    Buying Computer Parts and Laptops for Greater than Scrap Value

    I'm glad to be back, helping the community! I've completed a move to our new facility, and we're ready for your stuff!

    I look forward to working with you! We purchase a lot of more than scrap value parts, including CPUs, RAM, and HDDs. We also purchase graphics cards and complete laptops! Feel free to PM me anytime, or you can E-Mail me here. I can also chat with you via telephone or text messaging if you like, but Wyoming cell service is notoriously bad.



    Prices Current, As of January 16th, 2019:

    In the spreadsheet below is a list of most of what we are purchasing for greater than scrap value. We are looking for working items in good shape. I test all items, and they must be in working order to receive these prices. Failed items will be paid at our current scrap prices. Items will be paid at the prices effective on the day that your lot is received. We try not to change prices too often. You can view prices below. There is a copy of the packing slip for download, or a fillable one in the spreadsheet if you'd prefer. Please contact me to obtain your lot number

    Click Here for Current Pricing!

    Please click here for packing slip! Please place a copy in each box you send

    For some lots, we help with shipping. Please ask for details! All lots need to be approved before sending them- there is only one me. Please do not give me a massive heart attack with a mega lot randomly arriving at the door. Please let me know ahead of time, so I can make my schedule around it, so your lot is tested as quickly as possible. For larger lots, I cannot recommend our resident freight shipper on the forum (You all know who I'm talking about!) highly enough! If you ship a pallet, I'll pick it up at the NPT freight terminal, so there is no charge for liftgate service


    The fun part (Well, for you at least ) : We pay either through PayPal or by money order- your choice! Please note that there is a $5.00 fee deducted for payments sent via money order to cover the cost of the money order and postage. For PayPal payments, you are liable for all fees. We cannot guarantee PayPal fee costs. We cannot send payment to anyone other than yourself or the company that you represent- no third parties!

    Prices are subject to change without notice. All lots are paid out at the rates in effect on the date that they are received, not the day that they are postmarked. Shipping reimbursement or prepayment is handled on a case-by-case basis. All boxes need to have an inventory list with your name, SMF username (If you have one), lot number, preferred payment method (PayPal or Money Order), the address for payment to be made to, and an E-Mail that can be used to contact you. We have a nice little form that you can use for just that!

    I'm proud to have worked with many of the same clients for the last few years, and I look forward to working with you too!

    It's great to be back! I cannot confirm or deny the sentiment of Metalbestos' post, but I will try my best!

    For laptops, how do ones with locked bios get handled?

    The short answer: It depends on the model

    The longer answer: Most of the computers I refurbish are sold locally, to people who don't even know what a BIOS is. If the BIOS is locked, but nothing is disabled (Such as WiFi or USB ports) and if I can install Windows on it without problems, it's a working PC and is good to go. If the BIOS is locked and needs to be unlocked, but can be unlocked with a little work, we dock for that. If it's locked, and the only way to make the laptop usable is through a motherboard replacement, it's a parts machine (May still be more than scrap, but that depends for model again of course)

    I know you deal in higher volumes, so I'm assuming you're looking at a few machines that are the same model and BIOS?

    *Overdue review(s)*

    I've had several dealings with Wyatt since my last review. All different, all great!

    Most recently, I kinda sheepishly (goatishly) approached him about a charity event for some underprivileged kids in need of donated laptops. Finger nervously poised over the send button, I'm thinking, "This is a busy guy, this is his livelihood and I'm asking him to donate it? Okay, worst he might say is no. It's for a good cause so it's worth a try!" SEND.........................

    Wyatt's response: "No problem. How many do they need?"


    Donated his time, skills, advice, made a special trip to deliver what he could on REALLY short notice and even volunteered to help with future events.

    Interesting to discover that some of the stuff he buys from us on here goes to help less fortunate people. Although, I kind of suspected...

    I'm honored to be able to give back, and hope to be helping you out to get more laptops on their way in the next couple of months!
