Sell Your Device

Upgraded to the latest and greatest gadget? We’ll buy your old one!

We’re always looking to purchase pre-loved devices to refurbish and re-stock in our store. So avoid the online-auction hassle: bring your device in and we’ll make you an offer.

Drop your device off in-store

Legally, we need to verify you are who you say you are, so unfortunately we can’t accept couriered in devices.

We’ll inspect, test, and appraise your device

We’ll give you a call with a quote

If you’re not happy with our offer, no problem, simply come in to collect your device.

We’ll pay direct to your bank account

What do I need to bring?

We need the device and valid photo ID, such as a New Zealand Drivers License or Passport.

Please ensure you bring any peripherals you would like to sell, such as chargers, power cables, keyboards and mice at the same time as this will affect the offer we are able to make.

What devices do you buy?

We are generally interested in Apple device models no older than 5-6 years old. We also purchase most models of computer, smartphone, and tablet, but we are mainly interested in Apple devices.

iOS devices must have "Find my iPhone" turned off before we can purchase them. We cannot buy iCloud locked devices under any circumstance.

How long does the process take?

In general, we need around 3-4 working days to fully inspect your device and prepare an offer.
