GIVE YOUR OLD PC A NEW LIFE

Think your PC is ready for the E-waste bin? It’s a treasure to someone!

MISSION

You’re about to make someone’s day.

What’s just behind the cutting edge might be way ahead of the curve for the next owner. And that’s where we come in. We’ve partnered with some amazing charities to give your tech a new lease on life… and get you a discount in the process!

Military & Veteran Gamers

MVG (Military & Veteran Gamers) will accept any hardware (AMD or Intel), laptop or desktop, from the last 5-7 years – in good condition.

All desktops should include a power cable

All laptops should include a charging cable/brick

Items must be from non-smoking homes.

You do not need to do anything to the machine before sending it in, as we wipe all data and reset the operating system. 

However if you want to maximize privacy, we do recommend deleting/removing your personal files and data before sending a system in to us.

TIPS

If you don’t want to buy a new PC but still want to help, Artesian Builds will accept systems given free of charge to the charity program and we are thrilled that you’d like to help! 

At this time we only offer discounts and not cash payments for systems. 

The higher the value of the NEW system you intend to purchase with your charity DISCOUNT, the higher the value we may be able to assess for your trade-in.

Laptops

Condition, parts, age, and other factors may impact discount rates. Poor repairability (e.g. Apple laptops) may impact value negatively, while an upgrade to RAM may impact value positively, for instance. At this time we are pleased to accept both Mac and Windows machines. Server racks are not typically accepted, but you may inquire for details ([email protected]).
