 I have had excellent customer service from this website. Once I accidently sent the wrong books to them and they offered to buy the books received or they would have sent them back to me at their cost. My mistake and they were nice enough to make it better for me. I have had no trouble from them and will always send my books to textbookmaniac.com!

 I have been selling books to TBM since February, 2014, on a weekly basis. I have had very few problems; most, we have been able to work out. In this business, that is saying a lot. They are one of my most dependable book buying sites and they are pretty easy to work with. I will continue to do business with them.
