In Conjunction with Gumtree
There was a time, not too long ago, when having a mobile phone was a luxury. If you were fortunate enough to have one in the early 1990s, you were most likely gawked at in either wonder or jealousy as you made and answered calls using your Motorola Brick Today things have changed – EVERYONE in the western world has a mobile phone. In fact it’s not surprising to see people have two! One for work and one for personal use.
A lot of us change and upgrade our phones every year. Most times it involves giving your old device to your sibling or parent Maybe some people do this because they don’t know the true value of their phone and how to sell it easily.
Well these days, thanks to Gumtree in Australia, it’s super easy to know the value of your phone and sell it quickly!
Gumtree have created this neat little Mobile Price Checker App that gives the best selling price on your device based on the data of thousands that have been sold on its site. Once you’ve entered your mobile phone manufacturer and model, the app will provide the average best selling price for your phone. You then have an option to slide the Price Slider up or down to see how changing the price will affect your sale chances. Very simple to use and quite intuitive.
I tried this for my iPhone 6 and was surprised that I could get $945 for it in Australia!
With the Samsung Galaxy S6 out this year, some maybe still considering upgrading their S5 – now’s a good time to check if it’s worthwhile.
The team at Gumtree are still working on more enhancements – one that I would like to see is how the price is impacted by the color of your device e.g. gold iPhone 6 vs silver iPhone 6. Also it would help to get the price for your specific mobile phone model e.g. iPhone 6 Plus 64GB. This kind of data could change my buying decisions in the future…
So there you have it! If you’re looking to sell your mobile phone in Australia, please check out the Gumtree Mobile Price Checker App to see what you can get for it!
