How sellmygadget works

Sell My Gadget uses a price comparison engine, to obtain offers to buy your old or unwanted devices from a range of UK recycling websites. All of which are trustworthy and some of the most popular device recyclers in the UK, including Music Magpie and We Buy Any

This comparison means you can instantly compare prices and choose the best offer for your phone, laptop tablet, smartwatch, gaming console, or other unwanted devices. 

Getting your offer

Simply enter the name and model of your device into the search box at the top of our website, and click search

Within a few seconds, our comparison engine will display all the current available prices from the buyers and recyclers in our database. Then, you can explore the offers, and additional information supplied by the buyer, including reviews, payment time, and what they require (e.g. what you need to send to them). 

Then all that's left to do is choose the best offer for you! 

The price you will be offered for your device depends on a number of factors, including:

  • Model
  • Functionality 
  • Overall condition

Accepting your offer

Once you have chosen your preferred offer, simply click 'Select'. You will be either taken directly to the recycling company's website, in a new tab. Or a form, which requires completion, will open on your screen. Fill in your details, and click 'Send', and the information you have provided will be sent directly to the recycling company or buyer. 

You will then receive: 

  • A confirmation email, with details of the sale 
  • Royal Mail Freepost label via email (this is one of the most common methods)
  • A postage pack, sent to your address so you can pack up your old device and send it to the buyer/recycling company
There is detailed information about how to pack up and send your device here.
