Trade In & Trade Up

Fancy riding the very latest and very best gear - be it snowboard, snowboard bindings, skis, wakeboard, wakeboard bindings or water skis? Do not fancy the hassle of flogging your old kit?  Want to avoid an equipment pile up in your garage? Then look no further! The Absolute Trade-In and Trade-Up Scheme removes all the hassle and all the stress. 

The trade in value we give varies depending on how many season’s old your gear is.  We give 30% cash back on the price you paid for equipment from last season, 20% from 2 seasons ago and 10% for 3 seasons.

How It Works

  • Order your new equipment online in the usual way, then IMMEDIATELY email us quoting your order reference number.  This is especially important during peak season when orders get despatched el rapido!
  • We will  put your order ‘on hold’ and liaise with you about a suitable date for our free of charge 'Courier Swap Out' service, where we deliver your new gear and collect the old at the same time..  
  • If you prefer not to use our 'Courier Swap Out' service, in store swap-outs are no problem - we are just off the M1/M25, 1 mile from the Hemel Snow Centre. Ski & Snowboard Shop Opening Hours Address Sorry we can not do in-store swap outs for water sports equipment.
  • When we receive your old equipment we will refund your card the appropriate amount and inform you by email. 
  • In the unlikely event that we are unable to accept your trade in equipment we will notify you by email. Please do not, therefore, use your new gear until you have heard from us!
