DROP OFF PROCEDURES - TWO OPTIONS:

EXPRESS DROP OFF or SCHEDULED DROP OFF

EXPRESS DROP OFF

WHEN IS EXPRESS DROP OFF?  Stop anytime TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM OR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM;  Contact Us to let us know you would like to use Express Drop Off.  We will cancel your previously scheduled drop off time, if you had one.

HOW DOES EXPRESS DROP OFF WORK?  ● Deliver tagged items to the 4-H Building anytime between TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19:  4:00 PM - 9:00 PM OR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.   ALL 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 Consignor Check-In form, you are free to go!  One of our Quality Control Volunteers will inspect your items prior to placing them on the selling floor. Anything found during Quality Control that does not meet Later Gator’s Sale Standards* will be donated

NEW FEE AS OF JUNE 2017:   We know that most of you have the best intentions and sometimes miss a stain or hole.  Unfortunately, at previous sales, we have received too many items from a number of sellers that do not meet our sale standards (stained/damaged clothing, toys that are dirty/missing batteries, clothing damaged due to improper use of tagging gun).    Due to time lost sorting & inspecting items that do not follow our quality requirements,  we have had to implement a policy to address these concerns.   We will allow every seller 15 "grace items".   After 15 items we will charge a $0.25, per item fee for unacceptable items that we receive. This will be deducted from your seller check.   Please review the guidelines for selling.    We apologize for having to implement this policy but due to the limited amount of time to prep the selling floor we find that it has become necessary. 

* Review our Accepted/Unaccepted items list.

EXPRESS DROP OFF QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

WHAT WOULD CAUSE MY ITEMS NOT TO BE PLACED ON THE SELLING FLOOR AFTER INSPECTION?  Items did not meet our quality standards.   Items from our Unaccepted Item list were found in your sale items.

WHY CAN'T I GET MY REJECTED ITEMS BACK? ● We do not have storage space available to store items that do not meet our sale standards.

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 Express Items that did not pass our inspection.  You can pick the tags up after the sale ends during Seller Pick Up (see below for times). ● Items donated during Quality Control Inspections will appear in your “unsold items” list online.

HOW LONG WILL MY DROP OFF TAKE?  Each appointment is 45 minutes long.  You need to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled drop off time to allow time to unload items from your vehicle.

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 use our Express Drop Off. 


SELLER PICK UP PROCEDURES - no appointment necessary   RETURNING SELLERS:  NOTE NEW PICK UP DAYS!!!!

FALL 2017 SELLER PICK UP TIMES:  Please allow about 30 minutes to pick up your items.

  • Saturday, September 23, 2017 - from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Sunday, September 24, 2017  - Noon - 1:00 PM

Our volunteers will do their best to have your items sorted for you.   During pick up one of our sale volunteers will escort you to your unsold items & assist you in taking them to your vehicle.  You are more than welcome to take home hangers from sold items to use at our next sale event!  (Note: you will probably not be taking home your own 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. 
  2. Any items not picked up during the designated pick up time will be donated to our charity, The Arc of Bismarck.
  3. Sorry, with the magnitude of our sale, we can't make any exceptions. 
  4. Later Gator will not be responsible for missing or damaged items. (See your seller agreement)
