Why Choose Us


The Tech Octopus is the Fast, Free & Fair way to sell your old, used or unwanted Mobile Phones.

We believe that recycling your tech shouldn't be a hassle. We aim to make the process as simple and pain-free as possible...Plus you get a great price for doing so.

Every year, millions of iPhones, Samsung and other technology make their way to landfill, meaning they can't be refurbished and given a 2nd lease of life. We want to contribute to the circular economy by giving these devices another home, allowing other customers to benefit from this technology.
