Exertis Trade in for Business are a company that aim to save on the amount of electronic waste we keep indoors or end up throwing into landfill. By recycling your old unwanted devices we can save polluting our planet and instead give older devices a new lease of life with a new owner, or if a device is beyond repair or use then it can be recycled responsibly in a way that won’t damage our environment. The parts can then be reused for other purposes.

Devices are categorised as in working order if you can switch them on and off, are fully functional, where the screen doesn’t have screen burn, cracks, chips or severe scratches, and they haven’t been damaged by water. Normal wear & tear is acceptable. Please note that all devices are thoroughly inspected upon receipt and you will be notified if damage is found on any of the devices.


We understand there may be sensitive or personal data on your device that you have been unable to remove. We run a full, secure data wipe service to remove all data from devices in accordance with the Data Protection Act*, so you can sell to us with peace of mind that all your personal data will be securely removed

If we receive a device with a SIM or Memory card enclosed it will be destroyed.

* Devices which are beyond economical repair or cannot be physically data wiped will be recycled

At Exertis Trade In for Business we understand the importance of protecting all customer data. This is why we have partnered up with ‘BlackBelt Smartphone Defence’ as our preferred partner. BlackBelt supports all major operating systems providing secure data erasure solutions that are ADISA accredited and meet UK Government standards. Upon successful data erasure a unique data wipe certificate is provided for each device for added peace of mind
