Secondhand Textbook Information

Selling your used VUW textbooks? Check out our buyback list each trimester and bring your books into us before the start of each trimester and for the first week of classes. All titles on the list can be sold back at either the Kelburn or Pipitea stores. Be sure to check the ISBN of your textbook against our list. We only buyback current prescribed VUW texts. Books are bought back on a book-by-book basis as we will only buy copies that are in good condition. We may take titles off our buyback list without notice.

Our usual second hand purchase price is 40% of the RRP. We pay you by crediting your eftpos or credit card so the money shows in your account overnight.

Want to buy second hand VUW textbooks? We usually sell 2nd hand texts at 30% less than our new texts so they are a great way to make your textbook dollar go further. We only buy back books that fit our criteria for good second hand condition but keep in mind that they may have some highlighting or other marking in them and don't all look as mint as a new copy. They sell like hot cakes too so be in fast. Look for the yellow and black used sticker on the spine. You’ll find them shelved by subject with the new ones.

Because demand for second hand texts is so great it’s hard for us to keep them in stock. For this reason they are not all available to order online. You will need to come into your campus bookshop for the full range.
