4. What does it cost to consign my equipment?

  • There is a $2.00 consignment fee that must be purchased for each item that you want to sell.
  • If your equipment sells, we collect a 20% commission on the sale price of the item.​

5. What kind of payment do you accept?

6. How do I know if my equipment has sold?

Pay-out & Pick-up runs from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Saturday. Check back at 6:00 with your consignment tag “customer copy” to see if your equipment has sold. If your item has sold, we will pay-out the value of the equipment less the 20% commission. If your equipment has not sold, our staff will take your consignment tag and return your items to you.

 

7. I missed the pay out time on Saturday and didn’t get back to check for my equipment. What do I do?

Equipment that is left behind on Saturday becomes the property of the Big White Ski Club.

REMEMBER THE PAY-OUT TIME IS 6:00-8:00PM ON SATURDAY, ONLY!
If you cannot attend the Pay-out & Pick-up time, have someone do it for you, but they must have your consignment tag “customer copy”.

If all of your equipment sold, you will be instructed to mail your “customer copy” of the consignment tags in a self-addressed envelope (within 30 days) to:

Unit 144, 9-3151 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, BC V1W 3S9

Unclaimed equipment will be held for 48 hours only!!  Unclaimed cheques will be held for 30 days!

8. What else should I know?

To help maintain security, we DO NOT allow any backpacks, large purses or bulky jackets/ski clothing to be worn into the SWAP. Please leave these items at home! If you insist on bringing these items, you will be asked to leave them at the door. Items left at the door are the sole responsibility of the owner. Our security staff reserves the right to check all items that are leaving the building. You can fully expect security to be doing their jobs, please respect them!

Please Note:

We have numerous security people on site that work hard to ensure that equipment doesn’t go missing, however the Big White Ski Club cannot be held responsible for any lost or stolen equipment.
