We get a lot of calls asking if we buy used equipment, and we do. We buy weights and tanks that you no longer need. Usually, the folks who call us don’t know anything about SCUBA. They’re closing out a loved one’s estate, or perhaps they’ve had to give up diving. We are happy to take a look at all your equipment and give you an offer.

We Buy Weights and Tanks :

  • Scuba Weights: Hard weights or soft, we will always consider taking these off your hands. Whatever the reason, we want your used scuba weights!
  • Tanks: If you have tanks gathering dust in your garage or basement, it’s time to put them to good use and we’re interested in buying them from you.

What We Generally Don’t Buy:

While we’re enthusiastic about acquiring used scuba weights and tanks, we generally do not purchase the following items:

  • Jacket BCDs (Buoyancy Control Devices)
  • Wetsuits: As much as we appreciate the importance of a good wetsuit, we’re not currently in the market for used ones.
  • Boots: Your dive boots might have taken you on countless underwater adventures, but we won’t be purchasing them from you.
  • Hoods: While a good hood is crucial for maintaining warmth in colder waters, we don’t buy used hoods.
  • Masks and Snorkels

Why Sell to Us?

At Viking Dives, we understand that parting with your scuba gear is a personal decision. However, selling your used scuba weights and tanks to us comes with several benefits:

  • Earn Extra Cash: Turn your unused gear into extra cash that you can use to upgrade your diving equipment or fund your next diving expedition.
