The better question is why do you want the hassle of selling your instrument yourself? With auction sites like Ebay, you will end up paying 15% or more in shipping and transaction fees, and you’ll still have to do all the work yourself, not to mention the risk of giving personal info to or meeting strangers. Our fee is only 20%, and we take care of the write-up, photography, listing, advertising, meet-ups and shipping if necessary. We have a 20+ years of experience with evaluating and selling instruments and accessories, and wide reach to customers online and in the real world, let us spread the word for you. All you have to do is drop the instrument off, and wait for a check in the mail.
to the seller
Thank you for considering consigning your instrument with Bellingham Wind Works! We want to help you reach the serious customers that frequent Wind Works. To protect your investment, all instruments brought in are thoroughly inspected and evaluated by our consignment team, and any work needed is noted so that you and the buyer are on the same page. Our consignment team will help you determine a fair selling price according to market conditions and work needed, and whether or not offers will be accepted. You always have the final say in whether or not your instrument sells – we always contact you first before accepting any offers. Your instrument will be displayed in the shop, in our consignment book and on our website and possibly social media, and our sales folks will promote your instrument to interested parties in the shop. We charge a flat 20% consignment fee. If you want to pick your instrument up before it has sold, you are welcome to do so at any time. We do reserve the right to recommend that you not consign an instrument if the cost of repairs needed exceeds the value of the instrument.
to the buyer
We value all of our customers highly, and in order to protect both buyer and seller, all instruments consigned with us are thoroughly inspected and approved by our consignment team before being offered for sale. We do not accept returns or do trial periods on consignments, therefore we suggest that you come in and try out the instrument you are interested in the comfort and privacy of our testing room. All instruments are sold in the condition in which they are consigned, and work needed is noted before the instrument is posted or displayed, so that buyer and seller alike are aware of the condition of the instrument and can decide for themselves who will be responsible for the work necessary. (Most instruments that need work end up being serviced here at Wind Works.) We want everyone to be happy with the deal they get, so please let us know if you see any issues.
