What an excellent idea. Recycle your old phones for cash!
I had three of them lying around and I thought I’d see who offered the best deal.
I started with the two most advertised options because I’ve been brainwashed into thinking everything I see on television is true.
But then thanks to Google and competitive advertising I came across a few providers offering the same service so I thought to myself, ‘right, who’s going to give me the most money for these wastes of (drawer) space?’
I may have spent more time than necessary trying to find out and it’s possible that if I had been working I could have earned more in the time it took to find an extra £1 her or there.
On top of which I’ve written this but if it helps, why not…
I have looked into the following mobile phone buying companies:
The phones I have are: Nokia 7250, Nokia 6233 & Motorola Pebl (U6)
And here’s what I found:
Company / Phone
|Nokia 7250||Motorola Pebl||Nokia 6233||Total|
|Mobile Phone Xchange||£No listing||£No listing||£31||£31 (1)|
|GreenTec||£No listing||£6.11||£32.74||£38.86 (2)|
At first glance it looks as though Fone Bank are the leaders but GreenTec come a very close 3rd with only 2 of the phones.
To maximize on he potential value of my phones, if I sell 2 to GreenTec and one to Mopay or Fone Bank I’ll actually make £42.86
What this suggests is if you want to make the most money you can from your old phones it pays to shop around a bit.
Or you could use one of the comparison websites set up to find who offers the most for your phone and of the few I’ve seen the best so far is http://www.compare-phonerecyclers.com but, they don’t include GreenTec which could offer the most!
