Here's What Happens when Games & Consoles Come into DKOldies

Posted by Karin on Oct. 7th, 2022

Each and every day, we receive hundreds of orders that we have to pick, pack, and ship. Our new games and systems go through a process that we like to call their "life cycle” here at DKOldies. Starting from intake all the way up to sealing the package, watch how we take care of our games and systems by following Joey through these items’ life cycles!

It all starts in our intake team where games and many other items are evaluated - all purchased by our Sell Your Games department! Our experts are trained to spot fakes and any issues with products moving through.

Once everything has been checked by Sell Your Games, they’ll slide down to our Testing Department where games, consoles, and other accessories are tested to make sure that they’re working properly. Any issues at all - like dead batteries, ruined chips/internals, or scratched discs - are found here and fixed. Any unsalvageable games and consoles are buried in our graveyard ⚰️ RIP

Next, once we're sure everything is working correctly, we bring it on over to our Cleaning Department. Here we use a variety of cleaning products and tools to remove any marker, dirt or debris that may still be hanging on.

Once the games and systems are cleaned to our satisfaction, they’ll go on a cart and roll over to our Inventory Department. Here, we go into the backend of our system and increase the quantity. Now that they’re in stock and on our website, we’ll add them to our shelves where they await their new forever home.

It often doesn't take long for our products to get adopted into their new family. Once we get the items to our Shipping Department, we’ll once again go over each game, console, and accessory to ensure everything is in tip top shape prior to packing the order. We’ll grab a box, package the order along with its packing slip, and seal it up securely for transit.

Finally, the package makes it to our bin to get picked up by our delivery drivers to make its final trip to its new home.
