Reviews about our service
It is time to sell your Mac now!
Have you been holding on to your Mac for some time now because you just aren’t quite sure what to do with it? You probably would like to update to a newer model Mac, but you don’t want to get rid of yours when there is nothing wrong with it besides running a little slower than you’d like.
It’s normal to feel this way. Many people hold on to their computers as long as they are operational because they don’t like the idea of being wasteful and getting rid of a device just because it’s not in its prime. Instead of holding on to your Mac, which no longer suits you, you can turn it in for cash.
When you send in your Mac computer to us, we refurbish it, which means wiping it clean of all of your personal data, and get it into the hands of a new owner. This keeps a working device out of a rubbish bin and makes it possible for it to continue to be of benefit. Plus, you will earn some cash towards that newer Mac you desire. That is a win-win situation and definitely worth your time to consider.
You can sell your Mac for up to £600. Quote now

Preparing your Mac for sale
- 1 - Create a backup
- 2 - Sign out of iTunes
- 3 - Sign out of iCloud
- 4 - Sign out of iMessage
- 5 - Erase and reinstall OS X
Before your send us your Mac, it is a good idea to make a backup of your information. A backup is created as an extra copy of the file on your computer so that you can transfer these files to your new computer and continue to have access to them long after your Mac is gone.
There are a few different ways to do a backup on your computer. One of the most common ways is to use iCloud to backup your documents, music, calendars, photos, and anything else you want to keep from your Mac.
Backing up your computer is a fairly simple, straightforward process. However, if you would rather not attempt to do it on your own you can hire someone to do it for you at a very reasonable price.
After you have created a backup of the files on your Mac, you will want to make sure that you sign out of iTunes. To do so, open iTunes. On the menu bar at the top of the screen, choose “store”. Next, choose Deauthorise this Computer. Once you have entered your Apple ID and password, you should click Deauthorise to complete the process of signing out of iTunes.
When you deauthorise your computer, you are removing access to the content you purchased from iTunes while you owned your Mac. This means that the next person who receives your Mac will not be able to access any of your movies, music, books, or other content so it is a pretty important step to complete.
Before starting, you will need to archive or make copies of your iCloud data if you use any iCloud features on your Mac like Find my Mac.
The next step is to go to the Apple menu and select System Preferences. Then click iCloud and uncheck the Find My Mac checkbox. Lastly, sign out of iCloud. Go to System Preferences where you should click iCloud and sign out. You will be asked whether you want to remove iCloud data from your Mac.
Remember, when you sign out of iCloud, you are not removing data from your iCloud account. You are only removing data from your Mac so the next owner will not have access to it. Your iCloud data will remain safe in the cloud and you will be able to access it again once you log into another device using the same Apple ID.
This is a short, easy step to be taken if your Mac is using the OS X Mountain Lion or later. If not, you will not have to do this step.
If you are using the OS X Mountain Lion or later, go to the Messages app and click on Preferences. Next, select accounts and select your iMessage account. Finally, click Sign Out.
This is the final step you should take if you are selling your Mac. Before you start, make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
Restart your Mac. When you hear the startup sound, hold Command and R keys to go to OS X Recovery. Then, select Disk Utility and Continue. Select the name of your startup disk and click the Erase tab. To erase the drive, click Security Options and choose an erase method before clicking OK.
When you see the format pop-up menu, choose Mac OS Extended. Type a disk name and then click Erase. After the drive has been erased, you can close the Disk Utility window.
Next, choose a network from the Wi-Fi menu if you are not connected to the Internet any longer. Choose the option Reinstall OS X. You can next click Continue, and follow the directions on the screen to finish reinstallation.
