How do I know what my Mac Mini is worth?

We want you to be happy with your offer from GadgetGone. So before selling your Mac Mini, it’s a good idea to get multiple price quotes to make sure you’re getting the best trade-in value for resale.

Aside from getting your instant GadgetGone offer, a great way to assess the potential value of your used Mac Mini is by taking a look at Apple’s trade-in page. While Apple’s offers are generally on the lower end, it will give you a good baseline to check the fair market value. Keep in mind if you choose to sell your computer through Apple, you’ll receive your payout as an Apple gift card, not cash.

Some other popular places that will give you a quick Mac Mini valuation include Best Buy and Gazelle. Remember, if you find a better price from any of these companies, GadgetGone will beat it with our PriceMatch+ Guarantee. Just message us to let us know the company you’d like to price match.

You can sell old Mac Mini with a bad hard drive, booting issues, and other condition problems. You can even sell used Mac Mini’s that are water damaged or won’t turn on. No matter the issue, you’ll always get the most cash by selling your broken Mac Mini to GadgetGone.

Can I sell more than one Mac Mini?

Definitely! Heck, you can sell devices of all kinds to GadgetGone, not just Mac Minis. Whether you have multiple Mac Minis of the same model or a of different models, you can add any quantity necessary to your cart when getting your initial quote. We even accept bulk trade-ins from wholesale sellers or companies looking for Mac Computer IT asset recovery.

Do I have to sell my Mac Mini after I get a quote?

Nope! All of our quotes are obligation-free. You don’t have to ship your Mac Mini unless you’re happy with the amount we’ve offered. And if for some reason you change your mind after sending it in, we’ll mail your used computer back to you for free—no questions asked.

How long do I have to ship my old Mac Mini?

Your quote is locked in for 14 days from the time you check out on our website. As long as the USPS tracking number shows you shipped your used Mac Mini within those 14 days, your offer amount is guaranteed.

You can still ship your Mac Mini after the 14-day, price-lock period (some of our customers wait 30 days or more); however, your computer will be subject to whatever our current pricing is at the time of evaluation. Earlier is always better, but feel free to ship your Mac Mini whenever you’re ready to sell!

What do I need to do before selling my used Mac Mini?

Unsure of how to wipe a Mac Mini to sell? Just follow these easy steps:

1.  Back it up using Time Machine and an external hard drive.

2.  Sign out of all your accounts and unpair your Bluetooth devices.

3.  Format (erase) your hard drive.

4.  Reinstall a fresh, new copy of macOS.
