Tech to School

Introducing Tech to School



Mac to School is now Tech to School.
Same great people, service and products, just a new name.


So why the change?

We wanted a new company name that would be more inclusive of different technology offerings while still keeping our focus on our education customers.

Will you still focus on Apple devices?

Absolutely. We’ve been an Apple centric company for over 15 years and will continue to be a leader in the space. We just want to open the door to other technology offerings to better server our education customers.

Did Apple make you change your name?

No. Although we are not an official Apple partner we’ve always enjoyed a good relationship with them and will continue to do so.

So did anything else change?

No, just the brand name. All warranties, quotes and service contracts are unchanged.

Our mission is as it was: To provide the best technology to as many students as possible. We believe that the best way to achieve that mission is by working closely with our customers and making great service our driving principle.

We look forward to working with you in the years to come!

Summer Team


Mac to School’s missions is to provide the best technology to as many students as possible. Since 2012, Mac to School has bought and sold Apple devices to K-12 schools in all 50 states, but this year we wanted to do more. We made a concerted effort to help prepare our local youth for their future careers.

This summer alone, Mac to School has hired over 60 high school and college students to work over their summer vacations. These students have earned valuable work experience, been given the opportunity to gives back to students like themselves, and provided an Apple device at a steep discount to further assist with their studies. The feedback we have received from the Mac to School employees and students has been that the program was a resounding success and one we will continue next year. Thanks again to all of our Summer 2016 team!

Meet “The Beast”


This is a shot of an early version of one of our custom imaging stations we’ve lovingly named “The Beast.” The Beast allows us to custom image hundreds of devices at a time.

Our tech area is open to our customers. If you’re in Silicon Valley, let us know and we can arrange a tour.

A letter to MacService customers


Today is the day we complete the transition from MacService to Tech to School. We started the Tech to School brand in 2012 as a way to focus on our education customers and it’s growth has been amazing. In order to continue to grow Tech to School we need to give it 100% of our focus and that’s why we’re transitioning from the MacService brand and consumer repairs. Tech to School would not exist without the customers, team members and support that made MacService successful.

Myself and co-founder Justin Sanderson started MacService in Cupertino, California in April of 2003. We were both 23 and shared a passion for customer service and all things Apple. We started as Mac Service Solutions and survived off of local consulting work and repair services. Our first retail shop was 600 square feet and we worked seven days a week to keep the lights on.

A couple of years into the business we borrowed $5,000 to purchase the domain and started experimenting with mail-in service. We were one of the first businesses to use Google adwords and part of their beta program. The very first day we went live with our online repair service we got an order and I can still remember how great that felt. Soon we were getting 10 repairs a day and in need of more space.

We moved to a 2,000 square foot building in Santa Clara, CA which would become our home for the next 10 years. We expanded over that time and grew to 6,000 square feet and were handling 50 repairs a day. The recession in 2008 hit us hard. We had to scale back staff by 50% and most of those who were left went without pay to keep the business afloat. We kept the focus on service and did our best to help our customers save money during that time. We came out of the recession and started looking at new ways to serve our customers.

Tech to School was born in 2012 out of a test to sell MacBooks in 5-packs. MacService had been working with schools across the U.S. to help with their repairs and when we started selling refurbished MacBooks we noticed that they were our best customers. After dialogue with some of our core education customers we decided to try and market directly to the education market under the Tech to School brand.

Today, Tech to School is a vibrant, growing company with an amazing customer base and passionate team members. Earlier this year we moved into a new 16,000 square foot facility to better serve our customers. Tech to School’s mission is to put the best technology into the hands of as many students as possible and we’re making a real difference.

There’s a sign above our main doorway that reads “Always give people more than they expect to get.” The values that helped MacService grow and survive are the same ones we’ll continue to live by. I want to say a big “Thank You” to all those customers, employees, partners and others who’ve helped us along the way.

– Robert Baker, Co-Founder & CEO of MacService / Tech to School
