Starting from January 2017, Rotor DC accepts materials in consignment
We have noticed that more and more ‘conventional’ contractors and entrepreneurs are interested in getting involved in the trade of second hand materials. Even though there are a number of websites that help small businesses and individuals to sell second hand materials, this typically involves a lot of hassle. We propose a one-stop service for the sales of high quality materials at reasonable prices. We accept only useable materials that have been properly demounted and that are complete.
How does it work?
Step 1: Assessment
The owner of the materials mails pictures of the available materials. We make a first assessment of the value of the materials. Most of the time, pictures will suffice. For larger projects, we can organise a site visit. Together with the assessment, we communicate our requirements in terms of conditioning. Typically, we will propose a 50/50 split of the proceeds of the sale.
Step 2: Drop off materials at our warehouse by the owner
After deconstruction and transport to our warehouse by the owner, the materials are inspected and a final assessment is made. A consignment agreement is drafted.
Step 3: Sales
The item is put on sale on our website. The seller can follow the progress of the sale on his/her personal overview. At the end of each month, the proceeds of those items that were sold are transferred to the seller. Items that remain unsold for longer than 2 months are discounted 10% monthly until sold. In some cases a wholesale price for large purchases can be agreed upon beforehand.
