“Not recommended. Avoid, there are way better around.”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Darious (3 reviews written)

As others already stated before, the company will tease you with higher offer, then will write to you that there were "scratches all over the screen and back cover". Phone has been kept in a dedicated pouch at all times and the screen was "gorilla", so the only scratches existing must have been done by them. But I doubt there were any scratches at all. The point was to lower the offer and put it down below average. Today is the third day since the day they sent me an email in which they said… Read Full Review

“Do not use them”

Written on: 13/07/2014

This company is awful. They offered £130 and when they received it reduced it to £90 I called and was not happy with this so they offered me £97 then increased it to £100 then £110. I told them this was not acceptable, so the rude gentlemen put the phone down. After numerous times of trying to call back and they kept putting the phone down. I drove from Coventry to Birmingham to find know knew where this was company was based. We then found a shop with shutters half down. I finally got my… Read Full Review

“AVOID...AVOID....AVOID”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by 262Dean (1 review written)

Sent of IPhone 4s in excellent condition, they sent email saying phone was in bad condition (scratches, dints etc) which was a total lie and were offering a reduced payment of £90 instead of £120. I asked for phone to be returned. After a week no phone returned and by now I was looking at the reviews with alarm.. Decided to phone and ask either reduced payment or phone returned ( at this point I decided either would be ok). After another week of phoning and being told by some idiot at end of… Read Full Review

Sent off my Iphone 4s in immaculate condition, received an email saying it was covered in scratches which i knew was not the case.

Called the "customer service" number to be told, "we'll pay tomorrow". Still no payment, calling trading standards now… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by dvMunoz243 (1 review written)

I sent them my Samsung galaxy and they responded to advise they would reduce the amount as it had bad scratches all over it, which was rubbish as it was in mint condition having always been in a case. Still fighting to get some money. No response to emails and on the rare occasions you get through on the phone, some idiot tells you that your cheque has been posted but won't tell you when. I have had them put the phone down on me several times. Am going to report to trading standards… Read Full Review

“DO NOT TOUCH WITH A BARGE POLE!!!”

Written on: 25/06/2014

Sent phone once initial fee was agreed by email. When they received phone they advised that it was damaged and offered much lower. When I declined they upped it slightly, I still declined as nowhere near the first offer and demanded they send phone back. After a couple of days of not answering my emails I rang and asked where my phone was, the guy first said it was still with the technician then when pressed when I would receive my phone, he advised that they had lost it! So can imagine I was… Read Full Review

“No money received. Suspect phone used to hack ID.”

Written on: 23/06/2014

Son's phone sent off, no money ever received. Worse, we forgot to clear the phone before sending, and my son's Facebook and other accounts had bogus postings suspiciously soon after phonerecyclers.co.uk received the phone. These guys look legitimate: the website looks fine, they email you to make you feel it's all running smoothly. We contacted them by email to complain about the hacking, and by phone to complain about the lack of payment -- and they respond politely and promise it will all… Read Full Review

“Sent the phone and not received the money Please do...”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by ygChase382 (1 review written)

Sent the phone and not received the money Please do not use this . If they had any desire in not appearing like complete crooks they would hire someone to leave a professional voice message . Not the mumbled incoherent rubbish that is on there. I've just called them and told them I have ten iPhones for sale in the hope that they may at least return my call… Read Full Review

“Still waiting for my money”

Written on: 17/06/2014 by esme313 (1 review written)

My daughter sent her phone to them, they replied within 5 days saying that the phone had a damaged screen and thus they offered a lower price. Reluctantly we accepted, knowing full well that the phone was in pristine condition when it was sent. After 6 weeks we are still waiting for money. I emailed them and they replied that their 'accounts team will look into it' I have rang their number and it goes straight through to an answering machine, with a foreign speaking man mumbling something… Read Full Review

Sent phone over 1 month ago, got email to say original price needed to be reduced due to scratches ( the phone had no scratches as it has always been in a case ), however I agreed price and was told that payment would be made within 48 hours. No payment arrived so called them after waiting 10 days and was told that I would be paid the following day - that was 3 weeks ago!! Still no money! They do not reply to emails and now there is no answer when I call, i just get a mumbled message about a… Read Full Review

“Absolutely horrendous ordeal!!! ”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by 217West (1 review written)

Don't send anything to this website! I sent my Samsung S3 off and they are claiming to not have received my phone! They continued to email me however when I sent them my proof of postage, they still (seven days later!) to reply to me. They have begun to ignore my emails about the situation. They give a false sense of security and a massive waste of time as they have robbed me of a phone and refusing to pay my £76!!… Read Full Review

“Still wating for my money!!!”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by spongeman (1 review written)

Received email saying price for my i-phone was below initial price offered due to supposed scratches on my phone, which there wasn't. Accepted lower offer reluctantly but no money has been paid to me yet a month later. Emails have all been ignored, the phone number mostly cuts to an answer machine. When they do answer the phone I am told that it will be paid in 2 days. This has happened twice but still no money received. Don't use this company, a really shoddy outfit… Read Full Review
