Preparing Items for Consignment

  • Check here for brands and items we sell

  • For best chance of selling, bring gear in well before season starts (i.e. bring paddling gear in March/April, bring snow gear in September/October)

  • Must be in very good, gently used condition (or better) and item must be ready to use as-is with no repairs needed

  • Must be clean with no pet hair or stains; sleeping bags and clothing must be freshly laundered with unscented detergents. Batteries must be included where applicable. Vehicle racks must include all parts. If we determine we must perform any repairs or cleaning beyond light dusting, a fee will be charged per item. Fees are as follows: Basic cleaning fee $1 / Off-site cleaning fee $2 / Battery replacement $.50. 

  • Read our policy on bikes before you bring one in

Process In Store

  • Drop off your items any time during regular business hours, no appointment needed

  • Place all items in a bag with your name and phone number on the outside

  • Plan to leave items for us to sort through later, although in some cases we can evaluate items on the spot

  • We'll complete consignment paperwork in the store, but if you'd prefer you can do it in advance here.

Pricing and Profit Sharing

  • We generally price items at 45-55% off the most recent retail price, +/- depending on condition and available inventory. If we discover a previously undisclosed flaw after accepting the item, we may reduce the price immediately without notice.

  • Items are discounted more each month. Seasonal items may be discounted at the end of each season. Off-season items, if accepted, may not begin price reductions until the proper season.

  • GearME reserves the right to discount items during promotional sale periods, or place items on clearance.

  • Once your item sells you will receive a percentage of the sale profit based on the item's original value. 

    • Under $100 MSRP:  45% back, or 55% as store credit

    • $100 to $500 MSRP:  50% back, or 60% store credit

    • $500+ MSRP:  55% back, or 60% store credit

  • You can also elect to donate 50% of the sale price to one of the non-profits on our donation list

  • Checks are available in-store upon request, but sellers must wait for the 3-day return period to pass before picking up a check. Store credit is available at any time. We can mail checks for a $1 processing fee.

End of Consignment

  • Initial consignment period is 3 months, at which point the consignor has 7 days in which to retrieve items. After 7 days, GearME will have discretion to keep the item as store-owned property or donate it. 

  • It is the seller's responsibility to keep track of the time frame and retrieve their item by the appropriate date. The seller will not be contacted at the end of the 3-month consignment period.

  • If you choose to pick up your expired items, please contact us in advance to gather everything before your arrival.
