What can EB&T do for you?
EB&T provides customers with a door-to-door clothing concierge service. Below is our go-to-market plan to explain how we attempt to get you money for unwanted or excess clothing and accessories:
- PICK UPS: During our initial pick up, we like to meet with our new client (that’s you!) to explain our service and answer questions. All ready-to-sell items should be in great condition and in bags prior to arrival. We do not review items or provide a full inventory receipt. We transport all items back to our EB&T headquarters, where we prepare out inventory list to account for all items. All new customers are subject to a one-time $25 initial pick up fee which will be deducted from your first check. You are more than welcome to do a personal inventory list for your records prior to our arrival.
- PRICING: We research the market price for each item and strategize the best way to sell each item for the best value. It’s now down to a science – specific brands and types of apparel sell better online while others are more marketable in-store. It is at EB&T’s discretion to determine how to price and where to sell each item and if an item is not sellable. Clothing and accessories that do not sell well online or on the shelves of partnering resale store will be donated. EB&T will provide a completed tax-deductible donation form with your check at the end of the month.
- MARKETING: For online sales, we create customized, detailed eBay postings with high-resolution images to showcase the features of each item. Afterwards, we let eager shoppers bid up the price of your item to ensure you receive the best offer. For offline transactions, we have weekly office hours and relationships set up with local resale and consignment shops. Each selling platform has a unique buying audience and we’ve near-perfected the algorithm, so sit back and let us do the running and selling.
- START TO FINISH: We traffic all questions from potential buyers and oversee the entire pre & post sales cycle. This includes: picking up and vetting through your treasures to determine the best selling platform, taking pictures and measurements to create detailed eBay postings, transporting clothes to neighboring resale shops or donation drop-offs, answering questions from prospective online buyers, packaging items to ship across the country (and even world!), and finally cutting you a check at the end of the month.
Exhausted from how much work goes into it? Great news: you don’t have to worry about a thing…we do it all for you!
What We Sell
EB&T welcomes all brand-label items as long as they are spot, defect, and odor-free. Women and men’s clothing, coats, exercise wear, perfume, jewelry, handbags, shoes and accessories are among the items we sell, consign, or donate. It is at EB&T’s discretion to determine the best avenue for items, and after doing it for over 8 years, we’ve gotten it down to a science. We leverage historical sales data and competitive pricing to make the final call.
Please remember: out of sight, out of mind. If you have to think twice about giving up an item, please enjoy it for another season. We encourage customers to only hand over items they are 100% ready to part with. Once an item is handed over to EB&T, it’s added to our merchandise database and non-returnable.
Where We Sell
After handling over 18K+ transactions, we’ve learned that eBay isn’t always the best venue to sell everything. We have established strong relationships with local resale shops, consigners, and auction houses that may resell your items; these EB&T partners already know the quality of our inventory and hand-pick items that will sell in their respective shops.
