We may ask you for additional information regarding conditions of your items or additional photos of items to show that they are functioning and to show serial numbers on the items.

We will be doing cash trade-ins in the form of cash, or e-transfer if requested.

We will give you the funds or store credit when we are satisfied everything is brought in in the condition expected, we may change the value of the trade-in if items are missing or not in the condition that is expected.
