Ok..I want to sell some things, namely my Mac and some other stuff. <br><br>My question is..which way would I get the most money?<br><br>1. Ebay with a reserved price? Any helpful hints/tips with eBay would be nice.<br>2. PowerMax has offered me $1039 for my mac alone..but I have to ship it to them and they say that due to high demand for trade-in's, it would take 4-6 weeks for them to "test" my mac. <br>3. uh..can't think of any other option..<br><br>
Donation to your local school or charity = tax deduction.<br><br>Run an ad in your local paper under computers for sale is always simple compared to shipping it some where.<br><br>Contact your local "MUG" but you might have to join that group.<br><br>
Well if you don't get the price don't sell.<br>Try them both - eBay and the local ad, pick whats best for you. Play them at the same time.<br><br>The donation works for me, because I do need the tax break.<br>I simply call them and they say what ya want for it. I drop it off - they write me a donation receipt and I give that to my CPA. Done deal.<br><br>Like what Bigger says if its a local sale, make sure you tell them that the sale is (as is condition) you don't want to be a tech support - - Well not unless its a Hot MacBabe.<br><br>
I was just too nice...they kept calling me...first CPU they had. I finally had to ask them not to call...after several months...then saw them at store later...I did give the a paper that stated, in big letters, the sale was final.<br><br>
Hey you are a big guy.<br>I too will help a newbie - but it does get to a point, to where you feel that your are being taken advantage of.<br><br>Like me atlease I will try to fix or learn something myself before I even ask this forum.<br><br>
The PowerMax option is probably the best... Ebay is a tricky thing... many times people won't buy from someone who doesn't have a lot of good "feedback" already, so if you've never sold anything you *may* have a hard time. Then, putting a reserve on it also tends to sour some potential buyers...<br><br>Another option you might try is MacSolutions. They buy and sell Macs and are very reasonbably priced (I always buy my RAM from them). You can call or fax to get a price quote and many times they will even match price of other companies.<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!
