The equipment works. Where do I get the trade-in value?

Unfortunately until we see the equipment we are unable to give you an exact trade-in value. For an approximate value of your used equipment please call any of our store locations or email us at used@henrys.com.

How can I proceed with trading my gear in?

Trade-Ins are available in-store through any of our retail locations.* Due to strict second-hand good laws within each municipality that require the existing owner to be present at the time of trade, we are unable to accept trade-ins through Henrys.com or via mail.

*Henry's Vancouver location can only accept trade-ins until 6pm each day.
