Finding great deals on used tech (or making money by selling your own) shouldn’t be a painful experience. Unfortunately for Denver residents shopping for popular tech items like used iPhones, this is often the case.

Services like Craigslist and Facebook can be filled with scams and fraudsters, making it difficult to know which listings to trust. Instead of risking your money using these services, we’re here to share some exciting news. Starting today, Swappa Local is now officially available in Denver, Colorado.


Gorgeous blue skies (thanks to an abnormally high elevation), the Rocky Mountains, and popular ski resorts are what Denver is best known for. But they also have a deep history of food as the official birthplace of the cheeseburger, Quiznos, Smashburger, and Chipotle Mexican Grill. With Swappa Local now available in The Mile High City, Denver locals can experience a safer marketplace where they can finally trust the tech they buy.

Whether you’re looking to get rid of that old iPhone or find the best deals by shopping for newish tech, Swappa Local is changing the way people think of local marketplaces. Keep reading to find out why Swappa Local is the absolute best way to find the best tech deals in Denver.


What is Swappa Local?

Swappa online-only marketplace has been around since 2010, offering a safer alternative to sites like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. This has to do with our strict ‘no junk’ policy that requires all devices be fully functional and ready for activation. Our staff manually approves each listing before it goes live in our marketplace, and we perform background checks on used phones to ensure they haven’t been reported lost/stolen.

Swappa Local is built upon this same foundation of safety and support, only now we’re providing our users with next-day pickup and delivery for local transactions. Whether an item is available for shipping or next-day local pickup and delivery, Swappa users can rest easy knowing the devices they’re shopping for are legitimate. Our support team is available 365 days a year to answer any questions or concerns along the way. With Swappa Local, you always get the best deals on newish tech without having to pay the full MSRP.

Swappa Local highlights:

  • Next-day local pickup and delivery
  • Get your newly purchased items fast
  • No junk, broken, or blocklisted devices
  • Trusted community of buyers and sellers
  • 24/7 support, 365 days a year
  • Swappa Local allows you to trust the tech you buy

Swappa vs other online marketplaces

Other online marketplaces more closely resemble device junkyards, filled with broken or iCloud-locked devices that are sold by completely anonymous (and sometimes even fraudulent) users. This is because they offer little-to-no moderation and do virtually nothing to actually verify listings and make sure a listing is legitimate.  

While competing services have become breeding grounds for fraud and scammers, Swappa Local allows buyers to trust the tech they’re buying. This makes Swappa Local the best — and most logical — choice for buying and selling used tech in your local community.

Whether it’s our photo verification system or background checks we perform on used phones, there are plenty of reasons to buy your next device on Swappa Local. For more on how Swappa Local stacks up against the other guys, check out our more detailed post comparing Swappa vs OfferUp vs Letgo.
