What Is Consignment?


Consignment is when a shop sells goods for an owner in exchange for a percentage of the total selling price.  The owner of the goods then gets paid via check or store-credit once items sell.  


At Gear Hut, we take the stress out of selling your gently used outdoor gear and apparel by giving Reno's consumers a one-stop shop to peruse for their next adventure.  With the variety of outdoor recreation opportunities in the Reno Tahoe area, Gear Hut maintains a steady flow of adventurers ready to buy your gear.  Rather than dealing with Craigslist hagglers and parking lot meet ups, you can bring your items to Gear Hut, where we work to develop an appropriate price and items are available on our racks for 90 days.

I have stuff to bring in, what's next?

Make sure your items are CLEAN and functional.  No holes, missing parts, etc.  Giving that bike rack a quick wipe down can increase your selling price. Gear Hut DOES NOT TAKE dirty clothing or broken gear.  If you piece is electronic, please include chargers and working batteries.  A list of items that we take can be found HERE.


When you come in, Gear Hut staff will have your fill out a consignor agreement, verify and take a photo of your ID and work with you to develop prices for each item based on its condition, market value, demand, etc. We will email you a link to your consignor portal so you can check on items/prices.  


How do I cash out?

Check on your Consignor Access (online or app) to see if your items have sold.  To request a check for pick up, call (775-219-4612), email or use our FORM.  Allow up to 10 days for processing. Bring photo ID for check pick up during open shop hours.  Mailed checks will incur a $2 convenience fee.

After our 90 day consignment period you are able to pick up any unsold items, however we will keep non-seasonal consignment for 
up to 365 days.  We will contact you if an item needs to be picked up during our seasonal swap-over.
