What our customers say ...
I was given a very reasonable quote for a part-exchange. I was contacted and told that some of my lenses were worth more than originally thought. Very honest and much appreciated - never yet had a bad experience with the service.
- J. Woodcock
The used Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 lens I bought was very well packaged and in far better cosmetic condition than I imagined. This is my third purchase from Wex in recent years and, based on my experiences, I am happy to recommend them.
- V. Ellis
The prices offered were very fair and the money was credited to my account quickly. The goods were delivered on time next day so I was only without a camera for three days. Overall, fantastic service.
