Donate laptops

Our work is not possible without equipment. Through scalable processes, clean documentation and our team of employees and volunteers, we guarantee a safe handling of your laptop donation - no matter if you donate one device or several.

Procedure

  1. Register your donation on our service desk;
  2. Send us the donation
  3. Get your erasure certificate.

Record donation

You can register a device donation on our Service Desk. We will see if we can continue to use the laptop or laptops. Our minimum requirements are modest:

Minimum Device Requirements

The laptops have to

  • be bootable;
  • have no display damage;
  • have at least 4GB of RAM.

The installed operating system and the manufacturer are irrelevant. We are happy to check devices that are a bit older individually for their suitability.

You don't have to delete the data beforehand, because every laptop we use is deleted again anyway. Just make sure there is no BIOS password on the laptop. If you don't know what that is, then you probably don't have one installed.


Donation handover and erasure certificate

Individual laptops

For individual laptops, you can bring the device to us in Merenschwand, send it by post or hand it in at any digitec branch in Switzerland.

Bitte stelle sicher, dass deine Spendenreferenz (WLW-xxx) auf dem Paket oder Gerät ersichtlich ist. Du kannst beispielsweise unser Mail ausdrucken, welches wir Dir schicken, sofern die Spende passt. Ohne Referenz werden wir dir ansonsten kein Löschzertifikat ausstellen können, da wir dann ja nicht wissen, wer uns beschenkt hat.

Multiple laptops

We are happy to pick up devices from you for larger quantities. Of course you can also come to see us to get an idea of ​​our work and take a photo or two. Our experience shows that laptop donations are ideal for marketing contributions and are very much appreciated by employees / customers.

Bei der Datenlöschung werdet ihr ebenfalls Zertifikate erhalten. Hierbei können wir neben der Seriennummer auch Client-Bezeichnungen erfassen (falls notwendig). Bitte teilt uns dies mit, falls dies gewünscht wird.
