The Whiz Cells is an electronics recycler. Our mission is to keep electronics in use as long as possible to keep e-waste to a minimum in our landfills, while putting money in your pocket. How do we accomplish this? We purchase used electronics and resell them to people that may be upgrading from much older technology at a reduced cost. We also purchase broken devices and send them to refurbishing centers to be used for parts and then sold as quality working units again. Not only does the environment benefit from what we do, but you do as well. We pay you top dollar on your used or unwanted electronics so that you can purchase the newest, latest, and greatest with the least amount of impact on your wallet! Here is an example: Say you have an iPhone 4 and you are ready to upgrade to the iPhone 4s. Let’s say we are offering $150 for your iPhone 4 and the cost of your upgrade to the iPhone 4s is the standard $199. The impact on your wallet is only $49 to upgrade to the newest iPhone!
Shipping and Payment Questions
Yes, we do offer shipping materials. If your phone is being purchased for over $100, we do give you the option of sending.
We can provide the box for you but to receive your money as soon as possible, you should use your own box to ship your phone or tablet. A small box or padded envelope with bubble wrap from the local post office or a retail store like Walmart or Target is very inexpensive, usually less than a dollar.
When sending your phone or tablet in your own box, you will be paid within one business day from the time we receive your package.
If using our packaging, it will take up to 72 hours from the time we receive your package to process payment. If you choose a check as payment method, it can take 7-10 days from the time we receive your package to get the check.
