Why buy second hand?

Pros and cons of buying second-hand Apple products

The decision of buying a second-hand Apple product over a brand new one often comes down to the price, it’s simply a lot cheaper. However, a factor that is often overlooked is that it’s also a very environmentally friendly way of acquiring a product, which limits our collective negative impact on our treasured planet. Thinking, and indeed ‘acting green’ is becoming more and more prevalent in our society and we wholeheartedly encourage it!

There is always an element of uncertainty when buying a second-hand product. You might wonder where the product has previously been, if there is something wrong with it and how long it will serve you. These are all valid concerns which might sway you away from buying a second-hand product. However, we have gone to great lengths in order to address your worries and ease your mind.

You probably already know that Apple products are known for their quality and longevity, which means the products we source are almost always in a great condition. Furthermore, as soon as a product comes in, our Apple-certified technicians conduct numerous tests in order to make sure that the product is fully functional and meets all established standards. Any components that are showing signs of ‘giving up’ are swiftly replaced to ensure the product’s full functionality in the future. In short, the product is restored to a state as close as possible to that of a brand new product.

As for the question of where the product has previously been, our sourcing procedures are set up in a way that allows us to detect and counteract attempted fraud and other foul-play. We always do our best to establish the exact origin of every product we buy to minimize the risk for everyone involved.

We also offer our current and potential customers pre-sale and post sale support through chat, e-mail and telephone. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

In conclusion, we feel very confident about the products and services that we provide. To show that this is not mere empty words we provide warranty on every product that we sell.

Do you really need the latest gadget?

Every year Apple comes out with a couple new products, usually upgraded versions of a previous model with improved performance and a few new functions. However, most of us only use a small fraction of an Apple product’s capacity and could easily make due with an older model. Instead of buying a brand new product, which is quite expensive, you should consider the alternative of buying a refurbished Apple product that will most likely serve your needs just as well, at a fraction of the price. Granted, you might miss out on the ‘cool-factor’ which is associated with owning the latest Apple gadget, but the ‘cool-factor’ only lasts until Apple releases their next product. We would argue that as long as a product can satisfy all your technical needs you are better off buying a refurbished product!
