Trade-in to upgrade/for customer credit
Perhaps you have your eye on a new piece of equipment or haven't saved quite enough to buy your ideal upgrade? When making a purchase with GAK, you can use the gear you already own as currency towards your new item(s). Follow the same steps as above to receive your valuation and you can use the amount towards your new basket.
