Exclusive 7 Day Preview

One of our most sought-after benefits, with the Private Car membership you’ll receive exclusive early access to our latest listings of all previously-owned Collectible inventory listed on
Collectibles will be viewable by all customers, but for the first seven days that they are listed, only logged-in Private Car members will be able to purchase them. This gives our Private Car members an opportunity to purchase our rarest and most exclusive collectible trains prior to non-members having this opportunity.

Extended Return Window

Private Car members gain access to an extended 60 day return window, double our standard 30 day return window. This gives you twice as long to make a return should you need to.

Extended Pickup Window

Don’t want to subject your new purchase to the jolts and shakes of shipping? While we do box our trains as best as we can to keep your new purchase safe, some customers choose to pick up their items directly from our headquarters in Buford, Georgia (subject to current operating conditions). Regular customers are required to pick up their orders within 14 days, but Private Car members unlock an extended 30 day customer pickup window.

No Questions Asked Returns

Trainz wants you to be happy with your purchase. If it’s damaged in shipping or isn’t how we described it, contact our customer service team and we’ll do what we can to make it right. If the return is due to a mistake on your part you may be required to pay a restocking fee.
