At the Trading Post Northwest we have a lot of our local shoppers that have asked about our Musical Instruments.  Most are looking for a certain instrument, we try to help them find. Others are asking when is a good time to trade or sell their Instrument.  Great questions, yet for us we maintain one of Southwest Portland’s largest Used Musical Instrument departments year round. So the biggest piece of advice we give out is “Don’t sell or trade an instrument that you actively use! Only sell or trade an instrument that is basically just sitting around collecting dust.” Once this happens, anytime of year is a good time to come see us. 🙂

Bringing an item into us for sell or trade? Here are a couple of quick tips to increase its value to us:

  • Get a cloth and dampen it with an alcohol-based cleaner and warm water. Wipe dust off all the surfaces and wipe off any smudges or other marks. I know sounds crazy to have to say, but you would not believe what a little elbow grease can do for a selling or trading price.Gather up all pieces and parts to your instrument.
  • Any tools, Manuals, and Cases will help increase its value to our retail customer.  This means we will also pay you more.
  • Know the brand name, how old it is, and how much you paid for it originally.
  • Last but not least, we are always amazed when people come to the Trading Post and they do not know how much they want for the item… Please know or at least have an idea of how much you want to ask for it. This saves us and you time.

So when that musical instrument seems to have fulfilled it purpose, or you are looking for an instrument yet you do not want to pay full retail. Come on in to the Trading Post Northwest, we are in Newberg, right on HWY 99 its easy to find us and we are easy to deal with.
