Where to put the old PC?

You need a new PC and don't know what to do with the old device - but you don't want it to end up as a dust collector in the basement? Then you've come to the right place at Ankermann when it comes to taking back your PC.
We check and recycle your old PC sustainably. That means: Our specialists take care of the old device, check it through and recycle all components where this is possible. Parts that can no longer be used are materially recycled by us, so that the resources that are in your old device go back into the raw material cycle. Together with you, we make an important contribution to environmental protection and conserve scarce resources.
Regardless of whether your new device is from Ankermann or whether the old device was bought from us - we even accept old devices that were not purchased from Ankermann, because we want to make it as easy as possible for you to take back used PCs:

  • Contact us online, request a DHL label as a PDF
  • Print label
  • Grab the appropriate box
  • Pack your PC
  • Stick on the DHL label
  • Bring the package to the post office or have it conveniently picked up at home
  • We will look at the old device and give you a voucher for our shop depending on its condition (value 0-200€, MBW: 700€)
  • Your PC is ready for a new life

As soon as your PC reaches us, we will ensure that it is professionally prepared, replace wearing parts and give it a general overhaul.
If you are concerned about the data protection of your old hard drives and SSDs, we can reassure you: all old mass storage devices will be disposed of professionally, the refurbished devices will receive new hard drives or SSDs from us.


Ankermann, ASUS or Acer, to name just a few of the well-known manufacturers - they all constantly bring new models onto the market that are more powerful, have a more modern design and are more comprehensively equipped than the previous generation. The leaps in innovation are certainly smaller today than they were a few years ago. However, this can already be the decisive nuance to work even more efficiently, to gamble or to enjoy the whole variety of the multimedia world. We also know that in many households numerous old devices are still living in the shadows and are waiting for a new life. Search your basement and attic, decide to send your used PC to us and we will dispose of it professionally.


The professional recycling of your old PC is not only worthwhile for the environment. By sending us your old and fully functional PC, you give it a second life, so that the IT lifecycle of the product is significantly extended. This saves valuable resources, electronic waste is avoided and you sustainably reduce your CO₂ footprint, in line with a responsible approach to our environment.
But that's not all. Because we believe that good deeds are rewarded, you will receive a voucher from us for the old device, which is based on the value of the PC. Depending on the condition and value of the old PC, you will receive a voucher worth €0 in extreme cases up to €200 for our PC shop, which you can use to buy new hardware in our shop. The voucher has a minimum order value of €700 and is valid for the return of functioning PCs; the hard drive or SSD may be defective, otherwise there are no other conditions. Perhaps while browsing our website you will find a new system or accessory to reward you?

Give yourself a push - create space in your home and do something good for the environment at the same time.


There are two ways to return:


Your PC has the potential to have a second life as a second-hand device. To do this, the device must still be working or only the hard drive must be defective, otherwise the computer should still be usable. In this case please go to the device manager, expand the relevant components and then take a picture of it.

Then send the picture with a short description of the most important components of the PC such as CPU, graphics card, RAM etc. to the following email address:


We will then get back to you with an offer, which we can offer as a voucherin pay for the device and send you a shipping label as a PDF with which you can send us the computer free of charge.


You just want to have your old PC professionally recycled, but it no longer works and you don't think the device can be used again.
