It’s a common question, and we’re happy to answer with a resounding “Yes!” We do buy select used gear. The rules are simple:
- Once you’ve decided to move on to bigger and better things, grab your camera and as many of its accoutrements as possible—cables, manual, even the box (if you still have it).
- The camera must be fully-functioning, and it must include a battery and charger at minimum. There is a loophole, however! If you’ve lost the battery or charger but it’s one that we have in-stock, we can still offer a (reduced) trade-in value.
- Bring everything you could rustle up to a Mike’s Camera near you and meet with one of our experts.
- Any gear that we accept can then be traded in for an agreed upon amount, in the form of either credit towards a purchase at the time of the trade-in or as a Mike’s Camera gift card for a future purchase.
It’s that easy! To make the process even more painless, you’re always welcome to call ahead and make an appointment. Best of all, the gear you’ve loved in the past will find a new home with someone else who can use it in their own photographic journey.
