When you bring in an item to sell, it is subject to our “15/30/45” price breakdown schedule. This means that after an item is on the floor for 30 days, the price will drop 15% off the original price… after 45 days on the floor, the item will drop 30% off the original price… after 60 days on the floor, the item will drop to 45% off the original price. The item will sit at 45% off for 15 days… Any items unsold after that period will then be available for pick up for 15 days. Any items not picked up after the 15 day pick up window are then donated to Transition Sports and will no longer be available for pick up.

In the unfortunate circumstance that one or more of your items do not sell, you can pick them up 75-90 days after you dropped them off. The “Pick up Date” on your Item List is 75 days after your drop-off date…you have a 15 day window to pick up your items. On day 91, any items not picked up will expire and become property of Transition Sports.

If you let us know ahead of time, we can make arrangements for custom pick up dates that will be convenient for all parties involved.

No, you cannot pick up any item until we have had at least 75 days to try to sell the item.

Short answer: No, any items not claimed during the 15 day pickup period will become property of Transition sports.

Long Answer: In certain special circumstances (and if you ask very politely) we may allow you to purchase your items back from us after paying a nominal storage fee. Normal charge is $20/month storage fee…may be a higher rate if the item is very large.

Bottom Line: We DO NOT store any items for free.

We mail out consignment checks on every other Friday. If your account has accrued at least $20.00, then you will have a check automatically mailed to your address.

Short answer: A check should be in your mailbox approximately 4 – 19 days after your item sells

Yes, but arrangements must be made ahead of time!!

We are located at 240 Chapel Place in beautiful Avon, CO 81620. See a map HERE.

Most of the items that we take are on a consignment basis only. In certain circumstances, we may offer to buy your items outright. This is normally reserved for new items with tags or items in near perfect condition. Remember, when you ask for cash, we are taking the full risk on selling your used item…you will probably make more on the item if you sell it on consignment.

Gear from the last 5 years seems to be the most popular with our customers.

Short answer: Not really.

Sorry, the fact is that ski and snowboard technology has changed drastically in the last few years and customers are savvy enough to know about these changes …they are shopping for QUALITY used equipment at fair prices. Most customers are looking for items from the reverse-camber era (The past 5 years)…even if you only used it ONE time, a 10 year old snowboard still has 10 year old technology. If you are unsure how old your items are, please feel free to bring them into the shop… we will take a look at any item that you bring in. There are always exceptions to every rule.

Rule of Thumb: If it’s an item that you would consider buying today, we will probably accept it for consignment.

Yes, we are always looking for quality vintage snowboard pieces.
