General

Once you book your order via our website or a 3rd party website you will be able to receive your pre-paid postage package.

Afterwards, once you remove all of your personal details from the device, you can package it and post it back to us with the provided pre-paid label.
Throughout the process, we will keep you in the loop. You can track your parcel with Royal Mail and you will be notified when your device arrives with us.

Once we have inspected your device you will receive a notification email confirming your payment or if we have found a discrepancy or a fault that prevents your device to reach the full 'up to' quote, we will update you with our evaluation results and the available options. Along the whole journey, our Customer Support team is there to help either via phone, email, or social media.
The Royal Mail pre-paid label we provide is a 24-hour delivery service. Though please bear in mind that we are closed during weekends and bank holidays.

If you have requested a pack to be sent to you, shipping times can be up to 3 working days.
Once you have completed your order submission, you will receive a confirmation email informing you how to remove your personal data and your shipping options to get the device to us.

The next contact you will receive from us will either be a follow-up email if you don't send your device within 4 days or a notification email to confirm we have safely received your device.

Once you have received a notification email from us to confirm we have safely received your device, the next point of contact will be from our team to confirm whether your device has reached a full 'up to' valuation or a valuation of the current state of your device. Please lookout for this email, if we don't hear from you within 72 hours of delivering your final quote we will presume you would like to be paid and recycle your device.
The quote on your order will be valid for fourteen (14) days from your order submission date. To achieve the maximum quote we must receive your device in our facility within fourteen (14) days and for us to value your device at the full quote price based on functionality, network, condition, battery health & usage, device specification, third party parts, screen burns, and the background of the device.

If we update our site 'up to' prices within fourteen (14) days of your submission, this will not affect the 'up to' quote you received at the time of your order, which can still be achieved.

We do ask that you ship your item to us as soon as possible so that we can complete your order in the shortest possible turnaround time. Please note that devices tend to depreciate over time, so sending in your device quickly will help you to receive the most for your device.
Please contact our Customer Support team at contact@grademobile.co.uk, to let them know what you would like changed so that they can change it for you.
Unfortunately, any accessories, boxes, etc that are sent with the parcel get automatically disposed of for health and safety reasons.

Please use the packaging provided or any other packaging suitable for transit to protect your device.
Simply visit the link attached to your email within 72 hours to reject the offer and your device will get dispatched back to you.

If for any reason that link isn't available, feel free to respond to the email and reject the offer, so that our team can send it back to you.
All devices are evaluated by our Diagnostics team via robotics and manual tests to determine if the initial quote you received is correct or if any adjustments need to be made.

If any changes have been made to your quote you will be notified via the emailed report.

Sending your device

Please refrain from sending anything other than your phone as it won't change your quote and the items might get disposed of for Health and Safely reasons.
When sending your device, please only include the invoice the packaging came with, or a note with your Full Name, your Order ID and your email address.

That way we can determine that the device belongs to you, as otherwise, it will be difficult matching the device to the appropriate owner.
A Postage Pack will be sent to all customers upon receiving your recycling request. The pack will include a pre-printed return label, secure packaging, and instructions.

Your pack will be sent via Royal Mail, you will receive your pack within 48 hours of your submission. Please note that sometimes it can take up to 72 hours.
We have 3 options available for you:

Print a pre-paid Royal Mail shipping label from home which can be generated by clicking here, which will take you to our section of the Royal Mail website.

Alternatively, you can wait for your postage pack to come to your address. We automatically send a postage pack to every order on the day of your order submission. The pack will include a pre-printed return label, packaging and instructions. Please allow up to 3 days to receive your pack. In most cases, they are received the next day.

If you don't have a printer at home and don't want to wait for your postage pack to arrive, you have the option to download a QR code to your phone. The QR code will be downloadable once you have generated a free Royal Mail label by clicking here. Take your parcel to the Post Office and simply show the QR code to a staff member at your local Post Office. They will scan the QR Code from your phone which will allow their Post Office system to print the shipping label for you to stick to the package free of charge. Make sure you have the Device boxed up ready for the shipping label to be stuck on. The Post Office will not provide you with the packaging

It is advised to keep track of your Order ID, your device's IMEI number and also your Tracking Number, in case they are needed at any point while the device is in transit.
