20:20 launches consumer website for handset recycling
20:20 launched a handset recycling website, called Phonerecyclebank, this week.
Consumers are being invited to send their mobile phones to the distributor in exchange for payments, which the company claims will be higher because of industry partnerships and channels that will be used to maximise resale values.
20:20 UK managing director, James Browning: ‘The cash for old mobiles market has been going for a number of years and consumers now know that they can receive a payment for old handsets. The problem is that many of the companies are not experts in the mobile market and consumers are therefore disappointed with the values they are actually offered.
‘By entering the market we are putting the knowledge and expertise of 20:20 behind phonerecyclebank.com. Our unique relationships with manufacturers and our worldwide channels to market mean that consumers will get the best deal with more cash in their pockets.’
