    Trade in program, what do you guys think?

    What would you guys think of a trade in program. Basically you trade in your amp, speakers, subs, etc for a credit to our store to go against a purchase. Before we get down to the logistics of it we just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in it in the first place. Any input is appreciated!

    hell yes as long as trades are fair and both parties feel comfotable with it. Only issue I would see is assholes who steal ****.

    Sounds like a good idea as long as the trade in price is fair

    So if you did taje trade in's then that means you would proally start having a bunch of used equipment for sale . You could take a little time with each piece you get for trade make sure it works and all then be able to sell it and people would know the stuff is working when they buy it.

    That was the plan, we know people have stuff to trade all of the time. So we figured it would be nice if they could just trade it in with no hassle. We would test it and make sure it works before crediting the account. And then yes resell it. We want the trade in prices we offer to be fair. But they will most likely not be the top trade in value due to handling and things. But it wont be some ridiculous low ball offer or anything.

    How could you offer top trade in value inspect and test the equipment and then resell it at a fair price. Well unless you plan on losing tons of money lol

    Well we are not trying to make more money on this, your actually right we will probably lose money. We really just want to make it easier for people to get the equipment they want. And pass the burden of selling their old equipment to us.

    I think it is a great idea. It helps everybody out. Somebody can get a new piece of gear and another guy with not so much cash can get a good price on a piece of used equipment he knows will work. Good situation for everybody.
