Consignment

We are not taking in any bicycles for consignment until September 17th, and we thank you for your understanding.

 

 

Hi! We're stoked you're interested in consigning your bike with us, but there are a few things you should know before you bring it in:

Our Values

We believe in keeping good bikes on the road and in use!  Our consignment program is not intended to maximize profit—for you or us, that's why we do it the hard way. We believe that having fully serviced used bikes available at fair prices is a service to the community, and we earn an honest dollar by doing it.

We accept "Bike Shop Quality" used bicycles, frames, and components for sale on consignment.

    Important Notes:

  • When you first bring your item in for consignment we will evaluate it, determine if it's something we wish to accept, if it requires repairs, and its value.
  • All Mountain Bikes will go through an additional mechanical evaluation
  • CLEAN items in good mechanical condition often get the best value!
  • Sellwood Cycle Repair reserves the right to reject any bicycle.

Per city code, all bicycles must be remain in the shop for at least 14 days after the date of arrival. The seller retains the right to pick up their bicycle at any time after the 14 day period but prior to sale of the bicycle. Listing prices are agreed upon by Sellwood Cycle Repair and the seller.

    We do not list bikes or frames on our website while they are in the hold period. The soonest that bicycles and frames will appear on the site would be at least 14 days after it is accepted.
