Written on: 01/08/2020 by ShayleeAndersen323 (1 review written)

Please please do not buy from these people. They give you a price and then once they get your handset they half the price stating something is wrong with the phone. They also ask you to post and then do not refund postal charges. Police, press, watchdog etc all involved. They will be shut down soon. Do not use these people. Check out the reviews on Facebook, Twitter etc… Read Full Review

“Disreputable and dishonest mobile phone recycling company”

Written on: 23/07/2020 by GRWilliamson (1 review written)

I used this company to sell my I-Phone 5S because they made me a good initial offer and I accepted their Trust Pilot accreditation at face value. If only I had read their reviews. My phone was immaculate as it had always had a screen cover and protective case. It was unblemished and looked like new. They e-mailed me to say they were reducing the offer as my phone was scratched and I had misrepresented the condition. I told them they were mistaken and asked them to check the phone and honour the… Read Full Review

“STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY ”

Written on: 30/04/2020 by Enjef300 (1 review written)

Unfortunately I was sucked into the initial offer on this site. I was selling my wife's galaxy 9 plus. This was less than 2years old and had, from the moment of being unpacked, been kept in a Samsung wallet style case. It had no damage to the screen or case. I marked this condition as good and was offered £251. This in hindsight should have rung alarm bells as the next highest offer was £185. I arranged a pick up (which did not happen on the stated day and had to be rearranged) and waited for… Read Full Review

The worst service and customer service I have ever come across, please stay away from dealing with this company, they offer a high price for your item then value it at less than a 3rd of the price then still charge you £20 to get your property back, they have had my phone for over 2 weeks and there is no way to contact them direct to find out what’s going on, they have taken advantage of this covid19 situation and are preying on people who need money, they have caused me so much stress and… Read Full Review

“Do not send your phone to this company”

Written on: 18/02/2020

This company quotes a high price for your old mobile phone and then offers a very low price when they receive it, quoting fictitious faults, including saying the phone is locked even when it's Sim Free. They will not reply to complaints and only send pre-scripted emails of a "take it or leave it" format. If you don't accept their lower offer, they want another £20 to send back a phone that might not even be yours judging by the way they assess the phones. Avoid at all cost… Read Full Review

Agree. Was offered £34 for an iPod that was in perfect working order with no defects. I accepted the low amount as I no longer used the device. When they received it they offered £6. If I wanted the item returned it would cost me £20??

“AVOID them like plague”

Written on: 27/01/2020 by mkHess384 (1 review written)

They quoted a total of £450 for my 2 phones, an iphone 8 plus 256GB and an iphone 8 64GB. Both were less than 2 years old and were in excellent condition. iphone 8 plus had one small scratch on the casing otherwise no cosmetic damages nor any software damages. But when the phones were sent, i was given a revised quote of £205 in total stating crackling earpiece, scratches on screen, charging port being loose, etc. and none of these existed until the day i sent my phones over to them.

“Avoid at all costs.”

Written on: 16/01/2020 by KadenMcLaughlin474 (1 review written)

Still have my phone since December. Avoid at all costs. Trade under various names & as seen on BBC Watchdog called Elite Computers in November. Tried & complained to Trust Pilot but they allow this company to continue to post fake reviews. Suggest if you have been scammed do the same as me. Complain to TrustPilot, Salford Trading Standards & BBC Watchdog as I have done. The usual story. You send your phone because they offer the best price. Then they claim faults that don't exist. I got… Read Full Review

“DO NOT SEND ANYTHING TO THESE COWBOYS”

Written on: 07/01/2020 by NiaDickey1972 (1 review written)

I had a similar awful experience to others. I sent them a perfect iPhone SE and had an email to tell me that the phone was damaged and made me a much lower counter offer or said they would send me phone back for a £20 fee. I asked for photo evidence of the condition of the phone when they received it and was told initially they'd get back to me and then when I chased them they said they don't visually record the condition of items. So I'm stuck. They are complete cowboys,do not go anywhere… Read Full Review

I arranged for my Samsung galaxy s8 to be sent and sold to handset recycle, at first the communication was brilliant and staff couldn't be anymore helpful until they received the device.

They confirmed the item was actually recieved and was going to be tested that day however this was the last I heard from the team, I emailed them on several occasions and even involved an online fraud team… Read Full Review

“Beware - Do not Use”

Written on: 27/05/2019 by MacGregorlj1959 (1 review written)

Beware -  Do not use them I always look after my phones, and other than general wear and tear, they are never cracked or scratched. I, via Handset Recycle website, entered details of 5 separate phones. I got a good price, UPS collected the phones and I awaited payment. I received an email saying all the phones had been received and checked, and payment would follow. I had to chase for payment several times and when it did eventually arrive, it was less than half the original offer. When l… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/01/2019 by AEB61 (1 review written)

Quoted £70 for my mint condition iPad 3rd Gen. The item was in “as new” condition with completely unblemished case and screen. After 4 days of “inspection” they counter offered £40 saying that there were scratches on the case hence reduced price. Alternative was to decline and pay £20 to have it sent back. In my case and I suspect in most cases they invent some issue with the item to reduce their offer price. I took photos of my iPad before sending it off and there are no scratches… Read Full Review
