Lecia camera in a box

 

MPB, the world's largest online platform for used photo and video kit, is calling on consumers to take advantage of the platforms out there that are helping us to recirculate and reuse the items we own.

Instead of discarding that old item or letting it gather dust on a shelf, consumers can take advantage of platforms that will give them money or facilitate them selling their old items. Not only can people make some space in their homes, but they can also pocket a bit of cash which will be a welcomed bonus after, what could have been, an expensive last few months of the year. 

Christmas puts a huge financial strain on individuals. Recent YouGov data shows that the average spend over Christmas last year was £1,108, over £200 more than the year before. Of this, gifts made up £388, with many being an upgrade of an item that someone already owned, such as a phone or camera. 

Matt Barker, CEO and Founder at MPB, commented: "A bit of extra money in our back pockets after an expensive Christmas period is never a bad thing. Whether it is selling on an old bit of tech because you’ve had an upgrade, or you’re someone that received one of the 23 million unwanted gifts that are given each year, there are platforms out there that make it really easy to recoup some money and start the new year on a better financial footing."

If you’ve been lucky enough to have a camera upgrade and want to offload your older model, then the average sale quote to MPB is £327. For those buying used Photo and Video Kit from MPB, on average they save a third compared to if they had bought the same model new.

"Sell the kit you’re not using to MPB. Trade in for the kit you need to create. Buy used, spend less and get more." MPB

Matt continued: "The circular economy is extremely important, and it is growing every year. For this to continue it is up to people to not only recirculate stuff they own and don’t want but to think used first and buy products second hand. Research we carried out showed only 29% of people were considering gifting used last Christmas, so we clearly still have work to do here.

Cameras are an example of an item that is built to an extremely high quality and designed to last. Not only could you get a high-quality camera in perfect working order, but you can also get it cheaper than if you bought it new."

If you want to sell or trade-in your old photography kit with MPB, you’ll get free insured doorstep collection, payment within two days and free delivery on anything you buy in exchange. For more information, visit their website by clicking the button below.
