Cork company Green Your Goods (at GYG.ie) lets you trade in all sorts of things from DVDs to mobile phones to games consoles, old PlayStations and Nintendo games to SatNavs, cameras or old iPods. You’ll even get a few quid for CDs from them.
“Anything we can sell we’ll take,” says CEO Barry Walsh. “We recently bought a Slendertone and two radar detectors.” They will pick up bulk things, like say a large box of DVDs, nationwide.
Walsh says Green Your Goods will match or top the prices paid by non-Irish competitors like Envirofone, Money4UrMobile or MoneyCashMonster in 90 per cent of cases. It has a price comparison tool on its website.
Old smartphones in particular are worth a wedge of cash. An iPhone 3GS 16GB pays about €110, a BlackBerry Bold9790 pays €124 and a Samsung Jet can be turned in for €32. Other items are relatively lucrative too. An old Macbook can fetch over €100 and a used Canon EOS camera is worth up to €192.
