“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 13/03/2016 by Geovanni320 (1 review written)

Have only just received my modest payment after six weeks and numerous chasing emails. Their site states immediate payment which is totally misleading. They also requested a five star reveiw rating within a few days of receiving my phone - well before any payment was forthcoming. Do not use these people their service is disappointing and misleading… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 12/03/2016 by hnFlood1985 (1 review written)

Like many selected these as they quoted top price on a comparison site, but there is a reason why they 'offer' the highest to tempt you in. I said the phone was in a working condition, not new condition. However, after reviewing my phone they offered me over £100 less. Now, that's their prerogative, if they don't want my phone, send it back, but at the end of the e-mail it said if I don't respond by end of business tomorrow they would assume I'm OK with the new price. I declined the offer… Read Full Review

“Rip off!!! Don't use them. ”

Written on: 12/03/2016 by Asiag131 (1 review written)

Sent my immaculate iphone 5S off to them when they offered £126. Actually sent cheque for £18.50 as they said there was dust under the screen through either the screen being replaced or removed - to which neither is correct. Asked them to return my iphone but cannot as it's been sent off to recycling.... Two words. RIP OFF. Don't use this company… Read Full Review

“Abysmal!!!!!”

Written on: 11/03/2016 by DMS1234 (1 review written)

I upgraded my handset recently, I went online for the best deal on selling my previous phone, which was an iphone 5. I have previously sold two phones after upgrading and from experience it should be a pretty straightforward experience with no hassle. IGADGETS RECYCLED stated they were the top payer at just over £100 so I decided to proceed happy that the new handset was costing me £130 and that the difference of £30 was a good deal, they also stated that payment can take 3 days to get to… Read Full Review

“Totally awful!”

Written on: 07/03/2016 by Robertsmz167 (1 review written)

Stay clear of this outfit. Sent phone in to them as they claimed to offer best price for it on comparison site. They then offered half the price for it due to a slight cosmetic mark. I then spent weeks trying to get my money from them and their initial payment transfer time is scandalously slow 7 working days- so I waited. No surprise that the money hadn't arrived in my account after this time and am still waiting. I recommend using a different company!… Read Full Review

I second this review! Awful company, my phone was immaculate, they claimed it was locked which it was not, they wanted to pay £50 rather than the £102 they had originally stated. They now want me to pay £5 to have my phone returned.

They have done the same to my husband too. It is criminal!!!

“AVOID AT ALL COST!”

Written on: 06/03/2016 by Stewartti289 (1 review written)

I am absolutely disgusted with this company. I sent in a perfectly working phone (I was using it up until the day it was sent in!) and their first quote was reasonable. Then when they received it they claimed it was broken so they would only pay £5. When I told them to return it as it was working when I sent it and I had other quotes online, they told me I had to pay £5 for delivery even though they did not evidence it was broken! Then I agreed to the payment and they had to be… Read Full Review

“Deliberate stalling tatics”

Written on: 02/03/2016 by dmorgans (1 review written)

Would not recommend. Its taken over 5 weeks to get my money - and only after the threat of going through the small claims court. Initially everything seemed fine -the offer was good and payment seemed rapid - except it never happened that week. The only positive compared yo many others was that i did get the full price quoted initially on-line… Read Full Review

“ABSOLUTE RUBBISH. DO NOT USE THEM.”

Written on: 25/02/2016 by HonestAndy (1 review written)

Agreed price for iphone 5 was £102, phone was immaculate, when they received phone price dropped to £84. Same day money transfer takes 7 WORKING days to clear you dont get it same day, even after numerous emails I still didnt get my money. Also it takes 7 days to test your phone before they start the money transfer process. Spent hour and a half in total on 2 phone calls, spoke to someone who agreed to transfer money immediately as my payment was 4 days over due, still didnt get my… Read Full Review

Same thing with myself. Sent and email telling them I was taking them to small claims court and billing them for my time, phone calls, emails solicitor and professional advice fees plus cost of court order, which I would have done, money was in my account within 2 hours. I have been in touch with trading standards anout them.

“Terrible and deciteful”

Written on: 12/02/2016 by hype_9685 (1 review written)

They offered me £202 for my immaculate phone. It ad no scratches, marks or anything. It had always been in a case and was perfect. I sent it off, carefully packaging it and paying an extra £7 to send it recorded delivery only for them to email me to say that they can only give me £150 due to "the cosmetic condition". I have now asked for my phone back, even though they will charge me for the privilidge. They tempt you with the best prices only to refuse to pay even when the phone is in… Read Full Review

“PLEASE DO NOT use this company”

Written on: 11/02/2016 by Cmac1980 (1 review written)

They promise payment within 7 days. Trust me, they have no intention of paying. I asked for my phone back as they broke the contract by not paying and they said they have already recycled it. This is against the law. I would have preferred if someone had robbed me. Lucky for me I work with lawyers and know my rights so will pursue it even though I shouldn't have to. Worst company I have ever come across. They should be shut down and locked up… Read Full Review

“Worst company ever.”

Written on: 11/02/2016 by owen1979 (1 review written)

They play on your words. I send my phone off in December. Nothing. Eventually I phoned and I was told they recevied in 29th January. I begain getting lots off spam email one from a company called Trustpilot. Then I get an email saying I got to wait 7 working days. Still not received the payment. If they lying I will report further. All for a phone 4s 32 gb with one faulty button. £10,06 not worth the hustle. Better if you fix yourself or to give to a relative the phone. Sell too someone else… Read Full Review

“Initially they offered me £50 for my mint condition...”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by 27Beach (1 review written)

Initially they offered me £50 for my mint condition Xperia Z1. I accepted it as all the other companies were only offering 35. The phone left here in perfect condition. No scratches, cracks or faults whatsoever. Within a few days they reduce the offer to 35 because 'of it's condition '. Knowing that I wouldn't get more than this elsewhere I just accepted the offer and receive an email confirming my payment will be in my account within 7 working days. After 7 working days still no money… Read Full Review

“Appauling company AVOID AVOID AVOID”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by Yesenia244 (1 review written)

This company doesn't even deserve the one star rating. After obnoxiously deciding to use this company, simply because it offered the most over other companies, I am appalled. First off, I have been waiting what seems like a lifetime for my payment. I have contacted them every single day, and the same person 'Jan' responds to emails, giving me the same reply every time "your payment will ne cleared by midnight" blah blah blah. I feel stupid for not reading the reviews on this company before… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2016

I'm having simular bad experience with igagets. I posted my phone to them in December. They said the phone arrived in 29 January and blamed the postal service. I had a free post pack sent to me from them. I got stuck with no phone and no money so I decided to give igagets a ring. My phone is now apprenty in the process off being paid for me. I was sent an email saying 7 working days with is long compared to tbe time a bank transer actually takes half a day. So no i would not trust them to pay and I got spam from some survay company called trustpiCrap ExtraEcrap I never wanted.

hi out of interest have you received your money yet? I've been waiting 3 weeks I phone every day get told there's banking issue but money will be in my account by midnight. I have called citizens advice and they said all I can do is complain in writing and then take them to a small claims court which will probably cost more than the phone I'm so frustrated!

I even hassled them on social media, just letting other people know of my experience... They blocked me! They especially hate negative reviews on social media. I still wish I read reviews before going ahead and trying to get the 'best deal'

“Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 09/02/2016 by VIXROWLAND (1 review written)

Avoid this company at all costs, I recently sent my phone and have now been offered a fraction of the price. When I refused I was offered a second price, still less than half originally offered on the website and the phone is immaculate. When I asked for my phone to be returned I was told to pay a £5 fee. Every email I have sent has received a threatening replying saying if I do not respond within a ridiculous time frame they will keep my phone at the lowest price offered. I have since read… Read Full Review
