CONSIGNMENT:

We offer Consignment services for high-end brand saddles at a low rate of 25% (minimum consignment fee of $500). We provide shipping for all incoming saddles (see below). The incoming shipping fee is $75 (this includes full insurance) and will be deducted from your payout once the saddle sells, so no need to pay for shipping up front!

Simply follow these steps to consign your saddle with us:

  1. Complete the form below
  2. We will reply to your request via Email and we will let you know the recommended list price
  3. Electronically sign the Consignment Agreement (link here: https://www.highlinetack.com/consignment-agreement/)
  4. Next, print 2 copies of the shipping labels provided.
  5. Wrap your saddle in bubble wrap (please no styrofoam/packing peanuts) and place your saddle in a box that is approximately 14”x14”x24” up to 18”x18”x24” *Make sure to use a Double-Wall box or reinforce a Single-Wall box with additional cardboard on all sides. Single-Wall boxes with no reinforcement will not be covered by our shipping insurance policy.*
  6. Place one shipping label inside the box and tape the other shipping label on the top of the box.
  7. Drop the saddle off at any UPS store or any UPS access point (CVS, Staples and others – find a location near you here: https://www.ups.com/dropoff/?loc=en_US)

Your saddle will be shipped UPS Ground with full insurance. We will send you an email to confirm its arrival with us.

Your saddle will be detailed/cleaned, photographed and advertised within 1 business day of its arrival.

We will let you know when your saddle is heading off on trial or when it has been purchased.

Finally, we will process your payout through Paypal (no fees will be taken out), by mailed check or you can use the credit towards a saddle order (or refund a previous order). We can also send it to you through a bank transfer directly to your bank account for $10 to cover the bank fees (we just need your routing number and account number).

Please note: Once the saddle has arrived with Highline Tack or Fineline Tack and is listed as a consignment, the saddle can only be transitioned to a Trade-In for an additional $150 fee. However, a saddle that arrives as a Trade-In can be transitioned to a Consignment at no additional cost.
