As we head into the New Year, folks often tend to get a head start on spring cleaning- and one of the first items to go are used computer parts and accessories.
Whether it be a CPU, processor, or any other component- it lying around collecting dust isn’t helping you any. And instead of junking it for nothing, more and more people and businesses are finding ways to sell their old cpu’s for cash- especially if they’re larger loads. If you’re thinking about doing the same, read on for our tips:
Tip #1: Now is the right time to sell
There isn’t a better time to sell your old cpu’s than right now. With COVID shutting down factories, and more people working from home than ever, demand for computers and parts are at an all-time high, while the supply is at its lowest. If you have computer parts to sell, you’re in luck- it’s a seller’s dream market, with prices being paid for old computer equipment higher than its ever been.
Tip #2: Find out what you have exactly
Quad core? I3/i5/i7 series? Intel Xeon series? With so many different types of cpu’s and processors, it’s important to identify what you have first. Start by checking for the model number on the CPU. A simple Google search can show hundreds of comparisons, and a click into “Shopping” can show you just how much they go for.
Tip #3: Try and cut out the middlemen
Ok so now you know you want to sell your computer equipment, and you have an idea of how much you’d like for it. You put it up on eBay, get an offer, and sell for the price you wanted. Only to come to find out you’re getting much less than the agreed upon price. Why? Because of all the fees. Online marketplaces may charge an insertion fee and final value fees- so you pay a fee to list, and also when you finally sell. Want to set a reserve price, change how long the auction goes for, or even just list it in bold? You guessed it- there are fees added for all of those as well.
