Why Gizmogo?

Technology is advancing at a fast pace in this day and age. The electronic devices releasing today are compact, fast, and more reliable than the devices from a year ago. While most people, if not all, realize the impacts of electronics on the environment and sell or trade older devices for new ones, many throw away out-of-order devices and burden the environment. Disposing of defunct phones, tablets, and other gadgets damages the environment and is not an eco-friendly approach. Luckily, Gizmogo offers a perfect solution for customers who have a pile of non-functioning devices sitting at their homes. The company accepts the purchase of electronic devices from customers in broken or damaged conditions as well. The payout will not be generous, but it is better to have something than nothing. Meanwhile, at Gizmogo’s end, the company recycles and refurbishes out-of-order devices and sells back the electronic scrap materials in the used market. It is a win-win solution for the customer and Gizmogo.

Note: All electronics go through 30-point inspection process.
