Second Rotation: Turn Old Gadgets Into Cash

by Paul Strauss

Are you an early adopter like me? If so, I bet you’ve got some old electronic gear lying around and gathering dust. This new service makes it easy to easily make some cold hard lucre in exchange for your old gadgets.

Second Rotation Description

Second Rotation provides all the tools you need to quickly estimate the value of your old gadgets, ship them and cash out. Unlike eBay auctions, Second Rotation takes care of picking up your old items and paying you as soon as they receive the item. There’s no direct selling, and you don’t have to pay fees, deal with unreliable buyers or the possibility that your item won’t sell at all.

Their online product estimator works sort of like a “blue book” for electronics, automatically pricing your item based on things like features, completeness of accessories, age and condition. While I couldn’t find every gadget ever made in their database, I’m sure they’ll be adding more as time progresses.

Once you submit your item information, they’ll send DHL to pick it up and ship it back to them. After they have it in their hands and confirm that it’s what you said it was, they’ll send you a check or PayPal the money to you. All in all, it takes about 5 to 10 days from when they receive your item to when you get your cash.

Since the company does act as a middleman in your transaction, don’t expect to make what you could on eBay by yourself. However, if you’re looking for a fast, hassle-free way to unload your old tech, this service is definitely worth a look.

    Hacked into their voicemail? That sounds just a little bit illegal.

    Anyone from Second Rotation care to comment on MrProper’s concerns?

    oh.. it was an easy hack.. not really a hack per to say, i hit star t traverse menus and then tried 1-2-3-4 to get to the extentions and viola i was there.. trust me, i got the guys attention, he called promptly. and i told him to change his voicemail password to something other than 1234.. nothing illegal there.. it’s your burden of proof.

    and furthermore, if they don’t pay me the money they owe me i’ll beep the phone numbers out of these messages and release them.

    nothing i have done or may do is illegal.

    i have contacted a couple people on these voicemails and one said she recieved her money, so maybe these guys are far behind, not ripping people off.
