MaxBack can handle all the details of setting up your shipment. Best of all, we pay all shipping charges including insurance for your devices.

Get Paid

Upon inspection of your devices, payment will be issued for your shipment.

Why MaxBack?

Complete Reporting

MaxBack offers detailed reporting including the serial number or IMEI for every device we inspect. In the event we find any functional issues, they will be clearly noted in the receiving report.

Forecasting and Planning

We know many refreshes are many months or even years in the making. We’ll use our extensive market data and history to help you make informed decisions about the value of your inventory of used devices.

US Based Processing Center

All devices are inspected at our own facility in Erie, Pennsylvania. 

Concierge Level Service

When you choose MaxBack, you’ll be assured of the highest level of service. You’ll be assigned a dedicated representative who will be your main point of contact for the entire process. No general help lines or impersonal trouble ticket systems here!

Pack and Pay

If you have over 500 devices, we can send a team to pack up the units at your location. We’ll even pay a percentage of deal value before the devices leave your building! Ask your representative for more details.

Data Cleansing

All devices are fully data cleared for complete peace of mind.

20 Years Serving Education

Our experience serving educational institutions began back in1998 with the launch of a program for schools to collect and earn funds from empty printer cartridges. This effort, which later came to be known as FundingFactory, pioneered an entirely new way for creating funding for educational technology.

More than 50,000 organizations have benefited through FundingFactory, collectively earning more than $60 million in funding from their recycling efforts.

FundingFactory Leads to MaxBack

MaxBack was launched in 2010 by the same team who created FundingFactory. provides individuals and corporations (and now schools) a fast and easy solution for recycling used devices such as cell phones, tablets, Apple watches, wearables and MacBooks. Through an easy-to-use online portal, customers get a free quote and can sell their device for cash.

During the summer of 2018, the Fairview School District renewed their lease of iPads for the 1:1 program. We selected Maxback to sell our fleet we were retiring and I’m glad we did. First, having the company local made the whole process go much smoother and took a lot of burden off our IT staff. The Maxback team came to the schools, packaged and inventoried all of the iPads and took them to their location. After evaluating their condition, they issue payment to the school district. I would recommend MaxBack as a buyback company without hesitation!
