Packaging Guidelines

In order to ensure the safe arrival of your buyback, we've come up with a few common-sense packaging recommendations. These are primarily based on the methods our past customers have successfully used to pack their books.

A little common-sense goes a long way!

  • Don't use a box that's too big.
    There's no reason to send a single book in a giant box with a lot of packaging material. In fact, larger boxes are more often damaged than smaller ones. A box that's 2 feet by 3 feet doesn't work well when you're only sending in a paperback novel.
  • Don't use newspaper as packing material.
    Instead, use bubble wrap or styrofoam. Places such as Staples or your local Post Office have good packing material available.
  • Properly seal your package.
    Make sure you use packing tape, not masking, scotch, or electrical tape.
  • If you have a lot of books, use a sturdy box.
    If you're sending in more than 3 books, make sure to use a heavy duty box. Books are heavy, and shifting can occur during transit.
  • Double check your shipment if you're sending in multiple books.
    It sounds simple, but make sure you're actually sending in all the books listed on your buyback order. We can't pay you for books we don't receive.
