Cell Phone Erasure
Three out of the four largest cellular operators in North America rely on HOBI’s commitment to secure data removal. HOBI does not sell any phone unless we can personally verify 100 percent of personal programmable data has been eliminated. We have developed industry leading cell phone erasure tools and processes to provide this assurance to our clients and will guarantee that no customer programmable data ever leaves our facility.

World-Wide Retail and Wholesale Channels
Maximizing the value of your cell phone is our goal. HOBI is proud to have developed an extensive global retail and wholesale customer base. That customer base ensures robust demand for all products that we sell.
Our Proprietary Processes
HOBI has developed a proprietary process for quickly evaluating client’s equipment to determine the best course to maximize the value of the product. After the product has been identified for processing, we put it through our proprietary erasure process. Any product that cannot be erased and verified is destroyed, and put through our parts recovery process. HOBI puts an emphasis on quickly evaluating your equipment, determining which products have a value in the market as either whole units or parts, and executing on our processes to clean, clear and sell your products at the highest value.

Since 2005, we have developed a customer list for many unique and special items that do not have a steady demand.
