When I Consign A Piece, Do I Tell You What Price To Sell It For? We will work to arrive a favorable sales price, but may decline to receive some items if we think the expected price is too high for the resale market. We set prices based on our knowledge of the market value.
Are There Any Omit Fees? Alabama Furniture charges a $1 per item, or a $5 minimum, processing fee to inventory/ tag/display each item. This is deducted from the consignor's first check or added to the pick-up charge provided the consignor used our pick-up service.
When do I get paid? Checks are available the 15th of the month following the sale. A month's sales are calucated from the 15th to the 15th of the following month. Ex: If an item sells August 16th, then the check would be available September 15th.
