Selling Your Laptop in the UK – the right way

Posted On December 23, 2014

Sales and marketing are an art form; presenting a product in the best light (in every sense) and then convincing someone to pay the price you want for it are not skills that come naturally to all.

There are a number of different sales routes to consider when selling an old laptop; some require more sales and marketing skills than others. You can sell your laptop privately at a car boot sale, on eBay or using Freeads style websites or newspapers. Or you can also consider using a company which offers a reverse ecommerce or recycling service for laptops; just like will offer to buy your car for a fixed price, companies like will offer to buy your laptop. These companies attempt to take away the hassle, time and effort required to sell items privately, so before deciding how you’ll sell your laptop, let’s look at what exactly is involved in using each of the different methods.

Car Boot Sale
A key factor in setting the price of an item is its demand; the more people that are interested in buying your item, the higher you can set the price (within reason). The converse is also true; if there are a low number of interested parties, the price must be set lower in order to ensure demand.

Most car boot sale offer a poor number people interesting in buying a laptop and therefore we’d expect to have to set the price we ask for our laptop very low if we wish to sell it.

eBay and Similar.
eBay may sometimes seem like an online car boot sale but it differs from any physical market place in one key areas; Potential Customers. eBay is 1000’s of times bigger than any car boot sale and your laptop falls in to one of the biggest categories there is, however, this means standing out from the crowd requires a professional listing, high volume and quality of feedback as well as the time to answer questions and deal with potential non-paying winning bidders.

Reserve Ecommerce / Cash in your Gadgets

They do this will the absolute minimum of technical information and will provide all the help you need at all stages of the process. The price includes a free courier collection, complete data wiping of the hard drive and a 100% satisfaction guarantee – should they be forced to revise the price offered for any reason and you are not entirely satisfied, they’ll return the laptop completely free of charge.
