It’s astonishing how quickly new technology moves out of the spotlight and relinquishes center stage to a new hero. There are more innovators now than ever, and companies continue to improve and iterate year after year, quarter after quarter, in the hopes of inspiring all of us to trade our dollars for the new and improved.

We need our devices, and not just for professional reasons, but for entertainment. However, with the population here on our little green ball of dirt and water rapidly approaching the eight-billion mark, reducing e-waste is just as important as having those devices in our hands.

So what do you do when there’s no more space in the closet for yesterday’s tablet–or yesterday’s tablet is exactly what you’re looking for? Decluttr has your answer with its online catalog of refurbished pre-owned gadgets that will keep your wallet fat and our landfills skinny. Whether you’re looking to unload your device or buy something new, Decluttr has something for you.

Decluttr is an Atlanta-based pre-owned electronics vendor full of professionally renewed and refurbished iPhones, e-readers, MacBooks, wearables, game consoles, and more. They also stock products outside of the tech realm.

If you purchase a device from Decluttr, you can rest assured knowing you won’t be unboxing a lemon. Decluttr only gives their stamp of approval to items that have passed through a rigorous battery of quality checks administered by their experienced roster of technology professionals.

The company has an environmentally friendly mission focused on reducing e-waste. You can help Decluttr in their goal to keep devices out of landfills by selling them what you’re no longer using instead of throwing it away. Decluttr provides free valuations on everything from CDs to consoles, stating that they “pay the most for tech and up to 33% more than traditional carrier buy-back programs.”

Buying an Item Through Decluttr

At a fraction of the list price slapped on new hardware, you can comfortably indulge your technology cravings with a guilt-free smile on Decluttr’s refurbished inventory. You’ll also save some coin on shipping through Decluttr, as tracked shipping is standard and included at no additional cost on every item in their expansive inventory. And if you need a replacement for a device sooner rather than later but are short on cash, you can opt for splitting your purchase into four interest-free payments with Klarna.

Everything being sold has been handled by in-house professionals, and devices like phones receive 90-point diagnostic checks to ensure that you can shop with confidence.They also offer a 14-day money-back guarantee and a free 12-month limited warranty.

The Money Back Guarantee is great. If you aren’t 100% happy with your device, you just email Decluttr your order number, and they’ll send you instructions for returning your device with a free postage label. This warranty covers technical defects and faults caused by improper workmanship or materials. If the warranty doesn’t cover the issue, the item will be returned to you–if it does, technicians will either repair the issue or provide a replacement. If neither a repair nor a replacement are options, you’ll be given a refund.
