Top 3 Reasons to Sell Your Used Phone on Gumtree

People are constantly upgrading their phones to get the latest and greatest they can afford to get. But what happens to all the old phones? Chances are you’re one of the many that has a ‘junk drawer’ filled with old phones you don’t know what to do with. Who would want this old phone anyway? Surprisingly, even older phones have become quick sellers on Gumtree.

Instead of cluttering up your ‘junk drawer’ and forgetting about your old phones, turn your trash into someone else’s treasure by placing an ad on Gumtree. Here are the top 3 reasons why you won’t regret it:

  1. Money, money, money! Why let items sit around in your home when you can make back some of the money you spent on it? You likely spent quite a bit of money purchasing your old phone, so why not try to reclaim some of it?
  2. Selling and ‘recycling’ your used phones is great for the environment! The less we can clutter up our landfills with, the better. Cellphones are full of toxic elements that are harmful for the earth, so throwing them in the garbage is never a good idea. Now is the time to do your part to save the planet!
  3. We all know we are never going to use our old phones again. Out with the old, in with the new, right? So why create the unnecessary clutter around your home? Perhaps a good spring clean is in order? Let’s free up some storage space for things like seasonal items we know we will use again in the near future.
