“ Website dedicated to recycling old mobile phones „
In these time of recession it is always good to find ways of earning extra cash. One way to do so is to recycle your old mobile phone and get cash for doing so. I first heard about this service via a radio adverts for one such company /www.mazumamobile.com/. On further investigation I found there were a number of similar companies so uI sed Moneysavingexpert to get the best quote for my old Nokia N78. RPCrecycle.com the subject of this review came out tops They quoted me £58 which was £12 more than Mazumamobile and £14 more than the smallest quote from the Post Office.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The RPCrecycle site in greens, and blues is uncluttered and easy to use. There are function on how the site works and FAQS just to back up this information. On the home page near the top there is a drop down menu where you can enter the make and model of the phone you wish to sell. Enter in your phone details and you will get your quote. If you are happy with the quote you can register with the website and continue with the order. You need to provide your name address and email address. There are two options for payment either by cheque or paypal . I chose cheque so did not need to give any bank or paypal details. The other choice you have to make is whether you want to send your phone by freepost or recorded delivery with the recorded delivery costing £2.I am a cheapskate so decided to risk using freepost.
DID IT WORK?
The answer is a resounding yes yes. A couple of days after registering I received in the post my jiffy bag and a freepost label. After charging my phone, wiping the memory and removing the SIM card I packed my phone up and took it to the Post Office on Friday 17th September. I made sure I had a receipt of postage just in case anything happened to it so I had proof of postage. When you log into the website you can track your order. However I never needed to use this, as the service was prompt quick and they kept me well informed on my phone's progress at all stages of the process. They sent me an email on the Monday to confirm they had received my phone and were testing it to see if it was up to their standards. The next day I received an email saying that they had accepted my phone and a cheque for the full amount of £58 was winging its way to me. This was no lie as on Thursday 23rd September less than a week after I sent my phone to them I received said cheque for £58.
I can not fault the speed and efficiency of RPCrecycle.com. and thus can heartily recommend it to anyone who has an old mobile handset just lying around gathering dust.
