Trade-in FAQ

TRADE-IN FAQ:​

Our trade-in values are competitively priced and are almost always higher than the competition. The only circumstance in which we may adjust a trade-in value is if a qualified competitor offers a higher value.
OF COURSE! We will buy them as long as they are not too heavily worn, and they are from a big name manufacturer.
Paypal, Venmo, or a check in the mail are offered for online trade-in payouts. If you trade-in at the PAR Trade-in Tent, then you will receive instant credit to the host golf course pro shop.
Yes! The cost of shipping will either be deducted from payment when your clubs are received or will be billed to your account.
PAR offers industry-high trade-in values through our boosted price match guarantee. In addition, Purchase And Resell donates to local charities with each trade-in we receive! Finally, we have PGA Professionals here to answer your calls, emails, concerns, questions, and anything else that we may help with!
Our names are David Bronsteen and Darrell Pilant, and we are the owners of PAR. Like many, our childhoods were filled with unique challenges that shaped us to be the people we are today. While we operate PAR to offer golfers a convenient reselling service and accessible quality golf clubs, it is also a tremendous opportunity to spread awareness and support for the many challenges people take on daily.
We donate to…
  • First Tee Pro Kids
  • PGA Youth On Course
  • PGA Hope
  • Randy Jones Foundation
  • Children’s Organ Transplant Association
  • Autism Society of San Diego
  • Parkinson’s Association of San Diego
  • Cal State San Marcos
You got it! While most of our rates are above the competition, the rare case of a higher value found elsewhere may arise. If so, we will price match/beat our competition to ensure our highest-price guarantee.
PAR has created their own golf club database by surveying competitor pricing, current market trends, and eBay resale values for over 4,000 individual golf clubs!!!
We suggest calling around to local golf shops, as they usually have many lying around. If you strike out there, you can always purchase multiple tube shaped boxes and combine them into one longer one! Check out USPS.com or Fedex.com for more info on ordering boxes.
Generally speaking, we do not purchase clubs that are left off the catalog. However, you can call us at (760) 961-4411, or email info@purchaseandresell.com to double check!
We can either donate the club to charity or we can send it back to you. Shipping is at your expense.
You will be paid within two business days after our final appraisal.
Of course, didn’t you?! This is another reason why we beat the competition! Our staff of PGA and golf industry professionals will be sure to get you the best value possible for the entirety of your trade-in.
Trade-ins are final once we have received AND paid for your items. If you change your mind after shipping them and before being paid, we are happy to mail back your items at your expense for shipping.
PAR is located in North San Diego County.
Just like a car, golf clubs depreciate quite fast. This is due to a constant surplus of new club releases, and decades of available golf clubs. We do understand that our industry-high trade-in values may not be able to satisfy everyone. Because of that, we are happy to guide you through the selling process yourself, to help you get the most value for your golf club! Please call us at (76) 961-4411 if we can help.
