Better World Books welcomes Antiquarian, Rare, and Collectable (ARC) books. Our team of ARC specialists will properly identify, care for and market these books to ensure their value is maximized and they find their way to happy homes.
To ensure that your books are routed to the ARC Department, please begin by packing this material in boxes containing only ARC material. If you are printing labels from the Partner Portal, select the proper ARC tracking code. If you are shipping both ARC and non-ARC material, you will need to generate the correct number of labels for each tracking code. If you are shipping via freight, please separate and clearly mark each box containing ARC material with the appropriate ARC freight label. Finally, when scheduling your freight shipment, please mention that your shipment contains ARC material. If you do not have an ARC tracking code, please contact us at ReUseFirst@betterworldbooks.com.
Of course. While we welcome ex-library volumes, we ask that library treatments are not removed and that any stamps are placed discreetly in a single location – perhaps on the library's bookplate or title page.
Foreign language books are welcome, especially the Romance languages. Please contact us before sending books in Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew, etc.
As each item's value is determined by a number of different criteria, it is difficult to provide an exhaustive list of what is best sent to our specialists. However, we can provide a list of books which is not categorized at ARC:
Absolutely. The more unusual, the better. Because we sell on multiple marketplaces, we are confident that if there is a buyer out there somewhere, we'll find them!
Please contact your Account Representative if you have ARC-related questions or contact the ARC staff directly at ARC@betterworldbooks.com.
