There are two parts to the car buying process that most people detest – getting the best deal possible on your old car and finding a new car for the best price. Hours spent haggling with salespeople over your new car’s price will only turn into hours haggling over your trade-in value. Before you know it, you have wasted a whole day and are left driving away thinking, “Did I just make a huge mistake?”
The same can be said about trading in your cell phone for cash. You might spend hours calling around, trying to get the best price possible for your phone. Then you might spend hours searching for the best deal on your new one only to have to drive across town to take advantage of a promotional offer.
At Howard Street Electronics by Forever Wireless, we are licensed to buy second-hand phones. We are committed to making the experience as fast and painless as possible leaving you feeling great about selling your phone to us. That is why we are revealing our secrets to getting the most from your used smartphone.
Decide How Much Time You Want to Spend
Going back to the car analogy, if you want top dollar for your used car, you will want to put some time into cleaning it, having it detailed and making minor repairs. Same thing goes with your phone. If you want top dollar, you will need to invest some time and money into making it look and operate like new. If you don’t want to spend time, energy and money fixing your existing phone, you can trust that we will give you a better price than the most popular online phone trade-in websites.
Things to Remember
Unlike the smartphones of yesteryear, technology is staying in use longer than ever before. Sure, your iPhone 6 won’t have the camera that an iPhone 8 will, but many of the software features you have come to expect from Apple can still be used on an older phone. In fact, Apple is still manufacturing older generation phones because the demand for them continues to be high. Imagine accessing all of the latest Apple software at a fraction of the price of an iPhone X. An older iPhone can do that. Tempted to make the switch from Android to Apple but not sure if you’ll love it? An older generation phone may be the perfect starter device.
You should also remember that we fix all iPhones, no matter the model!
With demand higher than ever for older generation phones, you may be inundated with offers to buy your used phone. Let Howard Street Electronics by Forever Wireless help you navigate the process with our fast and easy buy-back system. Not only will you get a high price for your used smartphone, but you will also find an outstanding selection of new phones to choose from at prices you can feel good about. And unlike the car buying process, you won’t leave our store feeling like you have been taken for a ride.
