Used Gear & Trade-Ins

For Buyers:

1. All Used Items are available in store. When an item is sold it automatically disappears from our website.

2. All Used Gear sales are final. No returns or exchanges once it is taken from the store (if you purchase online and pickup at store, you can inspect the item and if not to your satisfaction we will issue a refund).

3. Free shipping does not apply to Used Gear. We recommend picking up the item at the store so you can inspect your item. Alternatively, call the store for a shipping quote.

Trade-In values will be given by a manager at the store. We can not offer values over the phone or online. You are likely to get more money selling your item(s) at one of our Gear Swaps or privately or online (ie on Kijiji or Ebay). However, you will find doing a trade-in at Boards is convenient and quick. Also, on a trade-in towards a new item, you get the tax (13%) benefit.
