POSTING YOUR PHONE(S)
We provide a Freepost service which is a standard and uninsured service. (We don't send out envelopes or Jiffy bags as this slows down how quickly we can pay you for your mobile phones.)

Insurance is provided where a proof of posting receipt is obtained, however, we are not liable for this insurance and it is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the details of insurance levels provided by the Post Office.

Send your mobile phones using one of the methods below:
Special Delivery is available at your nearest Post Office, will cost a few pounds but insures your mobile phones up to a value of £500 against loss or damage. This is the method www.fastmobiletrade.com recommends to ensure your mobile phones arrive safely.
It is your decision and responsibility to provide additional protection/insurance on postage. In the case of high value phones, we would recommend using either a Recorded or Special Delivery service; however, which service you choose is at your total discretion. Your local Post Office can give you further information on these services and will confirm associated insurance limits.
We shall not be responsible or liable for phones lost during the postal process. We become responsible for your phone once received at our premises and therefore we recommend that you take advice from your local Post Office with regards to proof of posting and insurance.
