Buying used gear
Buying used gear from the Nordics
The Nordic and Scandinavian AV rental, broadcast and system integration markets stay at the very forefront of technological advancements. Companies are quick to adopt new technology and have very demanding end users. This means a high turnover rate with comparatively new pre-owned gear for sale. The Nordics are in a cool, low humidity climate zone which means that gear is in great condition even after years of outside use. Corrosion is generally a smaller issue here than in many more temperate coastal regions.
The Gearwise team has decades of experience within sales and distribution of professional sound, lighting, video and staging equipment from leading manufacturers. We know the products we sell and can always help you with any questions that you may have. Even more importantly, we know our sellers and can attest to their honesty and professionalism.

Always contact us if you have any questions regarding the condition of an item before purchasing.
Payment & Pricing
All sales are prepayment, all item prices are exclusive of VAT, import duties and shipping cost. VAT is chargeable to all European customers who are not registered for VAT in their own country. VAT is not chargeable to any customer outside EU or to customers within the EU who are registered for VAT in their own country.
Base currency is Swedish Krona [SEK] with the final exchange rate to be determined on the day of invoicing. Prices are subject to availability and change.
We will find the best shipping price and include this in the prepayment invoice, with freight insurance. Let us know if you prefer to ship the item via your own forwarder.
Unless otherwise agreed, payment is by bank transfer into our client escrow account. Upon item reception and approval by the Buyer, we will release the payment to the Sellers account. Prepayment invoices are valid for three banking days. We reserve the right to open the item for other buyers if proof of payment is not presented after this period.
Shipping & Delivery
Upon notification that payment has been received the Seller will ready the item for collection or shipment as soon as possible. All expenses related to delivery of a purchased item will be paid by the Buyer. This includes any shipping cost, freight insurance, import duty or customs fees. Purchased items need to be inspected for shipment damage by the Buyer upon taking delivery. In case of apparent shipping damage the Buyer needs to place a transit damage claim with the forwarder before accepting the goods.
Returns & Warranty
If the item is not in working condition as described in the Seller’s description, or, if the item has been damaged in shipping due to improper packaging by Seller, the Buyer has the right to return the item for repair, replacement or refund by the Seller. In order to be eligible for a return and refund the Buyer needs to contact Gearwise within 72 hours of reception. All shipping costs for the return of an item will be paid by the Buyer unless the item has been damaged due to improper packaging, or if the item is not in working condition as described in the Seller’s description, in which case the cost of the returns shipment shall be covered by the Seller.
