About Consignment

HOW DOES IT WORK?



 

WHY CONSIGN MY CYCLING GEAR WITH SHIFT?


We offer a fantastic alternative to Craigslist or eBay for selling your unwanted items.

We become the middle man to eliminate the hassle factor for you – no more frustrations with the “buyer” who doesn’t show up, the “low baller” who isn’t willing to pay a reasonable price or the “scammer” who just wants to scam or otherwise take advantage of you.
We will do extensive research to find pricing on comparable items so we can help you price your items for both quick sale and maximum take.
We certify every item we offer. In the case of bikes, each items goes through a 12 point inspection (see detail description). This provides buyers with confidence that items are in great working order.
We offer alternative methods of payment, including credit cards and Paypal. This expands your buyer base without you incurring merchant set up costs or fees.
We expand your target buying audience by offering your item for sale via our eBay store, website and across multiple cities on Craigslist.


Our 12 point inspection and tune-up includes the following:

Thorough wash of complete bike (extra attention to the drivetrain)
Inspection of frame/components for damage/defects
True wheels
Check tires, rims, and spokes for wear/damage
Adjust cable tension and limit adjustment of front and rear derailleur
Adjust cable tension and spring tension/balance on front and rear break, make sure both are sufficiently installed and tightened (disc brakes may be extra)
Clean and lube gear and break housing (as necessary)
Visual and functional check of front and rear hubs, bottom bracket, and headset bearings (additional labor may be extra)
Tighten headset (as necessary)
Check shifters and brake levers for wear
Measure chain-life
Check torque on all bolts and fasteners (stem/faceplate bolts, seat post collar/clamps, quick release or axle bolts, crank assembly or pinch bolts, chain ring bolts, pedals)
Check and adjust air-suspension pressure (if applicable)

We are looking for the following information for bikes and gear alike:

What are you selling? A bicycle, components, etc.
What is the brand/model?
What year?
What is the condition/mileage?
Tell us about your item. Did you crash? Did you upgrade the components? We want to know!
Clear photos of the item. If you are looking to consign your bicycle, please get clear photos of the drive side and any scuffs, scratches or damage. We can give you our best estimate when you send several clear photos.
