The Problems We Are Solving
There are simply too many touch points as the average pre-owned phone goes through 7 different middlemen before reaching the final buyer. Between depreciation, extra wear and tear, shipping costs, and of course profit, the final buyer pays up to 50% more than what the original seller was paid.
There’s a lack of consistency in industry grading standards that leaves consumers guessing at the quality they’ll receive when they purchase a pre-owned mobile device.
A typical mobile phone has a useful life of seven years, but consumers hold onto to them for only an average 2-3 years. By creating a healthy and transparent secondary market, we’ll extend the useful life of mobile phones which will have a positive effect on the environment.
