How consignment works at the Backcountry Pursuit

1. Use your gear and go play! Or, if it's just sitting around getting older by the day, proceed to step two.
2. Decide what you want to sell and then CLEAN IT! This is not your mommy's cleaning service! Clean gear is worth more money.
3. Pile all that gear in the car and bring it in to Backcountry Pursuit.
4. We will agree on a selling price and have you sign a little piece of paper.
5. We'll do our best to sell your gear and get you money!

We run two seasonal consignment periods. A Summer and a Winter. The sooner you bring your gear in on that consignment period, the more days it has to sell. For example, if you have a pair of ski boots to sell and bring them to us on October 1st, they will have about 180 days to sell. If you bring them in on March 1st, they will have about 30 days. Make sense? We don't run a rigid 90 day period like most consignment stores do. It doesn't make sense for the seasonal business we run. We start taking Winter gear in September and Summer gear in February.

We run two sales a year, one at the end of each consignment period. The sale starts at 30% off and ends at 50% off. We'd like you to leave your items through the sale period, but they are eligible for pick up when the sale starts.

We communicate with you!

Many consignment shops leave it up to you to check in to see if your items sold and then remember when to pick them up. We send you emails when your items sell, when the sale starts and what it will look like, as well as a 14 day pick up notification at the end of the consignment period BEFORE your items become property of the store. You'll always know what is going on with your gear at Backcountry Pursuit.

What do we charge for this awesome service?

The more your gear is worth, the less we take and the more ends up in your pocket. Rates are for individual items and not a cumulative total.

Our rates:

$0-$124.99=50% to you via check or 60% as in store credit.
$125.00-$249.99= 60% to you via check or 70% as in store credit.
$250-$499.99= 70% to you via check or 80% as in store credit.
$500-$999.99= 80% to you via check or 90% as in store credit.
$1000.00+= 85% to you via check or 95% as in store credit.

How do you get paid?

Well, let me tell you! Cause that's why you're doing this, right? You have three options. First, you can use your money as in store credit to buy more gear and we'll pay you a full 10% higher than taking a paycheck, and that's a good deal my friends. Not every consignment store offers this. Second, you can pick up a check in person for free after the 1st of month for all gear that sold in the previous month. Third, we can mail you a check for a $1.50 fee. Moving out of the country and need PayPal? We've done that too.

And the single biggest reason to consign with Backcountry Pursuit is that we have TWO locations! You can use your store credit at either place and that opens up a ton of possibilities for awesome new gear. Second, we cover a way larger part of the Treasure Valley and have a much bigger pool of buyers than a business with just one location. More buyers, more gear. We are just bigger and better. The best, actually.

That's it! No hidden fees. No mystery on our website. It's all here for you. Just compare us and you'll see we have the most complete, upfront, and transparent consignment process in the Treasure Valley. See ya soon with tons of great gear!
