Saddle Consignment Policy
Consignment Saddle Guidelines:
Olson’s Tack Shop offers over 70 years of experience and knowledge to ensure a swift and efficient consigning process. We pride ourselves with a knowledgeable and experienced sales staff, assisting our clients in finding the ideal saddle for horse and rider. Olson’s Tack has a thriving saddle business, selling hundreds of used saddles each year. Consigning your saddle with us will ensure it is seen by as many potential buyers as possible. We provide easy access to try saddles in-store and to take on trial via our website,
www.olsonstack.com, which receives thousands of views each day.
We maintain a database of clients actively seeking a wide range of saddles. When your saddle arrives, we proactively contact those clients who are on the waiting list and advise that a potential match has arrived.
All saddles are inspected and managed by our resident saddle fitter, ensuring that every detail is attended to.
What to do before sending or bringing your saddle in for consignment:
contact us regarding what models of saddles we will accept for consignment. If we feel that your saddle is a model we would be able to sell on consignment you will be required to fill out a consignment contract detailing the consignment process.
If shipping your saddle to us:
Obtain authorization from Courtney or Mike first. This can be done by calling or texting us at 425-454-9453 or by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
What to expect:
A 30% commission on the final sale price covers the cost we incur in detailing, marketing, and advertising your saddle. When your saddle is sold, there is a four week processing period before a check is sent to you. If you are local and would like to opt for a store credit instead of a check being issued the consignment rate is 25%.
A $50 processing fee will be incurred on any saddle removed from consignment within 90 days of intake.
There is a six (6) month limit on saddles left on consignment. Should your saddle fail to sell within six months, you will be contacted to pick up your saddle. Should we be unable to reach you, Olson’s Tack Shop reserves the right to donate the saddle to a local charitable organization.
Seller agrees that consigned items may be, at Olson’s Tack Shop’s discretion, removed from the store by prospective purchasers for demonstration purposes and that some wear and tear may result. Seller agrees that Olson’s Tack will not be responsible for the loss of or damage to the items while on consignment with Olson’s Tack other than for loss resulting from negligence of Olson’s Tack or its employees.
If you have additional questions, please contact us through email, by visiting our store in Bellevue, or by calling or texting 425-454-9453.
