OCALA, FL (PRWEB) November 4, 2005
CellForCash.com, a Web site that pays cash for old, unwanted cell phones, has purchased more than 200,000 used cell phones since it was founded just three years ago, the site’s parent company announced today.
When CellForCash.com was founded in 2002, it was the first such web site to offer cash for used cell phones. Others have followed, but CellForCash.com remains the industry leader by a comfortable margin, according to James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS Communications Group Inc., CellForCash.com’s parent company.
“We conceived of the CellForCash.com idea because we realized how many old but serviceable cell phones were ending up in dresser drawers or inside someone’s desk,” Mosieur said. “We felt there was a great business opportunity in those old phones, and we were right.”
CellForCash.com pays cash for the old cell phones, pays for their shipping, and then recycles and re-markets them throughout the world. The company recycles more than 75,000 used cell phones every month.
The web site pays anywhere from a few dollars to well over $100 for the used phones. Customers can go to a section of the CellForCash.com website to see how much cash is being offered for their particular phone.
Since its founding, CellForCash.com has purchased more than 200,000 old cell phones.
“There are a number of benefits to the CellForCash.com system,” Mosieur said. “For one thing, it provides valuable cash to people who can put that money toward a newer phone with more features, or really use the money for any purpose. And just as important, it keeps thousands and thousands of old cell phones out of landfills, where they can be a significant source of pollution.”
While CellForCash.com was the first web site to be developed by RMS, a number of others have followed. One, http://www.WirelessFundraiser.com, provides cash to non-profit organizations that collect and send in old cell phones. Another, http://www.RecycleForUS.com, is an environmental initiative that helps companies, government agencies and other groups and individuals collect and recycle old cell phones. The newest RMS website, http://www.911CellPhoneBank.com, donates about 1,000 cell phones every month to law enforcement and other agencies for use as 911 emergency phones.
Other companies have tried to copy CellForCash.com’s success, but it remains the industry leader by a comfortable margin.
“We’re proud to say that CellForCash.com buys more used cell phones than any other site, and we remain the technology leader when it comes to the recycling and re-use of old cell phones,” Mosieur said. “We continue to finds new ways to re-use old cell phones, to put 911 phones into the hands of those who need them, and to help individuals and organizations raise money through the recycling of old phones – all while being very protective of the environment.”
CellForCash.com pays cash for used cell phones, and makes the process simple by displaying the phones it will buy and the prices it will pay for them right on the web site. It also provides sellers with already-addressed, postage-paid mailing boxes. Its QuickShip option makes the process even faster. For more information visit the web site at http://www.CellForCash.com.
