GlobalGolf will accept only those golf clubs for trade-in that are listed in the nationally distributed Golf PriceBook. The Golf PriceBook trade-in values are available for reference within the GlobalGolf.com website. Models not listed in the Golf PriceBook will not be accepted for trade-in.
All traded-in clubs must be in playable condition and free of defects or damage including, but not limited to, dents, cracks, punctures, rattles, excessive chrome wear, excessive shaft wear, bent or split shafts, or dings in the sole or excessive scratches on the clubface.
Irons sets must be consecutively numbered irons with the highest lofted club ending in #9 iron, pitching wedge, gap or approach wedge, sand wedge, or lob wedge. Iron sets with missing or damaged clubs are subject to refusal or a reduction of the trade-in value.
If upon inspection the item(s) you trade in does not match the item(s) on your packing slip, the trade-in value will change accordingly, as will any applicable trade-in premium.
When trading in iron sets, all iron sets must include 5,6,7, or 8 sequential irons. At minimum, an iron set must have 5 consecutive pieces including a 6 iron and PW. Iron sets that do not have the minimum 6-PW configuration will not be accepted. All heads, shaft models, flexes, and dexterity must match for an iron set to receive credit.
Any iron set traded in that is a broken set (i.e. missing a 7 iron) is not eligible for credit or any applicable trade-in premium.
GlobalGolf reserves the right to refuse to accept any trade-in item or to reduce the trade-in value for clubs that have been altered or are not factory complete including, but not limited to, adjustments in loft or lie angle, shaft change, weight change, missing ferrule, refinished head, missing or damaged grip, unmatched irons, unmatched shaft flex, modifications that are not consistent with original manufacturer product specifications, or other non-factory alterations.
NOTE: Clubs with the problems indicated above may be refused or we will offer a lower trade-in value.
Trade-In Communications and Procedures
We recommend that you carefully inspect each item prior to shipping it to us. In our experience, certain dents and cracks can be easily overlooked if the club is not carefully examined prior to packing. Please also note and comply with our packing recommendations below to avoid damages in transit.
In the event your traded club does not meet our acceptance criteria, GlobalGolf will complete the following guidelines and procedures:
- We wil contact you by email first and then by telephone, to communicate the issue and offer alternative choices for resolution.
- Resolution choices may include:
- Return of the product to you – you are responsible for return shipping charges.
- Offer a revised trade-in value in the instances where the club complies with the minimum conditions referenced above. If a counter-offer is made, the offer will expire in two (2) business days from the initial communication of the offer. Upon your agreement, if any, to the counter-offer, the trade-in value adjustment amount will then be deducted from the initial trade-in allowance.
- Disposal of the item if the club is a no value item and you agree to its disposal.
- Repair the club if you agree to the price of the repair and authorize us to complete the repair. We will deduct the repair charges from the initial trade-in allowance.
If no response is received from you within five (5) business days of our initial email and telephone call, the item will be returned to you and the value of the trade-in item will be deducted from the initial estimate for your trade-in allowance. Shipping charges for the return of the item to you will be billed to your credit card.
