For our clients that means high volumes for little effort! Teqcycle stands for secure and sustainable trade-in solutions for large numbers of used mobile devices: cellphones, smartphones and tablets.

We are all about cyclicity. The circular economy is in our DNA. And our goal is to make a difference! We have been a partner to international operators and retailers, manufacturers and corporate customers for many years now. We are First Choice 4 Second Life!

23 million new smartphones are sold every year in Germany alone. Countless numbers of them end up disappearing in drawers or cupboards as unused back-up devices, or are sold through unsafe internet portals. But people seriously neglect the issue of data when selling private and commercially used smartphones. And the often still considerable residual values are frequently underestimated, leading to these expensive devices losing more and more value every day!

And what is more, large amounts of precious raw materials are left unused: In the 1.5 billion smartphones that were sold worldwide in 2018, there were 34 tons of gold and 350 tons of silver! Teqcycle changes all that with an innovative trade-in concept!

Teqcycle is the technology leader in Germany and your specialist for the safe trade-in of mobile devices.

New digital device generations keep coming into your enterprise at ever shorter intervals and you don't know what to do with your old devices? Hundreds of mobile phones end up on your desk every week? Your 14-day stock just keeps growing and growing? DOA - dead on arrival - and buyer's remorse drive your stocks sky high, and the capital tied up in all those devices is lacking as liquidity elsewhere? You don't have a truly safe way to protect the personal data on hundreds of discarded company phones? The sales of your new devices urgently need a boost? As does the conversion rate of your online shop?

Then Teqcycle is the perfect partner for your company! We offer turnkey trade-in solutions for business clients, manufacturers, operators and retailers – and a resourceful, innovative omni-channel service that encompasses the entire supply chain, from purchasing the devices through to logistics and data deletion, all the way through to their resale. Teqcycle is the leading provider of trade-in solutions in Europe, with a clear focus on the mobile devices of business clients!

Our fully integrated online trade-in solutions and upgrade programs help you heighten your success at the POS. Our Shop Trade-In concept is ideal here! We guarantee corporate customers secure and audited takeback systems via standard portals, or individually customized solutions bearing your logo. Our customer care is aimed at first and second level support. For business clients we are the first choice for the second life of their used mobile devices!

Everybody is talking about digitalization – We're doing it! That means our processes are fast, efficient and 100% transparent. Your sales gain new momentum and your old devices a new life. Your dead capital becomes agile liquidity. Now that's what we call a win-win situation!
