Selling Your Gear - FAQ
What if I’m not sure about how to describe my gear or its condition?
Don't worry! Just give it your best guess and include as much information as you can in the full description box. Photos always help too. We'll base our estimate on the information you give us and once we check your gear in person we’ll adjust the quote up or down if appropriate. Obviously you are free to accept or reject any offer.
What if I change my mind?
No problem. You can change your mind at any point, right up until we pay you for your gear.
I filled in your form but haven’t received an estimate yet. What should I do?
I can't bring my gear into the store personally. Is that an issue?
Nope, not a problem.
If you're happy with our initial estimate we're happy to arrange courier collection. We might ask you to send us more photos of your gear first, just to double check its description and condition. All you'd need to do afterwards is package up your gear and make it ready for collection. We'll send you full instructions once we've arranged an appropriate courier service
Why can I sometimes see similar gear on Ebay/Gumtree etc. going for more than your estimate?
Cards on the table. We'll always offer you our best price on your gear but we are a business and at the end of the day we have to turn a profit. Even ignoring the day to day cost of running the store, buying in gear (new or used!) is always a risk and there's never a guarantee that we'll be able to sell it on. When we do sell gear we have pay the VAT which isn't the case for personal sales on auction sites. Also, just because gear is listed at a certain price in an auction doesn't mean that it'll actually sell for that price.
So...I might get more by selling my gear in an online auction or directly to another person?
However it might take you considerably longer as there's no guarantee that you'll actually find a buyer. Also, unless you are lucky enough to find a buyer locally you'll have to bear the cost of shipping your gear which can be surprisingly expensive and also factor in the fees from payment services like PayPal or Worldpay.
Once we've checked your gear and given you a final estimate, what you've been offfered is 100% what you'll end up with in your pocket or as credit against new gear. No hidden costs.
