Yes, we do that! Let us know either in your order comments or email us directly after you purchase your items. You can also ship us your boot, plate and any special instructions. We may need further information from you before we drill holes in your boot, so pick up your phone when we call!

Got an idea for something completely custom? Vans, Docs, high heels… we love a challenge. Send us an email and we’ll walk you through what we need to make it happen!


Wheel Regrooving

Are your wheels old? Is it time to get your groove back? Well, pack them up and bring them down, because we can put that spring back into your step!

Gently Loved, Pre-Owned Gear For Sale

What’s that, you say? You want to try those knee pads but you’re not sure if they will do the trick? And you magically happen to be in DC for a conference? You are in luck, because if you visit the store, you can purchase previously loved gear for lovable prices. Sorry, we do NOT sell previously owned gear online and you may not bring it back.

Consignment Policy

Department of Skate will accept certain gear items for consignment resale. Sale price will be based on MSRP, the condition of the item, and at the discretion of Department of Skate. The seller will be entitled to 60% of the sale value and Department of Skate will retain 40% for storage, advertisement, and retail services. Please note that all items must be clean and in good repair. Department of Skate reserves the right to refuse resale.

 The following items may be accepted:
– Skates
– Plates
– Pads in new/like-new/gently-used condition
– Wheels in good condition
– Parts, new or like-new
Helmets will only be accepted if they are in new condition (tags still attached). This is for safety reasons, as we are unable to assess previous use.
Items such as mouthguards will not be accepted.
