Why Consign When I Can Sell The Goods Myself?
Consignment is easy and safe. You will not have to spend money on advertising or stay at home waiting for shoppers to possibly show up. Further, one of the most important things is not having strangers come to your home to view the items. Not to mention our reputation and our ability to display and sell your furniture results in a selling price which is higher than private sale or auction.
White glove means we treat the customer and their merchandise carefully from beginning to end. We do everything we can to ensure that your pieces are cared for as if they were our own! We make sure that we’re capable of taking as many items with us as possible, when we visit the home regarding furniture, and we have someone with us to assist in loading our truck. When transporting furniture, clothing, purses or jewelry, have special moving blankets, carts and dollies, clothing bags. containers or even a lock box to place them in. Our consignors wouldn't be happy if they see us tossing their items into the back of our car. The white-glove treatment goes a long way in building loyalty and trust. We offer furniture pick-up of all consigned items from your home for a nominal fee. Drop-off is available by calling to make an appointment, whereby ensuring a furniture mover is available to assist.
