Bounce Your Old Mobile Handset for Cash

Bounce Your Old Mobile Handset for Cash


Bounce Mobile launches in New Zealand

Bounce Mobile has launched in New Zealand, offering consumers and businesses a new solution dealing with their old and unwanted mobile handsets.

This web-based initiative launched by Brightstar, which has seen success in both Australia and Singapore, offers consumers cash in return for their disused phones.

Mark Wright, Brightstar New Zealand Business Manager for Bounce Mobile, is excited about what Bounce Mobile will offer kiwi consumers, and the social benefits the business delivers through its recycling program.

“Each year millions of handsets are being replaced, with many of them simply discarded to lie in drawers gathering dust or being sent to landfill. Bounce Mobile offers customers the choice to turn their old mobiles into cash and give them a useful second life.

Brightstar has more than seven years experience recycling used devices putting them to better use. Through Bounce Mobile we take each handset and recycle it via a trusted, secure service. Generally these handsets will be sold into other markets and in many cases the refurbished phones will aid the growth of mobile communications in developing countries, at a fraction of the cost for the new consumer. Phones that no longer have a useful life or value are recycled in an environmentally friendly way within NZ,” said Wright.

The Bounce Mobile service turns old phones into cash in 5 simple steps. Users search www.bouncemobile.co.nz to find their model and how much it’s worth. They then choose the correct model and enter their address details to receive a free courier bag in the post. Once they have created a secure user profile and uploaded proof of identification, the handset is collected and delivered to the Bounce Mobile team. The phone is then appraised and the valuation confirmed, with the corresponding payment processed within five working days.

For consumers the benefits of using Bounce Mobile lie in the company’s ability to correctly value used mobile phones and access the most profitable routes to market, allowing them to pay top prices for used and unwanted devices.

While some users may be weary of handing over personal information and their mobile device before receiving payment, www.bouncemobile.co.nz offers each user a secure profile, which they manage personally, and payment for handsets that fulfill the criteria are guaranteed.

Bounce Mobile is not only for individual consumers, businesses with a large fleet phones can also enjoy the benefits of selling their phones directly through the Bounce Mobile Service. For business sales or mobiles that don’t feature on the website please get in touch with the Bounce Mobile Team on 0508 BUYBACK (0508 289 222) or customercare@bouncemobile.co.nz
