Cash in Your Clutter: Why Consignment Stores are the Best Place for Your Used Furniture

Cash in Your Clutter: Why Consignment Stores are the Best Place for Your Used Furniture

Are you tired of staring at the same furniture in your home? Does the idea of trying to sell your used furniture fill you with dread? Don’t worry - there's a solution you may not have considered yet: consign it! Consignment stores offer a unique combination of convenience and sustainability, and they're the hottest way to move your gently loved furniture and home decor.  

At Divine Consign, we pride ourselves on our mission to keep furniture out of landfills and extend the life of quality furniture but we also understand that consigning isn’t something everyone is familiar with. That's why we're here to guide you through the process with a comprehensive list of the benefits of consigning your used furniture to a consignment store. 


Convenience: The Ultimate Time-saver  

When you think about selling used furniture, it's natural to feel overwhelmed by all the time and effort that goes into it. With consignment stores however, you can take convenience for granted. You don't have to take photos or answer emails from potential buyers. All you need to do first is to send the store a few photographs of your items for pre-approval and wait for a response. Some store have you send them an email while others have online forms that are quick and easy to fill out.  


A Large Audience of Potential Buyers at Your Fingertips  

Consignment stores already have marketing strategies in place and existing large databases of shoppers. They are excellent at tapping into a wide audience of potential buyers that would otherwise be difficult to reach. They have a steady stream of customers who are actively seeking quality used furniture at a reasonable price. As a result, your furniture will have a higher chance of selling quickly and for a fair price. 


Fair Pricing Guaranteed  

Consignment stores pride themselves on offering fair prices that reflect the value of the item. While selling yourself on Craigslist, eBay and Facebook Meta, you will have to deal with lowball offers but consignment stores want to offer you a hassle-free fair price that is appropriate for the value of your furniture. They already have the knowledge and the research experience on how to price items. The staff will price it appropriately, and since they only make money when it sells, they will have an incentive to price it at an appropriate and marketable rate which is enticing to customers while also making a nice amount for you, the Consignor. 


Attention To Detail is Key, and Consignment Stores Excel in This Area! 

When it comes to selling your furniture, logistics can be a major headache. How will you transport it? Where will you store it? How will you get it to the buyer? Fortunately, when you consign your furniture to a consignment store, they take care of all the logistics for you. They either have an in-house transportation service or, they have reputable small job moving referrals who will come by your home, pick up your items and take them to the store.  


Sustainability: A Necessity For Our Planet!  

Consignment stores offer a sustainable option for getting rid of your furniture. Instead of throwing it away and contributing to the waste stream, consignment stores offer a way to extend the life of your furniture. When you consign your furniture to a consignment store, you're reducing waste and minimizing the impact on the environment. It's a simple and effective way to do your part for the planet.
