While the book industry has seen major changes with the growth of eBooks, we still see strong demand for quality loads and lots of used hardcover and paperback books, including children’s books. Our customers who are predominantly online book retailers are always interested in quality loads that do not contain magazines, encyclopaedias, damaged books, multimedia (old CDs and DVDs), and books that are volumes in a series. In general, we do not buy or sell books that have already been scanned for online sale.
Contact us today for more information on our wholesale used books and how you can incorporate them into your business.
For our suppliers who can produce these types of loads, we have been able to make regular and long term commitments. This graded type of used book load means that we can maximize the value to our suppliers by ensuring our customers receive higher quality goods for resale.
To ensure the highest weight possible on book loads we encourage suppliers to stack the books neatly and to package books in gaylords on pallets. Books have a minimum target weight of 40,000 pounds.
We are seeing a strong demand for quality loads of hardcover and paperback used books, with particular demand for children’s books. Thanks to our strong network and business exchanges, we can safely say that, in spite of a shift towards eBooks in the publishing industry, it doesn’t appear that this demand has decreased the desire among consumers for recycled materials.
We thrive in the area of connecting buyers and suppliers of quality used materials that now have a renewed purpose. Used books are most definitely an area of demand.
