Is GoodBuy Gear Legit? Your Questions Answered

Wondering if buying and selling with us is too good to be true? GoodBuy Gear is a trusted online children’s consignment store that bridges the gap between affordability and quality, giving us as parents access to the best gear for our little ones, without second guessing.

As parents, we know how frustrating it can be to figure out exactly what you need for your little human. On top of that, kids grow out of their gear quickly, leaving you with a pile of clutter and a hole in your pocket. GoodBuy Gear was born out of a personal pain point. We grew frustrated with the archaic process that existed for buying and selling used kid items, so we did something about it. We’re the leading online marketplace for baby and kid gear recommerce. 

So, is GoodBuy Gear legit and how exactly does it work? 

How Our Buying Process Works

We’re unbiased gear experts. We only sell safe, clean and quality-checked products so families can shop with confidence. In terms of products we sell, we carry all the top brands, always at the best prices. You can find items that are Gently Used, Barely Used, Open Box and Brand New. 

Here’s how it works

  1. Families drop off their items or we pick them up for them. 
  2. We bring them to our warehouse to stage and process. 
  3. We hand inspect every item for cleanliness, safety and functionality.
  4. We photograph each item, recommend pricing and list it on our site. 
  5. Once you purchase an item, we have it delivered straight to your doorstep.

We are serious about providing a trustworthy and safe marketplace. That’s why we offer a stress-free guarantee on all orders. If an item arrives and it is not as described just let us know and we’ll be happy to accept a return within 14-days of purchase. 

How Our Selling Process Works

The process of taking pictures, researching pricing, messaging with strangers, negotiating on price and coordinating a time to meet to exchange money for goods is not only a waste of your valuable time, it’s not always safe.Our selling service removes all that friction by coming straight to your door to pick up your gear. We even negotiate price and list it on our site, so you don’t have to deal with any bargaining or sketchy Facebook Marketplace meetups. 

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Sign Up to Sell: Schedule a pickup or drop-off day at one of our seller locations
  2. We Sell It: We hand inspect the item and list it on our site. We even recommend pricing, take photos and ship your items to their new home, so you don't have to. 
  3. You Get Paid: Once your items sell, you’ll get up to 90% of the sale price in the form of cash or store credit.

What Are Customers Saying? Our GoodBuy Gear Reviews

GoodBuy Gear review from a Denver customer

Yes, buying and selling with us is seriously that easy. But, don’t just take it from us. Here’s a look at what our customers are saying:

"Fabulous resource for parents on a budget. Quick shipping, item just as described (Link New in Box) for a fraction of the price." — Amanda Doskocil 

"What a great idea! Excellent service, fast, and friendly. We’ve bought and sold quality items for much less than new prices. We’ve given great baby and toddler gear new life and avoided landfills. Couldn’t be happier with GoodBuy Gear. We’ll be buying and selling more gently used items for at least a few more years until our little ones grow up." — Alex Parillo 

"I've bought and sold from them multiple times and had great experiences every time. Their prices are more than fair and it's saved us a ton of money over the years to buy gently used products. Everything always came in great shape and we definitely recommend them if you're expecting or have little ones." — Nora Conrad 

"Highly recommend GoodBuy Gear! I have used the site to purchase several "Open Box" items that rarely go on sale in stores (Vista stroller, Keekaroo, Baby Bjorn products). Each item has matched the descriptions provided by GoodBuy Gear and allowed me to splurge more than I would if paying retail!" — Ryann

"Good Buy Gear is one of my most favorite discoveries! As a new parent, it was so helpful finding brand new/open box gear at a fraction of the cost. Not to mention, they have all of the best brands/products at a competitive price. Their website is so user friendly and I love the features like the notifications when something is in stock. Most importantly, they have the best customer service. I've been to the warehouse to have questions answered about strollers. Anytime I've had a question, they quickly respond on their chat feature and go out of their way to help me. Highly recommend them to everyone!" — Nika Pesaran


At GoodBuy Gear, we’re on a mission to make shopping and selling baby and kid gear sustainable for the plant and accessible for parents. We strive to be a parent’s go-to resource to find what they need, when they need it, at a price they want to pay.
