Phone recycling is a growing trend and means that your old handset travels from your lounge to a company warehouse and you will receive cash in exchange. Many companies also offer a voucher alternative which is sometimes worth slightly more. The general process is that you will receive a freepost envelope when you submit your details through the company website and once you have received confirmation of its arrival, you should receive your chosen reward.
The amount of money that you receive is based on the model of your handset and what condition it is in. The price for a working handset is always higher than for a non working handset of the same model, but you can still receive a good amount of money for a damaged phone. Be sure to check out the criteria for the website to ensure that it is reputable.
For newer handsets, you can often get up to £150+, as these are the handsets that are more re-usable. In many cases, ‘old mobile phones’ to you may still be smart and savvy models that are flying off the shelves elsewhere in Britain.
Exchanging old mobiles for cash is often the most popular option for owners of old phones as the money is deposited directly into your bank balance and is, in perspective, an easy way to earn some extra money.
