CONSIGNMENT SALES SERVICE

Program

VirtualGrenadier welcomes the opportunity to offer your fine original militaria items on a consignment basis to a broad base of international collectors. As single-point-of-contact for marketing your collectibles, we are responsible for making attractive photographs, writing accurate descriptions, posting quality web content, shipping merchandise and remitting the final payment to you, the consignor. VirtualGrenadier also offers estate and insurance appraisal services.

Reputation & Ownership

VirtualGrenadier is a well-respected source of original only militaria. The site has an enviable track record of success by serving buyers and sellers alike and is highly regarded in the collector community. Since 2007, VirtualGrenadier has shown annual sales growth and has become a stable and reliable source for discerning collectors. In addition to managing the website, each year VirtualGrenadier attends the larger militaria fairs in both the USA and Europe. The site is solely owned by Michael Davis of Georgia, USA, who has been an avid collector since 1968.

Benefits of Consigning

The cost of consigning using VirtualGrenadier services is much less than other dealer or auction alternatives – plus there is no sales-inhibiting buyer premium. We collaborate with you to determine pricing for each item and discuss qualities that should be emphasized in the listing description. We maintain an extensive client database and potential customers can opt to be automatically emailed when categories in which they have interest are updated. Our flexibility allows us to adapt to each seller’s unique requirements and we are supported by an extensive network of vetting partners with decades of collecting experience. We differentiate ourselves from most other sellers by offering ORIGINALS ONLY!

Quality Operations

We employ a professional approach to all operational aspects, from making quality photographs to writing fact-based descriptions and providing timely, responsive follow-up to all inquiries. Functions such as processing incoming payments, creating receipts, packing securely, shipping promptly and providing sales summaries are managed in a businesslike manner. Payments to consignors are made via company check or bank wire once the buyer has expressed satisfaction with his purchase. Our policy regarding pricing and commissions is one of complete openness and transparency. Please note: the lead time required to list newly consigned items for sale can take anywhere from four to six weeks from date of receipt.

Commissions

There are no up front costs for consigning. The fee for completed sales using VirtualGrenadier Consignment Sales Services may vary depending upon unique requirements but the standard commission rates are:



- Value less than USD $1000:30% of the final sales price
- Value from USD $1000 - $5000:17% of the final sales price
