Posting Your Phones

Special Delivery – recommended

We recommend sending the parcel special delivery to the following address:

Aerial Recycle,
3 Long Yard,
Holborn,
London, WC1N 3LS

Special Delivery means your phone(s) are insured up to a value of £500.

Free tracked Returns

 

Once you’ve completed your order you can select a Free Tracked Returns service. You will need to print off a pre-paid postage label and take the parcel to your local Post office to obtain a tracked returns receipt that will include a 13 character reference allowing you to track your parcel at www.royalmail.com.

Please note; The Free Tracked Returns service is insured up to £50 as long as you retain your tracked returns receipt. We strongly recommend choosing Special Delivery for any orders over the value of £51 as it insures your handset(s) for up to £500 if lost or damaged. DO NOT use Royal Mail Signed For when sending via Free Tracked Returns as this will invalidate your insurance.

Please don’t post phones through our letter box, we can’t accept responsibility for phones that go missing if you do. Please hand your phones to a receptionist and request a receipt.

Lost, blocked or stolen mobile phones

CheckMend

 

All mobile phones received by Aerial Recycle are checked against the national CheckMend data base in order to establish if any phones have been registered lost, blocked or stolen by the Police, Insurance companies or Mobile Phone Networks.

This is done by Aerial Recycle submitting each 15 digit IMEI code, unique to each mobile phone, to CheckMend.

If your phone is found to be registered lost, blocked or stolen you will need to contact CheckMend if you wish to have it unblocked. You will be notified automatically by email of the process you will need to follow.

Any phones that are found to be registered lost, blocked or stolen will be quarantined for a period of 28 days. During this period if the block is removed the phone will be processed by Aerial Recycle and the full original quoted price will be paid.

If the block is not removed within the quarantine period of 28 days and the phone has not been claimed by its rightful owner it will be destroyed.

If you feel the information held by CheckMEND is incorrect please email CheckMEND at support@checkmend.com or call them on 08700 112 850 with all the details including the IMEI number and they will assist you.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding this by calling 0330 0969 410 or by emailing recycle@aerial-direct.co.uk.
