Ready to get started? Here are a few questions you might have.
Even if you don’t live in Moab, you can still take advantage of our professional retail environment and passionate, helpful staff to help earn you top dollar for your quality gear. In fact, folks from across the country sell their gear with us, and we mail them a check!
We accept CLEAN, HIGH QUALITY gear and clothing for almost every outdoor activity including climbing, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, rafting, road and mountain biking, backcountry & Nordic skiingmotocross, camp cooking, sleeping bags and pads, footwear, and clothing. 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. So forget the hassle of photographing, advertising, communicating with buyers who might not show up, haggling over prices, and sketchy buyer meet-ups, and let us do the work for you! 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…
– Freshly laundered (clothing and sleeping bags)
DROP IT OFF – Items can be dropped off anytime the store is open. Here’s what happens at that time:
– 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:
– Each time one of your items sells, we’ll add your earnings to your account
– Stop by our store during business hours or call or email to request a check for your earnings OR sign up for our automatic payment plan and we’ll mail you a check for all balances over $50 on the 1st of each month!
– Get a 10% bonus for spending your balance in the store!
Selling is simple. Just call us to make sure a buyer is available, then bring your clean, high-quality gear and clothing to the store. Together we’ll determine a selling price and make you a cash offer. Accept our offer and we’ll write you a check – or spend the total in store and get an additional 10% in credit! Don’t forget to bring a legal ID and be ready to give a fingerprint – it’s state law.
