Trade-In Your Old Gear & Upgrade

Are you interested in upgrading your current equipment with something new or do you have a lens that you don’t have any use for anymore? No problem, Outdoorphoto has your back, as we offer trade-ins on new equipment purchases. Our trade-in procedure is simple and works in the following way:

Step 1: Contact Us

Contact us with a list of the equipment you wish to trade-in. We can then confirm whether or not we would be able to trade-in the equipment and what estimated value we would be able to offer you on the items. You can either phone or send an e-mail to one of our sales consultants that will get back to you ASAP with values and all other necessary info as well as the documentation we require from you. Values are based on current market conditions in the second-hand market and the condition of the items, thus pricing will vary according to any changes that occur in the market and the perceived condition of the equipment.

Step 2: Inspection & Final Offer

If confirmation is given that we can do a trade-in on your items and that you are happy with the estimated value, then a physical inspection of the items will be required to give a final go-ahead and value. Items are only inspected at our store and if you are unable to bring in the items yourself please ensure that the items are packed securely and safely to avoid any damage that might be caused during shipping. If you have difficulty getting the items to us, we can arrange a courier to collect the items on your behalf. A courier fee will be charged for the collection and delivery of the equipment to our shop.

Step 3: Credit Made Available

After inspection, a confirmed and final value will be given and if accepted the credit will immediately be made available for your planned purchase.

Step 4: Pay the Balance

Get the item you want and simply pay the balance.

Quoted values may vary if:

  • With inspection, the item is found to be in a condition that is different from the initially discussed condition.
  • With inspection, the item is found to be different to the product initially discussed.
  • With inspection, a fault is found that you were not aware of. In such cases, we will either recommend a repair or arrange for the return of the item.

Quality Checks

As soon as we receive pre-owned gear, we run a quality check to ensure that it holds up to the professional standards that you have come to expect from Outdoorphoto. The product images you see on the web are those of the actual products – we take those photos in-house and provide them to you as is.

Quality Ratings

We pride ourselves on the diligence with which we inspect and rate every pre-owned camera or lens and set very high standards for what is acceptable for second-hand sale. All our used gear are in good working condition regardless of the ratings which are to indicate cosmetic appearance and warranty information only.

  • Demo: Brand new or demo unit. It might still carry the manufacturer’s guarantee, in which case we will indicate as such.
  • Excellent: Excellent condition and as good as new.
  • Very good: Glass and functionality 100%. Used and with slight signs of previous usage.
  • Fair: Glass and functionality 100%. Acceptable condition, but has a fair amount of scuff marks and signs of harder work.

Warranties

All used photographic equipment is covered by a 6-month warranty against any defects that we may have missed during our pre-inspection, so you can rest assured that your purchase is safe. Also, if a product’s factory warranty is still valid, it will automatically be carried over to you.
