Selling your tablet couldn't be easier. Simply follow these steps:
1. Find your tablet: Pick your tablet’s manufacturer and model from the tool above. Or, type its name into the search bar at the top of the page and let auto-suggest do all the work for you. Once you find it, give it a click.
Tip: Make sure you pick the model with the correct amount of storage - then you’ll get the right quotes when you click through.
2. Compare your prices: Have a gander at all the quotes that buyers and recyclers are offering for your tablet. We’ve got up-to-the-minute pricing from over 40 buyers across the site, and that includes hundreds of offers on tablets. Have a look at the ones for yours, pick one you like the look of, and enter your details to get a postage pack.
Tip: Don’t forget to look at the customer ratings next to each provider - we source thousands of reviews from people who use our service.
3. Get your cash! Once you get your postage pack in the mail, send your tablet off to the recycler - and once it arrivs on their doorstep, you get your money! The company will pay you via bank transfer, PayPal, cheque, or whatever method you prefer. And boom, you’re quids-in.
Tip: Recycling prices fluctuate ALL. THE. TIME. Check back regularly, and if you see a good offer, snap it up while you can.
Why sell your tablet?
It’s been a long time since tablet computers were first introduced to the world - the first iPad came out in 2010 - and boy, have they improved since then. If you got your tablet a couple of years ago, you’re probably looking to upgrade it pretty soon - so why not make some money off your old one while you’re at it?
Even an old tablet can still pull in a great price from a recycler, whether it’s made by Apple, Samsung, Google, HTC, Microsoft - you name it.
What happens to recycled tablets?
The exact same thing that happens to recycled smartphones, computers, or other electronics.
Most tablets get given a thorough spring clean and fix up, with any broken, slow, or dodgy parts repaired or replaced. They’re given a complete check over to make sure they’re the best they can be, and then they’re sold on as refurbished tablets - either right here in the UK, or overseas in emerging markets.
Some tablets, however, are too far gone. If yours is broken beyond repair - or simply a bit too old to be useful - it’ll instead be salvaged for parts that are melted down to make new stuff. Tablets contain bits of gold, nickel, cadmium, platinum, and tons of other valuable materials that can be used for other things.
Can I sell a broken tablet?
Yes, you can sell your tablet even if it’s broken or damaged. It won’t be worth quite as much as a fully functional one, but don’t worry - you can still get cash for it. Just make sure you select the correct condition on the results pane so that you get the most accurate quotes.
If the recycler gets your tablet and finds it’s in a slightly different condition than they were expecting, they’ll email you a revised quote, which you can then choose to either accept or reject (in which case they’ll post your tablet back to you).
