Frequently Asked Questions

What MacBook models do you buy?

How do I know what my MacBook is worth?

We want you to be happy with your offer from GadgetGone. So before selling your damaged MacBook, 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 broken MacBook 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 laptop through Apple, you’ll receive your payout as an Apple gift card, not cash. It’s also important to note that, in most cases, any sort of physical damage will drop the value of your Apple trade-in significantly—oftentimes to $0

Some other popular places that will give you a quick MacBook 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.

Here are some typical examples of MacBook trade-in values with GadgetGone, Apple, and Best Buy at the time of writing (August 2020).

Can I sell my old MacBook even if it's broken?

Yes! GadgetGone accepts MacBooks in a variety of different conditions, from brand-new to broken. We’re the best place to sell your broken laptop because unlike other trade-in sites, we’ll pay you a fair price.

You can sell used MacBooks with a bad battery, a cracked or damaged display, booting issues, and other condition problems. You can even sell MacBooks that are water damaged or won’t turn on. No matter the issue, you’ll always get the most cash by selling your broken Macbook to GadgetGone.

Can I sell more than one MacBook?

Definitely! Heck, you can sell devices of all kinds to GadgetGone, not just MacBooks. Whether you have multiple MacBooks of the same model or a bunch 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 MacBook IT asset recovery.

Do I have to sell my used MacBook after I get a quote?

Nope! All of our quotes are obligation-free. You don’t have to ship your MacBook 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 laptop back to you for free—no questions asked.

How long do I have to ship my old MacBook?

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 MacBook within those 14 days, your offer amount is guaranteed.

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

What do I need to do before selling my broken MacBook?

Unsure of how to wipe a MacBook 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.
