How Consignment Works
Bring Gear to Store
Step 1 is to bring your gear to the store. Start at the front desk. We can help you carry in larger items.
We Sell the Gear
Step 2 is fill out our consignee form and then we sell your gear at our store. We take care of accepting payment from buyer.
You Get a Check
Step 3 is you (and the community) receive a percentage of the sale prices. You can take payment as either a check or store credit.
Selling Price up to $499.99 – Your Commission is 50%
Selling Price $500.00 or more – Your Commission is 60%
Selling price is initially determined by Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. with cooperation and input from the consignor. Gear is presented in the store seasonally. The store displays inventory throughout each season. At the end of the season, items remaining are placed in storage and will be displayed again at the beginning of their appropriate season. Some items are removed and donated to thrift stores at season’s end. Items removed are products shown to be less desirable for various reasons. MER reserves the right to remove these items at season end. However, it is our goal to only accept high quality items with a great chance to sell. If a seller does not wish for their items to be donated to a thrift store, they must be picked up 90 days from the time they were priced.
Returns are accepted within 48 hours of purchase for store credit only. No cash refunds.
All Pedal Station used bike parts are final sale.
MER Consignment Policy
Mountain Equipment Recyclers (MER) staff members decide which items are eligible for consignment. The selling price is determined by MER. The consignment fee structure is 50%-50% up to $499.99. From $500 up it is 60% to consignor.
After you deliver the items, please allow a few days for pricing. You will receive an itemized email from the store after the items are priced. Please contact the store at 719-210-6427 if you have any questions. Email servers sometimes block these emails assuming they are spam, please double-check the junk folder.
If we do not accept some of your items after initial intake, the store will hold them for you to pick up for 7 days. After 7 days, the items will be donated to a thrift store. Items not accepted will not be on your itemized receipt which will prompt you to pick up.
The store displays inventory year-round at the discretion of the MER staff. Clothing will be discounted at 25% after 30 days, 50% after 60 days, and donated to a thrift store after 90 days. Hard good gear will be discounted at the discretion of MER staff.
