With Hardsoft you can trade in your Mac against a newly leased Mac and get money off the weekly payments. We accept all Apple Macs from 2007 onwards, just send them in to our head office, or drop them off at our Shoreditch Office near Old Street roundabout. Prices can vary between Mac’s depending on a few factors such as the specification of the Mac, such as: HDD size, RAM, Processor, Size of Screen. We cannot, of course, accept Macs that are broken or badly damaged.
When you trade in your Mac you have a few options in terms of what you can trade it in against. As we predominantly lease Macs we can offer you a discount on the price per week of leasing a brand new Apple Mac for your business
For example, a recent deal one of our sales team put together for a customer saw them trading in their existing Mac and taking a new iMac with 5K Retina – Core i7 (Quad) – 4.0GHz, 2TB Fusion Drive, 16GB RAM, Integrated 27” LED 5K Display, AMD Radeon R9 M395 2GB Graphics, Wireless, Bluetooth, macOS sierra, Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2, plus a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar – Core i7 (Quad) – 2.6GHz, 256GB PCIe SSD, 16GB RAM, Wireless, Bluetooth, Thunderbolt, 15” Retina Display, Radeon Pro 450 (2GB) Graphics, macOS Sierra and Carry Case, all with 3 years collect and return hardware warranty with loan replacement Mac, for £37.85 plus VAT instead of £41.75 per week plus VAT. That’s a saving of £3.90 plus VAT per week. If you add it up over the 3 year lease period this amounts to a large saving for your business!
You can even arrange for us to collect your Apple Mac from any UK address, to save you the hassle of getting it to us yourself. Our free courier service will arrive on a pre-agreed date (which must be within 7 days of you receiving your new Apple Mac from us) at any time between 9am and 5pm at a location of your choice. Don’t worry if you have some sensitive information sitting on your old Mac’s hard drive, we guarantee to wipe the hard drive to MOD standards so you can rest assured that nothing will be left there.
The lease also includes 3 years warranty, insurance and full time support from our trained engineers. As mentioned earlier we trade in all Macs so your options are very broad. If you are looking to trade in your Mac against a new Mac and you want to buy the machine we can offer you a price in exchange for your old Mac Apple depending on the spec and age. We all know that Apple frequently change their products with newer, more powerful models, so being able to trade in your Mac against a new one is an affordable way of keeping up to date with the latest that Apple has to offer.

Leasing has always been great for cash flow and this offer just makes it even better.
Our leasing experts have come up with an opportunity to defer the payments on your PC or Apple Mac for up to 3 months while getting your IT today; in short that all important project that doesn’t pay you until January needs a new Apple iMac 27″ Retina 5K to be completed; why not investigate this latest great offers.
All we ask is that you accept the payments will be on a Quarterly basis which means 4 payments per year and you get that grace period at the start of the lease before making that first rental payment.
To give an example of the reality of payments if you took a brand new lease on a MacBook Pro 15” 2.2GHz, 256 GB Flash the price on the website is £13.90 + VAT per week on Flexi Lease. On our standard term if you ordered this today you would be required to make 36 monthly payments with the first one paid immediately and upfront.
With our new option you could acquire that machine this month with 12 Quarterly payments of £180.70 plus VAT per month but the first one of those lease payment would not be taken until January 2017. You would of course still have access to all the same renewal options which would start after 8 of your quarterly payments.
Naturally there are a few restrictions and this offer is subject to credit status. The key think is that this offer is for low value orders and is only for leases where the equipment is less than £18.55 per week.

From a small business perspective, you could equip 5 employees with the latest iPad Air for less than £20 per week. Other iPad Air and Mini retinas are available so feel free to contact us for other specs.
These iPads also come with 3 Years Apple Warranty and 3 years insurance for accidental damage plus a ruggedised carry case – the latter will help to prevent anything from going wrong and the former will give you peace of mind if it does. This really is the perfect iPad leasing package and is now even better at a reduced price.
We understand that you might be a bit confused by the term “refurbished”. Let us explain what we mean by this in a little more detail. Refurbished iPads are refurbished by Apple directly and are of full UK specification. The packaging even follows Apple’s stringent rules. They are fully tested (including burn testing), given new front glass and rear casing and a replacement battery and repackaged with all additional extras that a new iPad comes with such as cables etc., installed with the original iOS or with a newer version in some cases and given a unique serial number. t. Take a look at the surrounding images to get an idea of how indistinguishable from brand new these products really are!
Tablet computers now outsell Laptops and iPads are fast becoming a great asset for small and large businesses alike. Having the App Store at your disposal is a huge plus on its own. A quick search will find you 1000s of Apps to help you with time and document management. What’s more, Microsoft Office 365 is also now compatible with iPad so you can use it for word processing, presentations and more! iPads are also built for portability and are therefore great for businesses and employees constantly on the move. They also act as good communication devices and last but certainly not least, are durable and safe to use.
In short then, there are many benefits to leasing an Apple Certified Refurbished product. You can save on cost without having to sacrifice on functionality or appearance. Moreover, you are covered with 3 Years Warranty if something does go wrong with the iPad. If you do experience any issues with the iPad, it can be taken to both HardSoft or an Apple Store.
Apple do warn on their website that refurbished stock is limited and goes quickly when put online for sale. Leasing from HardSoft prevents your business from missing out but also acts as a cheaper and much more flexible option.
