    Boomerang Buyback has the resources in place to reuse, refurbish, repair and redistribute large quantities of new, used, broken and unwanted electronic gadgets.
    When we are able to pay for items in either a working or broken condition, these items are going to be reused for parts and resold back into the market place. Recycle only items which we are not able to pay for are recycled with our ISO certified recycling partners and scraped for their material value.
    The whole idea behind our system is to keep electronics out of landfill and keep our planets resources in the ground. The idea is to keep gadgets moving and in use as much as possible before they become obsolete. And when gadgets do become obsolete we work to recycle and use the materials again and again.
    In this way, for every second hand gadget that we create and reintroduce to the marketplace, a new gadget is not being manufactured in its place to fit that same need.
    We have a network of buyers and we are constantly updating the prices. Typically prices of used items are constantly dropping but you would be surprised that on a rare occasion they do rise a little bit. When you receive a quote from us it is valid for 21 days. This should give you plenty of time to get the items to our facility. If it arrives outside of this timeframe the price will be adjusted to the current market rate.
    Yes! As a new electronics recycling service, our aim is to raise the bar with our massive product range, excellent customer service and top PRICES. During the first 6 months of operation (until June 2013) we are going to guarantee that our prices will not be beat! If you can find a trade-in price that is better than ours, we will match that price AND give you an extra 10%! For more on this please see our Terms and Conditions.
    When you receive a quote you can tick the appropriate boxes for the condition. Scroll over each option for a more detailed description of the appropriate condition. “Working” items mean that all of the original intended fundtions are operating properly and that the unit is free of water damage.
    Most electronic devices contain water damage sensors. These are small white squares usually tucked away in unnoticeable places. When exposed to water they turn red. Once an item has been exposed to water, it is generally considered broken regardless of functionality. This is an industry standard as typically once exposed to water, gadgets will not last much longer and do not hold the same value.
    We do an honest and fair diagnosis of each item before we look at the submission ticket and we pay out items according to our diagnosis. In a large majority of submissions our diagnosis matches your submission and often times we will pay more for an item when our customers are overly modest when stating the condition of an item. If, however, the price changes to the downside by greater than either $25 of 25% you will be notified via email with an explanation. You will then be given 7 days to agree or disagree with the repricing and have the unit sent back to you. Please see Terms and Conditions for further details.
    Please note that if our emails are not responded to within 7 days, the device will be processed at the diagnosed price.
    If you have a large order it may be best to contact us directly. This may be because you are in charge of the IT equipment at the school or office or you might just be doing a large clean out. Often times with large orders we can combine shipping and pass along some of the savings to you.
