What new camera/lens are you interested in buying?

Every now and then, something new and shiny catches your attention whether that’s an extra lens or an upgrade to your current camera.

With our Trade-In service, your pre-loved photo equipment can make a tidy deposit to your new piece of kit, making everything that little bit more affordable. We accept the majority of DSLR and Mirrorless cameras and lenses and you can trade in at any one of our stores.

In order to make this as easy as possible for you, if you don’t have a store near you, then you can complete this via our online team.


Completing your trade in with Jessops is simple.

1. Fill out the form below and you’ll receive a quote back within 1 working day

2. Either take the quote to your local store or let us know you want to use our online team

3. After inspection your trade in value will be deducted from the price of your new purchase.


What do we trade in?

We accept most DSLR and mirrorless cameras and lenses and selected compact and bridge cameras. Original branded battery grips and flashes are also accepted, as well as select go pros.

Unfortunately, we don’t accept accessories, bags, tripods, drones, film cameras or camcorders for trade in.

Is the quote for my item guaranteed?

All quotes display a maximum value as all items that are submitted for Trade-In are subject to inspection. A member of staff will inspect your item against our criteria and perform some simple tests. The inspection process combined with the number or accessories you have with your camera will determine the final value of your item. This value will be confirmed with you before you continue with your new purchase.

What are your condition criteria?

We have three conditions; Good, Excellent and Mint. A full description of their criteria can be found below. For all items, you will require the following accessories to gain the maximum value; 

For cameras; original battery, charger & neck strap, body cap, eye cup & hot shoe cover, usb & hdmi cables and any software or manuals that came with the camera.

For lenses; front and rear lens caps, lens hoods & soft cases that came supplied with the lens

Can I go straight to store to trade in?

Yes, an instant valuation is available in all of our stores. You can walk into a store without an appointment and they can value your items for you and complete your new purchase. If you have an online quote and you want to complete the Trade-In at store, then just respond to the email and we can check stock of the new item for you ahead of your visit to store.

What do I need to take with me?

Please take your Trade-In items – including a fully charged battery, all original accessories, chargers and packaging (if you have it) and the store will do the rest.

All items should be in good working order and have UK plug.
