With the closure of schools across the country, many school children are currently missing out on education because of a lack of access to technology. As a direct response to this, Computer Aid International has decided to offer free collection and data wiping to individuals who want to donate working laptops.
Computer Aid International is offering a solution to people who want to donate laptops to a good cause but can’t drop them off or post them. The new remote data wiping service allows users to have all data on their device destroyed from the comfort of their own home, ensuring that their personal data will not be at risk. A courier collection will then be arranged to pick up the laptop which will be taken to the Tier 1 warehouse and refurbished before it will be reused by a non-profit organization. Collections are available across the UK.
We are now accepting donations of laptops which meet the following criteria:
- i3, i5, i7 processor,
- 4GB RAM,
- 250GB hard drive
- Less than 7 years old
We have these criteria in place in order to ensure the laptop will be able to be used for a significant period by the beneficiary. Items which don’t meet this specification, or which aren’t in a working condition will have a large negative impact on this project and on our work as a charitable organization, so please keep in mind that we’re offering this service for free to help during lockdown.
This service is currently free, please fill in this form and we'll get back to you as soon as we can:
