If you are planning to start a new business or already have one that relies on smartphones, you already know that it can be very expensive to provide them for you and your employees. Unfortunately, most of the time you have to buy the latest and greatest phones in order to ensure that your phones have all of the necessary features.

However, having to buy new smartphones in order to get all of those features can get very expensive. Fortunately, there is a better way to go about getting the phones for your business all the while saving a whole lot of money, by buying refurbished or used smartphones. These devices are ones that other people have traded in or sold when they upgrade to a newer model in with their service provider.

The seller will check them out to ensure that they are functional and generally will clean them up so that they look as close to new as possible and turn around and resell them for a lesser price in order to make a profit.

Refurbishing and reselling products is a practice that has been around for quite a long time and has many definite advantages for both the buyer and the seller. It can be extremely beneficial for a small business that is just getting started.

Here are 5 ways buying refurbished phones can be good for a new business:

#1 Save a whole lot of money- New and improved smartphones with all the latest features are coming out all the time, but they are usually quite expensive. However, if you buy a phone that is a model older and refurbished, you get the benefits of most of the features you need and save a bunch of money per phone.

#2 Eco-friendly - Every year hundreds of thousands of phones are traded in and many will end up in the local landfills. However, if you were to buy refurbished phones for each of your employees that need phones, that would mean that many fewer phones that would have ended up somewhere in a landfill.

#3 Refurbished phones with more features - As stated earlier, many of the refurbished phones are just a model older than the ones with all the latest bells and whistles which means you can get a heck of a deal on a phone that will still have many of the features that you are probably going to need and you end up saving a whole lot of cash.

#4 Eliminates the need for long contracts - One of the big ways that service providers are able to convince people to buy the newer more expensive phones is by locking them into a long term contract and spread the cost of the phone over the length of the contract. By buying only refurbished phones, you aren't going to be tied to any lengthy contract.

#5 Better warranties than you get with a new phone- Warranties are one way that manufacturers and resellers often set themselves apart from their competitors by offering warranties for their new products. However, many of them have limitations and terms that might not really be all the great. Most often sellers of refurbished products offer a better, less limited warranties in order to entice buyers into using them. 

As you can see, there are a number of great reasons to consider buying refurbished phones for your business. Most of which involve saving a whole lot of money and still getting the benefit for you and your employees.
