If you have recently purchased a new phone, you may be wondering what you should do with your old one. Some people will just discard their handset into a drawer and forget about it. Others may give their old phone to a relative. And others yet will sell their phone to the local pawn shop. But, have you ever considered selling your old mobile online?
There are many reasons why you should consider going down the online route when it comes to selling cell phone. First of all, you are likely to get a better price online than if you were to sell your phone to your local pawn shop or similar type store. This is usually because these stores want to make the most from the sale of your old phone as possible, so they will give you the absolute minimum they can – sometimes this can even just be pennies.
And, if your phone happens to be damaged in any way, the likelihood is, they will not take it off your hands, as they will not be able to sell it on, or they would first need to have the item repaired before they could make the sale. There is nothing worse than passing the window of that shop later in the week, and seeing your old cell phone on the shelves for sale, at a price 4 or 5 times more than the shop actually gave you to buy it.
So, there are plenty of reasons to go down the online route to sell your old cell phone. First of all, even if your old mobile phone is damaged, you will be able to sell it quite easily online. Usually, it is as easy as searching the make on the site you have chosen to sell your phone on. From there, you can choose the model and condition of the phone, and be given an instant quote there and then.
Even a damaged phone can be sold online, and usually for a lot better price than the local pawn could offer. There is also the environmental factors to be considered. Even if your phone is damaged, and cannot be used functionally, there are still going to be functional parts in your phone, such as battery packs, micro chips, memory cards etc, and all of these components can be stripped away and given a new lease of life in another handset, somewhere else in the world. This is another greater reason to sell on your phone, even if it’s damaged, rather than throwing it in a drawer or into the refuse.
And what’s better is, if you decide to sell, sending the phone off to the company is Freepost in many cases, so it will actually cost you nothing! Just another reason why it is a great idea to sell your phone online. There are many pros & very few cons involved in making that sale online. It couldn’t be easier.
