Got an Old Two-Way Radio? Trade it in for CASH with our Cash 4 Clunkers Program

Let’s say you’re a school administrator who wants to update the two-radio system at their school but doesn’t have the funds in the budget to spend on it. What happens? It gets put on the back burner and forgotten.

The same thing goes for factory settings or law enforcement situations: if you can ‘make do’ with what you already have, you don’t spend the money. Updating the radio system, even though your equipment is obsolete and you badly need to get new gear, sometimes ends up lower on the priority list than it should be. That, my friends, is a mistake, because fast, clear communication is a vital part of any operation.

However, there is great news for government, business or public safety departments looking to finally trade up their ‘clunkers’ for radios they don’t have to bang on a desk or scream into to be heard.

Get money for your used two-way radios

Discount Two-Way Radio proudly offers the only two-way radio Cash 4 Clunkers program in America!

We’ve partnered with RCA to help businesses trade up and improve their equipment. Just as the name suggests, by trading in your used radios and chargers, you can earn credit toward the purchase of a new radio system for your work place and staff.

As long as the radios were purchased within the last 10 years and your base of operations is located in the US or Canada, they are eligible and will be accepted in nearly any condition. Radios must include antenna, belt clip, charger and battery, and a few other conditions apply.

You will receive a credit amount based on the condition of the traded-in radios that can be applied to new radios that meet and exceed 2013 mandatory narrowbanding guidelines. Your staff will be able to rely on their devices and communicate with confidence, while you minimize out-of-pocket costs. It’s a win-win!

Here is all you have to do to get the process started:

  1. Go to the Cash 4 Clunkers page on Discount Two-Way
  2. Fill out the two-way radio trade-in form with your information to find out what your trade-in value is. Credit value depends on the model and condition of your radios and chargers.
  3. Print out a copy of the form, sign it and fax it to 877-291-9565 to have that credit applied to your purchase of new radio equipment.
  4. Recycle your old radios by sending them to: Discount Two-Way Radio Cash 4 Clunkers, 1430 240th St., Harbor City, CA 90710

(Please visit the two-way radio trade-in page for more details, terms and conditions)

This program was started to help make sure that regardless of budget cutting and belt tightening measures, businesses and public safety personnel would have ready access to the radio communication systems that work for them. The Cash 4 Clunkers program so far has been doing just that.

If you are using old two-way radios, there is no reason to put off trade-ins any longer — swap your old clunkers for state of the art equipment today!

Did You Know…

…there are 5 criteria to consider before buying two-way radios for your school?

School Administrator Contemplating1. Radio Power – One of the main factors that directly affect the radios performance, coverage and price. In almost all cases, Junior to High Schools will need at least 4 watts of power radios to ensure consistent coverage throughout the school. An elementary school on the other side will only need 2 watts of power radios which can results in about $60 savings per radio.

2. Durability and Reliability – Avoid purchasing radios made entirely out of plastic material, especially the ones that can be picked up in pairs from any retail store. These are radios for recreational purposes and will not survive the day to day use in the demanding business environments. They are cheaper one time purchase but you will end up buying new radios every year which will cost more in the long run.

3. Radio Frequencies – Always purchase radios that work on UHF frequencies 450-470MHz. These radios are able to penetrate through structures much better comparing to their VHF versions and will provide you with better coverage.

4. Warranty – The more the better. Nowadays, a good quality business two-way radio will have at least 2 years warranty. Don’t get stuck with equipment and brands that provide less than that. You will most certainly get stuck with the repair bill too as soon the 1 year warranty expires.

5. Price – The Price is always important but the cheapest radio is not necessarily the best option. Choosing radio equipment only by it’s price point in the market may end up costing you more in the long run. Making sure that the equipment is the right for your needs and will do the job you need it to, is most important. And if you compare different radios, make sure that they are similar with similar features, so you can choose the best product that fits into your budget.
