FAQs About Selling Your LEGO®

Do you accept clone brands such as Cobi, Megabloks etc

No. We only accept genuine LEGO® items in good condition. If you are sending us loose LEGO®, any non-LEGO® items we find will be removed and not counted towards your final weight. We strongly recommend you remove any non-LEGO® items before shipping. 

How do I get paid?

When you decide to sell us your items we want to get you paid as quickly as possible! Because of this we offer two payment methods:

  • PayPal
  • Bank Transfer

For sold items we aim to check LEGO® sets within three days of us receiving them and two days for loose LEGO®. Once your items have been checked to make sure they are as described payment will be sent using your preferred payment method. 

How much do you pay per KG?

The rate we pay can change depending on our demand. Check our Sell Your LEGO® form for the current rate.

When will I get paid?

We send payment to your preferred payment method as soon as we have checked your items.

What's the process for selling Loose LEGO®?

It's a really easy five step process! 

  1. Complete the Sell Your LEGO® form
  2. We email you a pre-paid postage label
  3. Package your items well and drop them off at your local Post Office®
  4. Once we receive delivery (usually within two working days after dispatch) we will check your items to make sure everything is as described
  5. After the items have been checked by our team, we'll email you to confirm the price we will pay. If you accept the price, payment will be made by the end of the same day. (If you choose to reject our offer you will have to pay shipping costs to have your items returned. This will be calculated from the weight of what needs to be returned.) 

Please note that during particularly busy periods such as public holidays it may take a little longer to process your LEGO®.

What's the process for selling LEGO® sets?

Also just a 5 step process!

  1. Email us directly at help@brickbin.co.uk with some details, a list and pictures of your sets 
  2. We'll reply ASAP with an offer or follow up questions if we need any additional information 
  3. Package your sets well and post them to us 
  4. Once we receive delivery, we'll email to notify you and begin checking your items (this can take up to three days) 
  5. After the items have been checked by our team, we'll email you to notifying you that we are happy with what we received (or if there are any issues that need to be addressed) and payment will be sent the same day!

Please note that we may not cover the cost of postage to us if you are selling sets. This is dependent on what items and how much you have to sell. Please check with us beforehand. 

Why don't you offer a free postage label for selling LEGO® sets?

Unfortunately due to the various sizes and weights of selling LEGO® sets it becomes very difficult for us to estimate how many boxes and shipping labels will be required and would impact the prices we would be able to offer. This is why in most cases we find it best to let you pick and choose you own courier for delivery. 

If you are looking to sell some LEGO® sets we recommend checking courier comparison sites such as parcel2go.com. Booking the consignment through them can be considerably cheaper than booking through the courier directly. You also have the choice of having the package collected directly from your home or dropping it off at a local ParcelShop.

I'm local, can I drop my items off myself?

We're really sorry but we are not optimised for loose LEGO® to be dropped off personally. Please use our free shipping service to send in loose LEGO®.

For sets, collections or other items again, we recommend shipping the items in, however in rare occurrences we may accept local drop off. 

I'm not happy with the final value of my loose LEGO® how do I get it back?

If you are unhappy with the final value of your loose LEGO® due to us having to remove non-LEGO® items or you have simply changed your mind we will return everything you sent to us. You will be required to pay return shipping which is calculated from the total weight of everything that need to be returned. 

Do you have any additional questions?

Please let us know if you have any other questions not listed here or if you require any clarification by contacting us at help@brickbin.co.uk. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.
