Redsquid Communications and GRS forge partnership to launch mobile phone trade-in recycling service


Customers of the Vodafone dealer can now trade in phones for up to £300

Redsquid Communications’ customers can now access a new mobile phone trade – a recycling service through Gadget Repair Solutions.

Customers of the Vodafone dealer can now trade-in old mobile phones for up to £300 (iPhone 7) with the new service and receive instant pricing safe in the knowledge that their old devices will be securely wiped of sensitive personal and company data.

Redsquid Communications has a customer base of 550 including sandwich shop chain EAT and Caribbean holiday resort firm Sandals who will all be able to benefit from the partnership.

The service is in compliance with the European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) European Union directive aimed at reducing waste sent to landfills.

Part of plans

GRS managing director Stuart Barclay told Mobile News: “We have several partnerships in the pipeline which will be announced soon,” as part of plans to double revenue to £16 million by the end of 2018.

He added: “The launch of this service provides an easy solution for businesses who are upgrading or getting new mobile phones.

“We are delighted to be offering clients an efficient way to get cash back, increase data security and recycle their old phones. “Working with Redsquid, we believe we will see substantial commercial and environmental benefits for both business and the wider community.”

Redsquid Communication advisor to the board Andy Tow said: “We believe that we have a responsibility to help improve people’s lives in our local area.

“As an organisation with access to the necessary resources and drive to support charitable projects, Redsquid has vowed to play our part.”
