Our Commitment to our Customers

We are here to be a resource for you. 
We have an incredible team with well over 125 years of combined experience; that includes professional backgrounds ranging from school district administration, technology and public information officers, and many who worked directly for Apple. Our team has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise to help you, as together we navigate through this time of uncertainty.

Ways we can help
We can provide immediate funds for your older Apple devices. Our goal, like yours, is to help bridge the technology equity gap for your students, while they embrace a new classroom experience through virtual learning. We’ve seen an increase in the secondary market for certain older Apple devices and want to pass that along to you.

We have a dedicated team ready to provide you with funds at pick-up to help offset any deficits you are experiencing as a result of schools being closed or to go towards your virtual learning efforts.
