With so many companies willing to pay you cash for recycling your old mobile phone we have put together a checklist of top tips.
1. Shop around
Don’t agree with the first offer you see. Using a price comparison site like ours will help you compare many recycling companies quickly all in one place to help you save time and earn more money for your phone or tablet.
2. Ask around
With mobile recycling becoming more popular every year there is a good chance that friends or family will be able to recommend a good recycling company. If not read reviews online from independent review websites like reviewcentre.com or tustpilot.com
3. Ask questions
Remember you can always challenge a company on their initial price offering if you believe your device is worth more. It could be a special edition model or in pristine condition.
4. Avoid free post
Never send your device to the mobile recycling companies free post address in just their free post envelope. If your phone is worth over £10 we highly recommend sending it via recorded delivery.
5. Think outside the box
6. Wipe all personal data
Remember to clear all personal data from your mobile phone before it changes hands. Most modern smartphones have a reset to default factory settings option hidden in their somewhere. A quick Google search for ‘factory reset (YOUR MOBILE PHONE MODEL)” will no doubt bring up a wealth of information and tutorials to help you achieve this.
