We do have policies that make it possible for us to offer trade for store credit for your gently used items.
Please read all the information below. If you have any questions just give us a call we are happy to help and want this to be easy-peasy for all!
*Due to the economic impacts of COVID19 on our business we will only be offering trade in store credit for items ( no cash option ) until we get back on our feet. We are also slowing down on how quickly we go through your items, our current wait time is about 7-10 days.
Stress free scheduling is made easy thanks to Calendly.com
But before booking, please read our policies below.
1. We only accept drop-offs for Resale Trade by APPOINTMENT.
Make your appointment on your smartphone or computer.
2. We will only go through 3 grocery sized brown bags of clothing per drop-off. Please go through your items and discard visibly stained/worn clothing.
**No stuffed trash bags**
3. Your items need to be somewhat organized & laundered/free of animal hair/odor or we will not go through them.
4. Please call us before you bring in large equipment or furniture.
This way we can check to see if it is something we need before you bring it in. #callbeforeyouhaul
**We will not take in excessively dirty, recalled or old (6+ yrs.) products. Not sure if your gear is recalled? head to www.cpsc.gov to check.
If you bring in old/broken/recalled equipment you will be responsible for picking it back up or paying a $5 disposal fee.
5. We kindly ask and appreciate at least 7 days to go through your items for trade.
**We will not go through your items on-the-spot and are letting them sit for a few days due to COVID just to be safe.
6. If you choose to PICK-UP your items vs. selecting for us to DONATE them for you, you will need to pick-up these items timely.
**If we do not hear back from you we will have to eventually donate your items.
