Can highly recommend 'Macback' I had got the initial quote, which I was happy with. Once Macback had our MacBook back, they actually gave me more than quoted as the spec was better than I realised. They didn't have to tell me this, this was very honest of them and I really appreciated their honesty.

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!

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.

Time to turn you device in for cash!

sell mac

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 Device for sale

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.

General Questions

Q: Where is the best place to sell my Mac?

A:There are many options to consider when you want to sell your MacBook. You can sell it on social media, Ebay, or on Macback. Each option has positives and perhaps even some negatives.

If you try to sell your MacBook on Ebay, you might have a hard time selling it. If you’ve never sold anything on Ebay before, it’s notoriously difficult to get your first sale, especially on an item like a MacBook. People tend to be wary of technology sales on Ebay because they are afraid they’ll get scammed and someone will send them a fake product or one that doesn’t work. Ebay also takes a portion of your earnings for each sale.

Another option for selling your MacBook is social media. You can Tweet about your device and hope someone wants to buy it. But do you really want to take a chance that you send your MacBook to someone who ends up getting out of paying you? It can be nerve-wracking to trust someone you don’t know with a valuable item like a MacBook.

An option that many have chosen is to sell their MacBook on Macback. We’ve made the process super easy. We will come and get your device from your home office and offer you the best price you can get- guaranteed! That means you won’t have to worry about waiting for your MacBook to sell; you can get your money straightaway.

Q: How much can I sell my Mac for?

A:We look at a few different factors when we make an offer for a MacBook. To start with, we look at the wear and tear. Obviously, the better your MacBook looks, the more we can offer for it as better condition is more desirable to a future owner. Another consideration is the type of device and the technical specs. A mint condition MacBook with desirable tech specifications can fetch up to £1,800.
