Gazelle is the leading e-commerce company that buys and sells pre-owned consumer electronics. We pay cash for used smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops. We then inspect, certify them and sell them to consumers looking for a cost effective way to stay connected. Gazelle is simple, it’s green, and it works for everyone. How did we get here?
The Gazelle story began with the realization that if you can trade in a used car why can’t you trade in a used phone. A new business, and a new way to reuse consumer electronics, was born.
Gazelle opened its doors in 2007 and began pioneering this new idea we call reCommerce. We launched Gazelle.com in 2008 offering a simple online trade-in service, with instant quotes and free shipping, and things really began to take off. In 2014, we launched a store to sell Certified pre-owned devices, giving consumers a great alternative to buying new smart devices.
Today, Gazelle is a flourishing e-commerce business and the nation’s leading consumer electronics trade-in site where you can buy Certified pre-owned devices or trade in your unwanted devices for cash. We’ve handled more than 2 million consumer devices and paid out more than $250 million for items people no longer needed. Our team has grown, with our headquarters in Boston and operations facilities in Kentucky.
But Gazelle is about more than numbers. It’s about reCommerce: Changing the way we all think about buying, owning, selling and recycling. We work hand-in-hand with our customers to enhance value and make good things happen in every part of the consumer electronics lifecycle.
