Who We Are
Sellyourcell.com was established in January, 2004 in response to an increasing global demand to address the environmental impact of electronic waste. Our primary focus became portable electronics, such as PDA's, iPods, and of course, the most prolific offender, discarded cellular phones. The virtual pile of abandoned phones was growing by 140 million units per year, a number that continues to rise. We answered the call to action and set out to provide consumers an avenue to be financially rewarded for proper cell phone disposal.
Some of our company's distinguishing features:
- In order to maximize our impact, we purchase a wide variety of cell-phones. Our buy list includes greater than 500 models. Chances are, you have the one we want!
- All data is removed from the phones when we receive them. We use highly specialized equipment and processes to completely erase any personal and/or sensitive information from smart phones, and to prevent the use of forensic software.
- We pride ourselves on being environmentally supportive by increasing the lifecycle of cell phones, thereby reducing the demand for new ones and keeping older ones out of landfills.
- Our customers receive a financial reward for doing the right thing for the environment. We give green for being green.
Here's how it works:
We have established a quick and easy 3 step process on our website. All you have to do is look on our site to find out if your handset is one that we are currently accepting and follow some simple instructions. If your handset is one of the ones we're purchasing, and it is in good working order, we will typically have a check in your hands within 30 days from the time we receive your phone.
