How to make money from your old PC

If you are reading this article, then it is quite obvious that you are using a computer. It may be a tablet, a smartphone, a laptop or a good old desktop, but chance are slim that you will be able to lead your life without a computing device. Since the advent of electricity, personal computer has created a deeper impression on the human psyche than anything else.

Every single day we are bombarded with new avatars of personal computer in some capacity. With increasing levels of competition, traditional PC makers are launching sleeker, faster and powerful computers. Their advertising campaigns are so powerful that it compels parents to succumb to the desires of their kids to bring home the latest model. On the other hand, pressing business needs and the urge to remain in the spotlight are pushing organizations and adult individuals to grab the hottest gadget. So far so good, but not everything is as rosy as it seems to be.

Every hour, thousands of old computers are thrown away recklessly in trash bins, only to get replaced by a modern model. As we know, old PCs contain higher amount of toxic materials than their new counterparts. When used as landfills or burned as ordinary garbage, these toxic materials like mercury and lead are released into the atmosphere. Such a lackadaisical attitude on the part of educated individuals can result in a havoc, if not checked and addressed in a proper, scientific manner.

Thanks to sensible initiatives and entrepreneurs, as well as government regulations, we can now curb our ‘who cares’ attitude and contribute towards creating a healthier Earth. But it does not stop here! Shrewd strategies and offers from entrepreneurs to lure clients are just too good to refuse, especially on the face of the fact that resale values of compact consumer electronic goods like PCs depreciate faster than we can possibly imagine.

To make things easier to understand, let us take an example. Suppose you decide to replace your old PC with a new one, which you have used for 5 years after buying it for $1000. Now, you are going to invest another $1000 for a new PC, but you are short of the budget by $100. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone just comes to your home or office, picks up your old PC and give you a crunch $100 bill for that! Well, it can happen, if you want it to be.

So, if you are planning to buy a new PC and scrap your old one, just search the internet for an appropriate service provider. Check for their credentials in computer recycling, collect their contacts and call them or drop an email in the prescribed format (usually given in their websites). They will follow up with your case and contact you. You can then discuss and negotiate about their ‘buy back’ scheme. It’s also likely that representatives from the concerned service provider will inspect the condition of your PC, before finally deciding the amount you will be getting in exchange for it. If things don’t work out, start searching for another service provider. However, if the deal is closed, give a bye-bye hug to your old PC and do a Gangnam-style dance, for the cash is on its way to you!

AUTHOR’S BIO: Thomas Wright is an entrepreneur and is looking forward to invest in computer recycling. He has partnered with Eplanet Enterprise LLC – a premier e-waste and computer recycling firm in Boston, Massachussetts. Eplanet is also engaged in IT asset recovery and data recovery for corporations and commoners.
