A Secondhand Dealer license is required of any person or company whose regular business includes buying and selling secondhand goods of any kind, including valuable metal or coins, and tangible personal properties-including previously owned, used, rented, or leased items.
Exempt from this requirement is any person dealing in secondhand motor vehicles (or parts), nor any person trading goods and merchandise as part or full payment for new goods and merchandise. Also exempt is any person buying or selling wholesale scrap iron, used metal, or dismantled motor vehicles.
Guidance relating to Secondhand Dealer is contained in the Maplewood City Code, Chapter 14, Article XII, Division 3. All license holders are required to be familiar with the provisions of this chapter and with applicable Minnesota Statutes and federal regulations.
