We do not accept golf, team sports, or exercise equipment. We do not accept broken, worn, incomplete, smelly, dirty, or worn out gear.
That’s simple! Selling your gear takes time and energy that you could use to go play outside! Plus, our clean retail space, knowledgeable staff, and large customer base adds up to a higher price for your gear, which means you’ll make as much as you would selling on our own.

We’ll even take your out-of-season items.
Need money now? Sell your gear to us outright – we pay an average of 30% of sale price for clean items in good repair. If you’ve got time to spare, consign your gear to us for the best deal – we’ll pay you 60-80% of our sale price after your gear sells. If your gear doesn’t sell, it’s yours again – no fees!

That’s the easy part! Just clean your gear, drop it off, and get paid when it sells!

  • CLEAN YOUR GEAR – We only accept clean items that are ready-to-sell. That means your gear must be:
    • – In proper working order
    • – Shiny clean – the newer it looks, the more you’ll make. Try a little Armour All!
    • – Great smelling – free of pet hair, smoke smells, Febreeze cover-ups
    • – Clean inside and out – particularly true for footwear – and free of cobwebs, dust, leaves, spiders, etc…

    • – You’ll fill out a consignor agreement (new accounts only)
    • – We’ll agree on a selling price for each item you’re leaving (remember, we’re on the same team here – the more we make, the more you make, but if we price your gear too high to sell, no one makes anything!)
    • – We’ll prepare an email to you listing all the gear you’re consigning and the prices we’ve agreed on
  • GET PAID! – Our vast inventory of consigned gear prohibits us from contacting you each time an item sells. Instead, we’ll set you up with a Moab Gear Trader account! Here’s how it works:

    • – You can check your account at any time at shop.moabgeartrader.com/consignor from your computer or download our app for your smartphone
