Mobile phone panel also known as "board" is the machinery that makes the phone to works.
And one good thing about this business is, you make alot when you split sell to the company.
This is what i mean by split-sell: when your customers brought a scrap phone to you, first open the phone if it comes with casing and if it only the panel remove the cameras and vibrator from the board and sell it off separately.

Side note: it only the panels, cameras and vibrators you sell to company the remaining things such as: the casing, screen, speaker, batteries etc can fetches you extra income when you sell them to phones repairers.

One important thing you need to do before starting this business

  • Make enquiry from those that will be buying the scrap panel on the price before starting: I suggest this because knowing the price will make you know how much you will be buying from your customers. and take note: the company price per panel may changes from time to time but, most times it works in your favour. So always ask for the price in other to stay updated.
