Selling your Unwanted Items via UsedTwo's Online Auction
A core aspect of our downsizing and relocation service is helping our clients sell their excess, new and used items in UsedTwo's Frederick, MD warehouse. Through UsedTwo's online web-based auction site, we are able to offer our clients’ most unique, collectible and high-quality items to a wider audience.
How it works:
After items are tagged/sorted/packed at your residence for auction, they'll be brought back to the UsedTwo warehouse, researched, inventoried, pictured and posted to the online auction portal. *Note some items may be deemed by the auction team to be non-saleable based on the current market and prior auction sales. These items will not be posted, but sent to donation.
The UsedTwo online auction allows buyers to view, access and bid from the comfort of their home. Auctions are typically launched every two weeks on Friday afternoons and run through Tuesday evenings, giving more time for the audience to build, as well as items to gain buyer's interest and bids. The auction sale and items are marketed through social media, email blasts and SEO keywords to promote higher returns for our clients. Items are picked up the Thursday following auction close from 10am to 6pm, by the "winners".
Clients are entitled to 60% of the proceeds from each item sold. Revenue from each auction is received by SFS throughout each month and processed accordingly. Client commission checks from SFS are sent out the first week of each month with a report detailing the items sold and amount total. A report of items not sold via the UsedTwo auction (if applicable) will be sent along with a donation slip. Depending on the volume of items being processed in the UsedTwo warehouse and/or the duration of your downsizing project, the auction process may take up to 90 days (or more) for completion. All client accounts with SFS must be in good standing for clients to receive commission checks.
