How do I ship my golf clubs?
During the creation process of your trade-in quote, the very last step is to generate the pre-paid shipping documents unless you requested a trade-in kit with the packing material. If your trade-in subtotal is over $150, shipping will be free. If not, a $10 shipping fee will be deducted directly from your trade-in quote.
Here's the procedure on how to ship your clubs with our trade-in kit:
- Start by opening your kit, which contains;
- A cardboard box
- 4 bands of tape (Peel the tape off the paper and use the adhesive side)
- Bubble wrap
- A shipping label and commercial invoice (if applicable; US shipment)
- Prepare your golf club(s) for shipment
- Group your club(s) together
- Wrap them in the bubble wrap to make sure the shafts are protected and tape the wrap tightly
- Protect the head of the clubs by wrapping them in some cellophane wrap or even the headcovers if you have them
- Unfold and secure the box
- Use part of the adhesive bands provided to close the bottom of the box
- Insert your club(s)
- Use the remaining adhesive tape to seal the box
- Stick the pre-printed prepaid return label to the box
- If you have a commercial invoice with it, make sure to tape it on the outside of the box but separately from the label
- If you have a commercial invoice with it, make sure to tape it on the outside of the box but separately from the label
- Drop the box and your local depot or ship center (UPS, FedEx, or Canada Post) depending on which shipping documents were provided with your kit
- Once we receive and inspect your golf clubs at our warehouse, we'll notify you and then we'll issue your Golf Avenue credits into your account
How frequently do club values change and who decides their value?
Our catalog is updated monthly to offer the best trade-in prices on the market!
Prices are based on multiple factors such as year of introduction, demand, popularity and competitor prices.
I have really old golf clubs that show a lot of wear, can I trade them in?
Golf clubs are made to be hit! We understand that after a few years, your club might have a few scratches and show a little bit of wear. We will accept your trade-ins as long as your clubs are free of sky marks, dents, or any other significant flaws and are in good enough condition for resale. If not, we will, unfortunately, have to refuse them.
Golf Avenue may accept, but adjust the trade-in value, for the following golf clubs:
- Iron Sets without a consecutive sequence of 5 irons (including a PW/Pitching wedge) will not qualify for a trade-in as an iron set; instead, the golf clubs will be considered individual irons
- Iron set club heads, shaft material, flex, dexterity, length, and lie need to match in order to be accepted as a whole, otherwise, they will be considered as individual irons.
- Golf clubs with damaged grips will be accepted with a $5 per grip reduction from the trade-in value
- Golf clubs with a damaged shaft will be accepted with a $25 per shaft reduction from the trade-in value
Golf Avenue may accept, but adjust the trade-in quote accordingly, if:
- The trade-in shipped to Golf Avenue is missing one or more of the items listed within the trade-in quote
- The golf club(s) shipped to Golf Avenue differ in model, brand, or otherwise, from the golf clubs listed within the trade-in quote
Can I trade-in clubs that aren’t in the Golf Avenue trade-in database?
If a brand or model is not listed in our catalog, please contact us. We will do our best to find its trade-in value and add it to our trade-in catalog (please note some models cannot be traded in as there might be no demand for them). You may also submit your pictures and details to one of our experts here.
Can I use my Golf Avenue credit on a purchase before my clubs are received and inspected at your warehouse?
With our new unified cart and checkout process, you can get an estimate of what your clubs are worth and the difference to pay if there is one. If there is a leftover balance, it'll be added to your Golf Avenue account for future transactions.
Please note that your Golf Avenue Credit will be applied to your order as soon as your clubs have been received and inspected at our warehouse.
A Refund will be issued to the customer 24-48 business hours after the trade-in is inspected at our warehouse. Once the refund is processed, you will see it directly on the original payment method used to place the order.
Which golf clubs does Golf Avenue accept for trade-in?
Our trade-in database is made up of thousands of golf club models from all top brands: TaylorMade, Titleist, Cobra, Callaway, Ping, Mizuno, Cleveland, Nike, and so many more. As long as the golf club is in our database, and is free of damage that impacts the playability or resale of the golf club, we will accept the trade-in.
To guarantee that our customers are able to purchase quality golf equipment on our site, there are certain instances where Golf Avenue may reject a trade-in, or alter the original quote provided for trade-in; notably when the golf club doesn’t meet the minimum condition requirements.

If you aren’t sure if your club(s) meets our requirements, please submit your pictures and details to one of our Golf Avenue’s dedicated trade-in advisors: [email protected] or 1-(866) 934-1133

Which type of items can I sell or trade-in?

You may include head covers, torque wrench tools, or any other accessories which help with the adjustments or functionality of the club(s). Please note that there's no additional value to these components.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have more questions.
Can I merge or do multiple trade-in invoices to offset the price of clubs in one transaction?
It is possible to trade clubs and purchase some at the same time with our new unified cart checkout but it wouldn't be possible to merge or link multiple invoices to one transaction.
