“Took £165 and got nothing”

Written on: 19/04/2014 by Justicen1970 (1 review written)

An iPod was purchased which did not say it was recycled, without normal packaging and with no guarantee so it was sent back to the address they gave me. I was told this had to be done quickly or it would be too late. Ebay Resolution Centre then contacted me with an address to send it back but it had already been sent. The seller maintains that he has not received it. It was sent as a First Class signed for item. The case is now closed and I am out of pocket by £165 and do not even have the… Read Full Review

“deserves a 0* rating”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Yamilet1971 (1 review written)

Absolutely terrible!! My FULLY working phone, was valued at £40. I waited more than 4 weeks for payment...only to receive a cheque for £10!!! Due to 'a small scratch on the back cover' really?! What Gadget Recycling company, can not overcome a small scratch...to the back of a fully working mobile phone?! After requesting that my phone was returned to me, I was told 'this item has already been recycled. Sorru'. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone!!! … Read Full Review

“Rip off merchant!”

Written on: 07/03/2014 by Reginaw228 (1 review written)

I sent to i-phones: One wasn't working and I said this when I acquired the quote. When I sent it in, they said it wasn't working and didn't pay anything. The other was a 4S in good condition, having been kept in a case. They offered me £25 less than their original quote, saying that there was some damage. I needed the money and accepted the quote. Then they said that they had a problem with Pay Pal and would I either accept a cheque or provide them with bank details (NO CHANCE ON THE LATTER!)I… Read Full Review

“Reduced offer price because of minimal to no scratches”

Written on: 21/02/2014

Offered £82 for a 3 year old iPhone 4. But after "inspection" only gave £67.20. They found scratches which I don't believe we're there. And considering it's a 3 year old phone it is bound to have some… Read Full Review

“Rip Off”

Written on: 20/02/2014

Quoted £210 for two iPhone 4's and when they received it - we were offered £60 for both due to 'damage' - which is rubbish! NOW they will not return them to me as I did not respond within the 3 days (away on holiday for the weekend). What a rip off - stay away from this awful company… Read Full Review

“Ripoff Merchants Extraordinaire!”

Written on: 13/02/2014 by kelvin1950 (1 review written)

Sent them an Iphone 4s, they'd valued it at £150. Once they had received it, they revalued it at £120 due to "some noticeable wear and tear. Scratches on front/back". Yeah, right. A phone that's always had a screen protector and case. It had no marks on it when it left here. Rather than allow them to make even 1p from my phone I paid to get it back. I'll put it on ebay and at least I can govern the price up to a point. The problem is - I need the phone sent back!!! Almost 2 weeks and no sign… Read Full Review

Kelvin1950's Response to kelvin1950's Review

Written on: 04/04/2014

Subsequently got the phone back after paying the return postage. Looked OK to me! Sold it on ebay for £190. That's clearly the way to do it and stop these bottom feeders from living off our money. Kelvin1950.

“GadgetTrader - Please do not be so unfortunate as to...”

Written on: 12/02/2014 by leemark2k3 (1 review written)

GadgetTrader - Please do not be so unfortunate as to use this website. Company promised my £231 for my iPhone 5. I used a recycle your phone compare site and these were offering the most. Unfortunately this is probably how they have reeled people in in the past. The phone had been used for a total of 1 day and had absolutely no marks on it whatsoever. The website states that payment is within 24 hours of receiving your phone and that you are kept up to date via email throughout the entire… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE THEY WILL TAKE YOUR ITEM FOR NOTHING”

Written on: 09/09/2013

I am furious as I have had an awful experience with gadgets4everyone. I was turning in my old iPhone 4 which they valued at £100. I have had experience with similar companies so I knew that the value they would suggest on receiving the phone would be lower but I didn't not expect the following: I received an email saying my phone was worth £0 (this is a year old phone in a very good state), i then of course opted to have it returned to me and duly paid the £5 postaged they asked for. I then… Read Full Review

“Use someone else”

Written on: 20/06/2013 by BillAllen (1 review written)

Delay after delay on top of receiving reduced price for an iPad in prefect condition. REF 83298 When I looked at trading in my iPad I wondered why Gadgets4everyone were offering quite a bit more than anyone else. Now I realise they are doing so to get their hands on your goods so they can discount the price and worse still you then have to chase them to get paid. I was originally offered £228 for my iPad but after a long time holding it they told me I'd only get £182 for it. I guess they… Read Full Review

“Not impressed!”

Written on: 04/06/2013

I was happy with the £32 quote. However, when they received my iPod touch they lowered the price by 35%, which was insane as it was in perfect condition bar a few minor scratches. When I complained they upped the offer to £25.60. I was not happy with this, but was not going to pay £5 just to get my gadget back! So grudgingly accepted. Be very careful if going through a comparison site. Will not be sending them anything else! I would advise you to avoid and use a more genuine company… Read Full Review

“Claimed that packages were never received”

Written on: 11/01/2013 by AAspden (1 review written)

I sent 2 well wrapped packages to Gadgets4everyone one whose quotation was £57 the other £36, the larger package had the printed address label on. I obtained proof of posting which has been presented to both the company and the Post Office when it became clear that neither package had allegedly been received. I have put in a claim to the Post Office who have referred me back to Gadgets4everyone who have said they would support me with my claim but then give no indication as to how they… Read Full Review

“Incompetent ripoff merchants”

Written on: 18/12/2012

After comparing multiple websites, Gadgets4everyone promised me the highest amount on my phone (£80) so I went with them. Once they received the phone this was then immediately dropped to £68 with no definitive reason given, just a link to their T&C's, where they reserve the right to change their minds if they feel like it. Getting it back and eBaying it would be more hassle than losing a further £12 (already spent £6 posting it to them) so I just decided to settle for that amount. They… Read Full Review

“Quick, Easy and well valued.”

Written on: 09/11/2012

After a recommendation from a friend I went to their website for an evaluation and was fairly happy with the value, slightly more than other places I looked. I sent my iPod off (freepost yay) and received an email a few days later with an estimate a bit more than then I got on the site, payment was sent straight to my bank and was recieved within a few days time. Definitely recommending them to others and will be using again if I need this service again… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, easier than eBay & super fast...”

Written on: 21/07/2012

This website offers a high class, speedy service for people who want to sell their used electronics items, fast! The website is very straight-forward and easy to use. You answer a few questions on the condition of your items and they offer resonable estimates based on what they feel your items are worth. Once you've recieved your quote you can send your items off freepost! I recieved an email 2 days after i'd sent my ipod out and was to suprised with the final amount they were paying me (they… Read Full Review
