- Submit Your Request Online: The Home Consignment Center simplifies your experience from the start by offering several ways to submit your items for consignment. Include an accurate description, notes on each item’s condition, and try and include at least one photograph (or multiple views) of the item. You can submit photos of your listings to us via email. Simply check the store location page for contact information. As soon as we receive your message, we will call you to talk about what you have. You can also bring your hard copy photos into one of our store locations, we will take a look and talk to you about your options. Or you can always bring in your items to the store for evaluation as well. There are no appointments necessary. If you have larger items, we will set up a free in home preview appointment with you to evaluate your items. All of this is so that we can ensure we will be able to sell your items on consignment and determine the appropriate sale prices.
- Evaluation: Our team members are experts at evaluating pieces to determine a price that our buyers and consignors will appreciate. HCC consignment specialists receive hundreds of items a day, so they know how to price items accurately. Simply let us know what you have, and we will price it
- Approval and Scheduling: Once items are accepted for consignment, we invite you to bring them to our store at your convenience. If you are unable to do so, we will help arrange transportation through a moving company that offers our clients a special rate. All consignment furniture and items should have pre-approval before being delivered to the Home Consignment Center. Specific policies may differ from store to store, so please contact your local Home Consignment Center for confirmation or more information.
- Showcasing: Once your items have made it to the store, we make the magic happen for you! We will display them prominently in our expansive showroom and do our best to promote and sell your items. The Home Consignment also spends millions every year on advertising and marketing, so your furniture, consignment jewelry, accent, or art always gets the attention it deserves. The median turnaround time for a sale is approximately 14 days.
Pricing Your Consignment Items
Pricing for consignment items varies on the condition, age, current retail prices, brand, style, and market demand on your item. It only helps your consignment if you can tell us how much you originally paid for the item, where it was purchased from, and any other specific information. The Home Consignment Center has an excellent understanding of the resale market and the amounts, historically, our affluent clients are willing to pay. Our experts have developed strategic pricing processes that make valuations fair and profitable for you and will incorporate those ranges in our efforts to price your items correctly. Final pricing is at our discretion, but we do everything we can to ensure your ideal consignment and sales experience and make you one of our loyal customers for life.
Price Markdowns & Negotiations
We will accurately price your items and reach an agreement before putting them on our showroom floor. This eliminates any concerns about haggling with customers and marking down items without your awareness. Pricing is among the most critical elements of consignment, and we are experts. Our team recognizes if items are priced too high, they will not sell. But if they are priced too low, you are leaving money on the table. We will find the sweet spot to ensure you receive the most value out of your consignment experience.
Getting Paid for Your Consignment
When your items sell, we pay you. The sales are fast here, and so are the payouts. As a consignor, you receive 50% of the net proceeds. Net proceeds include proportionate deduction for credit card services. We guarantee you will be paid within 30 days of a sale. It’s that simple.
