Console Central UK – Our Story
Back in late 2010, Ash (Managing Director), was a self-employed broker, specialising in the trade of high value pre-owned goods.
A friend, who was unfamiliar with electricals, asked him to assist her in finding a used Playstation 3 for her brother who had recently had his stolen during a burglary.
Spotting that the market for these second hand goods was a minefield and that many of the offerings on eBay, Gumtree and Facebook were machines that had been interfered with or badly repaired, he sold his own Playstation to her so that they both had peace of mind that she was buying a machine that was sound and free of defects.
During a period of reflection that followed, it was decided that there was a gap in the marketplace for a business that could offer quality used machines at affordable prices and on the back of this, Console Central was born.
What started as a modest bedroom business in 2011 had evolved by 2015 into one of the leading businesses in the online preowned and refurbished video games console marketplace. New product lines were established and the business also moved into the repairs marketplace and established itself as a trusted and well recognised repair business in the years that followed.
The business further evolved in 2017 to take on a variety of trade customers and has regularly satisfied the needs of various exporters, traders, clients in the Electrical Rentals sector and even a Championship football club!
As part of a restructure in January 2020, the business has now become a subsidiary of Digirealm Trading Limited and looks to continue to build on the strong foundations that we have built over the last (almost) decade.
Our ethos is simple – We are a business that you can transact with, safe in the knowledge that you will be buying products that have been checked, tested and that meet our exacting standards. You can also be reassured that should you need assistance with your product, or in the unlikely event that you encounter a defect, that we are here to support you.
We look forward to welcoming you all as customers.
