“Demand for phone recycling services is growing tremendously in the UK, and we established SellMyMobile.com to help UK consumers get the most for their money when looking to recycle their old devices."
(PRWeb UK) December 17, 2009
Today sees the launch of SellMyMobile.com (http://www.sellmymobile.com), a new mobile phone recycling price comparison website covering more UK phone recyclers than any other service in the UK. With more than 80 million old mobile phones said to be lying around with an estimated value of £1.6 billion, SellMyMobile.com is aiming to help UK consumers get the most for their old devices by pointing them towards the best available deals.
There is notable parity between the UK’s phone recycling sites, with the prices offered for individual handsets fluctuating widely between services. For example, iPhone 3G users looking to recycle their old 16GB handsets could receive as much as £202 in cash for their phone from some sites, whilst the worst amount on offer comes in at a significantly lower figure of £122, a sizeable £80 difference for the same handset.
The number of mobile phone recycling services on offer have increased greatly in the UK over the past two years, with research from SellMyMobile.com’s analytics showing that consumers searches for 'sell mobile / recycle mobile' related terms are up 200% since 2008. With an estimated 15 million old mobiles upgraded every year in the UK alone, the industry looks set to flourish as more choices for recycling devices become available to consumers.
An independent and impartial mobile phone recycling price comparison site, SellMyMobile.com works by comparing all of the UK’s leading mobile phone buyers when a user types the handset they want to recycle into its search engine. By checking all UK buyers every day, the site is able to provide the most accurate and up-to-date results and prices for recycling UK mobile phones. At the time of launch, SellMyMobile.com was comparing over 18,500 prices on more than 4,000 phones.
Keir McConomy, MD of SellMyMobile.com, commented: “Demand for phone recycling services is growing tremendously in the UK, and we established SellMyMobile.com to help UK consumers get the most for their money when looking to recycle their old devices. SellMyMobile.com is the only phone recycling price comparison site in the UK with the live data showing the most popular phones sold, as well as the most valuable phones across mobile buyers. With Christmas round the corner and many people likely to be unwrapping a new mobile, it also presents a great opportunity for people to earn some extra money during an expensive holiday season.”
