This is a collaborated post with Mazuma Mobile As we step into 2024, it's the perfect time to declutter our lives and make room for new possibilities. One often overlooked aspect of decluttering is parting ways with our old tech devices, which are estimated to number around 150 million in the UK alone. Believe it or not, these forgotten gadgets could be worth a staggering £13 billion collectively! 


Clearing your old tech from the back of your drawers is a great way to make some room, remove some clutter and earn some extra money. There is a lot of tech out there, and it's important to note that tech doesn't just mean mobile phones, which most of us have; it also covers lots of other products such as mp3 players, smart speakers, video game consoles, video games, hard drives, tablets, an old laptop, smart watches, such as Apple watches, macs and more! 


This year, make a resolution to clear out those old devices and discover the hidden funds that could be used for exciting new ventures, but it pays not to hang around too long as the longer you leave it to clear your old gadgets, the less it could be worth! The more people that trade in their tech, the more the market can quickly become saturated with similar gadgets, and if that is the case, then demand drops, your trade-in value can drop, and you might not get as much money. A good time to clear an old phone, for example, is just before a new models come out as demand and prices can be higher, but once the new model hits the shops and people upgrade, more people sell off their old phones and the market floods and prices fall, so its good to be organised and beat the rush and you'll then get the best price! 


How to get rid of your old tech


There are several ways you can sell your unwanted items. A popular choice is using an online marketplace such as Facebook Marketplace or eBay to offer your unwanted electronics to potential buyers. If you're getting a newer model phone, for example, the company you're getting the phone from might offer trade-in programs where you can receive money off your new phone or store credit, depending on the condition of the device. 


If the thought of having to mess around with selling off your old equipment and dealing with buyers and the hassle that can be is too much, then look to trade in your item for money with a specialist trade-in company such as Mazuma Mobile. This is what I've done, and it's much easier and far less hassle!  It's the easy way, and I think the best way, to get rid of your clutter without any hassle! 


This company will give you an instant quote online for your unwanted tech. If you're happy with the offer price, you can send the tech to them, or they'll pick it up from you if easier, and then once they've received it, they'll check the item to make sure it's in the condition you've stated during the offer stage, and if all is good, they'll send you the money the same day. 


Even if your tech isn't in good condition, it is worth getting a quote from them as even old electronics that don't work or are in poor condition can be sent to them, and they'll then recycle them properly for you, which is much better for the environment than simply throwing them in the bin as electronics can contain toxic materials which we don't want to have sitting in the ground or being sent into the atmosphere if the rubbish is burned. If the tech is in good condition, they'll refurbish it and then sell it on/re-home it so it has a second lease of life and is far more sustainable, which is far better than simply throwing it away, plus you make some money out of it as well; so it's a win-win situation!
