Private Firearm Brokerage & Firearm Transfers
Firearm Storage - $95 per Firearm per Year
The storage fee covers the booking in and booking out of the firearm once only. It allows the firearm to be held by QGE from 1 day to up to 12 months. It is a flat rate fee and we do not offer discounts for multiple firearms. Firearms brought in for storage must be complete i.e. with the bolt and magazine. Please note that we have a separate storage facility and may require at least 48 hours’ notice before the collection of storage firearms. All firearms stored with Queensland Gun Exchange are stored in a humidity controlled environment and are periodically maintained to preserve the condition of the firearm. The customer will be responsible for collecting or renewing storage at the end of the storage period of the firearm or it will be sold to recoup fees after a 3 month grace period. Please ensure that you keep us up to date with your contact details whilst your firearms are in storage. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the safe keeping of your items, in no event will Queensland Gun Exchange be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, including the result of flooding or fire, to stored items.
QLD Storage Disposals
Effective as of 16/09/2020 and applicable to any new storage from this date onwards:
To collect your firearm/s from storage, we will require a Dealer Release Letter or a Permit to Acquire. A Dealer Release Letter can be obtained (at no charge) by making a request via email to Weapons Licencing Branch. This letter ensures that you have authority from the Weapons Branch to acquire the firearm(s) from safe keeping.
Police Station Collection Fee - $100*
QGE can arrange the collection of firearms which are being held by QLD Police. Additional storage or transfer fees will apply depending on what is required to happen with the firearms. The $100 fee covers collection from a police station within a 15km radius from our store. If collection is not within a reasonable distance from QGE the fee will be calculated on a case by case basis. Collections will require the owner to provide QGE with a letter of authority and a copy of the property receipt or seizure notice.

This service includes professional scope fitting and laser bore sighting of your long arm. QGE’s expert staff use quality tools and equipment to make sure the job is accurate.

Please note sometimes it is not possible to offer this service for firearms being shipped out of the store.
