Bring your old books
Stop sending perfectly good books to landfills. They can get a second life. BooksUnited redistributes and donates all the books after thorough inspection and repairment. Only after we have tried our best to find a new home for them, we consider recycling.

Afterward, every school gets a personalized report with the trajectory of their surplus books.
Turn your books
An average school loses from $3,000 to $10,000 yearly by not taking advantage of their textbook surplus. Let's change it — as soon as your textbooks arrive at our warehouse, we will properly evaluate them and send you a check. No, you don't need to wait till the books are sold. Also, did we say the shipping is always free?

‘BooksUnited was a fast and trustworthy book company that helped us in so many ways! Without the team, we would still have our dead stock sitting in the back of the store! I really enjoyed the customer service. The communication to make all of this happen was tremendous! Thanks again!’

‘Thanks so much for picking up our surplus math books! All went very smoothly with the pick-up; the driver had a lift on his truck which I had forgotten to ask about (since we do not have one here). Your organization handled this transaction with efficiency and professionalism. I will definitely keep your contact information if we need to surplus educational items in the future. Thank you for your help.’
