Please package your games safely and make sure they are well protected to ensure they will not be damaged in transit, we cannot be held responsible for any damage and this could reduce the trade-in price we can offer.

We advise that you use our Free Tracked Service or post your parcel by Recorded delivery and keep the tracking information in a safe place. Alternatively you could get a postal certificate from the post office which is free of charge and insures your package for £30.

Once the games have been received and examined by our trade-in processing team you will receive an email letting you know how much credit you have to spend on the website. You should receive this email within 1 business day of the package arriving at our warehouse.

Save or spend, it’s up to you.
