You and your order
Before you send a device to us, you will need to complete an order form for each device, after which we will provide you with an estimated price. Your order form must be complete and accurate, and you must update us if any of the information changes. If the order form information is not complete or accurate, you may not receive the full estimated price.
Submitting an order will create an account on our site for you to access and will secure your quoted price for 14 days, after this period if we haven’t received your device your order will be cancelled and you will need to create a new order on our website if you still wish to send us your device.
To submit an order and sell us a device, you must be:
- a UK resident or accessing our site from the UK
- able to enter into a binding contract
- at least 18 years old (or have obtained your parent or guardian’s consent to the relevant sale for the relevant sum).
Following acceptance of your order form we will send you a FREE tracked label via your confirmation email. When sending your device, please ensure your device is packed well and your order number is wrote on the label.
Any device you send us must match the make and model from your order form and by sending it to us you confirm that it:
- Powers on and off.
- Is complete with all parts.
- Includes its battery within the casing.
- Is not crushed or liquid-damaged.
- Is not PIN locked, iCloud locked, Google locked or Activation locked.
- Is not “jail-broken” or similar and that the firmware has not been altered.
- Has not been opened or tampered with.
- Is original and meets the manufacturer’s original UK specifications.
- Be owned by you not blacklisted as lost/stolen.
- Only be locked to a network if you have specified it in your order.
If you send us a device which does not meet the above requirements, is not listed on our website, we will contact you and offer a revised price or we will refuse purchase of your device. If we refuse to buy it, you may ask us to return it (You will be required to pay postage) or we can recycle it for you. If we are unable to contact you regarding your device within 14 days of receiving the device, we will automatically process it or recycle it. You will not receive any payment for devices which are returned or recycled.
It is important to REMOVE ALL ACCOUNTS from the device to make sure it’s not ACTIVATION or ICLOUD locked, or PASS CODE locked before sending them into us.
We accept boxes, chargers and accessories but they do not increase the estimated price and we may not be able to return them if you request for your device to be returned.
Grading your device online.
To receive the full quoted price for your device, you need to make sure you grade it accurately or we may revise the quoted offer.
Any devices that won’t power on (possible dead devices) will take longer than 24 hours to process. Until it arrives for testing we won’t know the condition of the device, therefor we can’t guarantee the online quote for devices that don’t power up.
New – A unused device, boxed and sealed with all accessories.
Working – All parts of your device need to be fully functional, the device housing needs to be in good condition it can have minor scratches but not smashed/bent/dented, the software needs to be fully functional.
Broken – This option is for damaged devices for example damaged casing, LCD touch screen faults, cracked screens, damaged or non-functioning cameras, broken buttons/ keypad damage, deep scratches or dents, charging issues, microphone or earpiece damage, cracked/chipped backs, battery faults etc.
Devices that are liquid damaged or have motherboard faults, for example, software problems/multiple audio issues/turning off and on etc. This damage is not classed as ‘faulty/broken’. Devices in this condition will be classed as ‘dead’ devices as they have permanent irreparable damage. We do still accept ‘dead’ devices however we have a separate price bracket for ‘dead’ devices this is considerably lower than all the offered online prices. if you would like to know what you would get for a ‘dead’ device contact us. If you wish to send us a ‘dead’ device you can still send them to us and grade them ‘faulty’ but please add a note to your order or email us and make us aware as you will be offered a new revised price once we have tested it and assessed the damage.
We aim to update our site regularly to keep up to date with the price changes and any changes to our terms and conditions. We reserve the right to change our website details without the need to inform the users. We may change our site content at any time. If the need arises, we may suspend access to our site. We make every effort to ensure that all the information on our site is always as accurate as possible and in the event of an error we will attempt to correct such error as soon as possible.
Our website clearly displays the price of devices in New, Working and Faulty/Broken conditions, so there are no nasty surprises. Our price promise guarantees you receive the full price quoted for your device, providing it meets our Terms & Conditions of Supply. * iCloud locked devices will void this guarantee as will dead devices.
Once we receive your device, if we do find that we need to adjust your offer it will be because the device does not meet our terms and conditions, we will email you with a new price offer for your device. If you are not completely satisfied with the revised offer, you can request to have the device returned to you, a small postage fee may be in place for the return of your device depending on the circumstances.
Revised orders will be automatically processed for payment if you do not reply to our revised offer email within 14 days. Price promise does not apply to locked devices, stolen devices or dead devices.
We will usually send payment the same day your device is processed this is our 24 hour payment guarantee. During busy periods it may take longer for us to process your order. We will email you and update the order tracking page once your device has been added to the processing queue. Please note we do not process devices on weekends or public holidays so this may extend your payment period.

Postage and returns
YOU MUST ENSURE THAT YOU ARE HAPPY TO SEND THE DEVICE TO US AND THAT IT IS WITHIN YOUR RIGHTS TO DO SO.
You send your device to us at your own risk. We cannot be responsible for devices we do not receive, or for the condition in which we receive devices. We strongly recommend that you pack your device carefully to minimise the risk of damage. The free post label does not guarantee that the device will be received in the same condition as sent. We recommend that you wrap your device in bubble wrap and place it in a strong rigid box (ideally the original device box) so it cannot move or rotate in transit. All devices must be sent in accordance with Royal Mail guidance.
If you do not use the free post label provided by us, you will be responsible for obtaining a receipt from Royal Mail and retaining this for tracking and insurance purposes. If you use the free post label provided, your phone will only be insured in transit by Royal Mail up to Royal Mail’s limits.
Please note: your device will be tracked online to our local delivery office. It will then appear as “delivered” on the Royal Mail system, but this means delivered to our local delivery office. From there it can take 1-2 days to arrive with us and will not be tracked directly to our premises. Once we receive it, we’ll let you know.
If your device is lost or damaged in the post, we will advise you how you might claim against the Royal Mail, however we cannot guarantee you will be successful.
Returning your device will be free of charge and tracked using Royal Mail if we are responsible for the reason for it being returned. If we are returning the device to you because its locked, a dead device or not listed correctly by yourself then that will be your liability under these circumstances you will be charged a postage fee. Your device will be held with us for up to 14 days until we receive the payment via PayPal. If you refuse to pay your device will be recycles after 14 days, we reserve the right to do so.
Your completion of the order form is an offer to us to purchase the device. The contract between us and you will be formed, subject to these terms and conditions, when we confirm receipt of your order form. The contract between you and us is conditional upon us receiving the device and it (and you) complying with these terms and conditions. The estimated price may be varied as set out in these terms and conditions. Our contract with you will terminate or expire when we buy, recycle or return your phone in accordance with these terms and conditions.

If a court finds part of our contract with you unenforceable, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms and conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
This contract is between you and us. You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under your contract with us without our prior written consent. We may transfer our rights and obligations under this contract at any time (although we will let you know and will ensure that this does not affect your rights under your contract with us). No person other than you and us shall have any rights to enforce any of the terms of this contract.
Even if we delay in enforcing our contract with you, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms and conditions, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking our contract with you, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
