I wanted to sell my mobile phone for best price but found out its not as easy as I thought It would be especially in the case where mobile phone has a cracked screen or is faulty. You can always sell your mobile phone when it’s not broken to almost everyone on the right price but the scenario gets changed when the mobile phone is broken. Selling broken mobile phone depends on several factors as mentioned below.
- Condition of the mobile phone, and whether it can be economically fixed and resold as a refurbished mobile phone.
- Age of the mobile phone, if it’s an old mobile phone, selling it could be tough when its broken. As refurbishes find it difficult to refurbish.
- Who and were you sell it matters? Countries where labour is cheap, they go for decent price but in western countries such as the UK, selling a broken mobile phone could be expensive.
Below are the three best possible ways by which you can sell your mobile phone for best possible price even when its broken.
Sell on Ebay
There are always buyers looking for amazing deals, but when it comes to mobile phones, it’s difficult to get a good deal as they are in so much demand. You have to chose between selling your broken mobile phone through eBay or selling it to a mobile phone recycling company. Depending on the model and make of the mobile phone you would know how much you can fetch you’re your mobile phone. Few years ago, it was much easier to sell Samsung mobile phones but now it different. Samsung mobile phones are very expensive to get fixed especially if there is a crack on the screen. That’s why selling it to a recycling company can be difficult and you might not be offered much for it but you can always find people who can pay good amount of money on eBay for the same mobile phone. For instance, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S8 in 2019 with a cracked screen, you will most probably get better price on eBay rather than from a mobile phone recycling company.
Sell it to a recycling company
Apple iPhones are really cheap to get fixed as the parts are much cheaper. The technicians also don’t need to have any special equipment to fix iPhones. Apple iPhones have been in the market since 2007 and there are several million mobile phones current in the market. In fact, there are still several million iPhone 5s in the market which people use in 2019.
- In total there are about 171.5 million iPhone 6/6s/6s pluses sold.
- Apple refurbished products and include a one-year warranty.
Selling an iPhone to a recycling company is the best bet as these companies have special refurbishment departments where they recycle old mobile phones. In most cases these mobile phones are refurbished and are given a new life. Once refurbished, they are on aired again to a new user. Selling a broken iPhone is easy to sell on eBay but you will defiantly won’t get the desired amount of money. Another great idea would be to sell it after getting it fixed. A huge number of mobile phones are faulty they have a broken screen so if screen is broken, try getting it fixed and sell it to recycling company and save insertion and commission fees paid to eBay.
Finding out where you can make the most for your mobile phone is important as there can be a huge difference in the price you are being offered and the price you can actually get for your old mobile phone.
