Frequently Asked Questions

What if I need my whole house cleaned out?

Gulf Coast Trader is a Consignment Concierge.  We can do it all.  We will arrange for everything to be removed and the house to be deep cleaned.

Can you tell me the value of my collectibles even if I'm not selling?

We will perform a comparable market analysis of current and historic auctions, private sales and online offerings to determine the potential value of marketable collectibles. 

I only have a few items for consignment. Will you take them?

With Gulf Coast Trader no job is too small or too big.  We will consign or dispose of just a few items or a whole house full.

Can you help a Realtor preparing a cluttered home for sale?

We serve as a "one-call" coordinator of an entire team of professionals, including stagers, remodelers, movers, home improvement services, non-profit donations, junk removal and cleaning services.

How long does it take?

Small items for consignment can be taken immediately.  Larger items for consignment or donation can be removed within two to three weeks. Usually, we need a month to arrange a whole house clean-out.  

What if my consignment items do not sell?

Large consignment items may be donated or picked up if they have not sold within 45 days.  Small consignment items remain for sale for 120 days.  There is no charge for consigning items that do not sell.
