So, you’re in the market for a new phone because your current one is looking a little tired but you don’t want to have to sell your car to afford the upgrade. Maybe you’ve got a drawer full of old gadgets that you’re not sure what to do with and throwing them in the bin seems downright wasteful, not to mention environmentally uncaring.

Thankfully, there’s a way to get that upgrade or clear out that drawer with minimal effort, letting you turn your existing tech into cash towards a new games console, tablet, laptop or even a top-tier phone.

How does it work? 

musicMagpie will take your old Macbooks, iPads, iPhones, as well as media like DVDs, books, even Lego, and hand you real cash on the same day they receive your items.


Run everything you want to sell through musicMagpie’s valuation engine, throw in some additional details about your items (like their condition) and in return you’ll receive an instant quote.

To make the process even easier and quicker, you can also use the musicMagie mobile app (downloadable on Android and iOS) to simply scan in your items.

Once you’re happy with what you’re selling, package them up in any box you have to hand (they’re not fussy) and attach the provided free shipping documentation. All that’s then left to do is to send your pre-loved goods off and simply wait to get paid.


If it’s phones you’re after, musicMagpie sells everything up to the latest and greatest Google Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 Pro; with every pre-owned handset priced competitively, having undergone an extensive 90-point diagnostic check for quality assurance, supplied with a 12-month warranty for peace of mind and delivered free-of-charge.
