Turn your old gear into cash!!!!!


Sell your unwanted camera gear on Consignment with us.

Mainline Photographics have been offering consignment (commission) sales since opening our first store in 1970. During the 38 years since then we have successfully sold tens of thousands of photographic items. We are always looking for more quality camera gear to sell on your behalf. See our stock wanted list for items that we are after.

If it is more convenient or you live interstate we can arrange for one of our trusted couriers to collect your equipment.

After we have checked the equipment we will then give you a suggested selling price for each item. If you are not happy with our valuation we will arrange for the equipment to be returned to you.

Safe and Secure.

When you sell with us it is safe, secure and you avoid all the traps normally associated with selling privately. No strangers calling to your house, no worrying if the parcel has been lost in the post and no scammers on sites such as eBay who prey on low feedback newbies.

The fine print.

We charge a set 20% commission on items over $500 under this amount we charge 30%. Which if you compare to other stores is very reasonable even compared to ebay if you add up fees and paypal commission!

We pay any charges incurred when someone pays by credit card.
We will also pay the correct amount of GST payable to the Australian Taxation Office.
We will list your equipment on our popular web site.
We will cover the guarantee on your equipment.

We will pay you 14 days after the sale of a single item or in the case of large kits after the last item has been sold.

What we do not accept.

Items in poor condition i.e. mechanically not sound or with fungus, ex professional equipment, trinkets and accessories such as filters, bags, tripods etc…

What are you waiting for? Cash in now, take the hassle out of selling and give us a try.

We are specialists in old Leica cameras rare and collectable to current digital models, deceased estates and any current to one generation back model digital cameras.
