Terms & Conditions

We can only assign a price to buyback items that have value. If a product is too old or in condition considered too poor to refurbish, we may be unable to pay for it. We can, however, still collect and data erase any products free-of-charge if there is a sufficient quantity.

Please be as accurate and as detailed as possible when telling us about your products as this can greatly affect the buyback valuation we provide. If you are unsure about what to include or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

To secure the available trade in value your device needs to meet the following grade criteria:

  • The device should be no older than 7 years
  • The device works as it should. It should power on/off, charges and is fully functional with no damage or faults
  • The device should have a fully functioning keyboard and trackpad with no missing keys (laptop)
  • The casing/housing should not be cracked, chipped, dented, bent or broken
  • The device will have no etching, engraving or non-removable asset tags
  • The display should be fully functioning, have no cracks, not smashed, no pixel damage, white spots or discolouration
  • The battery should charge and be in good health
  • The device should not be BIOS locked or password protected. Any AppleID or iCloud accounts and Google accounts must be removed,
  • Be supplied with an AC power adapter

Devices that don’t meet the above grading criteria can still be traded in, however the value may be adjusted accordingly. You can recycle as many old devices as you wish. If the value exceeds the required amount, we will give you additional STEM Rewards to match the difference.
