Sell Your Books

Yes, you can sell your books to Book Grocer.

We buy small (200+) book collections as well as larger libraries and deceased estates.  In some situations we can also arrange to collect and pack up your books for you. 

What we will pay for - here are a few points that may help: 
  • we are interested in both fiction and non-fiction in most categories
  • condition should be good to excellent condition (ie no sun damage, creased/cracked spines, markings on pages) 
  • ideally you should have more than 200 books in the collection you wish to sell 
  • unfortunately we cannot take textbooks, newspapers, periodicals, magazines, phone books, almanacs or children's books

    Getting the books to us:  At present we are most likely to be able to make you an offer for your books if you are able to drop the books at our warehouse in Tullamarine.
    If you live in metropolitan Melbourne and have a larger collection we may also be able to collect your books by arrangement. We may also be able to pack up the books for you. 
    Your used books can also be dropped at any Book Grocer store but this must be once we have made an arrangement - so please send us an email first. (You can check our opening hours here.)


    Getting in touch:  Please email us at secondhand@bookgrocer.com if you have books you would like to sell or donate. Please provide your postcode of residence and an indication of the approximate number of books. Please also attach some photographs of the books.

    Please note that we will not offer on-the-spot payment for books that are dropped off without making prior arrangements.
