There are two possible ways of returning your computer:


Your PC can be used as a secondhand device and be refurbished. The device has to be in working order or if defective, only the HDD/SSD can be faulty. In this case, please open windows device manager and click the relevant components so they pop out like in the image, then take a pic.

Then send the picture together with a short description of the PC and its components, e.g. „intel core i5, geforce 1050, 8GB RAM“ to our mail address:

We will then check your old PC and contact you with an offer for a voucher for you and send you a shipping label as PDF. You can send us the old PC cost-free with the shipping label.


You just want to recycle the old PC from experts, it no longer works and you do not think that it can be refurbished.
In that case, put the PC in a package and send the parcel to our address. You have to pay shipping costs yourself:
