PowerMax Inc., an Apple Authorized Specialist and online destination for the latest in Apple products, as well as discontinued and used Macs and iPods, has launched new trade-in programs for both the iPhone and iPad. Staffed by the same experts who have evaluated and processed thousands of Mac and iPod trade-ins over the past 20 years - these new services extend PowerMax's offerings into the hottest segment of Apple's business - mobile devices.
PowerMax CEO Kevin Anderson says:
Let's face it - there's no industry today that changes as often as the electronics industry, especially with computers and handheld devices ... But moving from one generation to another can be a hassle, and risky. We make the process safe and easy. Plus, due to the quality of Apple products, we really have very few issues with the units that are traded in. We've built quite a name for ourselves with our selection of used Macs. It was a natural fit for us to extend these programs to the iPhone and iPad.
Compared to companies offering dedicated iPhone & iPad trade-in/upgrades for cash, PowerMax can offer considerably more aggressive trade-in valuations (often 10-15% higher) on every iPhone and iPad model - new or used - because the credits are applied to purchases made through PowerMax.
As an Apple authorized reseller PowerMax offers all the latest Apple products - along with tens of thousands of other products - simplifying the process of trading in an iPhone or iPad to purchase accessories or another gadget. Since traded-in iPhones and iPads will be refurbished and resold by PowerMax, the used devices stay out of the waste stream, promoting reuse and provide a more cost-effective option for consumers looking to save on an iPhone or iPad.
The trade-in process is quick and easy - with device condition and market conditions affecting trade-in values.
PowerMax customers visit the Trade-in Program page, select a device - iPad, iPhone, iPod or Mac computer, enter the model, specs, condition and any original accessories that may be included in the trade, and submit contact information via web form.
A PowerMax trade-in expert responds to the submission with a quoted value for the device. If the customer agrees to the quoted value, they're given instructions on sending it into PowerMax. When received, an Apple product expert performs a thorough evaluation and verifies the value and condition of the device. Once a device is accepted, trade-in credits can be issued in two ways:
1) via check or credit card reimbursement if a customer has already made a purchase through PowerMax
2) held on account for future purchases
