  • Keep the original boxes
  • This protects your goods and adds resale (and part-exchange) value.
  • Use screen protectors on your LCD screen
  • This will help keep your LCD screen clean and free from marks and scratches.
  • Keep your kit stored in a bag
  • This will help prevent all those little knocks and scrapes.
  • Use caps on bodies and lenses
  • This protects your sensor and lens glass from unwanted scratches.
  • Make it weather resistant
  • Use camera housings if you shoot outdoors regularly to keep the rain and grit away.

What our customers say ...

Customer Reviews

I was given a very reasonable quote for a part-exchange. I was contacted and told that some of my lenses were worth more than originally thought. Very honest and much appreciated - never yet had a bad experience with the service.

Customer Reviews

The used Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 lens I bought was very well packaged and in far better cosmetic condition than I imagined. This is my third purchase from Wex in recent years and, based on my experiences, I am happy to recommend them.

- V. Ellis Customer Reviews
Customer Reviews

The prices offered were very fair and the money was credited to my account quickly. The goods were delivered on time next day so I was only without a camera for three days. Overall, fantastic service.
