Mobiles to recycle or repair?

At Cellhire we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously.

We’ve joined forces with our sister company to provide a safe recycling solution for any phones that might prove excess to requirements. Clients simply put the handsets in the post, or call to arrange a courier service for larger quantities.

FoneFix, as the name implies, can also repair handsets and is an accredited Nokia and Samsung Care Centre, undertaking warranty repairs free of charge. For more details visit the FoneFix website.

Ian Dawson, General Manager at FoneFix comments “As well as reparatory work we want to make life easier for customers that have upgraded their mobiles or have mobiles that they no longer use or need”.

Mobile Broadband for Swine Flu

Cellhire came to the assistance of a leading insurance broker earlier this month, when the swine flu pandemic posed a serious threat to business.

The client anticipated staffing problems and requested mobile broadband modems on weekly rental, to allocate to personnel as and when they were unable to make it in to work.

Aside from those contracting the virus, several staff were themselves unaffected, but their partners or children caught swine flu and these people were therefore unable to come to work.

Eventually the client had over twenty key staff unable to make it into the office due to the effects of the swine flu virus. Mobile broadband connectivity enabled them to access and act upon their emails, mitigating the effects of the virus upon company performance.

Mark Arnell, head of sales at Cellhire comments “Mobile broadband as a weekly or monthly rental proposition is ideal for clients wanting to retain ‘business as usual’ in situations such as this; connectivity is maintained, but in a cost effective way, because there are no long term tie-ins to consider”.
