There’s a common misconception that electronic devices are more or less worthless unless brand new. This is, unfortunately, an attitude which is fueled by low purchase prices for second hand goods on auction sites such as eBay and, unfair and dishonest buy back schemes from retailers. On the contrary, used devices - even those which are not in perfect working order - can still have value when sold or traded as part exchange.
It’s widely said that, these days, we’ve become a ‘throwaway society’ and, to some extent, this is very much the case - most of us will tend to buy new clothing and household goods rather than mending the ones we’ve got (in 2018, the darning of socks seems to have well and truly become a lost art!). When it comes to electronics, however, you may be surprised by the value of the old phones and devices currently gathering dust in your cupboards along with those expired coupons and mismatched buttons. Quite often, these unwanted devices can be sold on at a fair price through sites such as Bobrez who will collect your old device and exchange it for cash Often, devices become unwanted due to the owner simply wishing to get their hands on a new or updated version, in which case, part exchange is the perfect option.
Powering up your part exchange
Most people associate the term ‘part exchange’ with the motor trade but, it also has very real benefits for the electronics industry. Although you may be the kind of person who absolutely has to have the latest devices, there are those out there who are more than happy with last year’s model - or even the year before’s! This is where part exchange comes in! In a few simple steps, you can offload your unwanted device and receive cash toward a shiny new one.
Appreciation not depreciation
We all know that, like cars, electronics lose value over time. With some electronic devices, the depreciation curve is fast and steep which means that it’s best to trade up regularly in order to avoid losing money on your purchases. Part exchange can help with this by offsetting the cost of a new device with the cashback from your old one.
