I was a bit cautious using this company as not many reviews out there but have to say was very happy with the service. email confirmations on receiving the phone and on the payment being made, this company offered a great price, more than alternative sites. I would highly recommend this company and will do to friends who are upgrading in the near future.
Great communication. Brilliant functionality...and this was the best price I was offered for phone (iPhone 5) Money arrived in bank 3 days after posting phone. Exact amount agreed.
Apple Recycle Review
As you can possibly tell from the name of the company, Apple Recycle focuses on buying your unwanted, old iPhone models so you've got that cash to put towards your new favourite Apple product. Or Android we're not here to judge!
Unfortunately, this means that if you are trying to sell any other brand of phone, or any tablets, old sat navs or games consoles then you will have to look elsewhere to find a price for your old device. Similarly, you might not find some older models of the iPhone on this site either.
But if you do have the right phone then there are definitely pros to use the site. On their homepage they claim to offer you the best guaranteed quote on your iPhone compared to any other mobile recycling company.
So how do you sell your mobile?
Phone recycling isn't always seen as an easy process, but if there's one thing that's obvious about Apple Recycle website it's the simplicity of it all.
On the homepage, simply click on your iPhone device, then select the model and click to state whether it's in working or non-working condition. If you're confused by which category yours falls under, then read the simply bullet points underneath each heading for a clear explanation. Or if you're still unsure after that, you can visit the sites FAQs page where you'll find a contact email and phone number at the bottom.
It also gives you step by step instructions, and a picture example, for how to delete your iCloud account, as for security reasons they cannot accept any iPhone with the iCloud account still attached.
After following all of these steps, simply add the device to your basket and select which payment method you'd like to follow the site offers bank transfer or cheque as options for you. It also gives you the option of Fast Track DIY postage where you print their FREEPOST label and package the iPhone yourself, or Phone Pack where you request packaging from the recycler and send yourself, perhaps choosing Special Delivery so you can track the journey of your phone to the company.
Once you have confirmed all your details, Apple Recycle will send you what you have requested and as soon as your phone has been sent to them, and they have checked it over, they promise to send payment the same day. This means it could be with you within 24 hours if you choose BACS fast payment cheques will obviously take longer.
