LG are just one of the many manufacturers of smartphones around the world.

If you have an LG phone and are considering cashing in on it, OnRecycle can help you. We specialise in linking sellers to buyers; providing a platform upon which to conduct the sale. Our system has been built through years of experience and design - we know what is important for you when it comes to selling your LG phone, and we make it easy.
Working within the mobile phone selling market has led us to build and maintain effective working relationships with many of the biggest names in online recycling. We have devised a price comparison website which allows you to take full advantage of the progress that we have made - linking you to a potential buyer within minutes of you entering the details of your mobile phone (not your personal details). Where we stand out from other companies is in our approach to selling: we put the consumer first. We know what it is like to be bombarded with aggressive sales calls and constant emails, which is why we do not take any unnecessary personal details from you.
The Price Comparison System
When you enter the details of your LG phone into the search bar (located at the top of the screen), you will notice a list of related phones. Select your device from this list and fill in the details on the new page. This will allow us to match the phone against accurate quotations, giving you a set of genuine recyclers, offering genuine prices.
Complete details of the phone's condition, version (in terms of storage size) and network that it is locked to (if any), and a list of recyclers will update beneath these options, complete with their quotations.
The next step is to select a recycler. You can adjust the order of the recyclers based on price, payment period and user rating. We recommend that you consider all of these factors before deciding on a buyer, rather than simply choosing the recycler who offers you the largest sum of cash. Once you have chosen, click on the 'sell now' button and you are ready to complete the sale. It couldn't be any simpler!
