Re: trade in

Part ex through ANY dealer will pay very little. You are far better using Ebay for the best results or selling it privately.

For Ebay always list the item well, with good pictures and make sure you set the auction to end at a very good time, weekend evening I think is best but speak with Dave as he is the Ebay expert

Re: trade in

Steve is right - dealers will not be as good as ebay or any other private sale.

However, depending on how quickly you want to sell, going to a dealer such as MPB who advertise on here, will give you a fast deal with no advertising costs or ebay selling fees, and the knowledge that there is no risk of a dodgy payment or time wasters etc. Also you will not have to wait for anyone to answer your ad, so you wont have to hang around.

You can get a quote by phone or e-mail with no obligation, and perhaps do a trade-in deal if they have the camera you want.

Ultimately, it is a decision that only you can make.

Re: trade in

Trading in is pointless. Sell it properly to an enthusiast who really wants it and you'll get more for it! Even if you don't want to sell through Ebay (though i would and have done loads of times with great success) it is the place you should look first to see what other ones are going for so you can set your price appropriately.

When you sell it, make sure you list any extras and make sure you spend a couple of hours giving it all a really good clean so that it looks as smart as possible. Box doesn't matter as long as you package it well when posting. Only prob you'll have is that despite being a decent camera, the Sony is not an enthusiasts favourite and that does tend to hold the price down a bit.

Don't forget that the Classifieds section on Pixalo is usually pretty successful at selling good quality kit. There are over 6000 keen enthusiasts who are members plus loads more who guest browse the site every day.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: trade in

I don't know how popular www.craigslist.org is over there, but here we use it ALOT I've sold many many things locally thru that website, and best of all it's free.
(by the way, craigslist belongs to EBay)
I like it because the transactions can be made locally so there's no shipping and they pick it up personally, therefore you get CASH!
