Frequently Asked Questions
How does the consignment process work?
Our trained personnel evaluate your furniture to make certain it meets our quality standards. If it does we let you know, based on our experience, what we believe we can sell your item for. After a full month if it has not sold we will begin to mark it down, a month at 25% off and then a month at 50% off the original contract price. In the rare case it still has not sold we will contact you about picking the item up, or we donate it to charity and send you the tax write-off. We split whatever the item sells for 50/50.
When do I get paid?
Checks are mailed out automatically. Check will be received by the middle of the month following the month the item sells. For example checks for items sold in January will be received by the consignor by the middle of February and so on.
Are there items S&E won’t take?
Yes, outlined below are some of the items we will not consign:
• TV and computer armoires.
• Soiled, stained or ripped upholstery.
• Press board or “ready to assemble” furniture.
• Old or outdated styles.
• Pool tables.
• Most lamps, rugs and accessories.
Will S&E pickup my furniture?
