About Trade-in Values

A: Yes. Clover Wireless periodically, reviews the current trade-in value table and updates the value calculator based on market conditions. However, once you have you have received your estimate we will hold the estimated value for 30-days.
Q. Will my trade-in estimate ever change?
A: The estimated value is only valid for 30-days. As long as we receive your used device within 30-days of your initial estimate, and it is in the condition you reported, your quoted value will remain the same. After the 30-day period has expired, the quoted estimate is subject to change upon final verification.

Q. What if the condition of my phone is different from what I represented?
A: If the device condition differs materially from that which you described, we reserve the right to recalculate the value using the same condition parameters originally available to you. You are under no obligation to accept the recalculated estimate and no trade is final until the device has been mailed.
Q. Does a damaged product qualify for a trade-in?
A: Some products may contain physical or functional defects and still qualify for a trade-in value. However, in order to receive the maximum available trade-in value, your device should be in current working order.
Q. What about my accessories ? do you recycle them too?
A: When you recycle a product through us you can send in the accessories as well, however unless specifically asked for during the product evaluation, this is not required. Accessories include things like power cords, chargers, batteries, connector cables, holders, sleeves, and protectors.
Q. Can I trade in more than one item?
A: Absolutely. Each item is valued individually, and assigned a unique tracking number to ensure traceability all the way through to resale or recycling. You will receive a separate check for multiple trade-ins.
Q. What about all the data I have on my phone or tablet?
A: We encourage you to clear any personal data from your device before shipping the device in to us. All products are subject to a certified data removal process upon receipt.
For phones and other devices with built-in memory, all numbers, contacts, data files and other information are completely erased. And the device is restored to its original settings. Any SIM cards received will be removed and destroyed.
For devices with a separate hard drive, all hard drives are erased and completely rewritten, erased and rewritten again, then erased one final time so that data retrieval is virtually impossible. For products going to recycling, the hard drives are removed and held in a lock box until they are able to be smelted.
