MacBook Pro was collected on Friday, message to say it arrived on Monday, contacted Tuesday to say there was a fault with the DVD drive on the Mac, we came to an agreement over the phone and payment in my bank by Wednesday. Brilliant company to deal with, no hassle at all.

Superb service. Was really concerned about who to trust with my beloved MacBook Pro. Read a lot of reviews and finally plumped for MacBack as a) they offered one of the highest prices and had a very easy-to-complete online form, b) they send out DPD as a courier to you to collect (who are the best IMO) and who give you a receipt there and then, and c) they had excellent reviews online. Also, they respond to emails promptly AND answer the phone (most places don't!) and a lovely man was able to help me with a concern I had re OS install after erasing the built-in harddrive. He was very knowledgable about Macs (tick!) and really friendly. The courier came on Thursday afternoon, I received confirmation of Grade C condition and amount payable on Tuesday and the cash was in my bank the next day. Couldn't praise them more. Thank you!

I wanted a new computer but I couldn’t justify getting one when I had one that worked perfectly well, even though it was a few years old. I heard about this company, so I figured if I could get a little cash for my old Mac I could get a new one. Well sure enough, I sent in my old mac and they sent me a check. I am now the proud oner of a new Macbook!

Great, efficient service. Prompt reply to e-mails and helpful telephone advice from Charles 🙂 Courier excellent - box for my laptop was delivered to my work address within 2 days and laptop picked up the next day from a local store. Money for my traded-in laptop was in my account the same day my laptop was checked. Very happy with the customer service and would definitely recommend MacBack 🙂

These guys are the best. They very quickly gave me a very fair quote online, without me having to supply an email address. Also they appeared to be highest price. Charles was most helpful and promptly and professionally assisted me through the whole process. The devices were picked up by UPS, when I wanted, and MacBack supplied a prepaid label to apply to the packaging. They even supplied an outer box if needed. I was kept totally informed on the progress of the delivery and result of the engineers findings. The payment was immediately paid into my bank account. A FIRST CLASS experience.

If you are preparing your iPhone to sell, there are some steps you need to follow. You want to get rid of all of your personal information properly to get your device ready for the next owner.
If your device runs iOS 10, make sure you sign out of iCloud before you start erasing your device or else you can delete your content from iCloud as well as any other devices you have in iCloud such as your iPad.
To start with, make sure you unpair your iPhone with any other devices like your Apple Watch. Next, you should back up your iOS devices. Got to settings and iCloud. Scroll down until you see Sign Out. Note: if you have iOS 7 or earlier you will tap Delete Account.

Next, tap sign out and then Delete from My iPhone. You will need to enter your password to do this.

For your next step, go back to settings and tap General, Reset, and Erase All Content. You might have to use your Apple ID and password if you have previously turned on Find My iPhone. If you are prompted to enter your device passcode or Restrictions passcode, go ahead and enter it and then press Erase.
After following these steps, you are ready to sell your device for another owner to enjoy.
