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. Once submitted, a member of our inspection team will then evaluate and test your item against our criteria and perform some simple tests. The inspection process combined with the number of accessories you have with your camera will determine the final value of your item, please ensure that all accessories that are included are noted when filling in the trade in form as this will give you a better understanding of the value you can expect to receive.

The final trade-in value will be confirmed with you before we continue any further.

How long is my quote valid for?

You can walk into a store without an appointment, and they can value your items for you and complete your new purchase. Please note our stores will not be able to trade in for cash at this time but they can send your equipment away to our inspection team who can evaluate your equipment for you and get in touch with you via email to complete your transaction.

See https://www.jessops.com/store-finder for your local store.

What do I need to take with me?

Please take your trade-in items – including a fully charged battery (if applicable), all original accessories, chargers and packaging (if you have it), a copy of the trade in quote that would have been emailed (or the reference number starting JQ) and the store team will do the rest.

What if my item is rejected after inspection?

If your item isn’t in an accepted condition, we will return this to you, anywhere within the UK, free of charge.

How much is a collection?

Collections are free from anywhere within the UK

I have an item that’s not listed, what should I do?

If you have a DSLR, mirrorless camera, lens, compact or bridge camera that’s not on our list then the chances are we don’t accept it.  However, if you believe that it is an item that should be accepted, then please email [email protected] with the subject line “do you accept (your item) for trade in” and we can get back to you and confirm.

Please note we don’t accept bags, tripods, film cameras or camcorders

Will you price match?

We always aim to have the most competitive trade in prices, however on occasion we recognize that a competitor may offer a higher price.  If you can provide us with a copy of the quote, we can look into this for you and match (and maybe beat!) the price quoted to you.

How do trade in bonuses work?

From time to time we offer promotional trade-in bonuses, these bonuses will be applied to the value of your items after they’ve been evaluated.

Do I get less if I trade in for cash?

Absolutely not, we offer the same price for your item for part exchange or for cash.  However, there are times when a promotional trade-in bonus scheme will only be applicable when trading in to purchase a certain item.

How long does it take to be paid?

When part exchanging the value will be discounted from the new items instantly.

When trading in for cash, once the final value has been agreed and the account details required have been provided the funds should be in your account within a maximum of 5 working days, however this is usually much faster at around 2-3 working days.

Our expert store staff will be able to answer any further questions you have, or you can email your question to [email protected]
