Phone Trade-in

Should I trade in my phone?

Electronic devices don’t last forever, and for many, this means buying the latest, more practical model. But what should you do with your old device? You could leave it at home for safekeeping, or you could pass it on to a family member. At Sim-3 we think there’s a better option. A device trade-in is one of the most beneficial and effective ways of getting rid of your unnecessary devices. You’d be surprised by the number of used phones that are left in draws and cupboards. Even the most damaged or broken device has some value in a trade-in. Selling your smart devices can bring you quick cash with minimal effort.

What Sim-3 has to offer

Sim-3 takes pride in offering the best services against a competitive price in the market. Our trade-in policy is no exception to it. As part of our buying and selling service, we can buy a range of smart devices, big or small, broken or new, while offering you a fair price. We deal in the following devices:

  • Android Phones
  • iPhones
  • iPads
  • Tablets
  • Smaller devices like Apple Watches, Samsung smartwatch and iPods
  • Macbooks
  • Laptops
  • Game consoles
  • Phone and computer accessories

Trading in is simple

You may want to sell your electronics online, as it appears simple and quick, but paying for post and packaging can be expensive and mailing them out can take weeks. So why not visit a local trade-in shop? At Sim-3, our friendly and experienced staff will be more than happy to take a look at your unwanted device in a short consultation session. We will quote you a price that beats those found online. If you don’t like our offer, you can end the consultation then and there. On top of our price guarantee, if you do choose to trade in your device, you can part-exchange your old device for a fully refurbished or new device. Under our in-house refurbishing, every pre-owned phone is scrutinized in detail and given a new lease of life with genuine component replacement. Sim-3 beats all others on price and level of service,so visit our shop today to find out how much your used device is worth.
