Examples of common manufacturers are Apple, Dell, Sony, HP, Compaq, Toshiba, and Acer.

How much do you want for the item?: Tell us how much you want for the item. Jay Brokers will try to meet your goal amount, but keep in mind that we have to leave room for profit. For items worth more than $250, we can generally offer about 70% of the current fair market value (FMV). FMV is different than current asking prices or current MSRP; it is the amount for which the item can realistically be sold and what the item is realistically worth in today's marketplace.
What do you know about the item?: In order to provide an accurate guaranteed offer, Jay Brokers needs to know the basic specifications of the item for which you are requesting an offer. Many items such as laptops have customizable options that were originally specified at the time of purchase; therefore, a manufacturer and model number alone are often not sufficient to properly identify your item.
For example, specifications might include the following (where applicable):
If you do not provide detailed specifications, Jay Brokers will assume your item has the default or standard configuration without any options or upgrades.
- Processor Speed (Ex. 2GHz Core 2 Duo)
- Memory or RAM (Ex. 2GB)
- Hard Drive or Storage Capacity (Ex. 160GB)
- Screen Size (Ex. 15.4" Non-Glossy)
- Wireless Options (Ex. Wi-Fi or 3G)
What is included with the item?: In order to provide an accurate offer, Jay Brokers needs to know what components or accessories are included with the item for which you are requesting an offer. For example, if your item is a laptop, do you plan to include the charger, battery, or recovery CDs? If your item is an iPod or MP3 player, do you plan to include the charger, headphones, or USB cable? You can also list accessories such as additional batteries, extra drives, or anything else that would significantly affect the value of your offer. If you do not specify any additional components or accessories, Jay Brokers will assume none are included with your offer request except the components required for basic functionality (charger, battery, etc.).
Is there anything wrong with the item?: In order to provide an accurate offer, Jay Brokers needs to know about any defects or imperfections your item may have. Defects and imperfections are anything that could potentially reduce the value of your item, such as malfunctioning parts and damaged or missing items. Here is a list of common defects and imperfections:
Jay Brokers is not concerned about minor cosmetic imperfections such as a small scuff mark or minor signs of wear from handling. You should, however, honestly disclose any potential defects or imperfections that could affect the value of your item.
- Dead pixels or light/dark spots on display
- Cracked display
- Malfunctioning components or parts
- Missing keys
- Cracked or heavily worn body parts
- Dead batteries
