Gadget XChange was conceived by people like you, people who want to keep up with the latest advances in technology but are more and more conscious of what to do with our old gadgets and their impact on the environment.
Yes, there are plenty of places to recycle your old mobile phone for cash, but what about if you get a new iPod or a digital camera with more megapixels or that sleek looking new slim PS3, what are you going to do with the old ones that have served you so well and still have years of life left in them? In some cases technology is moving and improving so fast that your old gadget might still be less than a year old. We do take mobile phones as well, so why use lots of different companies when you can get the best price right here?
What are your options then… You could sell them on an auction site or in the local classifieds, but would you get what they are worth? You have to wait for the auction to end, what if no one wanted it, you’ve just lost your posting fee and still no better off and how do you accept payment, with a payment gateway that takes a percentage of your selling price or a cheque that might bounce? Plus you have to take photos and upload them, type a description of it and not forgetting receiving e-mails from individuals trying to dupe you at every opportunity.
This is where we come in, you get a definite valuation straight away, we arrange the postage costs for free. All you have to do is get it into the post and that’s it, you’ve done your bit for the environment and earned some cash doing it, ready to spend on your next new gadget.
Why do we know this, because this is what we were doing ourselves when we decided to create Gadget XChange for the gadget loving geek in all of us.
This is just half of what Gadget XChange is all about though, soon we will be selling gadgets and allowing you to part exchange your old gadgets for new ones or better spec’d used gadgets.
It makes sense, for example, you wouldn’t scrap a perfectly good condition working car just because you wanted a new one or let it sit on your driveway going rusty, you part exchange it. It saves having to sell your car privately and all the hassle and expense that’s associated with that, so why can’t we do that for gadgets? Don’t worry… we are.
We will soon be offering a place to buy new and used gadgets on our website and also in a high street near you when our retail stores start to roll out in early 2010. Then you’ll be able to part exchange your gadgets for new or better spec’d used ones both on the web and face to face on the high street.
Keep an eye on Gadget XChange, the future of gadgets is here!
