Frequently Asked Questions            ❔❔❔   👀



What Can I Sell?


We will buy just about all game systems and video games, no matter how old. We also take Amiibos, controllers, extra cords and many kinds of peripherals. We do require a certain level of quality with these items though, and as such we will not buy broken systems, broken controllers or severely damaged games.

*NOTE: As of Winter 2017, we have stopped purchasing Skylanders and Disney Infinity toys.

** NOTICE **
For the duration of 2019, Chumleighs (Peterborough) will no longer be purchasing regular DVD movies. We have far too many in stock right now. We will continue to look at purchasing the following type of DVDs:
-Walt Disney, Marvel movies
- classic films (released prior to 1980)
-movies released within the last year
-TV shows and Blu-Rays

We will revisit this temporary policy change in January of 2020. We regret any inconvenience this may cause to our customers.

CDS - ✔️
Bring us your music and we will always be happy to take a look.

We DO NOT buy laptops, cell phones/smartphones, android boxes, bluetooth speakers, musical instruments/guitars, pirated/burned discs, stereos, power tools or gold/silver/jewelry.

Do You Do Buyback?

Chumleighs is not a licensed pawn shop so we do not offer buyback on your goods. Additionally, we do not offer loans, and we do not cash cheques. * This is only a joke.

What Do I Need In Order to Sell?

In order to sell your stuff to us, we require a piece of photo ID. If you do not have ID because you are underage, have lost your wallet, or any other reason, you can bring along someone who does have ID. Driver's license, (photo) health card, provincial photo ID and current student cards are all valid identification.

In accordance with local Police regulations, we are required to see photo identification each and every time someone sells to us. We do not log this information in to any kind of computer system or database. We do not use it for marketing purposes nor do we share it with anyone. If you are under the age of 18, we do reserve the right to request parental/guardian approval before a seller wants for what you're selling.

How Long Does Buying / Testing Take?

Most people should expect to wait a few minutes should they come in with a handful of video games or movies - our staff is efficient and understands the value of your time and ours. We aim to keep things moving as quickly as possible but some items do require a bit more attenion.

When it comes to testing systems, it can vary in how long it takes for us to test. An old Gameboy is going to be faster to test than a Playstation 4. On average, it takes roughly 15 - 20 minutes to test consoles (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, etc) and about 10 minutes for testing handhelds (Gameboy, Nintendo DS, PSP, etc).

Extra controllers, cords and additional systems all add extra time into this. If you come and are short on time and/or have additional errands to run, you are welcome to leave your name and phone number and we will contact you once we finish your order.

The same goes for if you come in with a big order of DVDs, CDs or video games! If you come in with several boxes, feel free to leave them for a little while with us.
