Make Sure They are in Good Condition

You want to make sure that all your games are in tip-top condition before you sell them, you don’t want to pack them up and post them off only to have to get them sent back because they are too damaged to use. Just play it safe it’s always a good idea to sift through what you are trying to sell and give everything a good clean and a once over to check for anything that could affect its value.

Pack Them Well

So, you have checked through everything and it’s all primed to get packed up but the last thing you want to happen now is for your games to get damaged in transit. Play it safe and pack everything up tightly so it won’t rattle around in the box and run the risk of breaking.

Make Sure Everything is There

When you are checking through the condition of your old games, keep an eye to make sure all the original guides, manuals and other inserts are still in the case with the game.

Genuine/Original Copy

It’s crucial that the games that you are selling are original copies and not pirated or burned discs. Often, it’s easy to check this simply by looking at the disc and the case, if it’s not an original game then the artwork may be discoloured or misaligned or just different.

So, whatever the reason is for selling those unwanted games whether you are saving up for a new release or just to clear some space, following these quick tips can help you achieve your goal in no time.
