Pricing

All pricing displayed on YouRenew is subject to change without notice. YouRenew reserves the right to adjust pricing due to errors, market conditions, or other extenuating circumstances at the point of inspection.

Product Valuation and Payment

All original quotes are based on your description of the device and data gathered through YouRenew. Quotes are valid for thirty days after the offer date, but are subject to change in the event that items are materially different than described on the Site or for any other reason deemed necessary and allowed by these Terms of Service. Final determination of an item’s value occurs after receipt of your package.

If a discrepancy comes up during the inspection process, YouRenew will communicate its revised offer. Please note: once a device is mailed, it cannot be returned.

The payment process begins as soon as your all of your items pass final inspection. Please allow up to ten (10) business days for processing before your payment is issued. Also be aware that checks are mailed via the USPS, and this may take additional time.

If payment via check is issued by YouRenew but is lost, a replacement check will only be issued after a sixty day waiting period.

Shipping Your Product to YouRenew

YouRenew utilizes the United Parcel Service (UPS) as our primary shipping service. From time to time, YouRenew may utilize other shipping carriers at its sole discretion. Upon accepting YouRenew’s quote for an item and submitting the required information, YouRenew may issue you a prepaid shipping label if your order qualifies. If you use any shipping service or carrier besides that which is offered by YouRenew you must do so at your own expense. YouRenew does not pay shipping for devices with no value, nor does it pay shipping for devices shipped from outside the United States.

With our shipping label you may either pack your items in your own shipping carton or use a box that is available for purchase at a UPS outlet. All shipping costs are prepaid when you use our prepaid label. If you wish to fully insure your package, insurance must be purchased by you at your sole expense.

Tracking Your Items

Once we receive your order we will notify you via email confirming the arrival of your item(s). Upon inspection of the order, we will again notify you. This email will either confirm that payment has been approved in the amount of the original quote, or will address any discrepancies with your item(s). Once your item(s) are fully processed and all items accounted for, an email will confirm that payment has been issued.

Product Inspection

Upon receipt of any order, YouRenew uses a rigorous process to inspect the item(s). YouRenew reserves the right to accept or deny any item. YouRenew will use its best discretion to determine the product value. If the item is consistent with the submission information, with all materials described, and arrives at YouRenew in a timely manner (within 30 days of the quote), YouRenew will honor the original quote offered for the product and reflected on the trade in receipt. In some cases, YouRenew may revise the original quote for the item if the item is not in the condition that was originally described. Item conditions are defined as:

  • Perfect: An item in perfect condition functions flawlessly, shows no signs of use, and has no dust, scratches, or blemishes present.
  • Good: An item in good condition functions flawlessly, shows small scratches and blemishes, but has a perfect screen.
  • Fair: An item in fair condition functions flawlessly, shows worn keys and paint, and has scratches.
  • Poor: An item in poor condition is fully functional, but may have one of more issues including a broken antenna, broken hinge, broken or cracked display, broken or missing keys, broken or missing trackball, broken ports or inputs, a burned screen, cracks or deep dents, dead pixels, internal modifications, a missing battery cover, a missing or corrupted ESN or MEID, a scratched display, or worn or scratched paint.
