Unfortunately, we don’t accept bags, tripods, film cameras or camcorders plus other accessories.

Is the quote for my item guaranteed?

All quotes display a maximum value as all items that are submitted for Trade-In are subject to inspection. A member of staff will inspect your item against our criteria and perform some simple tests. The inspection process combined with the number or accessories you have with your camera will determine the final value of your item. This value will be confirmed with you before you continue with your new purchase.

We have three conditions; Good, Excellent and Mint. A full description of their criteria can be found below. For all items, you will require the following accessories to gain the maximum value;

For lenses; front and rear lens caps, lens hoods & soft cases that came supplied with the lens

Can I go straight to store to trade in?

Yes, an instant valuation is available in all of our stores. You can walk into a store without an appointment and they can value your items for you and complete your new purchase. If you have an online quote and you want to complete the Trade-In at store, then just respond to the email and we can check stock of the new item for you ahead of your visit to store.

What do I need to take with me?

Please take your Trade-In items – including a fully charged battery, all original accessories, chargers and packaging (if you have it) and the store will do the rest.
