‘THE RENEWABLES’ [Ree-new-a-bals]
a group of talented individuals who band together for a common aim
The Renewable Mobile Group was created by a group of passionate professionals who wanted to make a sustainable environmental difference, in an industry where e-waste is common practice. With over 150 million smart devices being dumped in land-fill every year, the impact on the environment is devastating and the effects imposed on the developing nations to which much of this e-waste is shipped is ruinous.
The Renewable Mobile Group (or ‘Renewables’ as we like to be known) is fuelled by our desire to find an alternative solution; to provide you with an alternative option to buying brand new and to stop adding to the destruction of our planet. We have created a movement to encourage people to use things more than once. To re-cycle and to re-use is our mantra. We understand that mobile devices are an essential part of life for us all, but it’s time to consider the repercussions of buying new.
Don’t buy brand new, just re-new
The Renewables love their mobile devices just as much as you do, but they love their planet more. So it’s time to consider a recycled option. We buy second hand at every turn – think cars, houses, clothes, so why not mobile devices? The Renewables offer you the latest smart phone device at a fraction of the cost of a brand new one. We provide you, your family or your business with a cheaper, alternative, mobile solution and reduce the impact on our environment at the same time. It’s that simple.
The Renewable Alternative
When you buy a mobile device from the Renewable Mobile Group you know that it has been through a rigorous testing and data cleansing process. This amounts to a journey; hours of work to ensure that every device is as good as its brand new counterpart.
The Renewables Process
Sourcing Devices is the key to our business model, as the saying goes, “Stock is King” and over the years we have built strong relationships & agreements with some of the major Corporations, Retailers, E-tailers, Government & Education departments around the country. We deliver our end to end solution by providing secure & legal compliance, certified data – erasure as well as freight pick up via our carriers. Technical support & repair is supported via our in house team coupled with a comprehensive pricing matrix to maximize your ROI.
Your device is evaluated and data cleansed using Accredited software which means all Data is wiped and New software uploaded. At this stage the device also goes through a 50 point diagnostics process to ensure all functions are working and functional inc Battery, Cameras, charge ports, speakers, home button, vibrator and LCD Screen to name just a few. Should any of these functions fail then the device is diverted into our Technical dept for evaluation .
The device will then be cosmetically graded, depending upon its usability this will affect where your device ends up. It may be repaired, software updated, recycled or alternatively it may be used for spare parts.
This step marks the beginning of a lengthy process of repair, dismantling and recycling. We call this process the Donor stage and parts can be used to repair other devices that have failed. Should the device be totally unusable then we classify this as a recyclable device and which is then sent to an Australian owned authorised recycler to break down into precious metals and plastic to be reused in other products.
Your device is fully sanitised and “Renewed” to perfection, then custom packaged along with compatible accessories and warranty information that is supplied specifically for your device.
Your device is then distributed through our comprehensive dealer network, Australia-wide.
The finished product is a fully certified & tested “Renewed” product with a limited 12 month warranty support and a 14 day money back guarantee.
The total process normally takes approx 7 days from arrival of device to dispatch and is handled by at least 5 different departments during the entire process. Not as simple as it sounds right.
Let’s not make do, or buy brand new – let’s just re-new
And so, the Renewables call on you to help make a difference. You can continue to use the most up to date of mobile device and still make a difference.
