Attention to Detail
We know Apple. We've processed hundreds of thousands of Apple devices. Our audit and imaging process uses our own custom-built software designed to thoroughly and accurately process devices.

First Stock vs. Second Stock
Distinctions of Quality for Schools
We offer two different cosmetic options on some of our devices, First Stock and Second Stock.
The majority of our devices are considered First Stock. This is our highest cosmetic grade. There will be only minor signs of use and no engravings or other major blemishes.
On some devices, we offer a Second Stock option at a discounted price. These devices are 100% functional, yet may have cosmetic issues such as bent corners, surface case scratches or engravings. We include a free shell case on these devices to present a clean look. We consider these devices a great value for any classroom.
We pride ourselves on the cleanliness and organization of our main repair facility located in San Jose, California.
Our expansive tech area utilizes specialized audit and imaging stations to meet the needs of larger deployments.
Our multi-dock warehouse enables us to process incoming and outgoing shipments of thousands of devices at a time.
Customers are encouraged to visit and geek out on our imaging racks and smile at our collection of vintage Macs.
