Offset The Cost of Your New Smartphone with a Super-Easy Smartphone Trade-in

If you’re on the lookout for a new iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S10 or a Huawei P30 and you can’t quite afford the full list price, you are faced with a few options to make up the shortfall. You could take on some overtime at work, sell your car or even sign up to a long and expensive mobile phone contract.

We think you’ll agree that none of these options are particularly appealing, so why not consider a 4th option which involves trading in your old tech for cash? It really is as easy as it sounds to trade in a smartphone, iMac or even a games console to raise the extra money you need for your new shiny smartphone.

Sell, Send, Spend!

When you trade in your old tech with us at Tradein.co.uk, the process is as easy as 1,2,3 and it won’t cost you a penny. Simply ‘sell’ your device on our website, receive an instant quote for it and then send your Samsung Galaxy trade-in, iPhone trade-in, Apple Watch trade-in or even Playstation 4 trade-in for free!

During the selling process, you’ll be asked to describe the condition of your trade-in device and once we’ve got it in our possession, which usually takes just a couple of days, we’ll verify it and send you your trade-in cash that very same day. The only job you’re left with then is putting it with the rest of your cash and spending it on your new dreamy smartphone!

The Tradein.co.uk Price Promise

Now, there might be some of you out there thinking that the price we quote on our website won’t be the price we’ll actually pay you for selling your old tech, but they’d be wrong. Our price promise guarantees that as long as you’ve accurately described the condition of your device, you’ll get every penny of the offer you were given. And that’s a promise you can rely on.

A Fair Price

Something else you can rely on when selling your old smartphone with Tradein.co.uk is that you’ll get a fair price for it. We offer some of the best prices online for console, tablet and smartphone trade-ins, so you’re sure to get a value you’re happy with. Sure, you could get more selling privately on auction sites like eBay, but you’ll then have to deal with listing, taking photographs and all of the conversations you’ll have with prospective buyers.

The Tradein.co.uk way is far easier and much less stressful.

Tap, Tap, Sale!

If you’d like to come and see how much your old tech is worth with just a couple of taps of your mouse or smartphone screen, head over to our website www.tradein.co.uk where you’ll find out everything you need to know. We accept all sorts of tech for trade-in and even accept damaged devices, so don’t assume your tech isn’t worth anything if it’s broken in any way. Just make sure you describe it that way during the selling process.

If you hit any problems or you’d just like to have a chat with one of our trade-in experts, give us a call on 020 3581 1991 and a member of our team will give you the info you need.

Save Yourself the Hassle of Selling Your Old Smartphone Privately with Tradein.co.uk

If you’ve ever tried to sell an old smartphone privately, you’ll most likely know that it often involves a lot of time, hassle and messing around. People usually try this route in search of the best possible price for their smartphone tradein, but what usually happens is a lot of wasted time for precious little profit.

At Tradein.co.uk, we don’t think that trading in a smartphone should be a trauma, which is why we have created a service that not only offers some of the best smartphone tradein prices around, but that’s also easy to use, fast to pay out and won’t eat into your free time.

Easy Online Sale

The first step to your smartphone tradein cash is to visit us online and enter the make and model of your device into the box provided http://bit.ly/2UKEd4G.

If you’re happy with the price quoted, it’s then just a matter of sending your smartphone tradein to us in one of our free sales packs.

Our Price Promise

We guarantee the price you’re quoted with our Price Promise, so you needn’t worry about us receiving your tradein and giving you a lower price than you were originally offered. The only time this would happen would be if you’ve not described the condition of your smartphone tradein correctly, in which case, we’d have to adjust the offer slightly. Even then, however, you’re under no obligation to accept it and if need be, we can return your device free of charge, no questions asked.

Fast Payment

Unlike many other smartphone tradein companies out there, we pay out fast! And when we say fast, we mean it, as you’ll typically receive your money the same day your device arrives with us. All we have to do is verify receipt, check it over and transfer your cash straight into your bank. No hanging around waiting for cheques to arrive or however many working days that particular company takes to pay you.

Compared with the other options available, the Tradein.co.uk route to releasing the cash in your old tech is lightning fast and super-easy. Many people choose not to trade in their old tech because they think it’s going to be a pain and we’re here to tell everyone that it doesn’t have to be that way.

5 Reasons Why Tradein.co.uk is The Savvy Choice for Trading in Your Old Tech

At Tradein.co.uk, 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 Tradein.co.uk 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.

Come and Check Us Out!

We completely understand that you never truly know about a company until you try out their services or products for yourself, which is why we encourage you to try us out and experience the Tradein.co.uk commitment to customer service. We’ll do our utmost to ensure that the next time you have some unwanted tech, you’ll use us again.

Try out the Tradein.co.uk difference and you might never need to use anyone else again.

Over a Million Happy Customers and Counting!

At Tradein.co.uk we are absolutely committed to offering the best value smartphone trade in services in the country and it’s something that has proven very popular with our customers since we started trading. To date, we have helped over a million people to unlock the cash that resides in their old smartphones, so that they have more money to spend on other things.

Yes, you did hear us correctly – we have helped in excess of 1,000,000 people liberate the innate value that exists in their surplus mobile tech. That means that we have literally paid out tens of millions of pounds in trade in cash to people just like you around the UK and across Europe.

So, what’s the catch?

Well, firstly, there’s no catch involved. In fact, one of the reasons our smartphone trade in services have proven so popular is that we’ve made the process really flexible and super easy. Here are just some of the selling benefits you get when you choose us for your trade in:

  • Free postage of your smartphone trade in device
  • Fast Payment once device verification has been completed (usually the same day!)
  • Damaged and faulty phones are also taken
  • A simple, easy to perform sales process

We understand that there are other ways to sell your old tech, but compared auction sites and private selling, our services offer competitive prices and take all of the guesswork out of the process. Sure, there’s a chance you could get a higher price on sites like eBay for your old smartphone, but you’ll have to pay commission on the sale and there’s no guarantee that the price you set is going to get you a buyer.

Also, selling privately can take a while to carry out, as you have to correspond with potential buyers and mess around organising to meet them. It takes a while on eBay too, as you’re looking at around 2-3 weeks on average to sell in this way.

Our Price Promise

When you go through the selling process on our website, you will be given the price we’ll pay for your particular trade in mobile model. After sending it to us in one of our free sales packs, we will notify you when we receive it, as well as when we’ve verified the condition of your device. As long as your trade in is as described, we will pay you the price you were given and no less – and that’s a promise.

From there, it’s just a case of waiting for us to fast pay the money into your bank account that very day. It really is that easy to trade in an old smartphone. So why not give it a try?

If you’d like to find out more about our trade in services or you’d like to know how much your old smartphone is worth, head over to our website www.tradein.co.uk and take a look around. If you have any questions that you need answering that aren’t on our FAQs page, give us a call on 020 3581 1991 and we’ll do the very best we can to help.

So, before you consign your old mobile to a dusty drawer, never to be seen of again, come and talk to us, as there could be a wad of unexpected cash hiding inside and you’ll never know if you don’t check first!

5 THINGS WE MISS IN OLD MOBILES… AND 5 THINGS WE DON’T

Mobile phones have come a long way since the humble Nokia 3310. They’re flatter, they’ve got HD screens, and you can do pretty much anything you could possibly want to do with them. In most ways, they’re infinitely better than the old bricks we used to stuff in our pockets – but you know what, there’s a few things we miss about the obsolete little gadgets.

 

WE MISS…

 

…how indestructible they were

 

Once, back in the noughties, I witnessed someone hurl his mobile across four lanes of traffic, walk to the other side to retrieve it, then use it to call a taxi.

 

In contrast, I couldn’t drop my last mobile onto my bed from more than 30cm in the air because the back would pop off. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to.

 

…how long the battery lasted

 

Remember when your phone could go several days before it needed charging? Given that most of us now need to make a dash for the plug socket every evening, our old brick phones suddenly look at lot more appealing.

 

…Snake

 

Candy Crush who? Flappy what? For those of us who owned a Nokia back in the day, nothing can beat the classic Snake games. Sure, you can download Minecraft and Grand Theft Auto to your phone these days, but there was something quite wonderful – not to mention addictive – about the four-buttoned charm of Snake.

…flipping and twisting and sliding

 

Mobile phones have kind of all settled on a single shape at this point: a flat and uninteresting slab form factor. But back when the tech was still young, we had all kinds of shapes to play around with – from flip phones, to twisty mobiles, to slideable ones like the LG Chocolate.

 

…getting to disconnect

 

It’s nice being able use your phone to get directions, look up train times, or read about Serbia’s raspberry export industry whenever and wherever you like, but every now and then it’s nice to just disconnect. And that can be difficult when the entire internet is in your pocket begging for attention.

 

In the 2G days, switching off for a bit was far easier. You were essentially separated from the internet, so it wasn’t there to distract you – and to disconnect from the world entirely, all you really had to do was step outside of a major city where there wasn’t any signal.

 

So our old phones were rather nice in a way – but then again there are some things about them that we’re glad to see the back of…

 

WE DON’T MISS…

 

…every phone having a different charging port

 

Finding a spare charging cable used to be its own special kind of hell. The port was different on every single brand of phone, making buying a new cable or borrowing someone else’s charger far too complicated.

 

These days, it’s way, way easier to figure out – your phone will either have a USB or a lightning port. Boom, done.

 

…the measly storage space

 

My first phone could hold 16 text messages. Call records were limited to 10. When you look its specs up on GSMArena, under the memory section it just says “no”.

 

In a world where our phones can have up to 256GB of internal memory, and space for up to a 2TB microSD card… I don’t think any of us miss the teeny tiny storage space that mobiles used to have.

 

…WAP browsers

 

Today, we do more web browsing on our smartphones than we do on our computers – which is easy to do, given how smoothly websites work on mobile browsers. On early mobiles, however, it was a different story.

 

WAP browsers could access the internet over 2G – 2G! – which meant it took about two minutes and half your pay-as-you-go credit just to load a page. Looking something up online was slower and more expensive than a Southern Rail train.

 

…polyphonic ringtones

 

I think we’re all very, very glad that phone speakers have got less tinny and horrific as time has gone on. And now our smartphones are more like little computers, we can copy across our favourite music files to use as ringtones – rather than spending £1.99 on a crummy MIDI file that sort of sounded like a song in the charts at the moment.

 

…trying to type with the numeric keyboard

 

Was there anything more frustrating than writing a text on a keyboard that only has nine keys? Even T9 – the software that worked out what word you wanted from just one press of each key – didn’t help a whole lot… though it was still probably more accurate than the iPhone’s autocorrect.
