We queue a lot, us Brits. In fact, we spend more than 18 hours a year doing it. We don’t enjoy it though - in a recent survey 44% of British consumers said they hated queuing more than washing up – it’s just that sometimes, standing in line is the only way of getting what we need. Queuing for trains, queuing for tickets, queuing for theme park rides… we’ve all been there.
And we’ve all seen news reports of people queuing to get their hands on the latest phones. Remember this classic?
But it doesn’t have to be like that. At Carphone Warehouse, we know you don’t like queuing. So we’ve made it quick and easy to get the latest and greatest handsets. Here’s how…
Beat the queues and order online
You don’t even have to leave your house to get a new phone from Carphone Warehouse. You can do it all online. Check if you’re eligible to upgrade here, and if you are, order your new phone here. We’ve got a huge range of mobile phones on the UK’s widest range of networks. You don’t have to worry about pounding the pavements and shopping around for the best deal – we’ve already done it for you.
When you’ve placed your order, it won’t be too long until your phone arrives. We offer free next day delivery, 7 days a week. And we’ll give you a 1 hour delivery window, so you don’t have to waste time waiting around.
Buy your phone in-store
A new phone can be a major investment, so you might want to get some expert advice before you buy. If so, pop in to one of our stores and have a chat with an in-store colleague. They’ll quickly find out exactly how you use your phone, and then find the best possible deal for you. In a matter of minutes, you could be walking out of the store with a shiny new phone. You might have to queue for the bus home, but when you’ve got that ‘new phone feeling’, who cares?
