How much are my organization's books worth?

The amount we pay organizations can vary largely based on multiple factors, including the quality of the books, geographic location, and your organization’s capacity to store large amounts of books.

Generally we can pay the most when books have never been scanned or placed out in front of brick-and-mortar customers or sold through your own e-commerce platforms because much of the valuable material will have already been sold under these circumstances.

We can also pay more if your organization is able to hold a full semi-truck load of books at once, and has the ability to load the truck with a forklift. This saves us massively on transportation costs. When books need to be picked up more frequently with smaller amounts, transportation can be tricky and expensive, especially if your organization doesn’t have a dock or loading equipment. However, even in this case, we would still love to find a solution to save those books from the landfill and give them a new home!
