Hey all! I'm thinking of selling my 2013 Macbook Pro 15 for the 2017 model. After browsing all different forms of selling including craigslist, eBay and swappa.. I landed on Macmeanoffer.

They're offering $885 for my computer which is comparable to selling elsewhere and this would be on the no hassle side of things. To be cautious, has anyone used them or care to share an updated review of them if they used them recently?

Thank you!

I haven't used them personally, but I have sold many pieces of used Apple hardware to the people at Quality Macs here in San Diego, through their website at http://cashforyourmac.com/sell_your_mac.html. They are very reasonable and friendly, easy to get ahold of and speak with. Excellent customer service both in their store and online. Try them out and see what they offer for your equipment.

Found an old thread talking about MacMeAnOffer: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/cashforyourmac-macmeanoffer-any-real-reviews-from-ipad-sellers.1973890/

Found this BBS page for the parent company: https://www.bbb.org/west-florida/business-reviews/used-computer-dealers/mac-of-all-trades-in-tampa-fl-90009020

Read the reviews and complaints and decide if you want to do business with them.

If you have a local, 3rd party Apple store, I would likely start there. Always go local if you can.
I started the first of those threads and yes, had a great experience with CashforyourMac. As I wrote there, I was selling an iPad and got more than the Craigslist going rate at the time.

That's the only time I have ever used the service, and I can't guarantee you'll have good results. But my single experience was very easy - worth a look, at least.

Have no experience with any of the sites. The only time we've sold things were to people we knew and most of the computer items go locally. Have sold iPhones and iPads through eBay but that was several years back and not sure I want to do the hassle of eBay any longer.

[doublepost=1499040386][/doublepost]Have you checked what they're selling that same model for on their affiliated Mac of All Trades site?

And if so, what do you reckon a fair markup to be?

Strikes me that's a way to determine just how fair the price is that they offer you (after factoring in the convenience of not having to deal with CL or Ebay)
