What are second hand uniforms or items worth?

Browse the School Uniform Trading website to see what other similar items are selling for. 

Be honest about the quality of the item, even if it means revealing that there is a stain or fault with the item.

PLEASE DO NOT LIST ITEMS OF CLOTHING THAT HAVE HOLES IN THEM OR ARE TORN

How is the money transacted between the Buyer and Seller?

The buyer and seller mutually agree on a price and how the transaction/trade will take place – You can take cash on collection at an agreed location, if you feel comfortable in doing so, such as before or after school pick up, the sports club, on campus etc or a bank transfer. Whatever is the safest, easiest, and most convenient to both parties.

School Uniform Trading does not get involved with the transaction, it only provides the platform for the sale.
