EXPRESS DROP OFF QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

WHEN IS EXPRESS DROP OFF?  You may use Express Drop Off anytime between 2:00 PM - 9:00 PM WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24.

DO I NEED SCHEDULE A SPECIFIC EXPRESS TIME?  You do NOT need to specify a time, you only need to let us know you are doing Express Drop Off by signing up!  Please log into your seller account, find the "drop off scheduling" and sign up under the Express Drop off spot. 

HOW DOES EXPRESS DROP OFF WORK?  You will pull into the designated drop off area.  One of our check in volunteers will direct you when you arrive.  You will unload your hanging clothes onto our rolling racks FIRST -- so be sure these are the last things you pack in your vehicle! 

Please have your hanging items in order by size AND by item, starting with the smallest size up through the largest sizes!!  (All shirts together & organized by size, all pants together & organized by size, etc.)  This will help speed up our check in process!! 

The rest of your tagged items MUST be in boxes that can close and be stacked.  Large items do not need to be boxed.  Boxes will NOT be returned.  ● Once your items have been unloaded and you’ve signed your Seller Check-In form, you are free to go!  ● Anything found during Quality Control Inspections during Express drop offs that does not meet Later Gator’s Sale Standards* will be donated

WHAT WOULD CAUSE MY ITEMS NOT TO BE PLACED ON THE SELLING FLOOR AFTER INSPECTION?  Items that did not meet our quality standards. (We call these items our "No Thank You Items")  OR Items from our Unaccepted Item list were found in your sale items.

WHAT ARE "NO THANK YOU" ITEMS?    These are items that do not meet our sale standards. We know that most of you have the best intentions and sometimes miss a stain or hole.  We will allow every seller 10 "grace items".   After 10 items we will charge a $0.25, per item fee for "No Thank You" items. This will be deducted from your seller payment.  REVIEW OUR ACCEPTED/UNACCEPTED ITEM LIST

CAN I GET MY "NO THANK YOU ITEMS" BACK?   "No Thank You" items from Express will be donated. 

DO ALL OF MY ITEMS NEED TO BE DESIGNATED “FOR DONATION” IN ORDER TO USE EXPRESS DROP OFF?  No.  Only the items we find that do not meet sale standards will be donated.  

WILL I KNOW WHAT ITEMS WENT TO DONATION AFTER INSPECTION? ● We will pull price tags from the "No Thank You" items.  You can pick the tags up after the sale ends during Seller Pick Up (see below for times). ● The "No Thank You" items  will appear in your “unsold items” list online.

NEW PROCEDURE FOR FALL 2018!!!!   

WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY DROP OFF TIME?   You will pull into the designated drop off area. One of our check in volunteers will direct you when you arrive.  You will unload your hanging clothes onto our rolling racks FIRST -- so be sure these are the last things you pack in your vehicle!

Please have your hanging items in order by size AND by item, starting with the smallest size up through the largest sizes!!  (All shirts together & organized by size, all pants together & organized by size, etc.)  This will help speed up our check in process!! 

NEW: While one of our volunteers inspects your clothing items, you will bring your non-clothing items in & assist our volunteers in placing these on the selling floor.  Once your non-clothing items are placed on the selling floor, you will be free to leave, we will put the clothing out for you.  NOTE:  Even if we are not finished with your clothing before you are done placing your non-clothing items, we will hold the "No Thank You" items for you to take back during seller pick up (unless you choose to donate).  You will need to take your boxes/tubs home with you. 

All non-clothing items will be inspected at a later time.  If we find a "No Thank You" item, it will be pulled from the selling floor & held for you to pick up during Seller Pick Up on Sunday.

Our quality control volunteers will make sure all items meet our quality guidelines, which includes having price tags printed on cardstock from our online tagging system.  Items that do not meet our quality guidelines will be returned to you. 

WHAT ARE "NO THANK YOU" ITEMS?    These are items that do not meet our sale standards. We know that most of you have the best intentions and sometimes miss a stain or hole.  We will allow every seller 10 "grace items".   After 10 items we will charge a $0.25, per item fee for "No Thank You" items. This will be deducted from your seller payment.  REVIEW OUR ACCEPTED/UNACCEPTED ITEM LIST

HOW LONG WILL MY DROP OFF TAKE?  This will depend on how many items you have!  You should plan on about an hour which includes unloading your vehicle & assisting with setting your non-clothing items out on the selling floor.  

CAN I BRING MY CHILDREN WITH ME FOR MY DROP OFF APPOINTMENT?  We (Later Gator owners) are busy mamas with kids ourselves, so we understand that it can be a challenge to get away from the kids!  Your check-in time will be busy with not only you but other sellers dropping off and placing their items on the selling floor.  You will find your drop off to be easier without children.  We do understand if you need to bring the kiddos with you, they will need to stay next to you at ALL times. 

WHAT IF I AM LATE OR MISS MY APPOINTMENT?  Out of fairness to others with scheduled times, it is very important that you arrive on time to your drop off appointment.  Late arrivals may be asked to come back during another open time slot or be treated as an Express Drop Off, with the "No Thank You" items being donated. 


SELLER PICK UP TIME:  SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2018 -  6:00 - 8:00 PM

Please allow about 45 - 60 minutes to pick up your items.  

SELLER PICK UP PROCEDURES  You will be gathering your unsold items from the clothing racks  and from tables.  Our volunteers will do their best to have your items grouped for you, but you may have to look through items to make sure you have all of your own items.  You should plan to bring totes or tubs for your unsold items.  Prior to leaving with your items, you will stop at a check out table where our check out crew will help make sure you have your own items!  We will explain this in more detail in emails and on our Sellers Only Facebook page!

Before you head home, you will be able to take home hangers from sold items to use at our next sale event!  NOTE: Other than the hangers on your unsold clothing, we are not able to guarantee the return of your original hangers!

DID YOU MARK ALL OF YOUR ITEMS FOR DONATION?  No need to return for pick up! 

IMPORTANCE OF PICKING UP YOUR UNSOLD ITEMS

  1. We are unable to store your items after the sale - if you are unable to pick up during the designated times, you may have a friend or family member pick up on your behalf.  Although, it may be easier for you to find your own items. 
  2. Any items not picked up during the designated pick up time will be donated to our charity, The Arc of Bismarck & any other charity selected by Later Gator Sales.  
  3. Later Gator will not be responsible for missing or damaged items. (See your seller agreement)
  4. Sorry, with the magnitude of our sale, we can't make any exceptions.
