Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions govern the use of MODERN RESALE’S websites, applications, products and services, as well as any listing for sale of and purchase of any furnishings or décor therein (herein “Services”). By using and accessing the Services, you agree to be bound by and comply with these Terms and Conditions.
For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, the term “Consignor” shall refer to and mean anyone utilizing MODERN RESALE’S services to assist in the listing and selling of any furnishings and/or décor. The term “Buyer” shall refer to and mean anyone purchasing furnishings and/or décor through MODERN RESALE.
If you purchase any items from MODERN RESALE’S retail location, pop up shops or website, you agree to the following:1. Payment
MODERN RESALE accepts major credit cards, and checks (purchased items cannot be picked up or delivered until check has cleared) for the purchase of all items. You agree that MODERN RESALE can charge your credit card automatically at the time of purchase. All prices are in US Dollars only. You further agree that if your charge is later declined or reversed for any reason, you shall be responsible to MODERN RESALE for the full purchase price of the item, along with any fees, interest or other charges incurred by MODERN RESALE in connection with the decline or reversal of the credit card charges. Such payment of the reversed or declined purchase price plus all fees and/or other charges shall be made within ten (10) business days of the written notification by MODERN RESALE of the refusal of the charge, in cash or Cashier’s Check, only, delivered to MODERN RESALE’s retail location.
MODERN RESALE shall not be liable to you if a transaction is not completed due to any limits on the use of your credit card, debit card or electronic funds transfer due to your agreement with your financial institution or by applicable law, or if a financial institution fails to honor any credit or debit purchase.2. Transportation of Purchased Items
The Buyer, or end user, is responsible for any delivery charges after consigned item has been purchased from MODERN RESALE or the item’s location (if not stored or displayed at MODERN RESALE) to the Buyer’s designated delivery location. While a MODERN RESALE representative may recommend a delivery service and furnish an estimate of the charges, the Consignor and Buyer have the option of selecting their own insured and bonded delivery service. MODERN RESALE is not responsible for any damage to consigned items during transit. It is the responsibility of the buyer to carefully inspect all delivered items upon delivery. Any discrepancies in condition of the purchased item must be noted by the delivery team prior to their departure from the delivery site. Should damages occur, MODERN RESALE must be contacted immediately for follow up. MODERN RESALE cannot be held responsible for any item that is damaged in transit if the BUYER has neglected to inspect and notify both the shipper AND MODERN RESALE of said damages. Should a buyer select their own delivery or shipping service, MODERN RESALE cannot be held responsible for any claims that may be filed against the company for damages.
If a buyer arranges pick up of a purchased item(s), the risk of damage transfers to the buyer or the delivery person or service arranged by the buyer as soon as the sold item has been lifted or moved from its original position/location within (or just outside) Modern Resale premises. MODERN RESALE does not have warehouse staff. Appropriate manpower and packaging materials must be provided by the buyer for all pick ups. If a buyer requests the assistance of Modern Resale staff to move or load a sold item, we will do our best accommodate the request. However the risk of damage remains with the buyer during the move. MODERN RESALE staff is not obligated to assist with moving sold items and will only do so if they feel it is safe for them and or the piece that is being moved.3. Return of Purchased Items
A Buyer has 24 Hours to decide to return a purchased item for any reason. If the Buyer chooses to return an item, the Buyer is responsible for insured, return shipping charges from original purchase location, or to MODERN RESALE warehouse. All returned items must arrive in the same condition as they were in prior to sale in order to qualify for a refund. MODERN RESALE will not accept damaged or altered merchandise. After 24 hours from the time delivery is received, ALL SALES ARE FINAL and all purchase prices become NON-REFUNDABLE.
Unless agreed upon in advance, MODERN RESALE will store purchased items for up to five days. After five days the purchased item(s) will be considered a final sale. If the item has not been picked up after five days, storage fees will apply at a rate of $10 per day per item. Stored items will be released only after all storage fees are paid.4. Miscellaneous Terms
Listings. While we strive to provide accurate listing information on each item presented for sale, MODERN RESALE does not guaranty that the listing is fully accurate regarding the condition of any item listed for sale and further cannot guaranty the authenticity of any item. MODERN RESALE is not responsible for the accuracy of listing information provided by Consignors, has no obligation to independently vet the rights of any Consignor to sell any item, and is not responsible for the condition of the item upon delivery that differs in any way from the listing. You acknowledge that the items listed for sale by MODERN RESALE are used and are being sold without any warranties of any kind.
Availability for Sale. Items for sale on MODERN RESALE cannot be duplicated or replaced by MODERN RESALE should they become unavailable for sale for any reason. MODERN RESALE reserves the right to list items on its website for sale that are also displayed in its retail location for sale. From time to time, an item may still be listed as available for sale on the website after having been sold in our retail location. Should such an item become unavailable for sale while your online transaction is being processed, MODERN RESALE shall refund any charges for purchase price made by you, and if requested, can assist you in locating a similar item for sale.
Further, if another purchaser places an online order for a particular item before you do, you may not be the successful purchaser of an item. In such a situation, where the order cannot be accepted by MODERN RESALE because a previous order for that same item has already been accepted, MODERN RESALE will advise you of the same and refund any charges of purchase price that may have been made.
While we at MODERN RESALE strive to keep our site current, and remove any items from our site that have been purchased or withdrawn from sale by the Consignor, we cannot guaranty that all items featured on our website at any time are available for purchase at the time you visit the website.
FOR CONSIGNORS: The following Terms shall apply to all Consignors utilizing MODERN RESALE’S services:
1. Pricing and Payment
MODERN RESALE Inc. will pay consignor 50% of the selling price of any or all items that are sold during the first 30 days of the contracted period. MODERN RESALE will consult with the Consigner to reach mutually agreed upon selling price and minimum selling price to be listed on the MODERN RESALE selling prices chart below. After 90 days, the selling price will be automatically adjusted to the lowest selling price on the contract.
MODERN RESALE reserves the right to renegotiate the selling price on any given piece if it is delivered to MODERN RESALE warehouse in a condition that is not consistent with written discriptions or the consignors contract.
In the event an adjustment in the price needs to be made in order to expedite the sale of the consigned item, MODERN RESALE will contact the Consignor for his/her approval prior to making the sale.
After 180 days (6 months) the consignor will be contacted with the option of further reducing the selling price of any consigned items by an additional 20% below the lowest selling price in which case and additional 90 days of free storage will be provided. There is also an option to begin paying monthly storage fees at a rate of $35 per item per month (see storage section for further details). After 270 days (9 months), any remaining items under contract will be reduced by an additional 20% of the most recent lowest selling price ( or storage fees may continued to be paid ). After 365 days MODERN RESALE will evaluate a best course of action with the consignor which may include further reducing selling prices, arranging for the item to be donated to a charity in the name of the consignor or helping the consignor to arrange pick up at the consignors expense.
If the consignor cannot be reached for any reason, the selling price of any or all consigned items may be discounted at a rate of 20% every 3 months and after 365 days may be disposed of or donated at the sole discretion of MODERN RESALE.
In the event that MODERN RESALE sells a consigned item, the Consignor shall be paid upon delivery and final approval of the Buyer. Payments to Consignors are sent within 15 to 30 days after the buyer has received and accepted the item as a final sale.
2. Selling Policy
MODERN RESALE requires exclusive selling rights to all items being stored by MODERN RESALE. Any item being stored at by MODERN RESALE is considered under contract. If Consignor or any outside party contracts to sell any of the items under contract, MODERN RESALE shall receive a 50% commission of the maximum-selling price listed on the MODERN RESALE selling prices page plus all applicable storage fees.
Modern Resale will help to schedule incoming deliveries to our warehouse at the owners expense. Modern resale does not pay for incoming furniture deliveries.
3. Description of Items for Sale
It is the Consignor’s responsibility to provide MODERN RESALE with an accurate depiction of all items for sale including brand, name and dimensions of each piece listed. In addition, MODERN RESALE will require descriptive photographs of merchandise to be sold.
4. Reliance on Information
MODERN RESALE may rely upon any notice, information, photograph or other document provided by, signed by or on behalf of the Consignor and shall have no duty to make any inquiry or investigation of the validity of the information contained therein.
5. Condition of Items for Sale
MODERN RESALE may require minor repairs or refinishing prior to listing on MODERN RESALE site for sale. However, we do require all upholstered items to have a light cleaning, and sometimes a deep cleaning depending on the condition, prior to listing on the MODERN RESALE web site for sale. If any such maintenance is required, the Consignor may have the service done prior to delivery to MODERN RESALE at Consignor’s expense. Alternatively, MODERN RESALE can recommend a cleaning or refinishing service and make all arrangements for the necessary services to be rendered at the Consignor’s expense. MODERN RESALE will not be held responsible for any perceived damage resulting from an attempt by a recommended service provider to improve the condition of the consigned items.
6. Storage of Consigned Items
In most cases, MODERN RESALE will choose to store contracted items. MODERN RESALE Storage is free for the first 180 days (6 months). After the first 180 days storage fees are $35.00 per item, per month, thereafter. MODERN RESALE shall determine what is considered to be a single item. For example 6 dining chairs will be considered one item. Storage fees will be deducted from the amount owed to the Consigner (after the item is sold). Any item that is being stored by MODERN RESALE is considered under contract until either party terminates the contract and the consigned items are picked up. Consigned items must be picked up within 5 business days of contract termination or be subject to a $25 a day fee for each additional day. MODERN RESALE may terminate storage agreements at any time for any reason. MODERN RESALE is not obligated to store consigned items beyond the contracted period, and cannot not be held responsible for consigned items that are abandoned by Consignor. If consigner (seller) wishes to terminate his or her agreement with MODERN RESALE, and remove stored items from the MODERN RESALE warehouse, the consigner will be billed for storage fees for all months that the item was stored at a rate of $35.00 per item, per month, per consigned item. Consigned furniture can be picked up after storage fees are paid in full and the account is settled.
If an item(s) are delivered to Modern Resale in unsellable condition per the standards set forth on our web-site, storage fees of $25 a day will accrue beginning 3 business days after receipt. Ex: item is missing cushions or parts. Storage fees will end only when the item is complete and ready for sale or after the unsellable item has been picked up. After 7 days, Modern Resale will request that the incomplete item(s) be picked up or delivered back to the consigner. Failure to pick up incomplete or unsellable items will signal an abandonment of consigners property and item(s) will be subject to disposal at the discretion of Modern Resale.
The seller agrees to allow MODERN RESALE to rent, memo, or show (promotional events, design based selling platforms or blogs) any consigned items that are being stored by MODERN RESALE, for the purposes of exposure and potential sale of merchandise. In such cases, MODERN RESALE will be the responsible party should loss or damage occur during transit and display.
7. Damages and Defects
The Consignor MUST divulge all damages and or defects (visible and invisible) to MODERN RESALE and detail each instance of damage in the space provided on the Consignment Agreement. Supportive pictures must be provided to accompany all reports of visible damage or defect. MODERN RESALE SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY UNDISCLOSED HIDDEN DAMAGES AND FAILURE TO DISCLOSE DAMAGES MAY BE CAUSE FOR TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT. If a Buyer refuses a piece of furniture due to notable inaccuracies in the contracted condition report, the Buyer will be refunded and Consignor will be responsible for all return shipping charges.

Consignor hereby warrants and represents that all information provided to MODERN RESALE is true, accurate and complete.
