CompareAndRecycle.com – A New Breed of Comparison Engine

The popularity of trading in one’s old mobile has been increasing exponentially over the past year as the public has become more aware of the residual values inherent in old phones and other electronic recyclables.

Many of the most well known phone recyclers are now advertising on national and regional television and the public’s general awareness is increasing in direct proportion. We have all heard of Mazuma, Envirofone, Fonebank and Love2Recycle, but there are many other reputable companies offering competitive deals on phone recycling.

For many years, old phones have been gathered up by major phone sales outlets for nothing in exchange deals and recycled under bulk buying contracts. This is all changing and many businesses are being established to compete on price with the big name buyers which is having a beneficial effect on the market for old phones.

This should come as great news to the consumer who is seeing a better deal as time goes by.

With the advent of increased price competition comes the ubiquitous price comparison sites that have set out to establish, simplistically, who pays the best price for an old phone. Many of these are simple blogs offering very little valuable information to the consumer whilst other comparison sites have remained static for many years pointing to a very limited group of self-interested parties.

Of course, advertised price is never the whole story when it comes to making a trade. Price is an important consideration when selling your old recyclables but there are a myriad of other considerations that should affect the decision of the discerning seller.

Compare and Recycle is a brand-new breed of Comparison Engine that is now positioned to revolutionise the mobile phone recycling market by using increasingly sophisticated strategies to assess the quality and value of the various offerings and by inviting consumers and merchants to share their experiences, which, in turn, will improve the over all market and drive out bad practice.

The impact that Compare and Recycle is having in this market it truly astonishing and it should be noted that already many complacent competitors are being forced to change their antiquated practices and consider the ever-changing face of technological evolution.

Bring it on we say!!!!

This is all really great news for all you consumers.
