John Conway, senior commercial manager at GetTech, the driving force behind the buyback program talks to Jess Kelly about the changes in the refurbished electronics market, extending the life cycle of tech products and about trading in your tech.
Why buy refurbished?
Over the last few years there has been a big focus on extending the life cycle of products. According to John, the industry has changed a lot over the last 10 years. A lot of it is coming from the e-side where people are looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly but also the increased cost of tech.
“There is an increased cost in buying a new device and buying refurbished and used is a better alternative for customers looking to keep the costs down. A lot of our customers are parents buying smartphones for their kids. This is the reason why the industry is booming.”
