Helping you understand our products and service
As part of the comprehensive refurbishment process we conduct on the products we sell, the batteries are tested to determine the remaining expected life they have remaining in them. If any tested battery is found to be below 80%, then it is removed and replaced.
Each item is priced competitively against the current market. We take into account the age, performance and condition to provide an appropriate price. For example, a much newer 2015 year retina MacBook Pro in mint condition will be priced considerably higher than a 2009 MacBook Pro with scratches in its base or lid.

When purchasing any Mac from us, we include everything you need to get going. For example, all Apple Laptops come with the applicable charger for that model as well as a UK power plug. If you’re based in an EU country, an EU plug is included by default. If you’re purchasing an iMac the same is applied that a UK or EU power cable is included with the system.
Accessories such as keyboards and mice are sold separately, but you will find all the applicable models on the product bag so you can easily add them to your cart if required.
If you would like a specific configuration of a system that is not available on the product you would like, please ask one of our sales team, and they can go through your requirements. It may be that the system you would like cannot be configured to that specification or the parts you would like are not held in stock. We will happily order parts in for bespoke specification where available.
For Mac Pro customers this includes PCI-e cards, RAID setups and other bespoke equipment which we can set up for you.

For customers not on the mainland or in the far areas of Europe we do not provide shipping on selected product lines. This is generally due to the couriers handling of the packages and causing glass breakages of items when travelling overseas. We have done our utmost to ensure this doesn’t happen using specially designed retention packaging, but for specific locations, it is not commercially viable for us to ship to the address.
This is up to the courier’s discretion. However, we do opt for our packages not to be delivered to a neighbour. We are not liable for the loss of an item if the item is delivered to an incorrect address. Please see the “What if I’m not in to sign for my item?” section for more details about package delivery.
All deliveries are sent on a signed for service, and someone has to be in to receive the package. If there is no one to sign at the address when our courier makes the delivery, a note is left in the mailbox. Another attempt to deliver will be made the next day. A total of three attempts to deliver will be made. If delivery is not possible, the package will be returned to us. When you find the courier note in your mailbox, you can contact them to arrange another delivery address if the next day is not suitable.
We aim to dispatch every order within 24 hours of order placement. Orders placed on a Friday will be dispatched the following Monday as we are closed during the weekend.
Our offices are closed during bank holidays and other national holidays such as Christmas so the dispatch and delivery of items during these periods will be slightly delayed. Our estimated delivery dates displayed on products and checkout are correctly adjusted to account for these holidays.
Due to the changing, unknown value in import charges and the effect that it has had on customers we are not able to deliver outside of the UK & Ireland. Bulk orders for business customers is still available.
