We offer a full suite of sales services to get the best value for your treasures. We look over your items, either in photos or during a free on-site visit, and discuss which items would be in your best interest to sell and which items would bring the biggest return. We photograph and measure the items for sale and then implement our successful local advertising formula. We set up attractive displays, cover the building, staff and insurance costs, meet the buyers and respond to all inquiries until the items are sold. Then we send you a check. Simple!
We market your treasures through weekly sales events at our retail store location in Meadow Vista and 24/7 advertising on appropriate online avenues. We always take our time selling the items in our care to increase your overall estate value. This is often the most lucrative solution for our clients.
The minimum value to open a consignment account with us is $250 of retail resale value.
How Do I Get Started/How It Works
Can I drop off items anytime? Please email photos of your furniture to email@example.com of your furniture. Please show any damage (small items typically are not consigned), or you can ask for an on-site appointment by the same method if there are over 15 pieces.
Who picks up the items?
You arrange your own delivery to our location or we can give you recommendations of movers that you can contract. Deliveries are by appointment Mon. - Thurs.
Who determines pricing?
We make suggestions to get you the best price! In the end though, it is the consumer that determines the price. We factor in supply and demand.
How do I get paid?
Each item has a customer code. Upon checkout, the tag is scanned to record the sale and removed from your inventory.
When do I get paid?
After the contract ends, a check and a breakdown of sales will be sent out typically within 30 days.
How do I know how much the item sold for?
You will receive a detailed notice with a general description of each item sold with your check at the end of the contract.
What happens if it doesn't sell?
We continue to market the items for 4 months, after which, items will be converted to a donation status and become the property of MET unless, picked up before contract ending date by appointment. A 30% commission will be deducted from customer proceeds if picked -up for our efforts and storage. When eventually sold, a portion of the proceeds goes to the Elks Lodge for the El Dorado County foster kids.
What does the commission cover?
It covers the building, staff, storage, insurance, marketing 24/7, display, photography, management of listed items on internet media which includes meeting buyers when store is closed, answering emails and texts, bookkeeping, research etc.. We pull out all thew stops to make sure your items are seen and sold!
What is the commission rate?
50/50 on items over 100.00 and 60/40 (stores favor) on items under 100.00, Under 30.00 no commission. If a credit card was used to purchase the item then the 3% fee would be subtracted from consignor's commission.
What items are not taken?
Small treasures (shelf displayed items), typically, but of course, there are exceptions.
