Smart Buyers Guide: Collectibles

Before purchasing a used smartphone or tablet, be sure to take these steps to ensure that you will be satisfied with your purchase for years to come.

Check the condition of the item in person:

It is the buyer's responsibility to fully inspect the item at the scheduled meet-up to ensure you are getting the item you are expecting. Close5 simply provides the platform for buying & selling, as well as state that all sales are final in our [Community Guidelines](

Things to check for include: stains, tears, cleanliness

Confirm that the item is authentic

We recommend checking if the item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and/or is has a serial number that is part of a registration. You can also call the company to double check if the item is real.
