TradeUps' mission is to provide you with the best value for your old electronics and to ensure they get a new life or, if necessary, an environmentally-friendly retirement.
Every year, Americans replace more than 100 million cell phones, 85 million digital cameras and 40 million home computers. What happens to the old gear? More often than not, it ends up in a drawer or a closet, and therein lies the problem. Unlike red wine, unused electronics items don't get more valuable with age. The time to lock in the value of your old electronics is at the moment you replace them.
TradeUps processes more than 5,000 units per week, and we've got room for your old units. We test, clean, recover and/or recycle everything we receive. We follow a zero-landfill policy. Everything we receive -- from your old phone, to the battery to the packaging in the box -- gets reused or recycled. And, best of all, if we think we can resell it, we pay you for it.
TradeUps is a joint venture of Liquidity Services, Inc. (LSI) and Market Velocity.
