Trade-In Tech started in 2012 in a one bedroom apartment. The founder, Hayden Howard saw an increasing demand in the mobile phone industry, then created the company. We use to buy iPhones one by one off of Craigslist and resell them on eBay, a lot has changed since then. Over the past few years, we have become one of the most trusted mobile phone distributors in the nation. We have strategically partnered with retail stores, carrier trade-in programs and manufacturers to source the highest quality handsets.


Trade-In Tech is growing faster than ever. Through a combination of long term industry knowledge, excellent team management and great customer service, we have the ability to work with everyone. Our operations include intensive quality control procedures, international distribution and full handset refurbishing. We understand the challenges you may face with your growing company and we are here to offer a solution. Our goal is to always improve quality standards and offer the most consistent and reliable services to our clients.
