STEP 1: EMAIL US PICTURES
Send an email to email@example.com with a list and photos of your LARGER items (sofas, dining/bedroom sets, area rugs, etc.) so that we can evaluate the condition, and make sure that they are in a style that sells well at our store. Items MUST be clean, free of any rips/tears/stains and from a smoke-free home. Once we have evaluated your items we will contact you to schedule a drop off time. You do NOT need to email photos of smaller items that generally fit in your car. They can be boxed up and brought to the store during your prescheduled appointment!
STEP 2: SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
You MUST preschedule an appointment to drop items off. We accept Drop-Off’s Monday through Friday between 10:30am and 5:30pm. NO WEEKEND DROP OFFS unless an appointment has been pre-arranged. Our Consignor Drop – Off Area is at the side door (at the top of the ramp). Just ring the bell when you arrive. We don’t accept consignment through our front door- please drive straight to the left side of the building and park near the bottom or to the side of the ramp. Our experienced staff will immediately go through your items and they will let you know what we will accept. You are more than welcome to shop around during this time.
STEP 3: DELIVERY AVAILABLE
If you need assistance in getting your items to us we would be more than happy to provide you with the contact information of local movers, please email us or give us a call at (519) 658-6398.
More Details on Consigning
We accept antiques in good shape; however, we are not an antique shop and do not make any claims to knowing the market value of your piece. We price our items based on what we think the buyers will pay. If you have antiques, it is best to get them appraised by an experienced dealer. All large items MUST be pre-approved before scheduling a drop-off. One of our experienced staff will talk with you about what we think will sell, what might not, and discuss the selling price.
Once you decide to consign with Next Time Around you will be given a Consignment Agreement and we will set you up with an account where you will receive 40% of the selling price. You will be given a username and password to login to your account (via our website) where you will be able to see a complete listing of your items, the prices and a running balance. Consigned items will be displayed for up to 80 days in the store.
*Cheques (over $20.00) are issued MONTHLY on the 10th of the month following the month in which your item had sold.
