What do / don't you accept?

We accept a large range of mobile devices and tablets. We buy both working and damaged and will also recycle devices on your behalf even if they have no value. If you cannot find a device on our platform email us at and we may still make you an offer.

Is the price quoted the value I will get?

To ensure a seamless experience, please send us your device within 14 days of receiving your quoted price, based on the grade you've provided. By doing this, we can guarantee the price we've quoted and process your payment on the same day we receive your device, as long as it matches the grade and condition you described. If your device arrives after the 14-day window, there's no need to worry. We'll still be keen to purchase it, but we'll need to offer you the current market price, which might vary. Upon receiving your device, we'll conduct a thorough inspection to confirm that the grade and condition align with your description. If we notice discrepancies and need to adjust the price, we'll get in touch with you right away via email with an updated quote. Should this new offer not meet your expectations, please inform us, and we'll return your device promptly. A quick note on our inspection process: we assess your device with its screen both on and off. Observing the device in these two states allows us to identify any surface scratches more effectively, particularly when the screen is off. This meticulous approach ensures we grade your device accurately for the guaranteed same-day payment. We truly value your cooperation and strive to make this process straightforward and transparent. Thank you for choosing to work with us!

Do you pay more for items that have never been opened or used?

Yes, as that will come under our highest grade of quality. This value is based on Brand New in a sealed original box with supplied accessories.
