Trade in your used equipment to buy new at a discount, or buy used to save up to 50-70%!

Recycle your quality used sports equipment at Play It Again Sports. Kids outgrow sports equipment so fast it’s amazing. Much of this gear is still in great condition and has lots of years left in it, which makes that cluttered garage or closet a potential source of income. Cashing in your quality used gear at Play It Again Sports is fast and easy:

  1. Clean out that closet, garage or basement! 
  2. Load up your quality used brand name sports and fitness equipment and bring it to our store. 
  3. Check in with a sales associate to review what you have to sell or trade. 
  4. While you check out the latest arrivals in the store, we will review your items based on condition, brand and our current stock levels. 
  5. Your sales associate will determine the value of your items and either pay you on the spot or you can trade your items towards your purchase that day. 
  6. You walk out of the store with new gear, money in your pocket or both! 

Of course, we sure try, but we can't buy everything.


Time to get organized!
Turn your usable sports gear and bikes into cash or store credit
and bring some order to that garage or closet.

Now buying: Snowboard gear, winter outerwear, surfboards, wetsuits, bicycles (beach cruisers, mountain bikes, hybrids, fixies, road), baseball gloves & bats, golf clubs, lacrosse, rollerblades, skateboards, dive gear, athletic shoes & clothing,  yoga, P90X & workout equipment, free weights and more.

Here's how it works.

 Choice #1. Consignment: We offer your item(s) for sale in our store and we pay you a guaranteed amount after it is sold. This choice pays you most. About double cash value.

Choice #2. Trade: We pay you with store credit for your unwanted sports gear that you sell to us. This typically will be 20-30% more than we pay in cash. You may use the store credit for anything in our store or save it for another day.

Choice #3. Sell: We pay you CASH (a check that is) for your items. This is the least amount paid, but hey, you have money now to take a trip to the mountains or buy that new phone you've wanted.

Choice #4. Donate: Contribute your items for the benefit of community organizations, teams or schools. They get the money and you get the tax benefit and the satisfaction of having helped a worthy cause or group. Click for details.

Or go green--recycle rather than trash. Donate your unwanted gear and we'll get the items back in use, not in the landfill! Items must be in working condition. We'll accept bike donations in any condition--Recycle that bicycle!

    Consignment not available on all items. We buy only quality used equipment, clean and in saleable condition. Purchase is subject to inspection, seasonal conditions, and sport category.
