OCALA, Fla. (PRWEB) November 18, 2005
CellForCash.com, a web site that pays cash for old, unwanted cell phones, announced today it will pay $1 for every phone that sellers send in with the valuable phones that it agrees to buy.
The offer applies to old cell phones that CellForCash.com would normally not buy, according to James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS Communications Group Inc., CellForCash.com’s parent company.
CellForCash.com pays cash for more than 500 models of used cell phones, and those models – along with the prices they bring – are listed on the CellForCash.com website.
Under the new policy, the company will accept and pay $1 for each unwanted phone that sellers include in the shipping box with the phone that CellForCash.com agreed to purchase.
“We know that there are thousands and thousands of old cell phones sitting in desk drawers across America, and we know that those old phones represent a significant environmental threat if they end up discarded in landfills,” Mosieur said.
“We buy more than 500 models of old phones, but there are quite a few models, especially older ones, that we don’t buy,” he said. “We wanted to offer people a way to get rid of those old, valueless phones in an environmentally responsible manner, so we decided to accept the bad as well as the good. Paying $1 each for them should encourage people to send them in.”
The old phones that are accepted but which have no re-market value will be recycled and discarded in an environmentally responsible fashion by CellForCash.com technicians, Mosieur said.
When people agree to sell a used cell phone for cash, CellForCash.com sends them a pre-addressed, postage-paid shipping box. CellForCash.com will accept and pay $1 each for every old phone that sellers can squeeze into the shipping box, Mosieur said.
CellForCash.com has been buying used cell phones since 2002. It was the first such web site to offer cash for used cell phones, and it remains the industry leader today by a comfortable margin. The web site pays anywhere from a few dollars to well over $100 for the used phones.
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.
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.
