– Doing Our Bit to Tackle Mobile Phone Theft

Smartphone theft is big business for criminals in 2019, illustrated by the fact that there were more than ½ a million devices stolen in the UK in 2018 alone. So, what do mobile phone thieves try to do with the tech they’ve stolen? Well, they’ll try to sell it in any way they can and what we can tell you categorically is that at, we will never knowingly profit by trading in a stolen handset. That’s because it’s wrong and it’s just not how we operate.

CheckMend Verification

In the course of the smartphone trade-in services we provide, we come into contact with thousands upon thousands of smartphones and we protect the owners of top tech everywhere by using the CheckMend Verification system  This means that we can instantly find out the complete history of any mobile that comes into our workshop and we’re immediately alerted if they’ve been reported as stolen so that we can take the appropriate course of action.

A Smartphone Trade-in Service with Integrity

Whilst some less scrupulous smartphone trade-in operators are happy to overlook such things in the interest of making money, there is absolutely no way we would ever do so. There’s no point offering the very best smartphone trade-in service around if you’re willing to engage in dodgy practices like accepting stolen smartphone trade-ins. By operating with  integrity and by following the CheckMend method of handset verification, we ensure that this particular avenue is closed off to the criminals.

Simple, Fast, Rewarding

At, we accept iPhone trade-ins, Samsung Galaxy Trade-ins and even tablet and games console trade-ins and one of our unique selling points is that we pay you fast. After ‘selling’ your smartphone trade-in via our super-easy online process and sending it to us in one of our free sales packs, we will then have a member of our team verify the condition and model of your device. Once we’ve done that, you’ll have your money zoomed over to you via bank transfer and usually the same day!

We’ve made it as easy and quick to trade in your old iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, iPod or games console than it’s ever been. So, why not come and find out how much your old tech is worth – you might be pleasantly surprised!

5 Reasons Why is The Savvy Choice for Trading in Your Old Tech

At, we often get asked what’s different about the smartphone trade-in services we offer and it’s something that we’re more than happy to explain. We have put a lot of time and effort into making the trade-in process as simple and smooth as possible and by reading on, you’ll understand why opting for us is the savvy move.

Reason 1 – 1,000,000+ Happy Customers

First of all, we’re not new to the smartphone trade-in industry and to date, we’ve helped more than 1 million people to release the value in their phones. You don’t get to that level of customer satisfaction without doing something right, so we’d say that’s a ringing endorsement for what we do.

Reason 2 – Postage is Free

The last thing you need is for the value of your old tech to be eaten into by postage, which is why whether you’re sending your trade-in to us or we’re sending it back, you’ll never pay a single penny in postage. We occasionally have to send back customer phones that aren’t quite how they’ve been described during the sales process, so it’s nice to know that if that happens that it won’t cost you anything.

Reason 3 – Fast & Easy Payment

One thing that puts people off trading in their smartphone is having to wait ages to get paid. You have no such worries with us as we make payment via direct bank transfer wherever possible and it’s usually the same day we receive your device. Once you have the email from us telling you that we have your device in our possession, you know your money will soon arrive after we’ve verified its condition.

Reason 4 – Our Price Promise

We understand that there might be some scepticism out there and that we’ll come up with some reason why the price we gave you on our site won’t be the amount you’ll get in the end. Whilst this may have happened to you in the past, the Price Promise means that won’t happen with us. We guarantee that if your device reaches in the condition it was described, you’ll get the full amount and that’s a promise you can rely on!

Reason 5 – We are Committed to Protecting the Environment

Far too often old mobile phones end up making their way to landfill which ultimately pollutes the environment. The overwhelming amount of smartphone trade-ins we receive are refurbished and sent to developing countries, which not only protects the environment, but also helps out people really need it.

We’ll do our utmost to ensure that the next time you have some unwanted tech, you’ll use us again.

Swell Your Summer Holiday Spending Cash With a Smartphone Trade-in

It’s that time of year again when we all start heading off to warmer climes for a much-needed spot of rest and recuperation and one of the things you really need to make that holiday the best it can be, is some spending cash! However, what many people find is that after paying for their yearly getaway and all their other bills, there’s precious little left in the pot to tap into.

So, what do you do?

Well, you could try a Payday Loan, but you’ll invariably end up paying through the nose for it or you could borrow from a friend or relative, but you’d still have to pay it back. A much better option to choose is to consider freeing up the value that lies within your old smartphones that lie unused in your kitchen drawer – you know, that phone you kept hold of in case your new one broke.

A smartphone trade-in is a savvy move because you’re not having to borrow money from anyone and it’s tapping into cash that would otherwise dwindle away to nothing as your phone depreciates. At, we even offer cash for your old smartphone trade-in if it’s damaged, so don’t assume that it’s not worth anything. You’ll likely get less for it than you would if it wasn’t damaged, but it’s still much better than getting nothing at all!

You’ll also be doing something good for people in developing countries by trading in an old smartphone, as the overwhelming majority of smartphone trade-ins we perform end up with the device being refurbished and sent to areas that really benefit from the technology across Asia and Africa. Not only that, but you avoid throwing the tech away and having it finding its way into landfill.

It’s super easy to sell your smartphone trade-in to us too, as we’ve made the process as simple as we possibly can. All you need to do is visit us online, type the model and condition of your device and you’ll get an instant figure that you can rely on – our Price Promise ensures that as long as you’ve described your device’s condition accurately, you’re guaranteed to get the sum offered on our site. Then it’s just a matter of proceeding the with the sale and sending your device to us in one of our free sales packs.
