To the right we list our Top Recommended Deal and below that we show all the mobile phone recyclers who will pay you to recycle your old Apple mobile phone.
Selling your iPhone 8 on our website could not be easier, as we have a broad selection of recycling companies to choose from. Each of these recyclers will offer a different price for your iPhone 8, so it is simply a matter of choosing which recycling company you want to go with. Most recyclers will send you a freepost pack to send your phone in, or you can print a freepost label and pack it yourself for a quicker turnaround. The recycling company will then assess your phone to determine its condition, which will indicate how much money you will get for your device. You have three options to get paid: a cheque, a bank transfer, or via PayPal.
It is usually best to put your iPhone 8 on the market immediately, as the value of smartphone devices (particularly iPhones) depreciates as time goes on. Despite this, there are some peaks during the year which could increase the amount of money that you could receive for your phone. These peaks include just before the launch of a new iPhone (usually in September), and a couple of months before the Christmas season.
The iPhone 8 came out in 2017 with a choice of two capacities: 64GB and 256GB. The highest amount that you can get for your iPhone 8 will depend on the capacity that you have, but also on the phone's condition. If you have kept it in good condition, then this will maximise how much money you will receive for it.
How you recycle your iPhone 8 is dependent on the recycler, as each recycler will have their own steps and policies for recycling. Often, the recycling process will involve a refurbishment of your phone. Devices that cannot be repaired at all will be sent to a recycling facility whereby the profitable components of the device will be removed and put on the market.
Your phone may be completely broken, and if it is, do not worry, because there are still options for you to get some money for your device. You can send it to a recycler that can repair, refurbish and resell your phone as a second-hand device. At the top of the page, simply choose 'broken' to categorise your phone's condition. Some problems that your device may have could be a broken screen, buttons not working, dents on the handset's exterior, and the device not charging properly. You may also have other issues besides these, including water damage. If your device has this, then you will have to check your recycler's Terms and Conditions or contact them directly to find out what their policies are.
