Cashify has developed a robust model around used mobile phones to ensure that we do not skip on our responsibilities towards the environment. The chain starts right from where you feel your current phone needs to be replaced.
What we do is that we offer a doorstep collection of your old device. You can conveniently place a selling request via our website or app and we will get back in touch with you shortly. Depending on how old your phone is and its condition we will offer you a specific price for it. The price you see on the website or app is the one you get there are no additional costs.
Once the condition of your device has been ascertained the collection executive will make an appointment according to your convenience, give you straight up cash and take your old device.

Now this device is sent to Cashify’s warehouse, where the phone is completely wiped of its data, and then thoroughly inspected to see which parts are working and which aren’t. Accordingly the phone’s parts are replaced if something is found to be not working.
Then the phone is once again inspected before it is repackaged to be sold as refurbished. This gives your old phone a completely new life and allows it to be used by someone instead of being thrown away in the trash or kept in your drawer for eternity.
If your device is extremely old or if it is beyond repair then the phone is sent to a recycling centre where it is responsibly disassembled and disposed of in an environmentally conscious manner.

This entire process is carried out by trained professionals who are wearing the correct safety equipment to ensure that all parts are handled carefully. This part is especially important because in India currently phones are not recycled in a responsible manner.
Since most people are not even aware of what to do with their old phones Cashify has taken this initiative to ensure that they can get rid of their old phones without even having to go anywhere.
This can definitely help solve India’s massive e-waste problem and going forward hopefully will make us a bit more cautious in how we handle our used devices.
The time has come for us to acknowledge our impact on the planet and take steps to actively improve it. If we just keep buying new phones without properly disposing of the old ones then we will definitely end up ruining our beautiful environment for future generations.
So if you feel you’d like to help Cashify in our cause of protecting the environment, click here to recycle your old device.
