Selling / Buying gear in Florida ?
« on: April 21, 2013, 04:19:40 PM »
Hey,

I just moved to Florida 5 months ago (Naples). I am not aware of any camera store in the vicinity and I was thinking of selling a couple of things (body and lens). Beside ebay, craigslist, could any local advise on places to go to ? (for info I am thinking of selling a canon 50D, canon 70-300L ans buy a canon 70-200 2.8).

Thanks !

Lots NY stores take lenses in trade.  You won't get as much as selling on your own but easier  Also Calumet recently opened a store in florida - not sure where.  Finally there is KEH, again you get whole for your gear, but save the hassle.

A place to consider advertising is with Artie Morris (Birds as Art) - he lists equipment and takes a cut.  not sure what the cut is and if you need have been on a workshop with him.

Jump on Alligator Alley and come to Broward/Dade for better selection. Though Naples probably has a smoking hot market for metal detectors and Bermuda shorts 8)

You will likely get the most by selling on ebay, and very little tradein.  Craigslist falls in the middel.

I live in Central Florida, near Orlando.  I always check prices on ebay and Amazon before I sell anything.  Doing so, I've listed quite a few items on Craigslist and always gotten more than I would have on Ebay, always...

Sometimes I can get Amazon money for an item, sometimes just under... Craigslist has worked out well for me.

With the tourist season ending it's getting very quiet here...I am trying Craigslist for the first time, and might try Amazon too. Id' give up a couple of 100s to avoid the hassle :)

There are people who will sell for you - they take a commission (?typically 20%?) and fees.  They all the work and you get a check

Canon 50D with canon grip, two canon batteries (with French charger) and a little dust on the mirror, and very likely Canon EF 70-300 L.
