Consignment Guide


We would love to consign your clean, quality Furniture and Home Decor! Calgary Furniture Exchange is the "Smart, Simple, Safe" selling alternative. No more waiting for Buyers to show up or strangers in your home. Let us do the work for you!

Just 3 Easy Steps To Consignment:

  1. PRE-APPROVAL
    Consignment Items require pre-approval and must be in excellent, working condition, from pet-free, smoke-free homes. Please email photos to info@CalgaryFurnitureX.com. We'll review your Item(s) and let you know as soon as possible (usually within 2 days) whether we're able to consign them. Please understand that our Showroom Floor changes daily and we generally do not have storage space for Items that cannot fit onto the Floor immediately.
  2. CONTRACT
    Once approved, we will work with you to set a Beginning Sales Price and will document your Items and our services in a Consignment Contract with you.
  3. DELIVERY
    Your pre-approved Item(s) can be dropped off by appointment. Otherwise we can arrange for them to be picked up in the local Calgary area. We use local delivery companies whose fees generally start at $75.

Let us take care of the rest! Your Items will be uniquely displayed for sale in our Showroom and in our Online Catalogue. We take care of the marketing, advertising, the selling process and offer various services attractive to Buyers: both in-store and online shopping, various payment methods and delivery services, with the goal to sell your consigned Items quickly and at the best market price.
