What’s my gear worth?

aka: Can you value my gear for me?

In some cases we can provide a valuation of your gear – for insurance purposes, or if you are looking to dispose of it. There is a charge for this service which will depend on the number and nature of the items. Please get in touch via our contact form if you want to know more about this service.

However, please don’t get in touch if you are looking for a free valuation so you can sell some stuff. We’re pretty busy and could do without another email about slightly battered Copicat…

If you want us to look at buying your gear then please read our Gear Wanted pages for info on what we need from you.

We’d also generally advise against using the prices you see on our site as a guide for what you might get. Our gear is serviced to the highest standard by very experienced techs, and is then subjected to thorough testing by us. That’s a lot of years’ experience behind our assertion that the item is working as it should, to the best of its potential, and also that it will continue to be reliable. And we back that up with a warranty – because, whatever you may read on the internet, no service is able to guarantee 100% reliability with vintage gear – and amazing after-sales care, including (within certain limits) the right of the buyer to send the thing back if they just don’t like it.


We stand behind our gear with a guarantee of your satisfaction - see the FAQ section above for full details and buy with complete confidence.


When buying more than one item you only pay the shipping on the item with the highest shipping cost. Calculated automatically at checkout.


Get in touch via the contact page. We know & love our gear and we want to ensure you get something that matches your needs (that, and we just like talking gear).
