Gazelle, who claims to be the biggest company in the US that deals with second hand products, is all set to begin selling the first gen iPads that it acquired after the iPad 2 was launched. For this, Gazelle has launched its own site dedicated entirely to the iPads and is offering all six models of the Apple tablet.
“We have been exploring the development of an e-commerce experience, and the iPad presented us with a perfect set of circumstances to get out in front of customers with a simple pilot,” said Israel Ganot, the co-founder and CEO of Gazelle.
The price Gazelle is selling the refurbished iPads for range from $379.99 for the least speced (16 GB Wi-Fi) version to a maximum of $479.99 for the highest speced model featuring 64 GB of storage with both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. The 3G versions come integrated with AT&T 3G module, while all iPads sold will come in the original packaging containing the charger and dock cable, as well as the manual. There is a return policy as well which is valid for 3o days and which you can make the best use of in case you aren’t satisfied with the condition of the iPads. Gazelle is maintaining the iPads have “minimal signs of wear from normal handling, such as light scratches.” Gazelle had earlier stated they have 15,000 iPads in condition good enough to be sold again but are starting out with an initial lot of 1000 for this new venture.
