Great! I want to consign my saddle. What should I do?
Step 1: Fill Out the Application - In order for us to consign your saddle, please fill out our online consignment application to the best of your ability.
Step 2: Receive Authorization to Send Your Saddle - Our staff will review your application and let you know if we have a market for your saddle. You may also call to receive authorization. Any saddle coming in without an authorization may be returned a the owners expense.
Step 3: Once your saddle has been approved, you may send it to:
PO Box 400
53 Windham Road
Pelham, NH 03076
Detailing: The cleaner your saddle is, the faster we can sell it, and a detail will often increase the value of your saddle! We have all of the products and tools necessary, so put us to work making your saddle the best it can be. Detailing your saddle includes:
- A full deep cleaning
- Deep conditioning
- Metal polishing
- Dye where necessary
To have your saddle detailed, please send a check made out to Pelham Saddlery for $30 in the box with your consignment saddle. You may also provide your credit card number on your consignment form or call us with it once the saddle has arrived at our store. If your saddle is very dirty or the leather is stiff and dry, Pelham Saddlery reserves the right to refuse your saddle for consignment unless detailed.
Pricing: You may have an idea of how much you want to get for your saddle, and we would like to know! Some people prefer to take less, and have a saddle sell quickly, while others prefer a possible longer wait, to try to get as much as possible. We always price according to market value but of course want you to be happy with the pricing, as well! If there is a specific amount of money you want to receive from the sale of your saddle, please list it on the form. If you leave this blank, we will assume you would like advice, and will call you to discuss upon receipt of your saddle.
Safety checks:Please note that Pelham Saddlery does check every saddle that is shipped into our store for broken/twisted trees, thinning or cracked billets, loose stitching and other possible defects that would make the saddle unsafe. In the event that your saddle has a problem that can be fixed to make it usable again, we will call you to find out if you would like to have it repaired. If the tree is broken or the saddle is unsafe and cannot be repaired, the saddle will be returned to you at your expense. You are welcome to call or email to receive a repair quote prior to sending your saddle in for consignment.
For inquiries or further questions regarding consignment, send us an e-mail.
