Drop Off or Self-Ship A Collection
We're located in Batavia IL and accept drop off collections by appointment. If you drop off or self ship a collection there's a few things you should know:
Drop Off a Collection
We're located in Batavia Illinois. If you prefer to drop off your collection, simply place a sell order. Once placed, we'll contact you to set up a time to bring in your items. Please note: Due to processing requirements we do not issue payments at drop off. Please allow 5 business days to process & pay.
For some brands, we pay extra for dropped off collections. Keep reading for details.
Self-Ship a Collection
There's a few reasons you may opt for self-shipping.
- Your collection doesn't qualify for prepaid labels
- You want to insure your shipment (Prepaid labels do not include insurnace.)
If you opt for self-shipping, place your sell order, but don't ship until you hear from us.
What changes when dropping off or self shipping your collection?
If you'd like to drop off or self ship your collection, you must first create a sell order. Follow all the steps outlined on our How This Works page. Instead of us issuing a shipping label, you'll either make a drop off appointment, or ship your collection yourself.
The best change is that for some brands, we offer a Drop-Off/Self-Ship Bonus. All bonuses are described below. Sorry but if your brand is not listed, there is no Drop-Off/Self-Ship Bonus.
