Apple, Slot Partner Aweskim Technology on Used Phones

By Dipo Olowookere

In order to make premium phone brands available to Nigerians at cheaper rates and without issues, a leading dealer of used phones in Nigeria, Aweskim Technology, has entered into partnership deals with Apple and Slot, the leading mobile retail giant in the country.

While Aweskim Technology sealed a deal with Apple as its official retail partner for used phones, it inked a pact with Slot as its official trade-in partner.

Aweskim Technology recently commenced the trade in and buy back scheme, which allows customers trade in old phones for a new device at any Slot store.

Managing Director of Aweskim Technology, Mr Paul Oloruntobi Oluwatosin, noted that, “We started trading on certified used Apple devices exclusively in 2015.

“Prior to that, we sold Apple and Blackberry devices. As soon as a new Apple phone is launched, Aweskim Technology device would be amongst the first to shelf the product.

“We pride ourselves in the fact that our brand has consistently been amongst the first to deliver the new iPhones as soon as they are launched in the Nigerian market. After Blackberry closed shop, we started dealing solely on apple devices 100 percent.

“Our unique partnership with Apple and certain manufacturers of android phones has made us unique and exceptional as far as the selling of used phones are concerned.

“All our phones are directly purchased from the authorised manufacturers of the phone; we do not source for phones from Nigeria.

“Sometimes, we are contacted by manufacturers- Apple included- to buy out stock and we also directly deal with certain wholesalers who purchase their products directly from Apple. This is to avoid purchasing badly used, damaged or stolen phones.”

“For those who are only interested in selling off their devices, we ensure they come with the phone’s box and a receipt and when the receipt isn’t available, the customer is required to write an undertaken and attach a copy of a valid ID card. All these measures are put in place to ensure that only quality goods are bought and sold,” he clarified.

Aweskim Technology recently opened a store in Abuja so those in the nation’s capital city can benefit from the services of selling good and reliable used phones rendered by the firm. The company plans to extend to other 35 states of the country as soon as possible.
