows on the tablet. It will be especially useful for her to use the tablet with her noise cancelling headphones to help her stay focused. Thank you so much ERA, you’re providing a wonderful service to the community.
Just to let you know every time your guys come here to work they are very courteous very professional and are a pleasure to work with them.
We were very happy with your service
I want to take a second to thank you and the rest of your team regarding how well you handled this situation. I feel appropriate to acknowledge the great effort you provided to have this mishap resolved. Also, I was pleased to converse with each one of you in such a professional fashion.
I will certainly come back to ERA when I get more items in need of a second life.
The guys who came to pick up stuff are very nice gentlemen and they managed to remove everything.
You were so helpful and I only had good feedback from our techs so it would be my pleasure to recommend you guys!
We are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers. It’s why we adhere to a strict procedure for data security.

All funds are used to benefit the organization and allow ERA to operate and provide low cost or free services throughout Canada.
