Consignment

If you have valuable items you’d like to sell but aren’t ready for a full estate sale, consigning your items with us is a convenient and profitable option. Below, we outline our streamlined consignment process to give you a clear understanding of how it works.

Step 1: Initial Consultation

The consignment process begins with an initial consultation with our team. During this meeting, either in person or virtually, we’ll discuss the items you’d like to consign and your objectives. We’ll assess the condition and potential market value of your items to determine if consignment is the right option for you.

Step 2: Item Assessment

Once we’ve established that consignment is a suitable choice, our experienced appraisers will thoroughly assess each item you wish to consign. This includes a detailed examination, photography, and documentation of the item’s description, condition, and estimated market value.

Step 3: Consignment Agreement

To protect both parties, we’ll draft a consignment agreement that outlines the terms and conditions of the consignment. This agreement will specify details such as the consignment period, commission rates, insurance coverage, and any other relevant terms.

Step 4: Marketing and Promotion

ESTATE Mom will leverage its extensive marketing expertise to promote your consigned items effectively. We’ll create appealing listings, take professional photographs, and utilize various online and offline channels to attract potential buyers.

Step 5: Sales Management

As your items are listed for sale, ESTATE Mom will manage all aspects of the consignment process. This includes responding to inquiries, negotiating prices, and ensuring a smooth transaction process for buyers. Our team will keep you informed of the progress and any offers received.

Step 6: Sale Completion and Settlement

When an item is sold, ESTATE Mom will handle the transaction, including payment processing, packaging, and shipping if necessary. We will provide you with regular updates on the status of your consigned items.

Step 7: Financial Settlement

At the end of the consignment period, we will provide you with a financial settlement. This will include a breakdown of the items sold, their sale prices, any associated fees or commissions, and your net proceeds. We aim to ensure complete transparency in the financial aspect of the consignment process.

Step 8: Unsold Items

In the event that some items remain unsold at the end of the consignment period, we will discuss your options. You may choose to renew the consignment agreement, retrieve the unsold items, or donate them, as per your preference.
