Turn your photographic equipment into cash

Selling your photography gear to Lens Lab is easy. We don't force you to spend your money on our website like most retailers do. The service is a secure and fast way to turn your old gear into cash. We buy almost any photographic equipment.

The process is easy. Use the form to tell us about the equipment you want to sell. We will quote you a price based on your description. To avoid any upset we encourage you to be as honest as possible. For example, you should consider scratches and scuffs to materially effect the value of the goods even if they are in perfect working order. Similarly, we need to know if the stock is covered under a European warranty. Grey import cameras are significantly cheaper because of the difficulty getting them serviced by the manufacturer etc.

We will aim to give you the best price available. If you have a quote from another retailer please let us know and we will try and beat it. If you are happy with the price we quote you, we will send a courier to collect. After we inspect the goods we send you a cheque in the post or credit your account directly. It's that simple.

If you don't like our price we will also offer you to list the goods on our website for free.




Equipment selling FAQs

If I dont like the price you offer and I dont want it listed on the Lens Lab website?

We send your camera back fully insured at our cost.

What if my equipment is damaged in transit?

It is your responsibility to make sure that your equipment is delivered safely. You should pack your gear sensibly for transit. We cannot take responsibility for equipment that is damaged in transit.

How long does it take to sell equipment when an agreement has been made?

It usually takes about 2 days.

How long is our offer open for?

When we give you an estimate for a piece of equipment it is valid for 48 hours, if you get back to us after that time we are likely to offer the same price but we may need to adjust our offer.

Grey import?

If you have asked Lens Lab to quote for your items, please tell us if your item is a grey import. This will effect the price we can quote you.

What if the goods are not described accurately?

If you fail to tell us something material about the equipment that only becomes apparent to us when we inspect it, we may adjust our final price accordingly. For example if there is a large scratch, a dent, something is missing etc. You should also tell us if you know that the stock is grey stock, this will significantly effect the price we are able to offer you. If you are not happy with the adjustment, you can chose to list it on our site or have it returned at your own cost.
