Good question! Here are some pros and cons. Generally speaking, consignment is only an option for the very high end bikes where the used value is is in excess of 3 or $4,000.00. Goodbye Cycle prefers to buy your bike outright and simplify the process. This makes it easier for you and you get paid faster.
Many times we sell our bikes in pieces so a consignment arrangement is a little more complex since we do not have the option of returning the bike if it does not sell for a specified reserve. However this can be a real advantage since generally your bike is worth more as a sum of it’s parts than it would be as a complete unit.
The short answer… if you are wondering what is better for you, call us to discuss. We are friendly and flexible. We are here for you. We are happy to work out the best way for you to sell your bike. We want you to be happy! And the surest way to make you happy is to make room for the new bike you are dreaming of as fast as possible… we get it!
