    These guys where great, gave me a great price for my old N95,

    Sent the PP envelope and details quickly and processed my phone the day they recieved it and my cheque was sent that afternoon, You can track the progress on line so you know just where your transaction is up to,

    Would be more than happy to use them again.

    Excellent service. Got my cheque 2 days after posting my phone. Monkeyboy, you registered on moneysavingexpert to post once about mazuma... Hmm, something tells me you're lying cause ive never had problems with them.

    Sold a phone to them, got the envelope a few days later, sent the phone then got a letter saying they will pay £32 odd as agreed on a date about 35 days ahead. The bank payment was then made 30 days later

    I've used them twice - always pay the amount stated on website. On my 2nd order the cheque hadn't turned up in about a week - I called up to be told the cheque had been sent - they cancelled & reissued it and I got the new cheque in a few days

    Also I sent the first phone recorded delivery, but the 2nd just went freepost & still turned up fine.

    Will be using them again shortly!

    Went with this company as from what i had read seemed quiet good. They didn't disappoint.

    Order date - 2nd April
    Approved - 3rd April
    Pre paid post bag/info received - 4th April (sat morning)

    I posted it all off same day at midday as was going into town anyway.

    Received cheque - 8th April (cheque dated 7th April)

    Fantastic turn around and got £15 for a non working nokia 6300, can't grumble at that.

    I have used these guys once and received a good service.

    Envelope arrived after 3 days and I posted the next day. I was warned at the Post Office (when I asked for proof of postage) that many items had been claimed as damaged in the post for people sending to Mazuma as the envelopes were not padded, the post office staff were suggesting they may not payout for damage claims if extra padding was not used. I had bubble wrapped my phone and it was not of great value so I sent it anyway.

    I received an email reply three days after that to say the phone was processed and a cheque was on the way.

    Cheque for the full amount arrived four days later.

    Used them twice.

    Sent off the phone this Monday 11/05/09 using their freepost bag, didn't bother queuing up at post office to ask for proof of postage.

    Email confirming receipt and then confirming processed on 12/05/09.

    Received Argos voucher on 13/05/09.

    Have used Mazuma three times now to sell mobiles as and when the family has upgraded their handsets. It's been fabulous - really quick and completely hassle free. The bag arrives very quickly after placing the order and my cheques have arrived within a couple of days of sending off the phone - brilliant. Will definitely use again.
  • puppyduck
    Great service.
    filled in details of my phone on line last thursday.
    bag & posting instructions arrived friday.
    posted phone using bag and recorded delivery post (cost 0.75p extra) on saturday.
    received my m&s vouchers wednesday morning.

    Hi I have just recycled an unworking phone with Mazuma. Their service was quick and they kept me informed with emails. I received my cheque today so I can say that I am happy with these guys.
