Q: Why do you offer this service (buying broken laptops for cash)?  What do you do with my used laptop?
A: We are not going to mislead you here : we are a business and businesses have to make a profit. We have found a way to make a profit whilst simultaneously helping to protect the environment by preventing all these old broken machines going to landfill by recycling and reusing all the parts, if the laptop itself cannot be fixed and put to good use.

Q: What do you do with my used laptop?
A: Once we have received your used Laptop firstly  we securely erase all personal data, then we determine its condition. If we determine it is economically viable to fix your laptop then we do so and then we will sell your laptop through a variety of outlets. If the laptop is beyond economical repair we either break it down for the parts or sell it to someone who will break it down for the parts. Nothing goes to landfill. 

Q: Why Should I sell Laptops to Sell My Broken Laptop?
A:Sell My Broken Laptop will give you the best price whilst guaranteeing that your data is securely destroyed so that even the most determined of hackers could not recover any of your data from your laptop. We pay out faster than any other laptop recycling company.  We take the hassle out of selling used Laptops by providing free shipping, a guaranteed price, and great customer service. Don’t delay because the value of a used Laptop declines  rapidly over time, so the sooner you sell yours the better.
