During the lockdown, you can e-mail us your lists and photos of your items to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 416-923-3066 to set up a time for drop off. All trade-ins and quotations are subject to a processing time of up to 24 hours to 72 hours or longer, depending on how busy it is and the amount of items being traded in.
Be sure to have your trade-in items in a box or bin that can be left with us while we process your items. We will attach your name, phone number and e-mail to it. We will contact you when the trade-in/quotation is ready.
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 (limited amount, ask before coming in), e-transfer, or cheque 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.
After all trade-ins are completed, we quarantine the items for a minimum of 6 days before we process them and put them out to sell.
