You're thinking, "I want to sell my iPhone" and well, let's put it as simply as possible: we're a website that buys new and used Apple devices from you at a fair price. This includes iPads, iPods, iPhones, Macbooks and a variety of Apple accessories. Basically, you come to our website and click the name of the device you want to sell. You tell us what condition it's in, and we make you an offer. If you accept our offer, then you ship the device to us (more on this later), and receive payment. Yes, it really is that simple.
But more importantly than who we are and what we do, here are the eleven reasons why you should love us:
Selling anything is a pain in the butt - especially technology. If you sell something like a couch, you can just take a picture to verify its condition. Not true with your favorite iDevice. Instead, if you decide to sell your iPhone you have to take a picture, prove that every feature works, explain the ones that don't work, and generally give people a reason as to why you're selling your iPhone in the first place in order to ease their suspicions. Not at AppleShark. We take your word for it, and we're not going to ask a bunch of questions.
If you need the cash as soon as possible, you have two options. Either you can post your iDevice on Craigslist or eBay for an obscenely low price, or you can go through AppleShark. The difference? You're going to take a huge loss on Craigslist - assuming you're able to find an honest person. AppleShark, on the other hand, will give you cash for your iPhone or iDevice in a timely fashion.
Everyone wants to know that they're getting a fair deal. You shouldn't have to sell your iPhone 4 at a huge loss just because the iPhone 5 is coming out soon. Sure, you can't expect to get the amount you paid for it back, but you should at least get something that both parties can agree is reasonable. At AppleShark, we give you our offer before you agree to anything, so you get to decide whether you think it's fair or not. That way you'll want to sell your iPhone 5 with us as well. You even have the opportunity to check out the competition.
There's always an element of risk when you buy or sell something online. If you buy something through eBay, you have to cross your fingers and hope the person on the other end will come through. With AppleShark, we're as honest as they come. In fact, you can see our headquarters and all of our staff right here http://appleshark.com/meet-the-team. We're not just some faceless organization. You know exactly who you're dealing with at all times.
Sure, we could give you the boring "corporate" speak. You know, "for this quarter, our goal is to improve our customer satisfaction by three quality cubes and escalate profit margins all the way to marshmallow." See? Corporate talk doesn't even make sense. So instead of giving you that corporate BS and using fine print to crush your dreams, we're open and honest about who we are. We're not the guy in the business suit with the too-tight tie, we're the person who browses through the Apple store for fun.
Sometimes, we come across an iPod or iPhone that is so old or so hopelessly broken that even our brilliant technicians can't repair it. Sure, we could just toss it in the trash and let Mother Earth deal with it, but instead we do the right thing: we recycle. See, with electronics, you have to follow all of these special procedures in order to recycle something. You might not know these procedures, but we do. That's why you can send your old or broken Apple device to us and have us recycle it for you.
You've sold your iPod to some random person, and it looks like you'll make a tidy profit. Except that they're living on the other side of the country and you have to pay for shipping. Not only that, but you have to insure the package and send it through airmail. Suddenly, your profit doesn't look as great. Well, here at AppleShark, we want to make your experience as great as possible. That's why when you sell your iDevice to us, we send you a shipping label that you can print. Once attached, this shipping label gets your iDevice directly to our headquarters with no extra effort on your part.
Look. You can check out our offers and you can compare them to other offers you find. You can even
cross your heart and hope that an eBay auction works out for you, but at the end of it all, you'll find one
thing to be true: AppleShark pays more for your iPhone, iPad, iPod, and everything else. When you get
right down to it, isn't the goal of selling your Apple device to make the most money possible?
AppleShark is here to help you do that.
Let's be honest, the traditional telephone menu sounds something like this: Press '1' to confirm you're on the other end of the phone. Press '2' if you have a question and would like to be redirected to our website for an answer. Press '3' to speak to someone who doesn't care about you or your experience. At AppleShark, we actually care about your experience. Which is why we don't have robots managing our telephones. Instead, we'll - and this is revolutionary - actually answer the phone when you call. You get to talk to a live human. How great is that?
When we make you an offer, and you accept, our offer is good for 45 days. That means you have about a month and a half to send your iPhone to us, and we'll still pay the quoted price. So, if you want to sell your iPhone 5 and upgrade to the iPhone 6, you can get a quote from us, wait until you have the iPhone 6 in the palm of your hand, then send in your iPhone 5. This way you're still getting the price you would've got prior to the iPhone 6 coming out, but you didn't have to spend any time without your phone.
Take a serious look at your options. You have AppleShark - fast, efficient, and fair. You have eBay - slow, no guarantee to work, and you might take a loss. You have Craigslist - come on, it's Craigslist, do we have to list the problems? There are a few other websites that buy Apple products that you consider. We even mention them here: http://www.gazelle.com/ , http://www.usell.com/ Yes, we're so confident that we'll even direct you to our competition.
Because we're better. When you're contemplating, "I want to sell my iPhone," rest assure that we offer better prices, better terms, and better shipping. You deserve to work with
And AppleShark is the best.
