Our Trade! Process & Policy

Do you have pipes sitting around in your shop that aren't moving? Are the stems of said pipes green from years of sitting in a display case or on a shelf? Do you often find yourself wishing you could just get rid of them in place of fresh product you know you could sell? We've got the answer. We'd like to buy these old pipes of yours, and we'd like to stock your store with pristine inventory.

We'll purchase that old pipe for 52.5% of its market price*. So let's say you've got a pipe that sells for $100. We'll buy it for $52.50, and then that $52.50 becomes your house credit towards future purchases of anything in our catalog. We can even apply the house credit towards an existing invoice. And, of course, you can send us more than one pipe. It doesn't even have to be unsmoked. We'll buy a pipe that's been smoked too, so long as it can be cleaned and isn't in need of operational repair.

Give us a call at (843) 491 4150 or email us at [email protected] and we'll work out the details of a trade with you. In the meantime, here's what you can expect:

    The Process

  • You'll be asked to ship to us, on your dime, the pipes you'd like to trade to our facility
  • We'll evaluate the pipes carefully. This should take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks depending on how many other evaluations we're in the process of conducting and how many pipes you're sending to us.
  • We'll make you an offer. We don't negotiate the values once we've assessed them, unless, of course, we've made a bonehead mistake, which happens from time to time, because we are, after all, only human.
  • Any pipes you'd like sent back to you, we will send back to you, on our dime.
  • Once we're in agreement, we'll apply your trade credit to your account

PLEASE NOTE that we reserve the right to refuse any items for purchase consideration for any reason; examples of which could be poor condition (cracked, broken, excessive alterations, missing pieces, etc). We no longer purchase pipes with ivory.

*We define the market price of a pipe to be the price of a pipe that a customer can be reasonably expected to pay for it, which in some cases may be less than a pipe's MSRP or published retail price.
