Trade, consign or sell your guitar at The Music Zoo. We make it simple to move out of your used gear. Trade up to a newer model, consign for top dollar or sell it to us outright. We do all of the work for you! No matter which option you pick, the process is easy:
Pack Your Item
Get your used gear ready for shipping by packing it securely. Don't have a box? Don't worry, we'll send you all the necessary materials.
Ship It To Us
Once your item is ready, ship it to The Music Zoo. We can even assist by scheduling a pick up or providing you with a prepaid label. Be sure to insure your guitar for full value. If you're local, feel free to come to our Long Island, New York showroom during our normal hours, no need to ship your instrument.
We'll Photograph Your Gear
Once your item arrives, we'll take a series of photographs that make your instrument shine. Well-lit, beautifully photographed instruments are the cornerstone of a great online listing.
We'll List Your Item Online
The Music Zoo maintains an award-winning website and your guitar will get the same exposure we give our own. We'll write a thorough description, and post it to our Pre-Owned Guitar page. It will also be featured on our New Arrivals page and be included in a Newsletter to our entire database of potential buyers. Additionally, all consigned instruments are listed for sale in numerous online selling channels including sites like eBay. We handle the customer service and fulfillment once the item sells.
You Get Paid
Our turn around time on trades is quick. Once we receive your used guitar, the new one will be sent right away. If you prefer to sell your guitar to us outright, we'll cut a check the same day. Or, once a consigned item sells and we finalize the deal, get paid quickly by check or use the funds for store credit, the choice is yours.
